Household pests don’t normally make a point of properly introducing themselves before moving in. Like most problematic and unwanted houseguests; Stepmothers notwithstanding; the more they make their intrusive presence known, the more they bug you. [Pun absolutely intended]
The real issue here is those pests which make a habit of having their presence remain unknown. Realistically most insects go out of their way to stay out of the way. In a world where everything is bigger than you and out to eat you, that seems like the logical course of action. This line of reasoning remains true inside your home as much as in the outside world. Many a critter in a home will go out of the way to stay out of sight. Many insects avoid light, sense vibrations to alert them, and remain active at night to avoid such encounters. These factors help ensure that it’s the pests that you don’t see which cause the biggest issues for homeowners.
Termites, fire ants, and a plethora of venomous bugs are all cases of common household pest species that you’d probably wish you had known were present earlier, rather than any unpleasant encounters later. Termites cause home damage, fire ants can harm small pets, and venomous bugs can be a threat to yourself as well as children.
Be proactive anytime you have the unhappy encounter of coming across a problematic pest inside your home. Once you know there is a problem, then you can treat that problem. The steps of identification, assessment, and proper treatment are a homeowner’s best tools. These steps are also a pest control technician‘s mantra.
I know many of you, myself included, do not have the time to deal with or even properly treat for many household pests. You have to be on top of it, buy dangerous chemicals, and then find the time after what I assume was a hectic workday to then actually treat the home. It’s honestly a bit of a hassle and generally more expensive to do on your own then if you hire a professional. The nice thing about professional pest control services is that even if you’re calling for an initial pest problem, the continued services become preventative treatments ensuring any future home invasions. It’s guaranteed, safe, and effective. That over-the-counter bug bomb in comparison to that? Maybe not so much.
Don’t hide from your pest problem. Seek it out! If you don’t I can almost guarantee there’s a few creepy crawlies winning at a game you may not be playing, but are definitely losing at.Tags: ants, centipedes, cockroaches, commercial pest control, earwigs, eco-friendly, fleas, Fort MIll SC, hornets, millipedes, mosquito control, mosquitoes, pest, pest control, residential pest control, Rock HIll SC, rodent control, rodents, silverfish, spiders, Tega Cay, ticks, wasps
