Why Proper Pest Control Matters

There’s at least one thing almost all Southerners can agree upon when it comes to summer: The bugs aren’t fun! And while some people might think bugs just come with the territory, there are things you can do to keep them away. You can try bug spray, tiki torches, and essential oils—but the best way to get rid of bugs is professional pest control

While we can’t get rid of all the pests in Alabama, we can get rid of a lot of them! Not only will you have a much more comfortable time inside and outside your home: You’ll also avoid potential health hazards and costly home repairs. 

Pest Control Is Health Conscious

Did you know that Alabama pests can be more than just annoying? They can actually cause health problems. If you’ve been stung by a wasp or bitten by an ant, that’s a pain you probably won’t forget! Aside from painful bug bites, bugs and pests of all kinds can carry diseases and pathogens. Cockroaches can trigger allergies, and rats and mice can carry extremely harmful bacteria—even the bubonic plague! 

Even the best bug spray on the market can’t keep every harmful pest away. Make sure you and your family are as safe as possible year-round with pest control services you can trust!

Pest Control Can Save Money

Common summer pests can also cost you! Did you know that termites alone cause $2 billion in property damage in the U.S. every year? That’s more than the damage caused by fire and windstorms combined. If you see holes in your drywall, warped or buckling wood, peeling paint, or signs mimicking water damage around your home, you could have termites. Make sure you get a professional to handle the situation before it gets too out of control! 

Pests Are Just Plain Annoying

Pests can be dangerous and expensive—but they’re also just a nuisance! Nothing ruins an end-of-summer barbeque like a swarm of flies constantly landing on your food or mosquitos leaving you itchy and irritated. As the weather cools down and hanging out outside sounds more appealing, you don’t want the idea of bugs to stop you from enjoying it!
