The Benefits of Pest Management

It’s no secret that most of the time all of the creepy, crawly critters and insects that we see in our home can cause quite the disturbance! A shared meal with friends and family can quickly become panicked when a guest spots a spider or mouse run across the kitchen floor, and beyond just being distracting- having pests in the home can cause many other issues as well. Here at Border Pest Control in Las Cruces, New Mexico, we strive to solve all of your pest issues with a strong and educated approach designed specifically for your situation. Choosing to have contact us to get your pest situation under control will not only put your mind at ease, but pest management has many other benefits as well.

Reduces Health Risks

Insects and rodents are often carriers of many diseases and other harmful pathogens and as they make themselves comfortable in your home, your risk of contracting whatever they are carrying around increases. Even common house pests such as fleas, mosquitoes and cockroaches could be transmitting harmful diseases such as malaria and plague!

Aside from carrying diseases that you don’t want anywhere near you or your family, pests also often wreak havoc on your skin when the come in contact with you and/or bite you. Some insect bites can cause swelling and itching that lasts for days and sometimes you find out the hard way that you are having an allergic reaction to a particular type of insect bite. Having a pest management plan in effect helps reduce your health risks overall and keeps those itchy bumps to a minimum!

Assists with Damage Prevention in Your Home

There are some pests that cause very obvious damage on your home, such as termites. But even other small pests can be creating a lot more damage than you might think. Pests will often burrow and chew on the materials holding your home together, such as the wooden frame of your home. Over time, as they continue to eat away the materials and nest in the framing of your home, the structural integrity can become compromised. Other pests such as rodents also like to nest in tight spaces in your walls and crawl spaces and they frequently use the materials that your home is made of to make homes of their own.

Saves you Money!

Many of us are always looking for ways to save a penny or two and surprisingly enough hiring a pest control company to work on your pest problems will save you money in the long run. Homeowners frequently try to diagnose and treat the pest invaded areas themselves, costing them hundreds of dollars in over the counter solutions. Those that are not trained in pest control management techniques are 67 times more likely to incorrectly apply insecticides. And in some cases the over application of certain over the counter harmful toxins could actually be making the problem worse! It will be more beneficial to invest in getting our team of experts to your home to properly assess the situation instead of throwing money away on multiple bottles and treatments at the store.

Less Cleaning

Keeping your home clean can sometimes feel like a full time job, especially when you’ve got unwanted guests such as insects and rodents making even more of a mess. Having a pest problem can be gross overall and pests often leave quite the trail of evidence behind them. Some of the debri left behind can sometimes include droppings and even dead bodies- yuck! By taking control of the situation early on you’ll be saving yourself a lot of time in the cleaning department.

Peace of Mind

All of the above benefits are certainly wonderful in their own way, but one of the most important things you can gain from acquiring a team of experts to tackle your pest problem is the peace of mind it will give you. Having pests running around your home is an unsettling feeling and can easily make home feel not as comfortable to you and your family.
