Pests and rodents aren’t just unsanitary, they can also cause upheaval and unrest in your home. In fact rodents (i.e. mice, rats, squirrels) are known to harbor and transmit more than 200 human pathogens that can spread dangerous and sometimes deadly diseases. Termites, on the other hand, cause an average of $5 billion in property damage every year, while stings and bites from various insects are the cause of at least 90 deaths in the U.S. annually. Which is why you should consider using a professional pest control company.

While you might think that taking a DIY approach to pest removal is the quickest and easiest way to rid your home of pesky rodents or insects, it can actually be dangerous and highly ineffective. Thankfully, with the help a professional pest control company, you can reap the many benefits of knowing the qualified experts have your back. Check out these three main advantages when it comes to partnering with the pros:

They Know How to Safely and Effectively Use Chemicals

Many effective infestation solutions involve the use of strong chemicals, which can be hazardous to human health if not used properly. Not only are professional exterminators highly trained in handling these chemicals, but they are also qualified to use stronger, commercial-grade products that can kill and repel pests much more effectively and efficiently than over-the-counter chemical formulas.

They Can Properly Identify

To the untrained eye, many types of insects and rodents can look very similar. Professional pest control services, however, are specially trained to identify the exact species of pest and know exactly what it takes to completely and entirely extinguish the problem.  

They Can Provide Long-Term Solutions to the Problem

Fly-traps, mosquito repellants, and rodent traps might seem effective for short periods of time, but rarely do they actually take care of the problem. Professional pest control services can identify exactly where your pest problem is stemming from and develop a plan that offers long-term solutions so you don’t have to continuously worry about a recurring pest infestation.
