When was the last time you had a professional pest inspection or pest control treatment at your home or workplace? Often proactive pest control can be a lot better until waiting until pests are a problem.
If you notice signs of a pest problem at home or work, chances are the critters have already moved in en masse and made themselves at home – in your kitchen cupboards, under your house, in your attic or walls … from ants crawling across your kitchen benchtops to cockroaches scuttling under your fridge or underneath your bathroom vanity; from debris and droppings to spiderwebs in your cornices, to strange sounds of little footsteps or even chewing in your walls – these are all indications that you have an issue with pests. Even having Rover or Mitsy scratching furiously is a sign that you need a pest inspection.
“Prevention is Better than a Cure”.
Engaging and partnering with a reputable pest control company near you to carry out proactive pest control services on your property is the best way to prevent pest outbreaks and infestations from occurring at your home and workplace. While pests are adept at hiding inside walls, under floorboards, and in other hard-to-reach places (and often remaining hidden for many months or even years), pest control professionals have the training, insight, and effective remedies to quickly and easily detect and eliminate the presence of pests, from ants and cockroaches to rodents and termites.
Hiring the right local pest control services (like Proactive Pest Solutions, the leading Sunshine Coast pest control company) to manage the risks of pests at your home or other property is important for an array of reasons.
Top 5 Reasons to be Proactive with Pest Control
1. Human Health Risks
Many pests pose a serious health risk to humans (not to mention family pets). For example, rodents carry viruses and can cause various serious diseases. Ticks are carriers of Lyme disease, and mosquitoes carry diseases including Ross River Fever. Fleas carry parasitic worms. Mites, bed bugs, and other pests can bite and cause itching and sores. Even cockroaches can cause allergies to flare up in humans.
Some of these diseases are potentially life-threatening. The only way to ensure your safety and that of your loved ones (or employees and clients, if in the workplace) is to prevent pest activity.
2. Threats to Property Integrity
Pests can cause significant property damage. Termites literally eat homes. Silverfish and moths eat organic fibres, including books, storage boxes, photo albums, clothing, and rugs. Rodents chew electrical wiring, and their urine can also damage your property.
3. Pests Spoil Perishables
Ants, cockroaches, and rodents love human food – and will help themselves wherever and however they can. They can contaminate your food supply and your utensils, including perishables kept in boxes in your pantry and fruit kept in a bowl on your kitchen benchtop. They track germs and leave droppings, eating and returning with more of their colony-mates. Some will even taint the produce you grow in your garden.
4. Pests are Costly
It can cost a lot of money to eradicate an established pest colony and repair the damage it has caused by the time its presence is identified. It’s important to understand too that most insurance policies (for home or commercial purposes) don’t cover pest-related damage or repairs.
If you’re a business (especially food-based), the presence of pests can ruin your reputation and your livelihood – eliciting fines at best and forced closure at worst.
5. Peace of Mind is Priceless
Scheduling regular pest control with your preferred local provider is the best way to mitigate all of the risks associated with pests in your property, giving you reassurance and peace of mind year after year. There’s no better way to eliminate the inconvenience and worry related to pests and prevent infestations before they occur, which is why proactive pest control is so important.
Regular pest control inspections and maintenance treatments are imperative for keeping your home and family safe – and if you are a business owner, keeping your business viable as well.
Professional pest controllers not only know pests and how to find and eradicate them, but they also understand the appropriate use and handling of the chemicals that are toxic to these pests and which must be used to eliminate them.
It’s important to ensure that the pest control company you engage provides a 12-month guarantee on all general pest control treatments. We promise this – and much more – at Proactive Pest Solutions.
