Do it Yourself vs Calling in the Pros

DIY Pest Control

There is a point of pride in accomplishing a job well done. Building something with your own hands can be fun and rewarding. Although, there is a time and place for calling in the professionals. When it comes to pest control services and extermination, there are people on both sides of the fence.

When Expense is a Major Factor

It may initially seem much less expensive to take a quick trip to the local hardware store, buy some consumer grade pesticides and traps and lay them out. This no longer becomes the less expensive approach when you realize that the pesticides you purchased as not very effective and the mild problem you had comes back as an all out invasion. Going back and buying more and more products can end up costing a significantly higher cost, especially when you consider the damage it can cause to your home, pets and family.

Convenience is Key

With the unorthodox schedules of many Las Vegas residents, convenience is often key to the decision to go it yourself. Consider how simple it is to go to the store, purchase pest control products, then apply them in your spare time. Compare that with the inconvenience of the customer that has to be home and available for an exterminator to come by. A good professional exterminator will work around your schedule to ensure that your service is scheduled at the greatest convenience for you.

Knowledge is Power

While there are clear instructions on the label of any store bought pesticide, and any questions you have can be researched online, the average person may still be left with unanswered questions. An experienced pest control professional will be well equipped with a vast array of knowledge and available to answer your questions directly.

The Element of Risk

Even when followed to the letter, spraying a pesticide inside or outside of your home can pose a risk. With larger infestations pests can grow immune to the chemicals you use and actually grow in numbers. A reliable pest control company will have strong pesticides that are effective at reducing pest numbers and will know how to treat infestations without posing a risk to your family or your home.

The last item that is of essential importance when considering taking on an infestation by yourself is the guarantee. It is very common that an exterminator will guarantee that between regular visits your home will remain bug free, or they will return and service your home free of charge. With an infestation the guarantee is not typically as finite, but follows the same guidelines. When laying traps they will come back and check them for you, and with insects they will retreat until the problem has been completely resolved. Try getting that from a can of store bough pesticide.
