Five Reasons You Should Consider Hiring A Residential Pest Control Company  

Pest control isn’t something we do only during the spring and summer.  a lot like allergies. Just because the pollen is gone doesn’t mean that the bugs are gone. As we have written in past blogs, residential pest control is a year-round affair. 

When you call a residential pest control technician, you are calling the experts at regulating, managing, and eradicating pests in your home. Pest control professionals exterminate pests safely and efficiently. At Pest Shield, Inc., we have studied the habits and habitats of bugs and other pests in Western Maryland and the Washington, D.C. area. 

As you enjoy the upcoming holidays and plan for the New Year, you may want to think about hiring a pest control company. Here are five reasons to consider:

  1. Keeps your family safe from diseases. Household pests carry any number of serious diseases. Those diseases may include Lyme Disease, Salmonella, Tapeworm, Typhus, E.Coli, West Nile Virus, and Babesiosis just to name a few. These diseases are transmitted by biting, stinging, or by exposure to feces.
  2. Pet safety. Your beloved pets are also targets for pests. Dogs and cats can be infected by ticks and fleas. But, they can also suffer from bee stings, wasp stings, and other types of stinging bugs. Additionally, if they are bitten by mosquitos, that can cause heartworm. Mites cause mange. Influenza is also carried by several bugs. Your pet is definitely in danger from pest infestations. ***
  3. Protection from toxic chemicals. There are many different pest-eradication products in the marketplace. You can find them at your local garden store. They offer easy and inexpensive “pest control.” Unfortunately, these commonly-used sprays are quite toxic. They contain chemicals that may cause health issues. If they are supposed to kill pests, is that something you want to be absorbed in your body every day? 
  4. Stronger emotional health.  A pest infestation can cause serious emotional stress. Pests are dirty and can mess up a clean area in your home. Having a pest problem in your home makes you feel dirty thus affecting your social life. You won’t be entertaining friends and family. Pest infestation is also embarrassing. No one wants to see bugs scurrying across your table as you are having dinner with your close friends. A pest control service eliminates that possibility. You will attain peace of mind. 
  5. Protect your furniture. Pests love wooden furniture. So, your wooden frame couch or oak dining table are prime targets for termites, carpenter ants, and other pests. They will hide in sofas and couches as they are nests for hair, fur, and dust. Bugs can wreak havoc on your furniture. Pest control protects them from damage and you don’t have to spend thousands of dollars to replace them. 

As you see, pests at any time of year can damage your health, your home, your furniture, and your social life. Don’t let that happen. Contact your pest control company and have them do an analysis of your home and get 2023 started safely.
