Even though your house is neat and clean, this may not mean that your house is pest free. Unfortunately, pests seek out our homes for many factors that we can do nothing about. The fact is that pests will find their way into our homes at some point. Luckily, expert pest control services are here to make sure our homes and yards stay pest free. Here’s why this is important in Huntington, NY:
There are three reasons why we currently live significantly longer and healthier lives than at any other time in history. These include: our methods of sanitation, vaccines and medication, and pest control. Pests have long since been the carriers of life-threatening diseases. Today, despite our array of incredibly effective vaccines, pests are still responsible for a litany of diseases. To name a few: E.coli infection, hepatitis, tapeworm, the Zika virus, and Hantavirus. Because there is no way of knowing if the mosquito in your yard is carrying West Nile Virus, or if the mice living in the walls are carrying lyme-disease-carrying ticks, it is important to act preventatively. Routine pest control services can significantly reduce the risk of coming into contact with disease-carrying pests.
Destruction to Property and Belongings
Pests not only have the potential to do damage to our health, they are also notorious for damaging our property and belongings. Carpenter ants and termites can literally destroy the structure of your home. A few insects very quickly turn into an infestation. An infestation can chew its way right through your home, board by board. The worst part is, because they like to hide in the walls, you may not even be aware that you have carpenter ants and termites until the integrity of your home is compromised, and it’s too late. In addition to the wood-faring insects, mice, silverfish, and carpet beetles will chew through a number of organic materials. Whether it be clothing, furniture, carpets, or bedding, there is nothing worse than finding your belongings destroyed. Because homeowners are so often unaware of a pest problem until the damaged property is discovered, it is vital to act preventively. A pest prevention regiment can go a long way in ensuring that your property and belongings are protected.
DIY is Insufficient
Because pest problems are usually hidden from view, it is important to know where and how to routinely monitor and eradicate any emerging pest problem. Biotech Termite & Pest Control professionals are experts in both pest prevention, and finding and eradicating the root of the pest problem. Unfortunately, many of the over-the-counter pest control methods available to homeowners only make a dent in an infestation and misapplying products can actually make infestations worse. DIY methods may end up not working, and can waste money, time, and energy. Biotech Termite & Pest Control professionals will investigate and determine what pest control methods are necessary for your particular situation.
Contamination of Food
There is nothing worse than opening a bag of flour to release a faceful of Indian-meal moths. Pests love to eat—and a lot of them love to eat our food. Mice, rats, ants, and cockroaches are particularly found of our food scraps. Nobody wants to eat food that has been gotten into by pests. To protect your food from potential contamination, and to protect your grocery budget, a pest prevention regiment is essential.
