While there are many products available for the home handyperson to use, there are some considerations.
Insurance and pest control
Risk to your family
If we ignore the risks of falling off ladders, crashing through ceilings or walls, damaging footings, all the normal DIY fails you see online – things can still go wrong. Unless you have industry knowledge and experience all you’re really doing is trial and error and taking a stab in the dark that something you bought off the shelf might work.
So with all the nasties you know that pests carry, why would you use trial and error to fix a problem?
Chemical risks and DIY pest treatments
The chemicals a licensed pest controller uses are targeted, tested, and highly efficient and effective. We also ensure that you, your family, your pets, and your home are safe while we treat for pests. We protect ourselves with industry standard PPE safety equipment. Unfortunately, over the counter treatments can’t guarantee these things.
Then there’s the risk that you might decide to follow some online recipe. This can be incredibly dangerous. All of our chemicals are premixed. We also know which chemicals can be used together, and which to avoid.
We also understand that funds can get tight and that’s why we have Jim Pay Plan powered by OpenPay so that you can split your payments into affordable instalments. This helps make cost not so much of an option.
Peace of Mind
Peace of mind is priceless.
So when you’re trying to work out if getting a professional pest controller in is actually worth it, look past the cost of the insecticide and think about the things we’ve listed here. Your home, family, and self are worth taking care of professionally.
