There will always be problems in life that demand solutions. Some problems are more easily fixed than others. If you find yourself on the side of the road with a popped tire, looking up a video on how to replace that tire with the spare in your trunk may be worth your time and effort. However, if your car's engine is not working properly, what are the chances you will try to fix the problem on your own? The same thing goes for pest control. If you have annoying, dangerous, and destructive pests threatening you and your home, how wise is it to deal with them alone?
Doing Pest Control Yourself
The first thing you should know about pest control is that every pest is different, and different pests require different kinds of treatments to keep them out of your home. If you find a great internet resource on keeping cockroaches at bay, you may be able to reduce cockroaches in your home, but you won’t solve the rest of your pest problems. Cockroach-prevention steps will not treat for rodents, rodent-prevention steps won’t work for stink bugs, etc. Then there are pests such as bed bugs and termites that are almost always impossible to treat with DIY alone. The truth is that DIY pest control can be costly, stressful, and time-consuming, especially for someone who is untrained.
Problems Pests Cause
Pests are everywhere, and they come in a variety of shapes and sizes. The problems pests cause can be split into three categories.
Annoying: These are your everyday pests, nuisances around your home that drive you mad, but couldn’t hurt you if they tried. Some pests that fall under this category include flies, centipedes, stink bugs, and most species of ants.
Dangerous: Pests in this category do not always appear dangerous. For instance, you are aware of the dangers of black widow or brown recluse spiders, but did you know that cockroaches, mice, and rats can be just as dangerous with the diseases they spread?
Destructive: These are pests that don’t pose a major risk to you, but rather to your home. Pests in this category are wood-destroying pests such as carpenter bees, carpenter ants, and the most destructive of all, termites. Give these pests enough time in your home, and you can expect your home's value to drop.
