The Benefits of Monthly Pest Control

The Benefits of Monthly Pest Control

In our increasingly fast paced world of instant gratification, it can be easy to assume that a pest infestation can be solved permanently with one treatment. The truth is that most pest infestations require multiple treatments to get the job done. Even then, once the current infestation is dealt with, there are many variables that can play into whether the pest will return.

If your home has had a serious pest infestation that required professional intervention, a monthly pest control service is a smart decision both financially and in controlling the pests. These monthly services are designed to make sure that the pests do not return.

Often a pest infestation is the by-product of the environment surrounding your home or business. Even if an infestation is taken care of now, there is little that can be done to stop the natural surroundings of a home or business from creating the right circumstances for pests to return. For example, most pests are attracted to areas where there is an abundance of food or shelter. In urban areas this can mean living near shopping centers and their dumpsters, in more rural areas it can mean living close to animals and their food sources. Whatever the case, monthly pest control services are the best way to prevent future infestations of your home or business.

If you are unsure of how a monthly pest service can be beneficial for your home or business here are the reasons why to choose monthly pest control services.

Benefits of Monthly Pest Control:

If you are experiencing a serious pest infestation, you will want to get it under control as soon as possible. If you wait too long, you may even run the risk of having to replacing large sections of your home.

Rats often leave droppings and urine that can stain and ruin floors and walls. They can chew through wires and cause short circuits, ruining expensive electrical equipment. Rodents often find the warmth of a cooling engine a nice place to stop and chew on plastic, rubber, and wiring within a vehicle.

As we know some of the smallest parts of newer vehicles can come with a hefty price tag, not to mention the price of installation by a professional. Damage to fabrics, wood, drywall, and insulation found in your home are also a favorite delicacy of many rodents caused by constant chewing and gnawing.

Speaking of structural damage to your home, rodents are not the only culprits to be found on the list of pests that cost property owners all over the United States millions of dollars per year. Termite damage can cause structural defects to your home if left unchecked and unmonitored. Depending on the severity of the infestation correcting such damage can cost on average between $800 and $3000.

A monthly pest control service is the only guaranteed way to make sure that issues you have experienced in the past do not return.

Prevent potential health risks caused by pests

Aside from the monetary damage pests can cause, they can also present a serious risk to your health. Some pests can actually transmit diseases. Some rodents, such as rats and squirrels, can transmit diseases through their bites.

Bats can also carry diseases that can be transmitted to humans through their droppings. It is also important to note that even if a pest does not bite you, you could still become sick from being near them. Fleas and roaches, for example, can also cause illness through their droppings. If you or someone you love is asthmatic the droppings and or saliva from a pest can trigger an attack. Even those who do not have asthma can experience nasal and esophageal irritation and difficulty breathing from close contact with pests.

Egg-laying pests, such as ticks and mosquitos, are also a huge concern for health. They can carry serious diseases, including West Nile Virus, Lyme Disease, and Zika.

The following is a list of some of the most common types of pests found in the U.S. and their corresponding risks:

Flies and Cockroaches

Salmonellosis, Dysentery, Cholera

Fleas and Ticks

Lyme disease, Ehrlichiosis


Rat bite fever, Plague, Hantavirus, Leptospirosis, Monkeypox, Salmonellosis

Keep Treatment Costs Low

On average a pest infestation that has gotten out of control will be costly. Now imagine having to pay that same cost 2 to three times a year, when instead you can have a monthly recurring service that ends up saving you nearly 30% the entire cost of several serious infestation visits. You may even be able to get a discount on your monthly pest control service if you sign up for it on a long-term basis.

Keep Treatment Costs Low

If you have pests in your home, you will likely need to call a professional exterminator to come out and treat your home. By signing up for a monthly pest control service, you have a cheaper alternative.

It is important to remember that while pest control services can help you control pests for a certain amount of time, there is no permanent solution to any pest problem in an area. No number of exterminators or pest control companies in any one area has the power to eradicate all the rats, all the ants, and all the roaches. Pest out number humans by a huge margin. For example, there are 1.4 billion insects for every 1 human on earth. The rat ratio is 1:1, and thats just rats, not to mention mice, ground squirrels and other rodent like pests.

If you are experiencing a pest infestation on your property it is likely not a new phenomenon (just ask any neighboring property owner who has been in the area for some time) and will more than likely continue being an issue. In many cases of insect and rodent infestations a recurring pest service is the only true solution from keeping your property clean and pest-free.

Protect the reputation of your home or business

Your reputations as a home or business owner are hard to build and easy to lose. Whether it is the sight of rodents roaming your property or insects such as flies or cockroaches seen in your place of business, these things can impact how your community and clientele view you.

If you are in the business of food or hospitality, pests can have a serious negative impact on your reputation. If you have pests in your kitchen, they can contaminate your food, which can lead to serious health issues. You can also be held legally liable for any injuries customers sustain from eating contaminated food. In fact, the Center for Disease Control has reported that insects cause many foodborne illnesses.

According to Trustpilot, 9 out of 10 consumers check a review site before making a purchase or visiting a business. Online reviews impact purchasing decisions for over 93% of consumers. A few online reviews mentioning pests such as rodents or insects for your business can be devastating.

An estimated 5-10% of foodborne illnesses can be attributed to insects. This demonstrates the importance of consistent monitoring of your business’s pest situation.

Nothing is more important than your reputation as a home and business owner. With a monthly pest control service, you can reduce the risk of pests and keep the pests you do have under control.

Peace of Mind

A serious pest infestation can lead to sleepless nights. Seeing a rat in the kitchen, finding a roach in the laundry room, discovering termites in the attic, or finding bed bug droppings on your sheets is enough to give most people some form of anxiety.

Often there is a bit of panic and fear as the realization sets in that you and your family are not the only ones occupying your home. In cases like this a pest control professional cannot arrive soon enough to solve the problem.

There is always the initial feeling of ease and comfort when a pest professional does excellent work and there are no more sightings of the bothersome pest you were suffering.

As time goes on you may worry that the pests could return once the initial treatment has passed and that you may not know when.

This is no way to live, in constant worry that at any moment you may hear that familiar scratching in the walls, find that large eight-legged creature running across the kitchen floor, or see a large group of cockroaches scurrying around as you turn the light on in a room.

All these concerns can be avoided by choosing a monthly pest control service. A good pest control company can provide regular treatment for pests once they have been identified. This means that you can rest easy knowing that the pests will not be able to return. No more wondering what that sound was, or surprises when turning on the bathroom light for that late night restroom visit.

If you are looking for a recurring monthly pest control service, Bug Baron Exterminator is the finest in the area.
