The Advantage of Having a Pest Control Plan

You know what they say: an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. When it comes to pest control, we definitely believe it. There are many advantages to having a pest control plan for your home.

Why should you consider a pest control plan? Keep reading to find out why we recommend this option to many homeowners.

Why Have a Pest Control Plan?

Most homeowners discover a pest control problem by accident. They might turn on the bathroom light late at night and see a cockroach scurrying across the floor. They might wake up and notice lots of bug bites that weren’t there when they went to sleep. Or they might see dozens of ants lining up in the kitchen one day.

By the time the average homeowner—who doesn’t have any special education or training on pests—notices a problem, it’s typically a big problem. Most pests are small, quick, and above all—sneaky. They typically fly under the radar for some time, increasing in numbers until you have a big infestation on your hand. Of course, that’s if you notice a problem at all. Some pests (like termites, for example) can go unnoticed for months or even years! During that time, they can wreak havoc on your home.

The average homeowner has a reactionary approach to pest control: they discover a big issue and need to call a pest control professional ASAP to contain the problem.

But there’s a better way: a proactive pest control plan.

With a pest control plan, you can catch small pest problems before they become serious and even prevent some pest problems in the first place.

Having a pest control plan in place gives you peace of mind and can even save you money in the long run. Avoiding a termite problem, for example, can save you thousands of dollars in repair costs to your home. Preventing rodents from entering your home can avoid repair costs from their chewing and replacement costs for contaminated food, as well as safeguard your family’s health against their diseases.

What Does a Pest Control Plan Involve?

A pest control plan is a proactive approach.

Typically, a pest control plan involves regular inspections and treatments around your home to keep pests out of your home. The plan is tailored to your home and your needs.

ScherZinger Pest Control’s Guardian Program, for example, attacks and repels common pests so they never have a chance to invade your home.

Our technicians use a specialized formula and administer treatments seasonally in key entry areas, like windows, doors, vents, pipes, and eaves (where pests typically enter). With this program, we create a soil barrier around your home’s foundation and significantly reduce the pest population around your property.

With a pest control plan like the Guardian Program, you’ll have pest protection year-round—not just when you have an emergency. Plus, you’ll enjoy the peace of mind that comes from knowing your home is safe and secure from destructive and dangerous pests.
