What is pest control, why should you use professionals and how do you know you’ve picked the right one? These are questions we’ll answer.
You’ve no doubt heard how important it is to ensure you have your home or office professionally serviced by a pest control expert – particularly if you live in Queensland, where creepy crawlies are frequent visitors.
But what is pest control, what types of pests does it target, what are the benefits of pest control completed by a professional and how do you know you’ve chosen a legitimate company? If these are questions you’ve been asking yourself, you’ve come to the right place.
Professional Pest Control: A Definition
Pest control is the use of chemicals and methods to accurately diagnose, identify and control pests in your home or office. For years, professionals like us at Sun Dry have used proven products and techniques to reduce the amount of pests you have on your property while also protecting you and your family from the damage these pests can do.
Are Pest Control and Pest Eradication the Same?
No, pest control and pest eradication are not the same thing. Pest eradication means you are wiping out an entire species – which in the case of insects like ants, spiders and even bees, isn’t something you necessarily want to as it would damage the ecosystem immensely.
Pest control is more about providing a barrier between your property and that of the insect’s natural habitat. If you have insects invading your home or office, we need to come in and use products and solutions that encourage them to move on and relocate elsewhere, ideally away from where you live and work.
What Types of Pests Do Pest Control and Management Services Target?
While it does differ slightly from company to company, some of the most common pests our services have been successful in controlling are:
- Mice and other vermin
- Spiders (including redbacks)
- Bed bugs
- Carpet beetles
Why Should You Use a Professional Pest Control Service (Like Sun Dry)?
These days, there are any number of DIY pest control solutions readily available from various hardware stores. But in our experience, you’re better off dealing directly with the experts if you want your pest control done right.
Here are some of the benefits our customers have found in using our services.
Half the battle when it comes to pest control lies in diagnosis. If you don’t know what type of insect or pest you are dealing with you won’t know how to treat it, and the off-the-shelf chemical you choose may end up doing more harm than good.
The Sun Dry team of pest control experts are knowledgeable about all types of pest and how best they’re able to be redirected away from your property with little to no damage to the ecosystem. This expertise is something you’ll have access to when you use our services and can trust the situation will be managed efficiently and professionally.
Once diagnosis of your pest issue is complete, our pest control treatments are successful in the home and office. You simply don’t have this guarantee when choosing a random solution from your local hardware store.
Because pest control solutions (including those from your local store) use chemicals that can be harmful if you don’t know what you’re doing, many of our clients find that there is less risk in employing our services than if they were to attempt the job themselves.
You Know What’s In Our Products
DIY solutions don’t always offer a full list of ingredients. As a successful pest control company, we believe in being as transparent as possible and understand that you want to know what’s being used in your home (or office) before we start treatment.
We’ll discuss with you every step of the process and explain how the ingredients in our products work together to combat pest infestations.
Safe for Humans & Pets
Unfortunately, there’s no way of knowing that the DIY products you have access to are safe to be used around humans and pets. Some chemicals are dangerous for children and also pose a risk to pets, even after the solutions have been applied to the affected area.
While we recommend not having children and pets on your premises while your pest control service is completed, this is just precautionary and your property will still be safe for children and pets once we’re done.
Save Time & Money
You can waste a lot of time and money trying different DIY methods, when you could have just come to the professionals and got the job done effectively.
