How Often Should You Use Professional Pest Control Services?

When it comes to pest control, prevention is everything. The professionals recommend that you don’t wait until you have a problem. You want to make sure that you are preventing pests from ever entering your home by taking precautions both inside and outside. Pest prevention is not a one-time thing. It takes regular service in order to prevent pests. But how often should you seek out professional pest control service?

Staying ahead of the pest-infestation game is the key to success. More issues develop when you procrastinate and delay service. The frequency of your pest control service is based on the quality of the services and how thorough they are. Hopper Termite & Pest provides affordable treatment plans and options, based on the needs of your specific property and home.

For termites, a normal schedule would involve initial inspection and treatment followed by an annual inspection. Another form of termite treatment is the use of bait stations, which require maintenance and monitoring year-round. These stations are strategically placed around your property. Rather than the termite colonies infesting your property, they “take the bait” and bring them back to their colonies – instead of living in and damaging your home.

A Pound of Cure

There are three areas Hopper Termite & Pest recommend to be inspected and treated in order to cure and/or prevent pest problems.

  1. Outside Perimeter Pest Control – Pest control doesn’t start at your property. It starts around your property. That’s why we have someone examine and control pests on your entire property, including your front yard and backyard, to see which pests need to be eliminated and which are simply a part of the ecosystem.
  2. Home Perimeter – Of course, prevention also requires protection at your home. We explore the outside of your home and seal/caulk all open areas so that pests are unable to enter your home or invade. Exclusion is the best way to keep pests away, and when combined with the latest pest control technology, any pest that tries to enter will be denied.
  3. Inside Your Home – Finally, we apply any additional baits or protection necessary on the inside of your home. We use as few chemicals as possible, and take special care to only apply pest control techniques that will be effective at eliminating any pests that somehow find their way inside.

As we move through the months of the year, different pests can raise their ugly heads! If you’ve ever been the victim of a rodent or flea invasions, you know exactly what we’re talking about! Warmer areas are going to have more of a pest concern than colder ones, and this is even more of a concern if you live near a water source such as a river or lake.
