The benefits of pest management

Feb 5, 2021, 12:20 PM by Fred Speer

Pest management is a service you may not think much about until you need it, like when you come face to face with a mouse, or you observe unusual flying insects around your windows on a warm spring day.

Professional pest management services, however, are not just for those aha moments when you suddenly realize you’re sharing your living space with an unwanted crawling or flying visitor. Regular pest management services offer benefits that keep you, your family, the food you eat, and your home safe from troublesome, disease-carrying pests.

Clark, your friendly pest, rodent, termite and grounds care expert, is expert at delivering exceptional pest management services designed to keep pests – from ants to rodents, with virtually any pest in between – outside of your living sphere. 

No one wants to see venomous or destructive pests crawling or swarming in and around their home. Sure, you might be able to take out two or three of them with a fly swatter or your shoe, but you’re no match for an entire colony. Also, a good rule of thumb to follow is that when you see one or two pests, it’s highly likely there are a lot more of their friends hiding elsewhere.

A pest management program reduces your exposure to pest-borne disease pathogens

Certain pests – cockroaches, flies, and rodents – can spread harmful bacteria, including salmonella or E. coli. The saliva, feces and shedding body parts of cockroaches can trigger both asthma and allergies, especially in children. This makes preventing and eliminating pests critical to good health.

No pests make for a healthier home   

Bites or stings from certain pests – bed bugs, fleas, or yellowjackets come to mind – can result in itching or cause severe allergic reactions. You’ll probably sleep better as well. Medical professionals continually endorse getting more sleep. If you don’t have to worry about bed bugs or other creepy, crawly pests sharing your living space, you’ll not only gain peace of mind, but you’ll likely sleep more soundly.

Pest management provides a long-term solution

Hiring a pest management professional is not a one-and -done situation. Regularly scheduled service visits will build a pest shield around your home that lets pests know they are not welcome. Highly trained, licensed professionals, like those from Clark Pest Control, use the latest technology and industry practices to deliver long-term solutions to your pest problem.

Pest management saves you money

“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” is an old saying that applies to pest management quite nicely. An annual termite inspection can spot a potential infestation and prevent it from causing costly damage to your home. Regular pest management services proactively cut pests off at the pass and prevent a small issue from blowing up into a big one. That saves not only time and inconvenience, but money in the long run.

Before you head to the store to buy a mouse trap or can of roach spray, consider calling a pest management professional. It’s a good short- and long-term investment in your, your family’s, and your home’s well-being.

Clark Pest Control remains committed to safeguarding your home from pests during these challenging times. Our service technicians use such personal protective equipment as gloves, masks, and respirators, they practice social distancing, they call ahead to notify you before a service, and they adhere strictly to all Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines when servicing inside or outside your home.
