Do I Need Pest Control?

12 February 2024 · 3 min read

“Why do I need pest control?” It’s a question we hear all the time. Maybe you’re new to Florida, maybe you just moved into a new home, or maybe you never even considered the thought. They’re all valid reasons. We don’t judge. Regardless of where you happen to be on your homeowner journey, it’s important to know what home pest control does and the difference a professional service makes for families like yours.

Protecting your property

Modern home pest control has advanced so much that routine inside treatment is no longer necessary. In recent years, we’ve come to focus on physical barriers and outside treatments that prevent pests from entering our homes in the first place. As much as we love our homes, pests do too. Worse yet, they make for even more frustrating houseguests than your in-laws!

Some, known as WDOs or wood destroying organisms, include termites and carpenter bees. Naturally, these pests demolish wood, and when discovered decimating the structure of homes, have been found causing catastrophic levels of structural damage, often tens of thousands of dollars. Others, such as beetles, roaches and silverfish feast upon just about everything from clothes, to adhesives and even wallpaper. Even the nests of wasps and mud daubers leave unsightly stains in the exterior eaves and corners of homes long after removal.

Defending your health

It’s not just you being squeamish; it’s a natural reaction. Humans hate pests for good reason. Cockroaches can carry cholera and E. coli just to name a few. Rodents have been found to transmit hantavirus and salmonella. Pests of all varieties contribute allergens to the air we breathe, with infestations producing far more irritating particles. Plus, we can’t forget the bites, jabs and stings from Florida’s (often aggressive) wasps and hornets.

Greenhouse believes that personal health is priority number one when dealing with pests of any kind. It’s why we treat with EPA declared reduced risk products, and it’s why our technicians are thoroughly trained and background checked. We will never compromise on safety. From our family to yours, we focus on delivering the best possible pest control so that you can focus on being the best possible you.

Securing your peace of mind

The last thing any of us wants to deal with is another creepy crawly encounter right before bed, those darn ants on the counter that never go away, or a loved one screaming in fear and jumping on furniture. Infestations erode both our homes and minds, causing us to jump at shadows that may or may not be a bug when all we want is to peacefully prepare dinner. Some of us have been there, and that’s ok. You don’t have to endure it forever.

And it doesn’t stop there. Relying on a trained professional to spot and prevent potential infestations can save more than just a few bucks. Severe pest infestations routinely cost Florida homeowners thousands of dollars and months of headache. A dedicated home pest control technician doesn’t just apply treatment. They’re an invaluable source of ongoing advice for homeowners and a fantastic reference for personalized support.
