Here's Why You Should Get Professional Pest Control For Your Bay Area Home

How many occupants was your home built for? Four? Five? Ten? Sometimes it doesn’t matter how many bedrooms or bathrooms your home has, it’s how you use the space that makes the difference. What if we told you that your home could fit thousands of occupants without getting cramped? Of course, we aren’t talking about human residents but rather pests like cockroaches, ants, spiders, and centipedes. If you have been noticing some of these extra house guests around your Bay Area home, here are a few reasons you should consider investing in professional pest control services.

What Types Of Problems Do Pests Pose?

No two types of pests are the same, but all of the problems pests pose are able to be put in three distinct categories, danger, destruction, and disturbances. All pests fall under the category of disturbances. Stink bugs land on TV screens, centipedes run over walls and on ceilings, ants trail in and out of kitchens, stealing food. All pests are disturbing.

Some pests are also dangerous. Cockroaches, rodents, fleas, and ticks are all capable of carrying and spreading dangerous diseases either through their bites or through their fecal matter and urine. There are also many pests that are capable of causing pain with their stingers or bites, such as black widow spiders, brown recluse spiders, red imported fire ants, hornets, yellow jackets, and bees. If you are allergic to insect venom, a bite or sting from one of these pests could be fatal. Make sure you talk to your doctor to understand your risks.

Then there are a large number of pests that are known for damaging furniture, staining drapes, and destroying homes from the inside out. Carpenter ants, termites, and powder post beetles are the three most destructive pests here in the Bay Area which are specifically known for damaging the wood of homes.

Why Pests Are So Hard To Eliminate Without Professional Help

There are a large number of resources that exist on the internet that explain how to deal with pests. The only problem is that different pests require different solutions, and most solutions do not work unless implemented properly. Without the proper experience, it is easy to waste hundreds of dollars and find no relief from pest problems.

Why Proactive Pest Control Is Better Than Reactive Pest Control

Most homeowners react to pest problems as they arise inside their home. This is all well in good until you consider that many pests are dangerous and others are difficult to spot. If you react too late to a cockroach or rodent infestation, you or one of your family members could become sick. If you spot a termite infestation too late, thousands of dollars of repair work might be needed to restore your home. At the end of the day, preventing pests before they are able to cause problems is usually a better and cheaper solution.
