How pests can entre any home or workplace, tidy or untidy

Question: A tidy, well-kept, and presented home may be always pest free, right? Well, not necessarily. In actual fact, pests can be attracted to any home for various reasons, many of which have nothing to do with the cleanliness or tidiness of the household.

Some common pests and home invaders make it very obvious that they are in your home or workplace, while many other species may hide away without a trace. Without a doubt, there are many valid and good reasons why regular pest control is necessary for every household to consider and implement as part of the household budget. Moreover, many will argue that regular pest control should be a key aspect of any property maintenance schedule and service, to avoid unnecessary property or assets damages caused by unwanted pests.

Therefore, is ‘Do-it-Yourself’ or ‘DIY’ pest control always enough? 

You may be surprised to know that many supermarket or hardware store ‘do-it-yourself’ and ‘DIY’ pest treatments appear to get the job done, however, in reality they only attack the tip of the iceberg. Most supermarket and hardware products, and home remedies are only capable of taking care of what you may see on the surface, for example spraying a walking cockroach as it runs across the kitchen floor. More often than not, the source of your infestation and pest problems is hidden well away. Therefore, the importance of contracting a licensed and insured pest controller at the first sign of a home invasion is critical. Qualified pest control technicians are well trained and equipped with a vast range of treatment options to stop an infestation in your home at its source.

As we entry the warmer months and over summer, it is more important than ever to revisit your pest management plan. Some warning signs to look out for include, damp areas, droppings, ordure, disturbed food, or household items. Finally, if in doubt call an experienced and licensed technician. “Always do the ring and shop around, as with most things you will be surprised with the possible savings and differences in services out there” says Ali Ghafoor, owner, and director of AMG Pest Management. There are many good companies out there and it is always important to find the fit for you and your pest management needs. Pest management is important to ensure the safety of your children, loved ones, pets, household or business, therefore taking the time to look around can pay off and covers your due diligence.
