Pests affect us in a number of ways, some of which are listed below:
- They’re aesthetically displeasing.
- The contaminate your food.
- Some of them (termites, for example) feed on wood and eat away at your furniture.
- They bite us, causing itching and irritation.
- Above all, they also lead to allergic reactions and respiratory issues.
Dealing with pests is quite an expensive affair if you don’t do it the right way. The good news is that most pest management services offer quarterly pest control plans that keep your home pest-free throughout the year.
Here’s why you need to opt for one:
Prevention is better than treatment
Most pests live in colonies that are hidden in the corners of your home. Let’s take the example of a crawlspace. When was the last time you went into your crawlspace and looked for a rodent infestation?
Months of neglect give these pests ample time to reproduce and increase their colonies. A quarterly plan will help you stay ahead of them.
Professional pest management services have the right tools and equipment to penetrate neglected areas, while also monitoring the growth of these colonies.
Frequent checks help you look for warning signs and control infestations at their early stages. It’s also a lot cheaper than paying for repairing structural damage later.
Get rid of seasonal pests
Winter is in full swing! And most people make the mistake of assuming that pests become inactive at this time. This isn’t completely true. Most pests make their way inside your homes in winters to seek warmth and food.
Common winter pests include mice, rats, and roaches. Each season way paves the for new species of pests. Scheduling an appointment every few months helps you address the issue as it arises.
The best way to align your pest control service with a change of seasons is to opt for a quarterly pest control treatment.
More convenient than annual plans
Scheduling your pest control plan for equal intervals is convenient from the homeowner’s perspective as well. Your pest control company will keep a check on when the next session is due without you having to worry about it. Your service will space out the sessions in a way that’s in line with the normal pest reproduction cycle. This way, the colonies won’t have much time to re-grow.
In addition, paying for the plan all at once is a lot more feasible than paying for each session separately. Most services charge you on a one-time basis and that payment includes all the costs. You don’t have to go looking for a new service and new plans every few months.
