No Bugs: Do I Still Need Pest Control Services?

For many, pest control services aren’t on their radar—until they have a serious pest problem. Then, it’s a mad dash to find a good pest control company and get rid of the problem ASAP.

But what if there’s a better way? A less stressful, easier, and more proactive way to deal with common household pests? The good news is, there is—and it’s regular pest control services.

Even if you don’t have an obvious pest problem right now, it’s still a good idea to consider year-round pest control. Let’s talk about the main reasons why, below!

Prevent Pest Problems Entirely

Have you ever heard the old saying, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure?” Essentially, this saying means that it’s easier to prevent a problem than it is treat it.

This is often true for pest control. A pest control professional can help you avoid many pest problems with advice and action steps tailored to your unique home. For example, if your home is vulnerable to mice and other rodents, a pest control professional can seal up cracks and crevices where they might enter. If your home is vulnerable to termites, the professional prune back trees and shrubs close to your foundation and apply barrier treatments.

By taking the proactive step to get pest control services now, you can often avoid major pest problems down the road!

Detect Infestations Early

Not all pest problems can be avoided, even if you do all the right things. You might bring home bed bugs from a hotel, for example. Or ants might invade your pantry from their nest outside.

Unfortunately, by the time the average homeowner notices the signs of an infestation, it’s usually a big problem! That’s because pests are small and very good at staying hidden.

However, with regular pest control, these problems can be caught early—before there’s a catastrophic infestation. Experienced pest control pros have the knowledge and tools to check for the subtle signs of invading pests. They can then work to quickly and easily eliminate the problem!

Finding a pest problem early makes elimination easier and faster, but that’s not the only advantage. Early detection and elimination of an infestation can also:

  • Save your belongings from destructive pests (like bed bugs and clothes moths)
  • Protect your home from property damage caused by certain pests (like termites, rats, mice, and squirrels)
  • Maintain your home’s property value
  • Save you time and money on more time-consuming, costly treatments needed for major infestations

By taking the proactive step to get pest control services before there’s a catastrophic problem, you save time, energy, and money in the long run!

Maintain Peace of Mind

Many homeowners get year-round pest control services simply because they’re a smart investment in their home. However, regular pest control is also an investment in you—your own time, energy, and peace of mind.

The peace of mind that comes from having regularly scheduled visits from professional pest control can be invaluable. Consider: you’ll never have to worry about pesky, destructive, or even dangerous pests taking up residence in your home. You’ll never have to spend time and energy on ineffective DIY pest control. You’ll free up your own mental space, since you know that the pros are there for you.

What to Look for in Year-Round Pest Control Services

Now more than any other time of the year, pests are seeking warmth and safety as the colder months approach—and are very likely seeking ways to enter your home. (After all, your home is like a beacon of food and sanctuary for them.)

When looking for a pest protection program, it’s important to choose one with year-round protection and quarterly treatments. An effective pest maintenance program should include complete barrier treatments to both keep the bugs away and reduce the pest population around your home. In addition, a good pest control maintenance program should address a variety of pests: both common household pests and any pests that are problematic in your area.
