Happy New Year! 2021 is officially in the rearview mirror and 2022 is off and running. As you think about what you would like to accomplish and experience this year, it’s a good idea to consider the safety of your home or business in regards to pests. Wouldn’t it be nice to avoid the headaches of pest issues this year?

Let’s take a look at our top tips for better pest control in 2022:

Be Proactive So You Don’t Have to Be Reactive – While not every single pest issue is avoidable, a proactive approach to pest control can significantly reduce the number and severity of pest issues you experience. Proactive pest control methods include things like rodent exclusion, tick and mosquito treatments, and barrier treatments.

Don’t Let a Little Issue Become a Big Issue – The best time to eradicate a pest issue is as soon as you notice it. Don’t wait to see if it goes away on its own because it probably won’t, and it likely will get worse before it gets better if left unchecked. Contact your local exterminator right away to get the issue inspected and properly treated.

Arm Yourself with Knowledge – An educated homeowner is a prepared homeowner. Know what pests to look for each season and what the common signs of each pest are. Have a plan for what you will do if you have a pest issue. Our blog is an excellent resource with lots of valuable information and we are always just a phone call away at 518-280-9070.
