There is nothing worse than finding out you have a pest infestation in your home or business. Oklahoma’s climate makes it a hotbed for various unwanted pests to flourish, including ants, spiders, wasps, termites, cockroaches, and much more. When looking into options to keep your home pest-free, you have likely seen other Oklahoma pest control companies offering preventative maintenance, but is it worth it?
What is Preventative Pest Control?
Taking the initiative to protect your home or business from pests proactively is smart. Whether you live in a multi-family housing unit or a residential single-family home, pests will always find a way on your property or inside your house if preventative measures aren’t taken to exclude them. This is also a common problem for many commercial properties in Oklahoma. As you might imagine, it’s better to prevent pests before they are a problem than to deal with a full-blown infestation.
The good news is that Emtec Pest Control’s highly-skilled, licensed, and experienced pest control technicians are ready to meet all of your pest control needs. In fact, our average technician has more than 15 years of experience with our company! Whether you are just starting to see an increase in unwanted pests around your home or have dealt with them unsuccessfully in the past, our preventative pest control services were made to combat common pests in Oklahoma.
Why Is Preventative Pest Control Important?
Whether you have just cleared your home of pests or just want to make sure they don’t start nesting indoors, there are countless benefits to investing in a preventative pest control plan from Emtec Pest Control. Homeowners and business owners will often notice the effects of preventive pest control treatments almost immediately; however, this is far from the only benefit that can be expected.
Many residential and commercial pests are capable of causing extensive damage in a short amount of time. For instance, a single mouse that makes its way into a home’s pantry can quickly contaminate the food sources that the residents rely on. Comparatively, a commercial kitchen full of cockroaches can cause health hazards for patrons and workers. Why risk illness when you could instead ensure that these pests don’t ever take root with preventative pest control?
Most pests are not “house-trained,” meaning they will continue to defecate and urinate wherever they are. This is particularly apparent in rodent nesting areas and around kitchen counters and appliances that cockroaches frequent. This might make you feel a little less comfortable, but it could also negatively impact your health if you are exposed to these droppings long-term. Wouldn’t you feel better knowing that your food preparation surfaces haven’t been contaminated?
Is Preventative Pest Control Expensive?
