The importance of Pest Control service in Phoenix, Mesa, Glendale, Scottsdale, or any metropolitan area surrounding Phoenix Metro is often overlooked.
Pest Control services are one of the most important services you can employ on a scheduled basis. Regular maintenance is necessity to your home or property.. Most great services should include a service professional that is highly trained and understands the nature of pests and the potential damage that specific pests can cause as well as the germs, viruses and diseases known to be vectored by pests such as mosquitoes, flies, cockroaches, and rodents.
Most residential pest control customers see pests as simply a nuisance and upon discovery want an immediate fix. Unfortunately, there really is no immediate fix, and when an infestation has gotten to a point where a cure is needed, the issue has generally been building up long before they were noticed or at a level where the customer just wants them gone. Generally, the pests you can visibly see and want to get rid of are not the real problem, the real issue is the pests you don’t see, the ones making the nest, having the babies, contaminating food stuffs in the back of the cupboards, or even chewing holes in your expensive clothing, that’s right, they have a way of destroying the most valuable pieces in your closet, they are very fond of clothing and items that tend to be high end material, ie.. silks, wool’s and other natural fibers. Most customers tend to find these issues when it’s too late. Nothing worse that getting ready for that exciting night out, looking forward to wearing that special garment that you look so good in, and upon slipping the beautiful new sweater, skirt or sports coat, you notice all the little holes in the fabric, what the heck is that??? Clothes moth damage? Hmmm
The point is that unwanted guests such as bugs like scorpions, cockroaches, other flying insects, rats, mice, pigeons and termites cause pain, damage and carry diseases that you should be aware of and have protections in place to preventatively and proactively keep pests away from and out of your home or property.
The best pest control service will include a regular service plan to have a professional on site on a consistent basis. The plan will include an intensive treatment on the exterior with a goal to make sure pests do not enter the structure. Most of our invading pests in Arizona come from outside, just preventing this will avoid the majority of issues that could arise on the inside. Though we don’t recommend interior service every time, a good company should offer a strong warranty to return if invading pests do enter the home, and it is also recommended at the minimum, have the house inspected on an annual basis, inside and out, including the attic if possible. It is best to have the annual inspections performed in the winter months in Phoenix, as the excessive heat will prevent access to attics in the summer.
To insure your home is invader proof, you need to hire a professional pest control company that has great credentials such as membership in National Pest Management Association (NPMA) and Arizona Pest Professional Organization (AZPPO) to start with. Ask if they have an entomologist on staff, and if they follow the Quality Pro standards that are set on a National level, including certified service programs like GreenPro, QualityPro, QualityPro Schools and QualityPro Public Health. Also read their five star reviews and see how happy their customers are. Look for a local family company who has been in business for over 25 years, you know if they have great reviews and been in business that long, they are doing something right, and generally it starts with customer service and special attention that you get from a quality local company vs. a large branded out of state company that will be very difficult to get a hold of management when you do have an issue.
