Whether you are a homeowner or own a commercial building, you will need to hire a pest control company at one point, either as a routine maintenance exercise or an emergency pest control exercise.
By killing and dealing with the different types of pests like cockroaches, mice, rats, flies, mosquitoes, fleas, and spiders, there are a lot of problems that pest control companies can solve for you, including;
1. Damage to your building
Pests like termites and mice can cause damage to the wooden parts of your house like the wooden frames and drywalls.
Termites are the most fatal because they feed on cellulose materials in those wooden parts of your house and create fungus that can not only cause rot but also cause those parts to fall off. Rats, on the other hand, make holes in your building’s walls, and you may not even notice them.
However, the continuous defecation and urination on your walls will not only damage them but also cause foul smells around your house. To eliminate the termites, the pest control company may use localized treatments, but some buildings may require a tenting process.
The mice can be captured using traps or poison them using food baits.
2. Spending lots of money and time
Once you notice any pests or rodents in your house, the first instinct is to use pesticides, some of which can be very expensive.
Also, the damages caused by the pests will need to be repaired, and in some cases, you might need to buy new items, like clothes, bedding, and sofas, damaged by those pests and rodents.
Paying a pest control company for maintenance checks will not only help save you time but also the money you would have otherwise spent on the repairs.
It also saves you the time you would have spent cleaning the pests droppings, dead bugs, and fallout from all the damages caused.
Pests like mosquitoes, flies, and spiders are commonly known for spreading diseases and illnesses not only among you and your family but also among your pets. Calling a pest control company to deal with them before they spread can help eliminate the chances of getting any illnesses.
Flies cause illnesses like cholera and typhoid by contaminating your foods and drinks. While you can eliminate the flies using traps, there are chances that you will leave their eggs all over your building’s surfaces, and the cycle will keep going.
However, a pest control company will not only deal with the flies but also their eggs. Fleas also spread illness, especially in your pests, and if they come into contact with you, they might spread that illness.
Spiders are also very dangerous as their bites could be fatal and lead to death. While dealing with pests on your own, you tend to use a lot of pesticides, which also cause some diseases especially respiratory diseases.
However, if a pest control company comes and fumigates and deep cleans your once, it will take a long time before any pests come back to your home.
4. Lack of sleep
Ever tried sleeping in a bug-infested bed or a house full of mosquitos? Well, you are not going to have a lot of sleep because you’ll spend the whole night itching and scratching, which will be not only uncomfortable but also painful.
Bugs are some of the most difficult pests to deal with, but a pest control company will ensure the problem is gone. Depending on the level of infestation, they may use different ways to deal with them or recommend that you get rid of your bedding and replace them with new ones.
You can also be sure that the noises you hear from rats and the bites from mosquitoes will be gone after the pest control company thoroughly inspects and cleans your building.
