Have You been torn between hiring a pest control company and trying to deal with your pest infestation on your own? If you’ve been struggling with a real infestation in your yard or in your home, then it is probably time to pass the job on to a professional. In this article, we are going to discuss why homeowners more often than not, encounter troubles when attempting to manage pest control on their own.

Underestimating The Infestation

Determining the seriousness of an infestation can be tricky. As a DIY homeowner, you will need to ask yourself: How serious is the termite infestation in my walls? How many rat nests are hiding in my crawlspace? Which piece of furniture is infested with bed bugs? When homeowners try some DIY pest solutions, they tend to focus on the visible problems, basically treating the symptom rather than the core of the issue. The real infestations don’t tend to advertise their presence, and the worst problems tend to be hidden underground or inside your walls. This is why calling in an experienced professional like our team at Consolidated Pest Control is the right step in getting rid of your infestation for good.

Are You Choosing The Right Pesticides For The Job?

For casual pest maintenance, many homeowners do well with going to the store and buying an over the counter pesticide. However, buying the right pest control product for a specific pest problem is a whole other story. If a homeowner is experiencing an invasive pest that is plaguing their property, then the job is best handled by a professional who not only has the right tools, but the knowledge and experience to deal with the situation. Professionals are trained in their area of expertise, not just in the effective use of chemicals, but in the varying techniques to be used according to pest threat and even insect species. Having the knowledge of which chemicals to use and how they should be applied involves a lot more than just a quick Google search. It takes proper training in both technique and safety measures.

Shortcuts Typically Don’t Work

There has always been a thriving market for DIY pest control products, and the goal for these products and techniques is often to make money rather than provide real solutions. You may hear product claims that promise to solve all your pest problems, however, you can’t believe everything you read on the internet. If an expert is not involved, then there is no guarantee that you are getting what you’re told you’re getting. The average homeowner won’t have the training or expertise to catch and know the difference between marketing hype and when they are buying something that actually works. Investing in a professional pest control company is the best route to ensure you are getting exactly what you pay for.
