Top 5 Reasons Your Home Needs an Exterminator

We understand that hiring an exterminator can seem unnecessary or even like overkill. 

Yet, in our experience at Venice Pest Control, people don’t understand the benefits that come along with an exterminator, and a lot of times, they think they’re only for out of control situations because nobody has explained further. 

For that reason, we’re going to break down five different reasons that your home needs its own exterminator, so you can understand why calling one in should be a high priority. 

Let’s start with our number one reason and the most serious concern for us:

1. Your Health and Safety

Pests pose a huge health risk to you and your loved ones. Many of the most common pests such as rodents, ticks or mosquitoes are unfortunately very adept at transferring diseases. 

Mice and rats can carry Hantavirus, which can be fatal. Ticks carry Lyme disease, which infects you with flu-like symptoms. Finally, mosquitoes aren’t limited to carrying only one illness. They can infect you with West Nile Virus or even Zika.

Now, every rodent or mosquito doesn’t carry disease. However, it’s impossible to know which do, so it’s best to get rid of them all quickly. 

2. Keep Your Food Clean and Safe

Aside from direct contact with you, pests can also infect your food with all sorts of bacteria. 

That bacteria can inflame any current medical conditions you’re currently dealing with and cause many more. Using proper food storage can reduce the risk, but an exterminator can eliminate the issue entirely. 

3. Protect Your Property

Pests don’t only pose a risk to living things. They can also cause the ruin of your home. From termites to cockroaches, they both can quickly invade your home and do significant damage to the structure itself. 

4. Find Their Entrance

You can eliminate the pests inside the home all you want. But if you don’t know where the pests are coming in from, you can’t reliably keep them gone. Luckily, that’s another area where the expertise of an exterminator can help. 

They can investigate the property and find any crack or crevice that could be an entrance. 

5. Give Yourself Peace of Mind

You don’t have to live in a pest-infested home. You don’t have to continue worrying when or if a pest will pop up. You can relax and have peace of mind that your furniture is clean and your counters haven’t been trampled on while you slept. 

All of these benefits are only a step away when you reach out to an exterminator. If you’re ready to take advantage of all of them, you know what to do.
