When people think about pest control one thing that is always on the mind is cost. How much will it cost to have my home and/or business pest-free? Is it worth it? Do pest control treatments work? When pest control is done right, you are getting a pest-free environment for less than the amount of money it takes to repair your home/business after pests have been in it. You’re saving money, which is a huge win!
The Attic Space
Pests love to make little homes in the attic because it’s quiet, cooler or, warmer (depending on where a pest makes its home). Attic’s are not busy with traffic so it’s the perfect environment for pests to stay safe while they build nests. While pests look for a place to build their nest, rummage for food and stay secure, they are causing massive amounts of damage. Damage to your insulation, damage to electrical wires as they chew through them, and damage to wood as they gnaw their way toward different areas of your home. They also leave their droppings/urine all over your attic (which can transmit disease) as well as making hazardous situations in your attic that could (and often does) lead to fires.
Where Pests Run Wild
Pests are all over your home when you’re sleeping. They travel to the kitchen where they look for something to eat. If you haven’t properly disposed of food or you have an open trash can, they will find something there to take back with them to the attic or to consume on the run. Pests also like to hang out in the bathroom where it’s dark and there is moisture. This is why we find so many insects in our bathrooms. The attic isn’t the only place that can sustain pest damage. Pests are everywhere and they can damage any room in your home which only increases the amount of money you’re about to pay for pest damages.
Pests can cause a lot of damage to the home. We are talking about $6,000 to $10,000 worth of damage. Pest control can cost (on average) between $100 to $300 per visit. That means you’re saving a lot of money in the long run. Pest damages can add up quickly because they are all over your home and using sprays and traps only works for a small period of time. Chances are, you have pests you don’t even know about because they stay hidden. Pest control companies are good at finding pests that are causing damage you’re unaware of.
