In the past, pest control services were more reactive in nature meaning that if a pest infestation was found, the pest control technicians would come and eradicate the issue. But today, many have discovered that by maintaining a year round pest control contract with regular inspections and proactive treatments, they do not have to deal with pests at all! Plunkett’s Pest Control offers home pest solutions through our large Midwest service area so that homeowners have peace of mind knowing their home and family are protected from pest infestations before they hit. Why year round? Well, the fact is that there is never a time of year when the threat of pests does not exist. There is always some type of bug or rodent just waiting to get inside and wreak havoc on your home which is why it is always best to prevent such problems before they occur. Not only can pests be a major nuisance to deal with but some are dangerous to your health, to your family’s health and to the structures of your home. To further highlight the importance of year round pest control services, here is a breakdown of just a few of the pests likely to infest homes at different times of the year: Winter - mice, rats, bed bugs, spiders Spring - termites, carpenter ants, flies Summer - fleas, ticks, stinging insects, mosquitoes Fall - Asian lady beetles, box elder bugs With a pest control contract in place, you can trust that your home will be protected from the pests listed above as well as many other common household pests that could be lurking nearby.
