Recommended Frequency Of Pest Control Service

As bugs start creeping and crawling their way through a home, millions of questions develop in a homeowner’s head. Questions like: Where are these pests coming from? Will they eventually go away? Can I do the job on my own? Should I hire a pest exterminator? Which pest control service is right for me?

All of these questions can leave one quite baffled. But there is plenty to ponder to ensure a bug problem is effectively removed at the lowest possible price. To achieve this happy medium of cost effective pest control service, you must find a regular pest control service that comes frequent enough to prevent pests from being on your property without being overkill.

Although each pest infestation is different, a bi-monthly (every two months) pest control service is your most cost-effective service. However, there are some variables to consider when making this choice.

A regular bi-monthly service usually covers pests like ants, spiders, silverfish, crickets, earwigs, and wasps. Any other pest may be considered a specialty pest. A bi-monthly service will not work for specialty pests, ask your exterminator about service options for these types of pests.

Also, the products and thoroughness of your pest control service will determine if a bi-monthly service is right for the serviced property. A pest exterminator should be able to control pests with service every town months, if not, consider another company.

Why the bi-monthly service, you ask?

Generally, pest control products are effective up to two months after distribution. With a bi-monthly service, a technician will be able to re-apply the products so you always have a protection barrier for pests.

Other service options like a one-time service or monthly are too little or too much. One-time pest control treatment will eliminate pests on the surface, but what about their eggs concealed deep within cracks or crevices. Plus, once the pesticides wear off your at risk for another pest infestation.

A monthly pest control service is probably too much treatment and you’re paying for unnecessary services.

Bugs Are Gone…Why Should I Continue Service?

With heavy pest infestations the first few services are to get the pest population under control. After the initial services that is a more preventative approach. The pest technician should continue to treat targeted pests & areas but put a heavier emphasis on identifying potential pest problems. Usually at this point, treatments are primarily exterior.

Find a pest control service that offers free re-treats. A free re-treat allows an exterminator to eliminate a pest infestation that flairs up between services – at no additional charge. Basically, having free re-treats is like having pest control service whenever you need it.

Do-It-Yourself Pest Control

Buying DIY pest control products from a hardware store is another option you may consider. But also consider that the products at a hardware store are only what’s available at a consumer-level. Commercial pest control products, only available to licensed pest control applicators, are more effective and targeted.

You may end up purchasing multiple products before you find one that effectively treats your pest infestation. It is not just a matter of spraying pesticides all over your property. You must know techniques and specific areas to distribute the product. A licensed pest control technician will know how to strategically treat targeted areas and pests.

Ample time, money, and effort is required for effective DIY pest control.

In conclusion, talk with your pest exterminator about service options and guarantees so you can get the best pest control service at the lowest price today!
