Now that the cool weather has settled in, the peak of bug season is over and you can finally stop worrying about pests invading your home. Or so you think.
Although there may not be as many mosquitoes, wasps, and flies outside, the winter months can still attract nasty pests inside. Household pests can destroy your property and spread disease to you and your family. And as hard as you may try, those pests aren’t always easy to get rid of on your own.
Pest problems can happen in your home all year long. So, if you want to protect your Charleston home from pests, keep reading.
Home Pest Control Is Difficult On Your Own
When you discover a trail of ants on your kitchen counter, you might reach for an over-the-counter insecticide to eliminate the problem. You may even buy a few ant bait traps to set up around the house. The ants go away for a few days, but sure enough, they return in force to swarm the first sugary spill you forgot to clean up.
Trying to control pests on your own can be frustrating; in fact, it can feel like a waste of time. You can treat your home for insects, but the results are often superficial. You can only get rid of the pests you can see. Stomping, spraying, and trapping might seem like it’s working, but where there’s one pest, there are probably dozens or even thousands more nearby. And without eliminating the nests, colonies, or breeding grounds of problem pests, an infestation will not only continue, it will get worse.
Not to mention, household pests are frequently misidentified, and homeowners mistakenly use pest control methods to eliminate one kind of pest when they’re really trying to get rid of another. For example, bed bugs can be mistaken for other small insects, venomous brown recluse spiders are regularly confused with other household species and particular ant species can easily be mistaken for another.
Dealing with pests in your home can feel like a never-ending battle. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
