Take it from Action Pest Exterminating, one of the most trusted pest control companies in North Carolina: spending a small amount of money on regular pest control is far better than waiting until a serious problem arises – one that could compromise your budget and your home. Here are some thoughts from our pest professionals on why it pays to be proactive.
Pest control is one of the key factors in maintaining a healthy home, right up there with modern-day sanitation methods and medicine. And these days, some pests are becoming more resilient to standard prevention measures – for example, mosquitoes carrying the Zika or West Nile viruses, and ticks bearing Lyme disease. Mice and rats are also known disease carriers, with one of the worst being Hantavirus. These illnesses pose a danger to anyone in your home, especially children and the elderly. And since it’s impossible to know whether an insect is carrying a disease, our local exterminators believe it’s best to err on the side of caution.
Professional pest control is also vital for maintaining the health and quality of your household’s food supply. It’s a long list of insects and rodents that enjoy a good meal at a homeowner’s expense, with the most common perpetrators being mice, cockroaches, ants, and moths. And while not all of these pests carry diseases, if left to their own devices it won’t take them long to contaminate your food. Outside your home, pest control is key for warding off insects such as aphids, which if given the chance will wreak havoc on your garden’s fruits and vegetables.
From a budget perspective, this is reason #1 to utilize the pest control services of a professional exterminator in North Carolina. The most notorious home-wreckers are termites and carpenter ants, whose presence can be almost impossible to detect with an untrained eye. They work remarkably fast and will cause catastrophic damage if left unchecked. Then there are pests like silverfish and carpet beetles, whose typical milieu is anything fibrous: carpets, towels, couches, and the like. Without expert pest control, you could be putting your belongings at serious risk.
DIY problem-solving is very useful in a variety of situations, but pest control isn’t one of them. Most over-the-counter “solutions” only treat the problem as seen on the surface, without rooting out the actual cause. It’s often the case that a homeowner will spend hundreds of dollars and dozens of hours simply controlling an infestation without actually removing the problem permanently.
Your Peace Of Mind
Nobody wants to spend their free time chasing down pests and rodents. Nor does anyone want to live with the daily specter of a potential rodent problem or termite infestation hanging over their head. By hiring a professional pest control company, you gain perhaps the most important benefit of any listed here: the peace of mind that whatever problem you have will be eliminated.
