Why Professional Pest Control Is A Great Idea For Your San Diego Home

December 30, 2021

What is one thing that you love about your home? Many people choose to purchase their first home based on things like the property around it, interior design, and amenities. One thing many homeowners do not think about when buying their first home is how susceptible it may be to common San Diego-area pest problems.

The good news is you do not have to tolerate having pests in your house. Here are some things you should know about the professional pest control services offered here in San Diego and how residential pest control could benefit you and your home.

Pest Control Is A Year-Round Task For San Diego Homes

Snow has only ever been recorded here in San Diego a total of five times in 125 years. We mention this because the only thing that stops pests from invading homes is cold weather. Because of our climate's yearly warmth, pests in our area never stop being a problem. In order to keep frequent household-invading pests from breaking into your home, you need a solution that works year-round which is just one of the reasons that Bite Away Termite and Pest Control offers four-season pest protection in San Diego. In short, all of our local pest control options are designed to work around seasonal changes to best address pest pressures no matter when or how they are trying to invade.

The Many Different Problems Pests Can Create Around Your Home

San Diego is home to many different kinds of pests. We have larger pests like raccoons, skunks, and groundhogs and tiny pests like fleas, bed bugs, and flies. One thing you should know about pests, in general, is that they always cause at least one of three problems.

  1. Some pests are just annoying. They cause annoyances by doing things like existing, flying around, and making noise.
  2. Some pests in our area are more than just irritating—they are also destructive. Termites, carpenter ants, and rodents are three great examples of destructive pests. Termites and carpenter ants destroy wood, and rodents chew on everything.
  3. Another thing rodents do is get people sick, which brings us to the final problem pests cause. Some pests, like rodents and roaches, are filthy and spread disease through fecal droppings. Other pests have venom, like spiders and wasps. There are even some pests in our area that cause allergies and asthma with their dry skin and droppings.

Why DIY Pest Control Can Be A Waste Of Time And Money

There are many methods and strategies you can use to reduce your chances of finding pests indoors. Most involve sealing your home's exterior, keeping things clean, and addressing other attractants that draw in pests. The only problem is, when pests get indoors, they won't leave easily.

If you face an infestation inside your San Diego home, do not turn to store-bought pesticides or similar products. Not only are pesticides dangerous when used improperly, but they often act as a band-aid to a much bigger problem. If you don't want to waste money or get injured trying to handle pests on your own, you need professional local pest control.
