If you’ve never hired a professional pest control company before, you may be wondering why so many people do it, especially here in Florida. Every time you go into the grocery store you walk past the pest control section, which has some common pesticides, mouse traps, etc. so why would you need to hire a company? The answers to that question are many and varied. Here are just some of the reasons that you may want to hire a pest control company.
1. Persistent Infestations
If you have had to repeatedly spray or apply pesticide for a particular pest, chances are good that you never actually eliminated them the first time, but just knocked back the population. If you’re not seeing a reduction in bugs, it’s because you haven’t effectively broken the pests’ egg cycles. One of the many benefits of hiring a pest control company is that they can provide the most effective treatment to eliminate your household pests. Professional technicians have been trained and licensed to know which specific pesticides to use, how to use them properly, and other steps that need to be taken to solve the problem. Ants are one of the most common insects that cause homeowners grief. You can spray them all day long, but unless you know to clean up the pheromone trails, you will find that the ants always come back. These little pieces of knowledge and training that a professional can offer can be extremely beneficial.
2. Avoid Further Damage
It has been shown that professional exterminators can get rid of your problem pests quicker and more effectively than most DIY pest control. They not only have professional grade products and equipment, but also the training to know how to use them. When time is of the essence, it is wise to get the job done quickly and effectively. For example, if you find a termite infestation in your home, you can spend lots of time and money trying to get rid of them on your own, only to find that in the meantime, your methods have not worked and they have continued to damage and compromise the structure of your home.
3. Safety Concerns
Aside from just being annoying, some pests also present a real danger to individuals and families. Anytime someone’s safety is at risk, you might want to consider calling a professional. For example, if you or someone in your household is allergic to bees or wasps, it is unwise to try to remove a beehive by yourself. Another time this might apply is if you are seeing lots of black widows or other poisonous spiders around your property. Even mosquitoes can be extremely harmful if carrying diseases. Keeping your family safe is of highest priority, and many people choose to hire the top pest control Florida has to offer.
4. Integrated Pest Management
IPM or Integrated Pest Management is an approach to pest control that uses environmentally-friendly methods that focus on prevention and rely on pesticides only as needed. Good pest control companies will do more than just spray your home for pests. Proper use of IPM would include an inspection to properly identify the pests, followed by recommendations for ways that you can prevent them in the future. These steps are then followed by a treatment for the specific pest and continuous monitoring to ensure that it has been properly taken care of. The extra steps taken by a pest control technician trained in IPM can ensure that the right products are applied and that proper steps are taken to prevent future problems.

Owner/President of Gregory’s Pest Control
I’m a 2nd generation pest control owner who started working for my father in 1999. I was raised in South Florida and feel blessed to call it home for my entire adult life. As a long-term Florida resident, I recognize the challenges of controlling the many different pests that thrive in our subtropical climate. In particular, I understand how difficult it can be to prevent pests from invading our homes and businesses. By helping families solve their pest problems so they can live safer, more comfortable lives, I feel I am also meeting my family’s commitment to help our community. When I’m not out fighting pests, you can find me on the golf course or out on a soccer field where I have been fortunate enough to coach soccer to kids of all ages for the past 20 years.
