Common Myths About Professional Pest Control
You can find almost anything on the Internet, but one thing that seems to be all over the Internet these days is misinformation. While some of it may not be deliberate, it can certainly be confusing and can give you the wrong idea about things like pest control. Well, being a pest control company, we want to get out in front of some of these common myths and give you the truth about certain things in our industry!
- Pest Control Treatments Are Harmful to Your Family
This is an incredibly common myth in the pest control world, and one that doesn’t really hold any water. Sure, sometimes treatments are needed to get rid of a nasty infestation, but by the time you are cleared to enter your home, it will be safe to enter and free of pests. By exercising caution and listening to the professionals, you won’t need to worry about putting your family in danger by turning to a pest control company when the going gets tough.
- The Time to Consult a Professional is When the Infestation is Out of Control
To debunk this one, it’s best to think of this like going to your dentist. Yes, you need to turn to your dentist when you have a toothache which just won’t go away despite your best efforts, but that doesn’t mean that you don’t see your dentist when your teeth are feeling fine. In fact, you probably go twice a year for a cleaning and a check-up, which sometimes may end up with your dentist recommending preventative care. Think of pest control in the same way: Yes, you’re going to want to call when the infestation won’t subside, but you should call for preventative measures regularly, based on how pest-prevalent your region is. Business owners may be more inclined to take preventative measures than others, but that doesn’t mean that you need to hold off until the infestation becomes unmanageable.
- All Pest Control Companies Are the Same
Just because you’re paying someone to do it doesn’t mean that you’ll have the same experience and results across the board. Same thing goes for pest control companies—only companies which are up to date with the latest pest control technologies and are certified in their field are the ones that can produce the best results and provide a great client experience. Luckily enough, Tri-County Pest Control fits both of these categories, so you know that you’re in good hands when you choose to work with us.
