WHEN SHOULD YOU HIRE A PROFESSIONAL PEST CONTROL COMPANY

WHEN SHOULD YOU HIRE A PROFESSIONAL PEST CONTROL COMPANY

 

Homeowners in the Las Vegas Valley often are tempted to handle pest control themselves when insects find their way indoors. The truth is most pest problems are better left to the professionals – whether in Southern Highlands, Spring Valley or the Lake Mead region.

 

The vice president of the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) stated “when a homeowner attempts to treat a pest problem on their own, they are often treating the tip of the iceberg and not the root of the problem”. The pests that are seen are usually indicative of a larger infestation and can pose health problems and damage to your property if not treated correctly.

 

If any of the following scenarios occur in your home – call a professional pest control company – GLOBAL PEST SERVICES has the knowledge and experience to handle all pest control situations.

 

  • Termites, carpenter ants, carpenter bees and powder post beetles have the ability to damage support beams in your home. Termites alone can chew through wood, flooring and even wallpaper – silently and undetected causing around $5 billion in property damage per year. Most of the repairs caused by infestations of these wood-boring insects are not covered by homeowners insurance.

 

  • Bed Bugs are considered the most difficult pest to treat. They are robust and evasive – can live in almost any temperature and go months without a blood meal. It can take a professional several treatments to eliminate the problem completely.

 

  • Wasps, yellow jackets, fire ants etc. – all treatments to eliminate stinging insects should be left to pest control professionals. If they feel their nests are threatened they will swarm causing a health risk to the person trying to handle the situation. Stinging insects send over a half a million people to the emergency room each year.

 

  • Any recurring infestation no matter what type of pest should be handled professionally. A pest expert can inspect the home and identify the problem and recommend the proper course of treatment to eliminate the cause of infestation. They can also recommend do-it-yourself steps to prevent further problems.
