Top 5 Pest Control Myths Debunked
As a pest control company with over 25 years of hands-on experience, we’ve heard a lot of false claims, old wives tales and useless DIY methods. The internet lends to add even more to the growing list of pest control myths we try to debunk every day. Richmond Pest Control has put together our top 5 list of the most common pest control myths we come across all too often and we’re here to debunk and put an end to the rumor mill. Check out below some of the most common myths we’ve heard over the years.
Debunking the Most Common Pest Control Myths
Myth #1: If I don’t see any pest issues, I don’t need to call an extermination company.
Debunked: Termites and carpenter ants can be silently feasting on the interior walls of your home or business, while bed bugs are nocturnal and rarely seen. These silent pests can be wreaking havoc on your property under the radar. It is important to have a regular pest control inspection service to avoid an unforeseen infestation.
Myth #2: My Homeowners Insurance will Cover Pest Damage
Debunked: Carefully read your homeowners insurance policy to see exactly what (if anything) they cover in regards to pest damage. Mice chewing and damaging electric wires or termites causing structural destruction is often not covered. Many homeowners insurance policies exclude all termite and pest damage, because they deem it as preventable. Call 609-266-4200 to schedule regular pest control inspections.
Myth #3: DIY Pest Control Works as well as Professional Services
Debunked: If you’re just dealing with a few occasional kitchen ants, one or two spiders, even a stray moth it may not be necessary to call a professional pest control service. However, a more serious infestation requires more than a DIY can of bug spray and setting down some mouse traps. Our professional pest control company has the experience, skill and equipment to find, extract and prevent bug and rodent infestations.
Myth #4: Professional Pest Control Chemicals are Dangerous
Debunked: The times of pest control companies using harsh chemicals to get rid of pests is long behind us. Today’s pest control methods are safe for families and pets, yet highly effective in removing and prevent bugs and other intruders. Richmond Pest Control uses only the highest quality, environmentally friendly and safest methods of pest extraction and prevention.
Myth #5: They’ll Eventually Go Away
Debunked: While there is a miniscule change this may happen, it is not very common. Pests and rodents are known to have a rapid gestation cycle, which means they reproduce at an alarming rate. If left untreated, the infestation will spiral out of control. It is highly recommended to treat a pest problem at the first sign.
