Pest Bomb urges consumers to be aware of preventive pest control measures. Many consumers see preventive pest control as unnecessary. Other consumers take it one step further and categorize preventive pest control measures as not only unnecessary, but unethical. They see the services as something that professionals push on consumers to generate business in times when there are no pest problems.
To clarify the issue Pest Bomb points out that many pests are best dealt with prior to any obvious signs of a problem.
Pests best dealt with using preventive pest control measures include:
1. Termites (once termites are seen by the property owner the damage has most likely already occurred).
2. Small rodents (if you see one…there are most likely multiple rodents in your area).
3. Birds (while birds are often not classified as pests...they become pests once they take up residence in your attic, walls, etc.)
4. Any and all flying insects (in the case of bees and wasps the nest must be found)
While there are definitely pest control businesses out there that will schedule unnecessary services in order to generate money for their company, hiring a reputable service will avoid this problem. Consumers need to be aware of the difference between unnecessary pest control services and preventive pest control services. Discussing the suggested schedule of services with multiple professionals and comparing their opinions on a particular property's needs will give consumers a solid idea of the appropriate timing.
