What are the benefits of continuing my Pest Control Service through the winter?
Often, homeowners and businesses don’t address pest issues until they see evidence that they have a pest problem. When that happens, they call a pest control expert to resolve their immediate pest control needs.
Unfortunately, once they have the pest issue under control they believe the problem no longer exists. When something is out of sight it is often out of mind. Meaning they no longer give much thought to the issue. That isn’t good – maintaining year-round pest control will prevent you from being steamrolled come the winter thaw when spring arrives.
“There are numerous pests to contend with (rodents, cockroaches, termites, bed bugs, fleas, etc.) each with their own season. Most of our service calls in January, February and March are for rodents and roaches and with January fast approaching the time for action is now.”
The truth is that pests are just waiting for an opportunity to invade and survival is their objective during the cold winter months. Let me give you an example to consider. Rats react differently to bait. They will avoid anything new in their environment for several weeks. Once they are comfortable with a baiting station they will begin to investigate and take the bait. This is how a baiting station works, they eat the poison and die keeping rats in check. When you stop your pest management service it’s just a matter of time before they take over. Left unchecked, the process must begin again and usually with more rats to eliminate. What a disgusting thought, sharing your home with disease carrying rats.
The benefits of year round pest control
Let’s go back to “out of sight, out of mind.” With a professional pest management plan, you don’t have to give pest control much thought and for the right reason. You can live free from pests. With an annual service plan, your pest control technician arrives several times a year and maintains the appropriate levels of pest control product or bait on a continuing basis. First, treating the outside of your home so pests don’t enter and treating existing interior issues. The result is that pest are kept under control.
