How Often Should You Get Treatment for Home Pest Control?

 Pest control can be tricky. How often should you get treatment for home pest control? There is no single answer. Climate, pest history and seasons can all have an affect. If you have had an on-going problem, most professionals will suggest bi-monthly treatments. Some pests, however, require treatment more seasonally, like rats in the wintertime or carpenter ants during the spring swarm season. Termites are notorious for causing on-going problems. Termite control is not one-and-done; baits are usually placed on a quarterly basis.

When Fumigation is Necessary vs General Pest Control

Not all pest control options are created equal. You’ve probably seen a home tented, but when is this really necessary? Fumigation, also known as “tenting,” is a treatment for the complete extermination of pests. Tenting is a drastic measure used to rid a structure of a severe infestation. Fumigation is also used on shipping containers to kill any exotic pests from overseas. General pest control, however, is a more localized approach for smaller problems such as rodents, carpenter ants and roaches.
