Pests love Florida just as much as the snowbirds do. And they find your house, and every other house on your street to be comfortable places to live. That’s why it’s important to have regular residential pest control service to keep pests out, and from causing extensive damage to property right under your nose. If you’re new to homeownership, you might wonder what exactly you’ll get from regular service. Read on.
What do companies offering pest control service do?
A residential pest control service Jupiter will start with a thorough inspection of your property. They’ll look in every possible nook and cranny for signs of invading pests and, if necessary, assess any damage that’s been done. They will use the inspection to formulate a plan for regular pest control, and to address any immediate problems. The technician will answer any questions you might have and explain both the tools they will use and the costs associated with the service.
What to look for in pest control service
If you’ve just started your search for a pest control company in the area, there are a few things you should look for. Ideally, you want the company to be insured and licensed. You might also check online reviews to see if any red flags appear in terms of past clients or customer service problems. It’s wise to choose a company that’s been at this for a while, and that seems responsive to helping keep pests away from your home, and your family, for good.
What does treatment include
The treatment of your home for pests will depend a lot on what kind of pests the technician identified during their inspection or is trying to keep out. Some pests, like termites, require very different treatment methods than others like common roaches or mosquitoes. If it’s a regular monthly or quarterly treatment, you can expect the technician to spray a non-hazardous insecticide throughout your house along the baseboards, inside cabinets, and along the threshold of every door.
How often do you need treatment
Most pest control contracts include service once a quarter inside your home and throughout the perimeter. Many contracts also include a clause that if you see any problems with pests in between visits, that a technician will come out and address the problem for you before that period is up. If you have a considerable pest problem at the start, a company might suggest more frequent treatments at first before tailoring it back to a maintenance schedule.
