If you’ve been paying any attention to the extermination community over the last several years, you are no doubt likely of the highly debated situation regarding the effectiveness of insecticides and pesticides. On the one hand, you have the people that believe these treatment options are no longer a suitable solution for the pest community. Not only because they are dangerous, but because they are now more ineffective than ever.
On the other hand, you have the diehards that believe in the chemicals through and through. These are the older school people that started practicing pest control in the late 70s and early 80s. That said, we are all about presenting the facts. If such an important decision is to be made as to how to treat pests, all the facts must be laid out.
One thing is for sure, and no one can dispute it. Traditional pesticides and chemicals are growing less and less effective. Despite their potential for disaster, a case against using them altogether for pest solutions could be made. That said, they have also proven effective when applied in controlled areas under multiple proper applications.
This is the number one reason that our company still offers the traditional use of these chemicals. When it comes right down to it, the success of pest treatments honestly depends on the severity of the infestation. The point at which the infestation is detected and brought to light. Therefore, it is always best to stay on top of pest detection methods and regularly monitor your property.
Pest infestations are more easily treated with insecticides and pesticides when they are caught in the earliest stages of development. Recent studies conducted at the vaunted University of Purdue have proven that successful eradication of bed bugs with the utilization of chemicals requires at least two visits. In addition to this, these applications are much more effective when there is a lapse in time between each application.
When our pest company offers a conventional treatment solution, we go ahead and schedule a follow-up visit within a few months. This charge is included with the initial charge and will verify that we have successfully solved your pest problem. Here’s what a basic layout of our program might look like:
A call is placed to our offices to request a quote or consultation
We send someone out to the home to survey they are and possible treatment application methods
These applications are presented to you along with their upsides and downsides
You’ll choose an option and we’ll set up a date to start treatment
Our techs will come out and apply the applicable treatment
3 to 6 months later we’ll return to apply another treatment
