They say that about 80% of the population will never hire a pest exterminator. Most people trying to do it themselves end up taking many trips to the store for products. They live with the pest for a long time, creating a lasting disruption of the household. They carelessly apply pesticides in a manner that exposes themselves and their family. All in all it complicates the issue way more than it must. And money gets wasted without solving the problem. We know!
Everyday people call us after trying to do it themselves. These people are worn out and frazzled. One thing about pest control, is that it isn’t like repairing a broken water pipe. Instead of hiring a plumber, many people will watch a how-to video. Pest control is not as straight forward. There are variables. It takes training to know what to look for, and what to do. There is more to it than applying bug spray or setting mouse traps. Likewise, you need to know how to set the traps strategically or apply the products properly. We all know that few people read instructions. I would bet that around 95% of DIY pest controllers do not read the pesticide Label on how to legally apply it. Do you want to be one of those people?
