Four Reasons to Practice Pest Prevention

In the Midwest, spring marks a steady increase in temperature that eventually crescendos in the hot days of summer. When the tepid breeze of early spring blows in, many people become more active and venture outside of their home to go places they wouldn’t have visited in winter. The same is true of many household pests. That’s why now is a great time to implement pest prevention — and there are at least four reasons why.

  1. Prevent Property Damage

Some pests invade your residence and don’t cause permanent damage, such as spiders, silverfish, and roaches. But there are also some pests that will cause damage, such as termites, squirrels, and carpenter ants. In the end, the money you spend on pest prevention could be a small amount compared to what it would cost to repair permanent damage to your home.

  1. Save on Pest Control

In addition to helping you save on home repair costs, practicing pest prevention can help you save on pest control services. In most cases, taking preventative measures costs far less than eradicating a pest infestation after it’s in full swing. Unfortunately, many homeowners only use professional pest control services after an infestation is too big to ignore, which results in writing a bigger check to the exterminator than would be needed for simple prevention.

  1. Start a Pest Prevention Plan

Performing a round of pest prevention will help your home remain free of pests in the spring and summer, but you presumably want your residence to be pest-free year round and not just when warm weather makes flowers bloom. Enter a pest prevention plan. By treating your home at scheduled intervals, exterminators can help you keep it free of pests year round.

  1. Get Ready for Social Events

For many people, spring and summer are times of the year for holding social gatherings in the home. However, no matter how long the invite list is, it never includes household pests such as ants, mice, and spiders. Practicing pest prevention will help to ensure that warm weather pests don’t crash your house party and chow down on all of the food you prepared.

Need a Good Pest Prevention Plan?

If so, now is the time to implement one. With summer just around the corner, we are entering a time of year when many pests exhibit their most frenetic level of activity. Treating your home now to prevent these pests from entering and following up with scheduled pest maintenance treatment is the best way to keep your home pest-free throughout spring and summer.
