The Benefits of Maintaining Pest Control Through The Winter Months

Spring has sprung in Florida, and this is the time of year that some of our clients who have fallen off during the colder months come running back to reinstate their pest control services for the months to come. As a homeowner yourself, you’ve probably noticed that wintertime (as short as it is in this part of the world) seems to be the time when pests are the least active. Most pests aren’t able to withstand cold temperatures so they either die leaving their eggs underground to hatch when the weather warms up, or go into a dormant state akin to hibernation. Either way, you can count on most pests to show back up at your door as soon as the temperature sneaks back up above 50 degrees

The old saying that “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” is highly applicable when it comes to pest control. Household pests are sneaky, small, and singularly motivated, so the best way to keep them out of your house for good is with ongoing pest control. Of course, if you are one of those homeowners who prefer to hire pest control services for one-off treatments, we’ll happily serve you when you call. But there are some benefits to you, your home, and your wallet to sticking to an ongoing service plan. 

We Can Catch Issues Early

Often, when you notice a pest problem it’s already been escalating around you without you even noticing it. Tiny pests like ants, termites, and cockroaches can squeeze into your home through small spaces like cracks between the siding on your home’s exterior. Once inside it may take weeks or months for you to discover the first signs of intruders. When you have a pest control professional visiting your home regularly you can count on two things happening. First, you can expect that they will be able to identify pest control issues early so they can be treated. And second, their regular pest control treatments will keep some pests from showing up at all. 

This type of early detection isn’t just about avoiding a glimpse of a gross pest, but it can also help you prevent damage that will cost you a lot of money to repair. The longer pest control issues go unnoticed, the more likely those pests are to wreak havoc on the structural integrity of your home. Making a long-term commitment to pest control treatments is also a long-term commitment to the well-being of your property.

Have Coverage In Place When Seasons Change

When you have coverage in place, you know that you won’t have to rush to get service once the seasons change. There are plenty of families who opt for the ad hoc style of pest control, and as soon as the temperatures start to warm and the creepy crawlies come out of hiding, all of those people are calling us ready to get back on our docket. The great thing about never stopping your service is that you have your name on our list all year long. Whether you’re dealing with a pest control company or an accountant, you can always trust that existing clients take precedent over newcomers. Save yourself a wait in line and invest in ongoing service for the health of your family and home.

Build a Trusting Relationship

You deserve to have a positive and trusting relationship with the service providers that are coming into your home. Over the last four decades, we have provided high-quality pest control services to homeowners in our community. Year after year we commit to provide excellent service that you can trust. The reason you know you can trust us is because of our proven track record. Imagine down the line that you spot a significant pest issue and don’t have a relationship with anyone you can call. Where do you start? Do you just invite anyone into your home? We’ve built our reputation on trust. Stick with us and we’ll keep your pest issues under control.

For everything, there is a season, and even though the cooler months may decrease your pest control issues temporarily there is always a season right around the corner when they’ll be back in full force. Many homeowners are tempted to dip in and out of pest control services when it suits them most. While we support your right to do so, we also know that people who stay committed to their pest control regimen are more likely to have positive results.
