They are called pests for a reason. No one wants to wake up in the morning to find that ants have taken over their kitchen. While many different exterminators will be able to take care of this problem for you, there are only a few who will be able to get it done the right way. Before you dial the first number you find, stop and take a moment to find the difference between a good insect exterminator, and a great one.

That’s Harsh

Chemicals and poisons are an effective way to rid your home of unwanted insects. The trouble with this method is that it has many unwanted side effects. There have been cases of homeowners experiencing symptoms like headaches, dizziness, and nausea. The best exterminators will not only tackle your bug problem but take the health of you and your family into consideration as well. Consider a company that keeps harsh chemicals out of the home and only uses baits, gels, and spot treatments inside.

Prevention is Key

Imagine if pests never got inside your home at all. This may seem like a dream, but making it a reality is not all that difficult. Spraying insect repellents outside your home will make it so pesky insects will stay in the great outdoors where they belong. A top of the line insect exterminator will be able to treat for common insects like ants, spiders, roaches, and wasps as well as more troublesome species like termites. When it comes to these wood munching intruders, you need a company with a plan. Experience, as well as top of the line extermination methods, are everything you need to keep your home safe from insects.

Welcome Back

Nature does not stop working because your yard has been treated once. Keeping bugs away is a full-time commitment, especially in warmer climates. Treatments do not last forever, and as soon as they wear off, your home will once again be a target for all the insects in your area. To make sure the job is done properly, make sure the company you choose makes regular visits. This will treat any problems you currently have and prevent any insect problems in the future. Do your research before contacting an exterminator. It can save a lot of time and hassle.

Choosing the right insect exterminator for your situation is not difficult. You simply need to see how experienced the team is, and what practices they use. Harsh chemicals should only be used inside when absolutely necessary, and even then its use should be limited. You can also keep bugs from getting into your home at all with proper prevention treatments. The best companies will return a few times every year to make sure pests are the last thing on your mind.
