There are so many spurious half-truths flying around out there about pest control that it can make it next to impossible to separate the facts from the fictions. We want to do the best we can to clarify matters for the good people of Sunrise so that they may make informed decisions about their pest control needs. With that in mind, we have set about busting some of the biggest myths about pest control wide open. Here are our picks:
#1: It’s a DIY job
Okay, Bob the Builder, put down the bug spray! Everyone likes to think that they can fix it, but there are some things you need to leave to the professionals, and pest control definitely comes under that banner. A well-trained pest control professional will know exactly what to look for and where to check to establish the precise kind of pest or pests that have invaded your home – and even if you think you know this already, you should know that it’s entirely possible that there are more than you are aware of. Different kinds of pests require different methods of treatment, too, and you need an experienced professional to decide which is appropriate in what contexts.
Another reason why you don’t want to undertake the job of getting rid of pests by yourself is because often, the results never last! Soon enough, you’ll find yourself on your way back to the hardware store to get more pest control solutions. So leave the job to the professionals who can eradicate pests from your home and do it in a safe manner.
#2: Doesn’t pest control use dangerous chemicals?
Do pest control companies use dangerous chemicals? Some pest control solutions do require the use of chemicals to solve, but the real question should be, “dangerous to whom?” since, after all, we would not get very far with them if the chemicals were harmless to the pests we aim to eradicate. The important thing is to deploy them in such a way that they will not be dangerous to you, your family, or your pets. This is another reason that pest control should never be undertaken by amateurs.
#3: It will cost a fortune!
At Guarantee, we offer very reasonable rates on all our pest control services. The precise figure will, of course, depend on the nature of your problem, but one thing is certain: the longer you leave it, the greater the cost to fix it. This is generally true of all home maintenance tasks, though none more so than pest control, where your home could be in the process of being literally destroyed underneath your feet. The best way to keep the cost of pest control down is to invest in prevention, rather than a cure.
