Pests are all around us. Keeping your place clean isn't always enough. Most pests are hidden from sight and can cause catastrophic damage if proper treatment and preventive measures were not applied.
Assess & Inspect
On the first visit, a pest control specialist will conduct a thorough inspection of your property, and if necessary, bring in state-of-the-art equipment, such as moisture meters, telescoping cameras, and UV lights, to help identify high risk areas such as entry points, leaks, and cracks. You can expect your first inspection to takes about 45 minutes to an hour, for regular visits 20 to 30 minutes. At the end of his inspection, he’ll provide you a report which outlines your problems and recommends a plan tailored to your home.
Implement & Get The Job Done
Your specialist should take care of any identified problems and install pest-monitoring tools in critical areas to help keep an eye out for pests. He uses the best tools and scientific solutions available to get to the root of the cause so he can thoroughly and efficiently treat your pest problem. And when he’s completed your service, he will outline what he did and when he’ll need to be back to keep you protected from pests.
Pests don’t come just once a year, so why should your pest control specialist? He should schedule appointments year-round to monitor your property and pest activity. He will check for new pests while monitoring the status of previous treatments. And if he sees something new or suspicious, he will investigate. A good specialist will continue to document your progress and problems to ensure the best maintenance approach for your property.
Talk with your specialist. While he has a specialized plan for making sure pests don't make it into your home, ask him for tips about making sure they don't make the effort at all. What is attracting them to your home and what changes can you make to make them less interested in getting in. These specialists are a wealth of knowledge and should be happy to help.
