If you live in the Rogers, AR, area, you probably already know that bugs and rodents can be a problem. But should you try and handle your own pest control or look for a professional service?
The answer is: it depends.
For most people, professional pest control is the way to go. However, if you only have a few little stray critters running around, there’s nothing wrong with setting your own mouse traps or, with proper precautions, spraying your home. There are plenty of drawbacks to this, however, including the potential that you’ll miss where pests are coming in in the first place.
There are many benefits of professional pest control, especially given the diversity of pests throughout Rogers, AR. The first of these is safety. While there are plenty of over-the-counter bug sprays at the hardware store, these can pose significant health and safety risks to children, pets, as well as yourself. A professional pest control provider will use safe chemicals and know-how, when, and where to spray them to reduce the risk of contamination.
Another reason to use a professional pest control service is convenience. Although you may have to coordinate schedules on that first visit, you don’t necessarily have to be home for every single quarterly service; sometimes, it’s possible to have the exterior taken care of without entering the home.
Having a guaranteed pest-free home is another important point when you’re trying to decide between DIY pest control and paying a pro. Alder Pest Control offers free re-treatments until known problems are resolved. Further, by using a licensed and insured pest control company, you’ll have the peace of mind that their technicians are fully trained to get the job done with as few disruptions to your home as possible.
Finally, if you have a major infestation, DIY pest control products simply won’t cut it. Rats, mice, and even mosquitoes can come back again and again. Your pest control service will eliminate these issues at the source so that you can enjoy a blissfully pest-free home all year round.
Alder Pest Control offers a range of pest control services for homeowners throughout Rogers. We offer quarterly pest control, rodent, tick, spider, ant, mosquito, and fly control, as well as termite control services. Our process begins with the free inspection followed by an initial treatment and regularly scheduled follow-ups along with “as-needed” visits in between.
