I remember when I was renting places that I was never really in charge of ensuring that pests stayed clear of my property, after all it is the landlords responsibility to pay for any pest control services. As a new home owner, pest control is something that we will be in charge of and responsible for should unwanted pests arrive on our doorstep. In our home, I am the one scared of moths and he is the one scared of spiders. It works out great, we laugh at each other over these things. I feel like the big bad woman when a spider happens upon our home and I have zero issues finding a way to get rid of it. He laughs when a bright green flying grasshopper comes into our home and I am screaming like a little girl over this pest. He picks it up and carries it outside, not before tossing it in front of my face to tease me just a little bit!
While picking up or stomping certain outdoor pests that get within the home make sense, heck even letting such pests go outside makes sense, there is a time when pests are not welcome within the home and can take over. When you have a pest problem, that is when you will no longer be happy with having a household member grab the pest and let it out or stomp it to it’s death, you will need to look into hiring a professional exterminator to ensure they get the job done.
An exterminator can assist in keeping pests gone for good. There are sprays and other services that these professionals can offer in the form of long term pest control to keep those creepy crawlers outside of your home and back into their home permanently. Some pests that come to mind when thinking of a reason to use a pest control professional are fleas, wasps, and ants. I know this is the season for ants and I cannot imagine having to keep those little buggers away, even now, we see them frequent our kitchen from time to time. Once pests become frequent unwanted visitors, that is the time to hire an exterminator for your pest control relief.
