Why You Should Call The Pros About Pests In Your Augusta Home

Augusta's home and business owners have many responsibilities and obligations. It’s easy to deprioritize pest management or forget about it altogether. People tend to wait for issues to arise before they take action. They assume that if there aren’t any visible insects or creatures on their property, they are good to go. Unfortunately, this is a misconception. Some pests invade in a gradual manner or naturally stay out of sight. Those that procreate quickly are an even bigger threat. Based on how a critter normally infiltrates, preventative measures may be paramount. Another faulty common belief is that “do-it-yourself” hacks are more effective and cost-friendly than contacting a professional extermination company. But taking the solo route can create even larger problems. Find out why this is, and why Bug Busterzzz Pest Control is the best avenue.

What Are The Dangers of Pest Infestations?

Few bugs and animals are innocent. They either will destroy your property or make you sick. Some have the ability to do both. Case in point, wood-eating pests can annihilate a home or business. Most quietly chew away at foundations from the inside out, unbeknownst to owners. Oftentimes, their damage won’t be noticeable until it’s too late. Folks have had to relocate or close up shop because of termites, carpenter ants, bark beetles, and the like. Recovering is very expensive; especially since insurance companies usually don’t cover this type of damage. 
While whole classes of insects focus on wood, others gravitate to personal possessions. Examples include silverfish, moths, crickets, carpet beetles, and rodents. They’ll munch on upholstery and furniture, books, cords, fabric, and rugs. Wiring getting bitten can result in electrical malfunctions or fires. This is particularly alarming. 
As far as medical and physical concerns, a plethora of critters can injure you with bites, scratches, or stings. Multiple species carry poisonous venom and/or harmful bacteria, or transmit diseases. Microbes could be in their fur, feces, urine, and/or saliva. The chances of food and surface contamination is high when ants, cockroaches, rodents, and similar creatures are around. Potentially, the following could occur:

  • Rabies
  • Insomnia
  • Respiratory illnesses 
  • Body system infections
  • Triggered asthma
  • Birth defects
  • Pathogens
  • Viruses
  • Skin blisters, lesions, or inflammation
  • Allergic reactions

Why Do “Do-It-Yourself” Methods Fail?

It must be emphasized that “at-home” pest control approaches will never be as successful as professional intervention. “Natural” or self-made concoctions will have little to no effect on species that require a powerful chemical solution. Any promising outcomes will be temporary. That’s not to say that you should purchase a stringent product or curate your own chemical mixture. Doing these things is extremely hazardous. Additionally, here’s what you should know about retail items:

  • They are typically intended for short-term use. 
  • Shelf goods won’t address entry points or extend to infestation cores.
  • Responses to treatment vary across species and/or subspecies. A catch-all system won’t work. 
  • Concentrated pesticides can ruin vegetation or impact humans and pets. 
  • Instructions on commercial items are frequently too complex; improper use may occur. 
  • Products can be pricey and necessitate repeat purchases.
