So, what animals are actually considered pests?

  • Insects
  • Spiders
  • Bed bugs
  • Cockroaches
  • Termites
  • Rodents

Infestations of any of these and others can cause significant damage to your home, health, and your quality of life! It is a big deal, and you’ll want to choose an effective way to deal with them so that you and your family stay happy, healthy, and safe in your own home.

When homeowners see a spider or an ant or two running across the kitchen floor, they usually reach for a can of bug spray. When rodent droppings are spotted, you might set a trap.

 It feels like the quickest and easiest solution.

Really, this is going for the trial-and-error method of pest control. We know you don’t want to spend money on things that don’t work, but be warned, if you are doing this more often than you think, you may be letting the most common pest species build up to plague proportions!

Maybe you are not convinced. Let’s look at a few reasons why you should hire a professional for your pest control.

Your Health

The number one reason is health. Both from the point of view of what the pest can bring into your home in the way of germs, diseases and decaying matter, but also from the perspective that you might not be trained in understanding the chemicals you are handling and what a build-up or mixture might do to your health.

As trained professionals in Pest Control, we know how to store, transport, and apply chemicals that will rid your home of the pest but not harm your family. We have all the protective gear, and we know what safety measures we need to take to apply it and can advise you when you can walk on or mop your floors and how.

Pesticides are toxic. That’s how they kill bugs, by being lethal. These are the sort of things you don’t want to mess around with in a casual manner, You could do irreparable damage to both you and your property. Use a professional who can guarantee everyone’s safety when it comes to spaying chemicals around.

Keeping Your Home Safe

Another good reason is the protection of your property. Not only can we help keep your family healthy, but also your home and property. All sorts of pests like rats and silverfish can get into your wardrobes and ruin your clothes. They also love carpets, and rugs and can do incredible damage to your floors and walls if left unchecked. Bug spray just isn’t going to work in some cases.

Damage to soft furnishings is distressing, but it’s mind-bogglingly expensive and inconvenient when pests get into the structures of your home. Prevention by treating your home sooner rather than later can save time and money in repairing the damage from these invasions.

Ignoring the pests isn’t going to make them go away, either. It’s always good to get an investment property checked every year, too. Tenants won’t care as much as you will and may not be keeping an eye out for things like termites the way you would.

Have you considered that Professional Pest Control is also a way of protecting and valuing your assets? Termites can do a significant amount of damage in a short amount of time and if you can show regular inspections, both a potential buyer and an insurance company will see that favourably.

Professionals can see termite activity and trails long before the owner becomes aware that they have even moved in. An inspection could really be a stitch in time for you! Professional Pest controllers know where to look for termites, their damage, and how to treat the area to stop termites in their tracks. If you’ve ever had termites or have neighbours that have, getting a yearly termite inspection is a must!

Rodents are a pest all on their own that can cause your house to burn down! Dramatic? Maybe. But rats and mice chewing merrily away on your electrical cables in the wall can do just that.

While cables are coated in plastic insulation, rodents seem to love to chew on them, exposing metal with live currents flowing through them. Exposed wires can short circuit, spark, and hey presto, a house fire.

If you have an inkling that you have rodents in the ceiling roof or walls of your home, do yourself a favour and get a yearly inspection – just in case!

As we mentioned, quality of life and feeling safe and healthy inside your own home are important. Bugs, rats, and other unwelcome guests may just scare you occasionally if you are lucky, but they can also structurally damage your home or make you sick.

It’s always good to know that critters aren’t building up to ridiculous numbers because every year you get them dealt with. People who have regular inspections usually nip these issues in the bud and spend time and money on their families instead of on maintenance and health issues.
