The Importance of Interior & Exterior Pest Control

Being proactive rather than reactive when it comes to a pest control plan includes all facets of your home – interior and exterior, and is more beneficial than you think. Pests, especially in Florida, are active year round. These pests can result in damage such as structural damage from burrows in foundation, chewed electrical wires, and even diseases such as Lyme disease. But, if caught early enough can save you time, money, and the damage caused. So what’s the general process of pest control? What does it include? And finally, what are the benefits of maintaining both consistently? Let’s break it down!

Interior Pest Control

Interior pest control is the act of treating an indoor environment, typically a home and all its rooms including basements and attics. This is what comes to mind the most when you think about getting those bugs and critters out the door. Pests that invade the home are typically bugs and small rodents wanting food, water, and shelter. The process usually includes pesticides to help eliminate the problem pest that is already in the home. A licensed technician will inspect each area and crevice of home to ensure proper service is provided. Ultimately, this is a proactive and reactive treatment that is used to not only protect the home itself, but also the items in your home (fleas love that comfy couch you have and roaches thrive in warm electronics) and the health of your family.

Exterior Pest Control

Exterior pest control is performed around the perimeter of your home or building/structure providing a protective barrier with pesticides. Think invisible force field for all critters to keep out of the area. This process might also involve filling any breaches in the home’s exterior with caulk, sealants, etc. Typically a proactive treatment, it protects the foundation of your home and potential interior infestations. One extra step in ensuring you don’t have to deal with problems caused by bugs, rodents, etc. inside. Exterior pest control eradicates specific kinds of pests that originate outside of the home, like mosquitoes, ticks, fire ants, and even small creatures.

So, Why Both?

Pest control maintenance has several short term and long term benefits. Creating a tailored, regular treatment with a pest control specialist can ensure protection of your lawn, garden, and home.

Experts know what bugs are around the area, how to treat them, and ultimately how to solve your pest problem. Don’t spend your time worrying about investigating and understanding the insects/rodents involved and the chemicals needed to treat them when you can lean on a licensed expert for support.

Saves Money

Regular pest management services proactively cut pests off at the pass and prevent a small issue from blowing up into a big one.
