5 Reasons You Should Have Regular Pest Control

Updated January 15, 2020

The Importance of Regular Pest Control

Pest prevention is your first line of defense against bugs and rodents—bugs and rodents who want to invade your home or business, destroy your property and cost your hundreds or even thousands of dollars in damage. If you’re seeing rodent droppings, cockroach tunnels or cockroach debris, you’ve already missed your window—you’ve already missed out on preventing the problem before it starts.

While some pests are visible and easy to detect, like cockroaches, others—like termites, for starters—can stay hidden under floorboards and inside walls for years, eating away at the foundation of your property and racking up costly extermination and repair bills. That’s just one reason you need preventative pest control. Need another—or another five?

1. Pests Degrade Human Health

Think infections and diseases from rodents and bugs are a thing of the past? Think again. Many common household pests, such as rodents, ticks and mosquitos, can carry dangerous diseases that can infect humans. Since there’s no way to know if a pest is carrying a disease until it’s too late, the best way to protect your home and family is with regular pest control.

2. Pests And Rodents Destroy Valuables

Termites, carpenter ants, carpet beetles and silverfish are just a few of the creepy crawlies known for destroying household objects and can be the most difficult to detect. Silverfish, for example, are tiny little bugs that live off of organic fibers – like your favorite book, a photo album of the kids or all those boxes you’ve been keeping in storage. The same goes for termites – most termite infestations go unnoticed for years and, by the time it’s visible, ridding the infestation is the least of a property owner’s concerns.

3. Protect Food And Other Perishables

Home and business owners know how important it is to keep pests and rodents away from food and other perishables. Nothing spells disaster like cockroaches in a restaurant kitchen on inspection day…

Even the cleanest kitchens struggle with cockroaches in warm climates like Memphis, especially when produce companies are carting goods in and out and grease is piling up under the stove, behind the refrigerator and in other hard-to-reach places. You can’t afford to wait until it’s too late to tackle these nasty invaders – it could cost you your business or your family’s health. Protect against indianmeal moths, house ants, cockroaches other pests and rodents by contacting Foundation Pest today.

4. “Do-it-Yourself” Doesn’t Cut It

We all love a good DIY project, but keeping your home or business pest-free is as likely to fail (just like most Pinterest projects…). Over-the-counter pest control products are usually a gimmick, always failing to meet the manufacturer’s promises and, at best, only put a Band-Aid on the real problem. Instead of wasting money buying repetitive treatments and subjecting your family to “bug bombs” and other ineffective products, invest in regular pest prevention from Foundation Pest. We’ll save you money in the long run—and the peace of mind is priceless.

5. Stress-Free is the Way to Be

Pests and rodents make everyone miserable. Nobody wants to wake up to cockroaches on the kitchen counters or moths eating their favorite blouse. Sometimes the smallest pests are the most stressful, as anyone that’s experience a termite infestation will tell you.
