Why is regular, on-going professional pest management service so important? Some pests multiply more slowly this time of year, but others take their place and are even more active now. On-going service provides the best protection against the constantly changing invaders, and is your best value.
Rats and mice will be especially troublesome during the months ahead. Each year over 23 million households in the U.S. fight winter rodent infestations. These pests have been outdoors multiplying and eating during the warmer months, and now are looking for warmer, drier shelter. Homes and garages provide needed shelter, and food and moisture as well.
Mice and rats don’t just eat and contaminate your food, they can transmit diseases, are a source of allergens, and can chew through wiring and insulation, which causes further damage and occasional fires.
Many other pests continue to multiply and cause damage indoors, including ants, cockroaches, fabric pests, stored food pests, fleas, spiders, and others. You may even inadvertently carry home some of these pests in shopping bags and boxes.
On-going service can catch all these problems early, preventing expensive pest damage and making your home safer and more comfortable. Another great benefit of having fewer pests, plus their damage and droppings, is that cleaning and maintaining a home is easier! We all can use that during the busy holiday season ahead.
