Pest control may sometimes seem like a do-it-yourself project for homeowners. However, it probably shouldn’t be on the DIY list at all. Although there are ways to combat certain pests yourself – like mice, cockroaches and scorpions – with bug bombs or traps, sometimes even these common bugs require a professional to rid them of your home. So where do you draw the line?
Your Traps are not Working
Think about it like this: if you’ve only seen a few mice here and there, you can probably subdue them yourself with a few traps. However, once you notice the traps are not working, or that you are seeing mice more often, it’s time to call a professional pest control service. This goes for other pests, as well.
If you’re having recurring infestations, you likely never truly got rid of the problem in the first place. Once you notice bugs in or around your home, call a professional who can use specific techniques and chemicals to eradicate the problem.
Sometimes pest infestations can cause health problems, so you should contact a professional immediately upon finding out you have one. Dustin Pest Control exterminators specialize in removing ants, cockroaches, bed bugs, fleas, ticks, rodents and wasps from in and around your home. They are aware of how quickly these pests can multiply, which is another reason you should contact a professional once you see them. From one day to the next, hundreds can turn into thousands.
Consider scheduling routine visits for exterminators to check-up on your home even when you’re not aware of any pests. This will keep your home pest-free before it gets out of control.
