If they’re in the right time and place, anyone can stomp a scurrying cockroach. It’s easy to deal with one tiny critter, as everybody has a tremendous size advantage. But uprooting the infestation at the source is another story.
Professional pest control experts have knowledge and tools that most people don’t. No matter how handy you are around the home, there are things they can do that you can’t. Here’s what they are.
1. Proprietary Chemicals
Most people rely on store-bought chemicals when spraying under their kitchen or bathroom sinks to keep pests away. Such chemicals aren’t likely to solve the problem entirely. Pests may not like them, but it won’t keep them away for good.
On the other hand, emergency pest control services have access to stronger, custom chemicals they cook up based on their expertise. You won’t find these chemicals at your local hardware store because they aren’t commercially available.
Use chemicals that experts rely on instead of the basic products found at the corner store.
2. Specialized Knowledge
Anybody can spot a pest once they’re visible and apparent. Detecting the signs of a nest or spotting attractants on the property is harder to do and requires specialized knowledge most people don’t have.
Leading experts can recognize the early signs of an infestation or breeding ground and fix it before it becomes a problem. They also know in-depth information about every species of pest — their response to German cockroaches will be different from Oriental cockroaches.
Taking the optimal tack to kill the specific thing in your home is well beyond the capabilities of the layperson, who seldom know the habits and tendencies of each pest subspecies.
3. Home Protection Plan
The only thing better than uprooting an infestation is preventing one from occurring in the first place. Leading pest control companies can visit your home to conduct an inspection and tackle any issues they find on the property.
After treating for any existing pest issues, they’ll remove any attractants and ensure there’s nothing to encourage breeding grounds on the property. Most people don’t think about pests in their homes until it’s too late. If you opt for this service now, you can enjoy peace of mind without this ever arising.
4. Pet Safe Methods
Professional pest control experts’ custom sprays are not only stronger; they’ll also be sensitive towards any pets in your home. Commercial chemicals aren’t always pet-friendly, and they aren’t necessarily environmentally friendly, either.
In contrast, leading pest control experts use Health Canada-approved chemicals that are sufficiently nuanced to be tough and sensitive wherever necessary. Chase out the pests in your home without harming your four-legged buddies!
It’s impossible to feel at ease at home when you know pests are inside. They’re icky and can even cause allergic reactions or other health problems. You may feel moved to action immediately upon seeing one of these disgusting things in your home because it’s the last thing anybody wants to find. However, professional pest control experts have better tools and deeper knowledge, so don’t hesitate to give them a call.
