Pest control can refer to a wide variety of services. If you ask teenagers, they might define it as getting rid of their little siblings. If you ask homeowners, you will find the more common answer, getting rid of bug or animal infestations in a residence. Depending on what part of the country you live in, and what type of residence you occupy (house or an apartment) there are different pests that can invade your home.
Types of Pests:
Types of Animals:
Aligators (most common in the Florida region)
Unfortunately, some homeowners have to deal with getting rid of unwanted pests. Most homeowners resort to do it yourself products like Raid when dealing with insects. While this may be a great short term solution, in order to stop the problem completely, you must find the source. Killing a few ants may common with a type of instant gratification, but if you do not find out where the colony resides, you are more than likely to see more and more insects invade your home.
This is where a qualified pest control services comes in handy. A pest control company, or as some call it, “the exterminator” have both the experience and the tools to identify the specific pest, and the source of your infestation. By using their previous knowledge, and top of the line products, they have the ability to return your household to normalcy from anywhere between a few hours or a few days.
When choosing a pest control company be sure to find out how many years experience they have, and if they are willing to give out references. There are several fly by night pest control companies that come in and spray the house, but do not actually find the source of the problem. Make sure that you find a reputable company that will explain your options and that will come back in case of new sitings of unwanted pests. If you are uneasy about choosing a local company there are several national chains that of pest control solutions. These companies, which I will not name, are licensed and insured, bonded and have plenty of references. Not only do they have the experience but they have the backing of a national brand and their guarantees.
