Gone are the days when you called an exterminator company, and they sent out a “hose jockey.” We’ve learned a lot since then. Today’s pest management problems require more complex, thoughtful solutions. Such solutions must take a number of factors into account. We now have scientific advances, new laws to protect the environment and public health, and just plain better information about what works and what doesn’t.
Developing an effective pest management strategy requires deep knowledge, coupled with a healthy application of common sense. The ability to “read” a house or property, diagnose any problems, and then prescribe an appropriate remedy isn’t as easy as boning up on pest extermination online and then going to the store for some household chemicals. There are other factors, like, exclusion, or sealing off the house so pests can’t get in. Proper sanitation is also crucial.
Most of us don’t know precisely what environmental factors may be conducive to various pests. We don’t understand, intimately, the lifestyles and habits of the particular pests that thrive where we live. We don’t grasp, intuitively, how to protect our homes from their invasive natures. But a highly trained pest management professional knows this stuff.
Indeed, a professional technician, trained in an integrated pest management (IPM) approach, will tackle your pest problem – first, by working with you to solve it using every non-toxic means available. And then, if the job calls for the use of pest control materials, those substances will be targeted precisely, using the least amounts needed to be effective. This is why it’s so much easier to hire someone who comes with extensive training in the safe use of these products, who will remove them from your premises when he’s done with the job – so you won’t need to keep a cabinet full of toxins around your house.
So calling on the services of a dedicated pest management professional can save us a lot of time and money in the long run, not to mention the peace of mind we gain from knowing the job will get done right the first time. And at Clark Pest Control, we’re so confident that we can meet every one of your pest management needs that we guarantee everything we do for you.
