Understanding Why Every Home Has Individual Pest Control Needs

When it comes to controlling pests in and around your home, there’s no one-size-fits-all solution. Every home has unique needs for everything from mosquito control to indoor pest management. Here are a few reasons why no two homes are identical in terms of pest control.

Moisture Levels
Homes with a lot of moisture inside and out tend to be more attractive to pests than drier properties. This is especially true for mosquitos. If you have standing water in your yard from a decorative element, such as a bird bath, or from poor drainage, you will need pest control that focuses specifically on controlling mosquitos, beetles, mayflies, and other water-loving insects.

Pets
If you have a pet, your pest control company will need to work a little harder to keep the bugs at bay. Your animal’s fur makes a perfect hiding spot for small pests. In addition, the more time your pet spends outside, the more likely your pet is to bring pests into your home. Fleas and ticks are especially problematic for households with pets. These bugs make your pet itchy, but they can also jump from your pet onto other surfaces in your home, including onto you. If you own horses or livestock, there are additional insects, such as horseflies, that you will have to combat.

Climate
The climate in which you live dictates the kinds of pests that you’re most likely to find in your home. Mosquitos, for example, love warm, humid climates. Your pest control company should tailor their treatments to target bugs that thrive in your area.
