Why Pest Control?
Our homes are one of the most expensive and critical purchases we make in our lifetime. The home plays a central role in our personal lives. It shapes the development of our families, and ensures our ability to rest, recharge, and reset from everyday life. So why not protect it from possible physical destruction, or disease caused by bugs and other pests?
Do-It-Yourself Pest Control Isn't Always Enough
You may not know what you’re doing and many over the counter or home remedies are only treating the surface of the pest problem. Improper pest treatments can make your pest issues altogether worse. Most infestations are hidden away and require trained professionals, like Landlock Pest Control’s Certified Pest Control Technicians, to truly eliminate the source of the pest infestation. Every pest control situation is different and our professional exterminators are trained to handle, mix, and apply each product safely and effectively with the proper equipment and protective gear.
Pests Pose Health Risks
Some of the most common pests, like rodents, roaches, fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes, transmit terrible diseases to humans and animals. Roaches, mice and rats are not only destructive, they can contaminate food, spread disease, and trigger allergies. Fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes spread vector-borne, zoonotic diseases such as Lyme disease, West Nile Virus, and Zika in humans. Not only can they affect our health, but also our household pets are at risk! Did you know that canine heartworm disease is caused by mosquitoes? Or that Rickettsiosis (Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever) and Lyme disease is caused by ticks in humans and our pets? As well as Tapeworms and Baronellosis from fleas?
Many pests that invade our homes are entering because they have found a food source. Wood destroying pests like termites and carpenter ants can literally be dining on your home. They may be hiding in the walls and causing extensive damage, before you even notice they are making a meal out of your home. The worst news is wood damage caused by insects is NOT covered under your homeowners insurance. Termites and carpenter ants aren’t the only pests making a meal out of your home, silverfish and carpet beetles eat clothing, upholstery, books, wallpaper, and food in pantries.
Peace of Mind and Stress Free Living From Regular Pest Control Services
A clean, well-kept house doesn’t necessarily mean that your home is pest free. Our living spaces are very attractive to bugs and pests for a variety of reasons. Regularly scheduled PEST CONTROL provides the solution to the prevention of bugs and insects in and around your home. We regularly apply a plant based solution via high powered sprayer to the exterior of the home, from top to bottom, onto and under the foundation, and throughout the yard. Treatments may also be applied inside the home as needed. This prevents the infestation of common pests like ants, spiders, roaches, fleas, ticks, and mice, just to name a few. Regular Pest Control also cuts down the progression and spread of harmful diseases, including deadly viruses carried by insects. Landlock Pest Control is your solution to the pest problems and prevention.
“Pest control professionals play a key role in today’s society, working year-round to protect our homes, families and businesses from the many threats associated with pests,” said Cindy Mannes, vice president of public affairs at NPMA. “While the tireless work these men and women perform should be recognized every day, National Pest Management Month is the perfect time of year to remind homeowners and business owners to be vigilant in pest-proofing their properties at the start of spring, and of the importance of working with a licensed pest control professional before an infestation gets out of hand.” The onset of spring brings warmer weather and increased pest activity, and many of these pests can move indoors without leaving visible warning signs of an infestation until it’s too late.” National Pest Management Month Recognizes the Professional Pest Control Industry's Work to Protect Against the Diseases and Dangers of Pests
