Have you recently been invaded by critters with six or eight legs? Do you want to get rid of your new "house guests" as soon as possible? Your first instinct may be to go to the nearest store and buy all of the various insect-control products that they sell. While these can sometimes help, a real infestation calls for professional help. While you may be reluctant to go this route, there are several reasons why you should consider calling out an exterminator to tackle the creepy-crawlies that are plaguing your home. Some of these include:
Safety: Insecticides and other pest control products that you can buy off the shelf at the store are often designed for limited use. If you use them liberally, your children and your pets could wind up being exposed to toxic levels of the chemicals that they contain. It's possible that there might even be enough to harm a grown adult such as yourself. On the other hand, the chemicals used by a pest control company are different. They are designed for maximum use with minimum side-effects for the people who have to live with the chemicals. While you would still not want to do something as ridiculous as drink the chemicals that the exterminator uses, you should have much less to worry about as far as the risk of exposure is concerned.
Cost: Pest control products that you buy from the store are not cheap. Just a few products may run you a hundred dollars or more and they may not even work fully. By the time you've bought and tried everything from your store, it would likely have been less expensive to simply hire an exterminator in the first place. In addition, many exterminators offer a warranty or guarantee of some kind for a certain period after you've used their services. If they do and the problem doesn't go away or seems to get worse, they will come back for a more thorough reapplication at no cost to you.
Time: Dealing with pests on your own is also expensive in terms of time spent on the problem. Perhaps you spend a few hours applying bug spray to the places where the pests seem to be getting inside, then a few days later you spend a few more hours deploying bait traps. When these don't work, you then pack up your pets, your kids, and spend most of the day away from the house while you deploy bug bombs. Instead of dealing with all of this wasted time, an exterminator like All Seasons Pest Control will come out and do all of the work for you. While he or she is putting down bait traps or spraying your home, you could be working on other projects around your home.
After living with a pest problem in our home for years, I kind of figured the bugs were there to stay. I had tried just about every kind of at-home treatment that I could think of, but nothing was working. It was frustrating, but I knew that there had to be something that could help. After failing for what seemed like the millionth time, I finally decided to work with a professional exterminator. The expert was incredibly proficient and knowledgeable about pest problems, and remarkably, he removed all of the pests from our house that day. This blog is all about working with a pro to eliminate pest problems.
