How Many Times A Year Should Pest Removal Be Done At Your Home?

Pests come and go during the year. In the spring and summer, bugs are heaviest. In the fall and winter, the bugs disappear. Maryland is like most east coast states in that regard. You can predict when an infestation is coming or leaving. 

So, can homeowners prepare adequately for when pests invade a home? And, if so, how often during the year should pest control be done?

Professional pest removal can help remedy an infestation. So, scheduling regular pest control treatments for twelve months is a proactive way to prevent pest invasion and prevent the homeowner from having to do the pest control on their own. 

First, do you need regularly scheduled pest removal? Yes, Pest Shield, Inc. recommends treating your home once or four times a year. These treatments would include preventing bed bugs, termites, fleas, ants, spiders, silverfish, earwigs, and rodents from infesting your home. ***

During each treatment, our pest control technicians will monitor hot-spot areas for changes in pest activity. We will utilize environmentally friendly pest control barriers. These barriers include sprayed applications and rodent traps that are pet friendly. Your home will be guarded against common pests for an entire year. 

Second, is termite control. Using Termidor, America’s #1 termite treatment solution, Pest Shield Inc. will protect your home. We use Termidor, HE which eradicates termite colonies within ninety (90) days. It works regardless of your soil type or where you live in Central Maryland. 

Third, summer bugs. There are five summer bugs in Maryland that you want to watch out for during the summer: ants, cockroaches, centipedes and millipedes, spiders, and silverfish. Proactive pest control before they hit your home will keep these bugs out of your home and protect you from the damage they can do.

Your summer should be enjoyed with cookouts, swimming pools, and yard work. It should be bug-free. Our Pest Control, Inc. technician will inspect your home and look for common entry points. They will report any gaps and then do a perimeter pest control treatment to keep bugs out. We recommend doing this quarterly to keep pests out of your home.
