Here in Katy, the weather is perfect for its native pests. Not only are the winters here short and the summers hot, but year-round, it's partly cloudy and wet; if you know anything about ideal conditions for mosquitoes, spiders, and other insects native to the area, these are ideal weather and breeding conditions. For that reason, ongoing pest control should be part of your regular home maintenance responsibilities. Contact Katy pest control professionals for your residential pest needs.

Why Pest Control Is A Year-Round Task In Katy

Most people tend to think that pest control is a one-and-done type of thing, and it's just not. Just as the seasons and weather change, so do the pests in the area. For example, termite swarmers only come out once a year. When you see them, they're a direct indicator that you either have a termite problem or are at risk of one; They also indicate you need a termite inspection of your home.

There are, of course, other insects that only come around because you've made a mistake and left food out or provided breeding grounds for certain pests after a rainstorm. Things like that are why you have to protect your home and family year-round with our services.

All The Ways Pests Can Wreak Havoc In Your Home

Pests don't belong inside your home, so as you can imagine when they do get inside, they can do some real damage in more ways than one.

When pests get inside your home, they put your health at risk. Rats are notorious for being the spreader of the bubonic plague with the fleas they carry. Cockroaches not only carry bacteria all over their bodies but also cause allergies from their droppings and carcasses. Additionally, all stinging insects and spiders put you at risk of venom-related illnesses. The diseases carried by mosquitoes are numerous and spread with a single bite.

Structural damage is another concern when pests enter your home. Insects like carpenter bees and termites are known as wood-destroying pests that will eat or hollow out your wood structures, making areas like support beams, your roof, and your foundation structurally unsound.

Lastly, when you have certain pests in your home, they bring about other pests in your home as well. Pests like flies, ants, and cockroaches are food sources for other more dangerous pests like spiders and scorpions, so if you start seeing smaller pests in your home, you'll want to rid your home of them before predatory pests enter your house looking for those insect food sources. 

The Hassle Of Do-It-Yourself Pest Control

The term 'DIY' isn't a new phenomenon, but it seems that way once all the home improvement TV personalities started using it and making viewers think they too can install an entire roof by themselves (exaggeration). Nonetheless, when it comes to pest control. Do-it-yourself measures just aren't worth the hassle.

DIY pest control for your home is only effective as a preventive measure after implementing professional pest control. Why? Without knowledge of the pests you're dealing with, knowledge of how to use pesticides, or knowing where breeding grounds are, you're going to make a multitude of mistakes and not solve the pest issues in your home. 

Take a look at the hassles of DIY pest control:

  • Spraying bugs and causing them to scurry to other areas of your home
  • Implementing pest control during the wrong times of day
  • Treating the wrong areas of your home
  • Chemical burns from not wearing proper protective clothing
