Anyone who has ever seen ants in the kitchen or spiders in the living room knows that it’s a pain to live with pests. An infestation can damage property, make the family uncomfortable and contaminate the home. For safe, effective and enduring extermination and for the following reasons, area homeowners should hire a pest control professional to treat the home for a Cockroach and Termite infestation.
The Family’s Health
Beyond the creepiness factor, pests may carry dangerous bacteria and harmful diseases that can make the family sick. For example, roaches can harbor E. coli and/or salmonella, and they can exacerbate health issues related to asthma and allergies. Ants may contaminate food, and wasps can cause painful stings and allergic reactions. For the family’s health and safety, the homeowner should call an exterminator at the first sign of a problem.
Eliminate and Identify Pests
Most exterminators can eliminate a variety of pests, including rodents, spiders and insects like termites and cockroaches. Different chemicals and baits are needed for different kinds of pests, and a licensed technician with Bowman Termite & Pest Management LLC will know the proper dosage and application method of each chemical.
Finding the Root of the Problem
A pest control pro can maximize the effects of treatment by finding the infestation’s source and eliminating it to prevent future problems. Sources of pest infestation can include garbage, plants, soil, egg batches, pet food and certain areas of the home.
A professional exterminator can provide more effective, quicker results than if the homeowner went the DIY route. Because of their experience and access to non-commercially available chemicals, they can quickly implement an extermination plan. Most services can be performed within a few hours, while a larger infestation that requires whole-house fumigation may take a week.
Avoiding Property Damage
While it may be expensive to hire an exterminator, it can help the customer save money over time. Many pests can cause damage, destroying clothing, carpets, floors, foundations, walls and rugs. Paying a pest control pro can help the homeowner eradicate the Cockroach and Termite problem quickly while protecting the home and minimizing the need for costly repairs.
