Importance of Preventative Pest Control

Sometimes it seems like pest control is very reactionary. You see a bug and then you call a pest control company to come out and get rid of it. At Emtec Pest Control, we think there’s a better way to do things. That’s why we have our Preventative Pest Control plan. Our most popular and affordable service option protects your home against a variety of different, common pests and makes sure they never make it inside in the first place. This plan includes an initial service visit to assess your home’s unique needs and then is followed up by services every other month around the exterior of your home, so it’s not disruptive to you and your family. Here are some of the pests prevented by our preventative services:

Spiders: if you live here in Oklahoma, you know how prevalent spiders are. It seems like there’s just no way to keep them out. The good news is that Emtec Pest Control’s preventative services work to keep out all kinds of spiders. Whether it’s pesky garden spiders that just don’t want to stay outside or dangerous Black Widows hiding in your attic, our Preventative Pest Control program can take care of them all. We also have a separate preventative control program specifically tailored for customers dealing with those hard-to-eliminate Brown Recluse spiders. So no matter what kind of spider is spooking you, our professional team can keep it out of your home.

Roaches: roaches are everyone’s least favorite pest and they’re one of the hardest to get rid of—they have been around since the dinosaurs for a reason! Usually traveling in packs, roaches invade homes and businesses looking for food and water to scrounge. They also carry a variety of diseases including salmonella and parasitic worms. The best way to make sure these creepy invaders don’t carry bacteria and parasites into your home is to make sure they’re never allowed inside in the first place. Our Preventative Pest Control plan will keep roaches out. And if one should ever slip through the cracks, you have the peace of mind of knowing that Emtec will come out and take care of it right away at no extra charge.

Rodents: from city to country, apartments to houses, mice, and rats can be found just about anywhere. These furry invaders might not seem like a pressing problem, but they can quickly turn into a pest control nightmare. They reproduce extremely rapidly and carry a wide variety of dangerous diseases. So what might now seem like two furry creatures living in your attic could in a few weeks be 40 to 50 furry creatures running around your home spreading Hantavirus, Trichinosis, Rat Bite Fever, Tularemia, Leptospirosis, and Toxoplasmosis. Nobody wants that. Luckily, our preventative services work wonders against rodents and can help keep your home safe from these unwelcome houseguests.

Ants: it sometimes seems like it’s not spring until you see an ant in your kitchen! While we’re all for sings of warmer weather, we’re sure we could all live with fewer ants in our lives. We know you work hard to keep your home clean and pest-free and the last thing you want is a trail of ants marching throughout your house. No matter what type of ant is targeting your home, the invisible fence created by our Preventative Pest Control program will keep out any and all ants that are trying to take over your home and make it their own.

While not covered by the preventative pest control plan, there’s one more pest you want to make sure to get out ahead of:

Termites: while our Preventative Pest Control program doesn’t protect against termites, we offer another preventative program that does: The Sentricon® System. The Sentricon® Termite Colony Elimination System is proven not only to completely eliminate existing termite colonies but to prevent any new colonies from moving in as well. This is the only system we trust to protect our own homes from termites and we highly recommend it to all our customers looking to defend their homes and businesses against termite damage as well.
