We hear this question all the time; “do I really need a pest control company in Modesto?” The answer depends on your situation. If you have noticed any pest problems or cockroaches or anything like that around your home, it is a very good idea to get a pest control inspection at the very least.
In Modesto, we deal with all kinds of pests all year round. These pests can invade your home, commercial businesses, and any other space that humans commonly inhabit. A pest inspection will be able to identify whether or not you actually have a pest problem or if you just have a few random pests that don’t really require any treatment.
That being said, if you’ve noticed droppings around your home, in cabinets, or you see several pests around your house, there is a possibility that you do have a pest infestation. At the very minimum, you may need to button some things up around your home in order to prevent the pests from entering your house. It’s entirely possible that they haven’t formed a nest within your house but are coming in through cracks in the walls or gaps under doors.
A professional pest control technician will be able to identify where they’re entering your house and why they are staying there.
Below are a few of the biggest reasons and signs that you need to get regular pest control…
DIY pest control isn’t working
DIY Pest Control can help to treat some of the most common and least harmful pests. Oftentimes DIY works for cockroaches, sometimes fleas, and pests that aren’t necessarily harmful and are common around Modesto California. However, if you have tried DIY pest control and it hasn’t worked, it’s time to contact a pest control professional. The professional will identify how the pests are entering your home, what food and water sources are present, and give you specific customized tips on keeping them away.
If you have a pest control problem with any other type of pests such as rodents, poisonous spiders, bed bugs, termites, or any other pests along those lines, you need to contact a pest control professional right away as these are problems you will not be able to handle on your own.
You notice signs of infestation
If you notice pests around your home often, you notice chew marks anywhere around your home, you are finding droppings under your sink, or any other sign of infestation, it’s time to contact a professional pest control company.
Once you have an infestation it’s very hard to get rid of this on your own. The reason being that after an infestation has occurred, there can be many nests throughout your home, in crawl spaces, attics, basements, etc. This requires a multi-faceted treatment plan and professional level insecticides to eliminate the problem.
If you have an infestation, this also means there is a clear entry path for these critters to enter into your home. A pest control technician will need to identify this entryway or the entryways that these pests are using to enter your home and help you patch up the holes.
A pest control technician will not only help you patch up the holes, but also put an invisible barrier in place to prevent the pests from entering again, perform the initial extermination service to kill the infestation, and then create a customized year-round pest treatment plan to keep them out of your home forever.
You moved into a new home
If you just moved into a new home, it’s a good idea to get a professional pest service. You never know if the previous tenant had pets with fleas that were untreated, bed bugs, or any other insect problem that can develop into a major issue for you and your family. At the very minimum, you should contact a pest control company and have them perform an inspection for you to identify whether or not there are any issues that could be treated early.
Your neighbor has an infestation
We often see pests go from one house to the next. This includes any type of pest such as rodents, cockroaches, and pretty much everything else. What can happen is if your neighbor has a rodent infestation, these rodents will begin to make their way over to your house via adjoining trees and power lines. They can make their way onto your roof and then into your attic, into your walls, and form nests where they will then breed and turn into an infestation.
If your neighbor is getting pest control, what can also happen is as their house becomes inhospitable to the rodents, they begin looking for a new home. If your home has not been treated then they will immediately make their way to your house and begin to infest your property. If your neighbor has an infestation or is getting their home treated, it is a very good idea to get your own home treated at the same time.
You have a commercial space with a pest problem
If you have a commercial space, then you should be on year-round pest control whether you have a pest problem or not. If you do have a pest problem, it is especially important that you get professional pest services. Whether you have a restaurant that serves customers or a building where you rent office space, the last thing you want is your customers dealing with a pest problem.
