Imagine getting ready for work in the morning. You go downstairs to make your pot of coffee and when you come back to fill your cup, you notice two little antennae swirling around. It just makes the whole day bad. Did you know as cooler weather approaches, insects look for warmer places to hide and your small electrical appliances are the perfect places? Having professional pest control services can give you piece of mind, but also benefit you in other practical ways.
When compared with a DIY approach, you will be saving money in the long run by contracting with a professional company. It is easy to compare the cost of one bottle of all-purpose house spray to the quarterly cost of pest control and go with the do-it-yourself route. But this comparison is not an accurate reflection of what it takes to keep your home pest free. An average yearly cost to professionally treat your home is around $300-$400. The average cost to repair a pest infestation can cost thousands. Here are other economic benefits that truly reflect the cost:
One of the biggest advantages of having a professional come to your home on a quarterly basis is the ability for your technician to detect early issues before they become expensive problems. They are trained to look for the smallest details that homeowners tend to overlook. Their experience and skilled training allows them to know how pests behave. Being able to properly identify species also plays a large part in effective treatment. Quick detection of the source prevents costly and hazardous infestations. It saves you stress, embarrassment and damages.
Time is Precious
When you factor in the time it takes for homeowners to treat their premises, it becomes an additional cost factor. Life is busy. You shouldn’t have to spend it chasing bugs and constantly monitoring every little creepy crawly. A good pest control company will also perform routine checks on the exterior of your home. If a problem develops in between quarterly maintenance visits, most companies will come back out to your property as part of your contract.
Peace of Mind
Taking something off your full plate is always a good thing. A lot of companies are going green these days and that means safer for your entire family, fur babies too! It is a piece of mind that adds to the benefits of hiring a professional to guard your home from disease carrying pests.
