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 outlets
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.
