When is the best time to get pest control? It is a question that we are often asked and finally have a moment to address.
Naturally, many people will wait until they see bugs invading their space before calling a professional. While that does work, it is like waiting to get a cavity before going to the dentist for a cleaning. For best results a year round regimen of monthly pest control will keep your home or business free of bothersome pests.
One of the most common calls we get in the spring time is from a frantic homeowner who is in the middle of their first BBQ of the year. It could be ants crawling up the BBQ or roaches on the patio furniture. Either one is more than enough to ruin an otherwise perfect Sunday afternoon. With regular pest control service, a protective barrier is established around the home and maintained on a monthly basis.
Bugs aren’t the only pests we start to see in the spring. Pigeons seem to appreciate the warmer weather and are often found on the eves of homes, under A/C units, or sitting atop a fence. Their droppings are not only unsightly, but can carry both disease and bacteria. Our experienced techs can rid you of the pigeons you have and take steps to discourage future pigeons from following. A combination of spikes, screening and netting can be used to pigeon-proof your property.
Whatever you do to keep the pests at bay, there is no better time than now to get started. As is said, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”. That couldn’t be more true!
