There is nothing more disturbing than walking into your kitchen in the middle of the night to get a glass of water and seeing cockroaches on your kitchen counter and floor. You probably think that having a tidy and well-kept home is bound to be pest-free, however, that’s not always the case. Pests can prefer some homes more than others for various reasons and most of them are not even remotely related to cleanliness.
However, critters, bugs, and pests, in general, are a part of life and research shows that the average home in Southern Ontario has over a hundred different species of beetles, flies, spiders, ants, and other bugs living within the walls.
I know that this fact may give you a case of the heebie-jeebies, but not all hope is lost. Luckily, you can easily avoid such scenarios by opting for effective pest control treatments. You can choose from a host of options – store-bought products, DIY solutions, hiring pest control services, and more.
Pest Control Treatment Options
The problem with store-bought pest control solutions is that you can use them for months and still not see any substantial improvements. Most people believe that a single chemical product can effectively work for different types of pests. However, there is no one-size-fits-all solution. Plus, store-bought treatments can be very unsafe, particularly if you don’t follow the manufacturer’s guidelines.
Most DIY-ers believe that by using more of the product, the results will come faster. Nevertheless, the truth of the matter is, by using more than the recommended dose of pest control chemicals, you are only adding unnecessary chemical residue throughout your home’s surfaces, creating an unsafe environment for your family and pets.
Many do-it-yourself or store-bought treatments seem to get the job done, when in fact, they only tackle the tip of the iceberg. These solutions can only get rid of what is visible on the surface. In most cases, the source of your pest infestation is hidden. For that very reason, and many others, the smartest idea is to find an affordable pest control company and hire their services at the first sign of a home pest invasion. These professionals are trained to stop an infestation at its roots, they know what to look for, how to treat it, and how to get rid of pests for good.
Benefits of Hiring a Pest Control Company
One of the biggest perks of hiring a reliable and affordable pest control company is that the experts will first inspect your home and develop a treatment plan accordingly. Experienced professionals can quickly and effectively treat infestations, helping eradicate pests and prevent future infestations. These companies are equipped with top-notch tools and products that are detrimental to pests but safe for your pets and family.
Generally, there are three kinds of pest control – preventative, traps, and chemical. Some companies practice integrated pest management which includes creating physical barriers and improving sanitation. Other typically used pest control techniques include insecticides and mechanical traps.
