5 Major Reasons You Should Get Rid of Your Pest Problem – Today!

Pests are well, pesky. They disrupt the order of your home, ruin the reputation of your business, and downright destroys everything you hold precious – be it your lawn, favorite sofa, or the big bag of Cheetos you keep in your kitchen cab for those lazy afternoons you don’t feel like whipping up a salad.

These tiny little vermins may seem like an insignificant threat now, but they proliferate faster than you can imagine. Their numbers double when you’re enjoying a good night’s snooze; their offspring triple while you’re off doing your usual 9 to 5 grind – the moment you realize their prominence is the moment you’ll regret not taking action when the home invasion was still not an infestation. Now they’ve built nests you can hardly keep in check – above the ceiling, below the floors, between cracks and crevices, underground, and practically every part of the house that’s hidden from plain sight.

It’s common to make this kind of mistake. After all, who would’ve thought that a harmless little mouse could breed an entire generation? Or, that an innocent little roach you tried to spare because you remember the story of “The Spider’s Thread,” turned out to be the very root of an entire colony.

Mistakes happen and that’s completely normal. But after many years of being in this line of work, we realized that educating our clients about the proper handling of (potential) infestations is the one best way to avoid worst case scenarios. So trust us when we tell you that the best way to prevent an infestation is to call the pest police immediately after the first sighting. Here’s why:

Reason 1: It Only Takes Two to Tango

Just two of the same species – male and female – and your house will turn into a fiasco. Walk in with a cute little tick couple on your jacket and next thing you know they’ve decided to have their honeymoon on a crack on your wall. Infestations are not infestations right from the start – they begin small. And slowly (but surely, if not helped), they will spread like wildfire.

Reason 2: Prevention Costs Are Cheaper than Wide-scale Extermination Costs

A regular check-up will not hurt as much as having to rebuild an attic or purchasing a new sofa. Depending on your pest problem, you may lose a lot of significant and expensive items due to the infestation. And I tell you, having to replace all of them will not come cheap.

Reason 3: Pests Pose Significant Health Hazards

Rats, cockroaches, blood-sucking parasites, mosquitoes, and several other pests carry infectious and blood borne diseases that may be very dangerous or even fatal. These pathogens and toxins usually come from their bites, pee, and contamination.

For a comprehensive list of insect blood-borne diseases, here’s a good resource from Rentokil.

Reason 4: They Can Easily Destroy or Damage Your Belongings

Got a chic new Prada bag? Or, sporting cool new Jordans? No problem! The mice will take care of it. Pests are highly destructive. They don’t really see value in things the way you do and they certainly don’t know how to pay them back when they chewed off a little too much.

Reason 5: They Are Not a Treat to Look At

Pests are unsightly. I’m not one to stereotype but pests really are suggestive of a home being unhygienic and dirty. Think about it. Do you really want your next guest witnessing an infestation in your very home?
