While pest control is a fairly standard part of home ownership, there are some people who believe that they can do it all themselves. Although there may be a few instances where DIY pest control will suffice, for the most part, regular visits by a professional are the only way to keep pests at bay.
Why you can’t always do it yourself
With professional pest control you get better products, expert application, and usually a guarantee that the job will be done right. That translates to money saved. Many people believe that they can go pick up a can of insect spray at their local store, and they will be able to put an end to their pest problems. Unfortunately, this approach can actually make pest problems worse, especially when it comes to treating roaches – which can build up a resistance to over the counter pest products.
When is professional pest control necessary?
There are times when professional pest control is your only good option. Nuisance wildlife is one such instance. Georgia has specific laws that govern how wildlife can be handled, and pest control professionals with licensed wildlife trappers know all the ropes. When you decide to get rid of that raccoon on your property you could very well be breaking the law and get injured in the process. Wildlife removal and exclusion is something best left to the pros. Severe pest infestations are another time when it is just smart to hire professional pest control. The technician can help you get rid of your infestation and help you prevent it from happening again. Finally, termite control is something that should definitely be left to the professionals.
Why professional pest control may be best for your home and family
Going with professional pest control usually presents far fewer risks than the DIY pest control methods. A trained, certified technician knows how to apply the product and where it is more effective. This means that they can save you a great deal of money and time in the long run. What’s more, a professional knows what products are labeled for application in areas where humans or pets will be present and the best application techniques to reduce unnecessary exposure. In short, when you go with a pest control professional, you have more peace of mind that the job will be done responsibly and done right.
Weighing the pros and cons
When you are trying to decide whether to go with a professional pest control technician or do your own pest control, weigh the pros and cons carefully. Even though doing it yourself may seem less expensive at first, it can often far exceed the cost of a professional application. The quality and security of a professional application are also very important and should not be overlooked. In many cases, after a careful assessment most people will find that they are better off going with a professional pest control company than trying to do it themselves.
