Why Hire a Pest Control Professional

There are a number of at-home pest contract products on the market, so why do you need to hire a professional pest control company. While your first instinct might be to reach for one of those do-it-yourself products, the problem is that they rarely work, especially on a long-term basis.


Also, pest control professionals have the training to understand pest life cycles and other important information about pests such as food sources and what attracts them and their specific habits. They also know when the best time to treat them to keep from having an infestation.


As mentioned, at-home pest control methods are rarely a long-term answer. There are many DIY remedies out there that may work for a short time but don’t tackle the root of the problem. Take fire ants for example, in order to kill a colony, the queen must be affected, and most DIYs aren’t strong enough to get to her as she is well protected by the other ants. This method is only killing the ones you visibly see, not the hidden ones nor their young or eggs that will mature and reinfest your home.
