Pests are everywhere. In contrast to common myths, o house
does not need to be dirty and cluttered to have pest
infestation. Even the cleanest and well maintained homes are
sometimes infested with pests. There are several pests all
over Singapore that infest many homes. A speedy control
solution is needed. There are several professional pest
control firms in Singapore. However, there is a high degree
of apathy to calling the professional in many homes. Many
residents prefer to do pest control themselves. Below are
six major myths that prevent people from using professionals
to get rid of pests.
Myth one: There are only a few pests
Many people believe that they can control the pest
themselves since they only find very few with their naked
eyes. However, most of the pests hide in cracks and dark
corners and only come out when it is either dark or when not
seen. It is thus good to request for an inspection, as a
professional will get to know their hiding places and advise
accordingly. Do not judge by the few that you see. There
could be many other hidden ones.
Myth Two: I can buy pest control products in pest control
Most of the pest control products can be bought over the
counter. However, you might not know the very best for the
kind of pests at home. Furthermore, you might not clearly
identify the said pest. Thus, you may end up buying the
wrong product. Hiring a professional company would aid you
in identifying pests and the best control methods. Hiring a
professional also reduces the risk of food and water
contamination when spraying the product.
Myth Three: They are very costly
Many people around Singapore consider it costly to hire a
professional pest control firm. This is not true. Most of
the firms will do a free survey at home before giving you a
quote. It takes care of products and cleaning. It may be
higher than doing -it- yourself but it is worth the amount.
You might not fully exterminate the pests in one go.
Myth Four: I am only available after work hours
Most people would not consider pest control companies since
they are only available in the evenings and at weekends.
Most of the pest control firms have flexible schedules and
can work long into evening and at weekends. They are able to
fit into tight schedules and still do a good job.
Myth five: They are also not guaranteed to completely
eradicate the pests
It is true that pests might not be eradicated at a go. Pest
control firms would give you an action plan until they have
fully eradicated the pests. The quote includes all this
costs. The advantage with a pest control firm is that it
will ensure that the pests are all gone. You might not
follow up yourself due to time limitations.
Myth six: My security and theirs is not guaranteed
Pest control may involve climbing to the roof and other
high-risk places. Many people fear that they may be asked to
pay incase of injuries. Others fear that the professionals
may damage their house. Pest control firms insure their
workers against such risks. So, you would not be required to
pay any coin to cater for this. Likewise, they will leave
the place as they left it after they are done.
