How To Keep Your Naples Home Pest-Free All Year
How prevalent are pests in the U.S. and particularly here in Florida? According to the U.S. Census Bureau, pests remain a common problem throughout the country. A study released indicated that sightings of cockroaches or rats occurred in roughly 14 million housing units in the past 12-month period. The Capital-Journal reported that Florida ranked first among all U.S. states for infestations of ants, cockroaches, and termites.
Are you wondering how to control pests in your home? Effective solutions usually require performing an inspection of the overall property conditions, identifying the nature and extent of the pest intrusion, implementing exclusionary methods, and conducting good home maintenance. A qualified Naples pest control professional understands the frustrations associated with invading pests. Experienced residential pest control companies have a variety of products and tools available for solving pest-related concerns.
Why Pest Control Is A Year-Round Task In Naples
NOAA weather data shows that the average daily high temperatures in Naples range from 74 to 90 degrees, and the city receives roughly 54 inches of rain compared to the national average of 38. The region’s year-round warmth and moisture appeal to many types of pests that plague local homes and businesses. For this reason, we often recommend ongoing home and yard pest control performed by a professional.
All The Ways Pests Can Wreak Havoc In Your Home
Depending on the specific type of troublesome pest, local homeowners may face various risks involving health concerns, costly property damage, and more. Consider the following examples:
Rodents: Mice and rats are known carriers of leptospirosis, tularemia, salmonellosis, and rat-bite fever, and also will potentially contaminate or damage properties such as harming insulation, drywall, and electrical wiring.
Cockroaches: As known carriers of salmonellosis, typhoid fever, and E.coli infection, cockroaches also generate accumulations of excrement, shed skin, and other allergens that might trigger adverse reactions.
Termites: Despite their small size, termites are wood-consuming pests that bring about billions of dollars in annual property damage.
Mosquitoes: The mosquito is a continual public health concern in many parts of the world today as a source of malaria, the West Nile virus, the Zika virus, and others.
Most property owners allocate key assets such as time and financial resources toward acquiring, maintaining, and improving their homes. Therefore, residential pest control problems are best handled by a licensed professional who can perform home pest control services.
The Hassle Of Do-It-Yourself Pest Control
Are you considering how to do home pest control yourself? Avoid making the same error that many local property owners do by purchasing do-it-yourself home treatment options from internet retailers or home improvement stores. Although these ambitious efforts involve good intentions, many of these products generate only short-term progress and represent “one-size-fits-all” solutions for pest-related problems that require a customized approach.
