Discovering insects or rodents in your home is enough to make the grey hairs start multiplying: not only are they unsanitary and potential vectors for disease, but their presence can be stressful and psychologically harmful as well. Creatures like mice and carpenter ants can cause damage to the actual structure of the building, not to mention just giving a homeowner the creeps. Both are known for making noises late at night, mice from scampering around between walls and carpenter ants for shifting masses of wood out of the way to clear their galleries.
There are many “over the counter” pest control substances that can be purchased at hardware stores and big box chains that claim to get rid of mice, bedbugs, cockroaches, and ants, not to mention a number of natural solutions, but many people find that these are not effective techniques for permanently solving an infestation. If you have a problem in your home, you may want to contact a professional exterminator to come to your place and fix the problem. Some people balk at hiring pros because of the cost, but the benefits far outweigh the cost when it comes to the pest exterminators Toronto has to offer. Below are the top 3 reasons you should rely on professionals when critters come calling at your door.
1. Bedbugs - Bedbugs are huge in Toronto right now, resurging after decades in which they were fairly rare. However, a new generation resistant to old pesticides has emerged stronger and more persistent than ever before. Bedbugs are extremely hard to get rid of because they lay eggs that will hatch for weeks after a product is used to get rid of them, but local exterminators like Power Pest Control thoroughly search every room for bedbug hotspots and return with a mandatory follow-up 2 weeks later to ensure the problem is put to rest. A pro will have all of the tools and insecticides necessary to get rid of bedbugs, and advise you on whether or not you can salvage your belongings or if it is safer to replace them.
2. Training - A professional exterminator is well-educated on just about any insect or vermin that you may discover in your home. For example, they know how to track ants and locate the colonies that need to be targeted, or how to place traps based on whether or not you have mice or rats. This will save you loads of time that you would waste with many unsuccessful DIY attempts to get rid of pests. According to Power Pest Control exterminators in Toronto, the most effective eradication strategy starts with an investigation.
3. Warranty - If you still have doubts about relying on a professional company to solve your infestation woes, remember that better companies provide warranties on their services. That means that if the problem doesn’t go away the first time, the exterminator will return, at no extra charge, until they are gone for good. For example, you can opt for 6-month or 12-month warranties with a service like Power Pest Control, and choose between single and multi-species warranties.
If you have a problem with an infestation in your home, you should contact a professional pest exterminator in Toronto. They will be able to come to your home, assess the extent of your infestation, and they won’t quit until they’ve wiped it out.
