Should I Buy Pest and Termite Control? How to Protect Your New DeLand Home

According to, the average price for a home in DeLand, FL for 2022 has been approximately $397,000. While that’s more affordable than some other areas of Florida, it’s a lot of money to pay for a house. Anytime you’re making an investment that large, it’s essential to invest in products and services that will protect your home and its value. 

It’s not uncommon for homeowners to inquire whether commercial pest control is worth their investment. This is especially true for people who have purchased one of the many new construction homes popping up in our community. Surely a brand new, block-construction house wouldn’t be susceptible to pest infestations. Well, unfortunately, that’s where homeowners get it wrong time and again.

Pests can’t tell the difference between new and old construction. They’re just looking for the same things we all are: food and shelter. In fact, new construction homes in this area are often built on formerly-wooded properties. When the land is cleared, it leaves many pests homeless and may drive them straight into the new structures looking for a new place to call home. It’s safe to say that no DeLand homes, regardless of age, are invulnerable to pest infestations.

Just like you don’t wait until something is terribly wrong to visit your doctor, we don’t recommend you wait until your DeLand house is overcome with pests to call a commercial pest control service. Prevention is the key to maintaining a pest-free household. Our clients who invest in commercial pest control rarely have to make panicked phone calls after finding cockroaches in their kitchen because they know their home has already been treated.

Holder Pest Control partners with homeowners just like you to ensure that out-of-control pest infestations don’t undermine your hard work. 

Do I Really Need Termite Control?

To truly understand the risk termites pose to your home, you must know the environment they like to live in. Termites, like many other types of pests, love warm, dark, damp places. Here in DeLand, we have the perfect weather to attract swarms of termites each year looking for a place to set up a colony. You may think that your block construction home is impenetrable by termites but remember that (unless you live in a bunker) no home is made entirely of concrete. There is wood framing, drywall, furniture, cabinetry, and more that contain the cellulose that termites are hungry for.

Termites cause millions of dollars in damage each year in the United States, and often the most damage occurs in structures where the owners didn’t identify the damage until it was too late. These hungry critters will eat and eat until they’ve laid waste to an entire building. But with professional termite control, you can catch them in the act or even prevent them from ever infesting your home in the first place.

Holder Pest Control has developed a reputation as one of the best commercial pest control companies in DeLand for a reason. We’ve been on the side of local homeowners for more than forty years, and we’ll continue protecting homes for decades to come.
