Has winter weather brought insect or rodent pests into your home? Have you been trying to get rid of them, only for them to keep reappearing a few days later? Whether you've got roaches, rats, or something else, dealing with them can be a very frustrating experience. Just when you think you've gotten them all, you turn around to evidence that there are still some dwelling in your home. In order to actually rid yourself of these pests, it's time to call in professional help. Although you may be reluctant to do so for a variety of reasons, there are also many good reasons why you should hire a professional as soon as possible. Some of these reasons include:
Pest's poison immunity: Whether you're spraying insecticide or have been trying to poison rodents with bait, it's possible for the pests in question to develop an immunity to whatever you've been using. You might think that you can simply switch to a different brand and continue your efforts, but many pest control products that you find in-stores have the same or similar active ingredients; only the amount varies. Fortunately, pest control services have access to a wider array of products. If it seems like your pests are becoming immuned to the standard active ingredient, they have others that they can switch to for a better result.
Safer products: Pest control products that you can buy at a hardware or grocery store are generally intended to be used sparingly over a short period of time. If you read all of the label and the warnings, you'll often find the manufacturer cautioning you about using the product too frequently and not to use it at all in the kitchen. Since many pests prefer to inhabit a kitchen, this product may be useless for you. Pest control services have access to products that are safe to use long-term. In addition, they'll have food-safe products that can be safely used in your kitchen to get rid of pests there.
Eliminate entrances: It's not always easy to tell exactly how or where different pests are gaining access to your home. You may already have blocked off the obvious entrances but it's possible that pests can, and are, still getting in via another entrance. A pest control services technician is able to go around your home and spot likely access points for various pests. You may be surprised at how many you have missed or overlooked.
