If you are a New York homeowner, you know all about the many threats your home can face in a given year. Inclement weather, burst pipes, or breaking appliances are just a few of the challenges a homeowner might face in a given year. So, given all the unpredictable threats your home might face, why not protect it from the threats that you can such as pests. Pests are a year-round threat to homes, and depending on which pests you are dealing with, there is no shortage of threats that they can pose. They can spread diseases, they can bite and sting and some can cause costly property damage. While that might seem dire, here’s the good news: you can protect your home from pests all year long with a pest protection plan from BHB Pest Elimination.
What Causes Pest Infestations?
Given the vast array of pests that we face here in New York, there are tons of causes for pest infestations. Pests often invade homes in search of food, water, or shelter. Therefore, things like the improper storage of food or trash could be big factors in attracting pests inside. Furthermore, many pests thrive in moist environments which means things like leaks, flooding, and other moisture issues could lead to pest infestations.
In addition to finding food and water, many pests enter homes simply because there is a way inside. Holes in the exteriors of homes such as around pipes, vents, and utility lines provide easy access to the interiors of homes. Pests can come through cracks in the foundation, cracks under doors or around windows, and some can even come up with drain pipes. All in all, there’s no shortage of reasons why pests might choose to infest your home. That’s why ongoing pest control is the only way to ensure your home remains pest-free all year long.
Why Choose Ongoing Pest Control?
Many property owners choose to address pest problems on a case-by-case basis. While this can work to eliminate infestations once they’ve occurred, it doesn’t take into account all the things that can go wrong before the infestations are taken care of. Many pests such as rodents and cockroaches spread harmful bacteria and pathogens which can lead to all sorts of dangerous diseases. Other pests like termites and carpenter ants can inflict costly property damage to your home before you get around to eliminating them. As such, the only way to ensure your home and your health remain safe from the threat of pests is with an ongoing pest protection plan.
In addition to handling pest problems as they arise, homeowners might also choose to deal with pest issues on their own. However, most people don’t possess the proper experience, expertise, or equipment to effectively deal with pest problems. Therefore, most people wind up wasting their time and hard-earned money on products and devices that end up being not all that effective.
