We aren’t the only ones living in our house. No, I don’t mean annoying brothers or sisters couch potato-ing in our living room – I meant icky, crawly, pesky pests. Occasionally, we get a visit from a colony of uninvited guests like termites, cockroaches and even eww… rats. Worse comes to worst, these uninvited pests make a home in our homes. And when we finally want to deal with these pests, we are faced with a dilemma: Do I call pest control services or just deal with it myself?
There are many reasons why most of us don’t call pest control services immediately. For most of us, it’s because we think it’s pricey hiring professional exterminators compared to just buying chemicals at the hardware and doing it yourself. D-I-Y is truly a cost saver, however, let me just give you 5 reasons why hiring professional pest control services is definitely worth the money.
There are a lot of resources on the internet on how to deal with pests the DIY way. But, as we all know, not everything on the net is accurate. There’s a reason why pest control is a knowledge-based work, it’s because exterminators handle some dangerous chemicals. And these chemicals aren’t to be handled by someone who just read something off the net without actual proper training on how to handle them. What if some of the chemicals accidentally spill on your skin, or you inhaled something poisonous. Don’t risk your health just because you want to save a couple of bucks.
Speaking of health risks, think about your family. What if your little ones accidentally come into contact with these chemicals? If you are not aware of the necessary precautions, then this isn’t a far-fetched possibility. Most pest control chemicals are toxic and poisonous and this could spell really-expensive-hospital-bills if you’re not absolutely careful.
Market approved DIY exterminating products aren’t bad. In fact, most of them are effective. DIY may be a viable option if you’ve only got a small infestation to deal with – if you detected the pests early, then by all means save money with DIY solutions. However, if you’ve got a sizeable colony in your house, then you need a more effective solution. Pest control experts certainly have more experience dealing with pests more than you do – they which pesticide would work most effectively on a type of pest. Do you?
To guarantee the quality of pest control services, the exterminators usually leave with a very important parting gift – free advice. To ensure that you don’t make yourself a return-target of pests, exterminators tell you exactly where and how the pests are making their way into your house. You can prevent another infestation by blocking these areas or cleaning them. They will instruct you on how to make your house a non-appetizing food for termites. Be sure to listen and act upon these tips, lest you call pest control services sooner than expected.
