Processing should not be considered an optional DIY service, it should be mandatory. Having a pest control technician in your home regularly (preferably once every two months) will make a huge difference in maximizing your insect protection. And not only will you prevent a dreaded pest infestation with creepy insects crawling around your home, but you’ll help keep a clean and healthy home.
The professional pest control service will promptly identify pests that can cause structural damage so that you can preserve the life and appearance of your home. But not all pests attack your home’s structure, some create problems with electrical wiring or even spread disease to occupants.
Below is a list of five reasons why regular service should be considered a necessary service for any homeowner:
Potential Pest Problems Are Detected Early – Most insects or rodents can reproduce quickly once they find a habitable nesting area. This can create a snowball effect for the pest population in your home. A full pest control technician will be able to identify potential pest infestations and can prevent them from growing. You won’t have to worry about a growing pest population on your property. Your pest technician should not only deal with current pest problems each service, but also inspect potential problems.
Prevent Fire Hazards – Rodents have been known to chew on objects to file their teeth. If a rodent did not gnaw, its teeth would grow to a length that would prevent them from eating. Your home offers many items that they can nibble on. So, their luck is your bad luck. In particular, rats and mice will chew the electrical wires in your home creating an exposed electric current. This is a serious fire hazard and can ignite surrounding insulation or rodent nesting materials. A pest control specialist will inspect the rodents and identify any damage to electrical wiring.
Eliminate the risk of structural damage – Carpenter ants and termites damage the frame of the house, leaving you in a structurally unhealthy home. These pests will also wear down the wall cladding creating an unsightly appearance and removing some of the home’s protection.
Preventing the Spread of Disease – Especially rats and cockroaches leave excrement carrying disease. This droppings will become brittle and turn into dust. Dust contaminates the air making airborne diseases. Cockroach droppings often contribute to asthma in children. Rats can spread Hantaviruses and other life-threatening diseases. Thorough cleaning of the waste by a licensed pest control specialist will solve this problem.Simcoepest.ca
A parasite welcomes other parasites – Parasites tend to live in close proximity to each other because they feed on other parasites or your current parasite problem has created a welcoming environment for other parasites. For example, bees create honeycombs that attract beetles and ants. Sweet honey is a perfect food source for ants and cockroaches. So, if you have bees on your property, you may have other annoying pests as well.
