It is impossible to count how many pests invade homes each year here in the United States. Considering that many insect species live in groups in the thousands, and rodents spread like wildfire, the number could be in the hundreds of billions. We will never know. What we do know is that pests lower the quality of life for homeowners.
If your home and property are under siege by destructive, dangerous, and annoying pests, it is time for you to take action. At Termishield, we offer comprehensive and reliable year-round pest control plans designed to fit any home’s needs. Are you still on the fence on whether year-round pest control is right for you? Read on to learn more.
The Seasons & Their Pests
Here in Mishawaka, Indiana, different pests have their own seasons. Some are only an issue for a few months in fall, others never really stop being a problem. For instance, stink bugs are fall pests, they only come around when the weather cools and the sunny sides of our homes are the warmest surfaces around. Rodents, on the other hand, are year-round pests. Regardless of the temperature outside, rodents prefer to live with us rather than outside. This is because our homes provide amenities like food, water, and shelter that are more difficult to find in the wild. In summary, every pest has its season, but there is no season here in Mishawaka that doesn’t have any pests. Pest problems are year-round, and without the proper protection, your home will always be at risk of an invasion.
Common Pest Problems
Pests are either a nuisance, dangerous, destructive, or some combination of these three things; this is the nature of pest problems. On the nuisance side of the spectrum, we have bed bugs. These tiny, blood-sucking pests are the cause of many sleepless nights but are in no way a threat to you or your home. Termites, on the other hand, won’t disturb you at all. At first. All they want to do is silently eat away at the wood of your home. (In the long run, the damage they cause will be a source of major stress, but at first, you won’t even know they are around.)
Finally, you have pests like rodents. These furry foes hit all three problems. Not only are rodents annoying with the way they pitter-patter above and below you at all hours of the night, but they are dangerous and destructive as well. Rodents have extremely sharp teeth that can chew through practically anything. It is common to find holes in walls, gnawed furniture, severed electrical wiring, and leaky pipes within homes we treat for rodents. In addition to this, rodents are filthy creatures that tend to carry and transmit a number of dangerous diseases and parasitic pests.
Long story short: when pests enter your home, they bring problems with them. The only way to stay safe and sane is with quality year-round pest control courtesy of Termishield.
Why Prevention Is Better Than Reaction
Keeping pests out of your home is easy for us. All we have to do is establish an effective and long-lasting treatment barrier and pests will find it difficult if not impossible to get inside. Getting pests out of your home is a different story. This requires more detailed treatments and pest control methods. This takes more time and costs more. It is always cheaper to have year-round pest protection than to have pests treated every time they show up and cause trouble. In addition, with our year-round pest control, you get the added bonus of a pest-free guarantee; if pests show up between our scheduled visits, we will come back and retreat at no extra charge.
Here at Termishield, we are committed to providing only the best pest control services for our community. If you are looking for an expert team with years of pest control experience to guard your home against pests, we have your back. Give us a call today if you have questions or would like to start the process to get your home pest-free.
