The Truth About Pest Control

General Pest Control    Mosquitoes    Rodents   

Do you have pests? I'm going to go out on a limb and say that if you don't live inside a hermetically sealed bubble, you deal with pests. Mosquitoes bite, fleas bite, ticks drop into your hair, bed bugs come to visit, roaches cluster in your walls, mice gnaw, flies buzz, and the list goes on and on and on. The truth about pest control isn't that you can be free of pests. It is all a matter of management. Here are the two major realms of influence.

Self Protection

You can protect yourself. People have been doing it for centuries. And, depending on what skills you have, you might even be good at it. You seal your exterior walls, eaves, roofline, windows, doors, chimney, and other entry points. You can practice exclusion methods, like sealable trash cans, fixing leaky spigots, decluttering your yard, filling in areas that collect rainwater, and keeping the inside of your home deep cleaned. You might even know to check groceries for the hole pantry pests make, to check your hotel accommodations for bed bugs, and how to prevent fruit flies. But honestly, all this can be a lot of work--and even if you have all the skills required, you still aren't 100% protected. Bugs, rodents, birds, moles, skunks, and other pests still get by your defenses.

Professional Protection

When you partner with a pest controller something amazing happens, not only do they take care of a lot of the work for you, they make the job you "have" to do, even easier. What is the job you "have" to do? Cleaning. You're going to be hard pressed to find a pest control company that will come over and clean the gunk off the sides of your oven. But you'd be surprised at all the things they "do" do, like lawn care, handyman jobs and other pest prevention related services.

If you have a service plan like the Preferred Care Complete Plan offered by American Pest, you don't just get protection from over 30 common pests, mosquitoes, ticks, and termites, you also get a barrier of protection that allows you to let your guard down. You don't have to keep everything spotless. You don't have to store all your pantry foods in hard plastic containers. And, you don't have to put your attic boxes in plastic bags. Exterior protection reduces your need to spend your days worried about excluding pests. Sure, you'll need to check for bed bugs, keep your trash sealed from house flies, and keep things maintained, but I'm here to tell you, it is a lot easier to maintain a home that has a pest plan in place. You'll even notice the reduction in mosquitoes. If you haven't lived a year with a pest plan, give it a shot. You'll wonder how you ever lived without it.
