How long have you lived in your home? Have you been there long enough to know that pests are a serious problem when they get inside? In our area, many different species of animals like to invade homes. We have rodents like rats and mice, insects like cockroaches and ants, and arachnids like ticks and spiders.
Chances are, you already know these creatures are around. Our question is, what are you doing to keep them out of your living areas? To help you combat pests around your Frisco home, here are some things to consider including the benefits of hiring a professional.
There are three categories of pests: annoying, destructive, and dangerous. Some fall into more than one category. Here is an example of each:
Fruit flies fall into the annoying category. These tiny bugs are a huge nuisance with the way they buzz around people’s heads and land on monitors and screens.
Termites are a good example of destructive pests. These invasive wood eaters destroy structures with their voracious eating habits and are a pain to eliminate.
Finally, there are dangerous pests like wasps and cockroaches. This category includes creatures that pose an immediate or passive threat to people and pets.
As for pests that fall into all three categories, rodents are a prime example. These furry home wreckers gnaw on everything in sight, tear up clothing and insulation to build their nests, spread disease, and make lots of noise late at night while people are sleeping.
One thing we are passionate about is informing homeowners of the dangers of DIY pest elimination. We are not talking about rat traps or spraying vinegar on your countertops. We are referring to the use of chemical-based pest control products. These powerful pest killers are not just dangerous to insects, rodents, arthropods, and arachnids. They also pose a serious risk to both humans and animals when used in the wrong amounts or in the wrong locations. In addition to this, many pests will avoid areas if they believe they are in danger.
There are many strategies that exist that help homeowners reduce pest pressures. For instance, many people use exclusion tips like sealing gaps and cracks in their home’s exterior foundation and installing door sweeps beneath doors. Other DIY tips include cleaning regularly, storing food properly, reducing clutter, turning off exterior lights at night, and making sure trash cans have tight-fitting lids. All of these tips are helpful, to a degree. We find that most homes have weaknesses that allow pests easy access to indoor spaces. Even with thorough DIY methods, completely preventing pests is just out of the question. This is why we recommend leaving your home’s protection to the professionals.
Many people write off pests and do not give them the respect they deserve. Without proper pest protection, you could be at risk of sickness, your home could be at risk of damage, and your sanity could be at risk of falling apart.
