When you own your home, you want to protect it from all kinds of damage, including pest damage. A good option to consider is having scheduled treatments from a residential pest control company. Here are pests professional treatments can help with.
Termite treatments are separate from routine pest control treatments. It's an important service to have for your home since termites do a lot of damage and they can work unseen. The pest control company might set up monitoring stations underground that show when termites are active in your yard. The stations also double as bait stations that supply bait the termites take back to the colony to kill it off. Termite treatments also include liquid perimeter treatments, indoor injection treatments, and fogging.
Mosquito treatments are another type of add-on treatment that you may want to keep the pests away during the summer. If you have a play area outside or a pool, you want your kids to play without worrying about mosquito bites. Mosquito treatments can minimize the number of mosquitoes on your property so you can enjoy your patio and do more cooking outside without being bothered by the biting bugs. You may need a few treatments stretched over the summer to keep mosquitoes away all season.
3. Indoor Bugs
Summer often sees an uptick in roaches and ants indoors. Spiders might be more plentiful in the winter as they seek warmer hiding places. All seasons of the year are suitable for certain pests to invade your home. Having treatments every quarter or on another schedule all year keeps bugs at a minimum so you don't have to worry about infestations that can spread germs or do property damage to your home. A residential pest control company can help you determine the right frequency for your treatments and where they should be applied.
Rodents can be a problem, especially if the rats or mice are attracted to your yard or a neighbor's yard for food. Rodents move close to a food source, and a good place to live is inside a home where they have comfortable temperatures and shelter from rain. Once you have a rodent problem, the pests can be difficult to get rid of. Residential pest control companies offer rodent control too. They can trap and remove the pests from your home or yard. Then they can plug up entry holes to keep the rodents from coming back.
