The Benefits of Regular Pest Control: Creating a Barrier Against Pests

If you see a bug in your home, your first thought is likely to call a pest control company. But what if you could prevent the bug from being in your home in the first place? With a regular pest control plan, you can do exactly that. In this guide, we’ll explain what regular pest control is and the benefits you can expect when you sign up for one. 

What Is Regular Pest Control?

Regular pest control can have many names—pest control maintenance, pest control management, regular pest control, preventative pest control, and more. Whatever it’s called, the concept remains the same. It’s a selection of tiered plans, usually paid on a monthly basis, where an exterminator comes on a regular schedule and sprays the home and yard to prevent common pests. These visits may also include an investigation to make sure there are no signs of infestation. 

Why Regularly Scheduled Pest Control Is Worth It

One of the most common questions we’ve heard about pest control maintenance plans has been, “Is it worth it?” From our professional experience, there are several reasons why regular pest control is well worth the investment, especially in Florida. Here are the main benefits you’ll experience when you take advantage of regular visits from your technician.

1. Prevent Pests Year Round 

If you’ve lived in Florida for any length of time, you know that pests are not just a spring and summer problem. They can get in your home and take over your yard all year long. The hot, humid environment of Florida makes it the perfect home for several annoying pests such as ants, mosquitoes, roaches, and highly destructive termites. 

One way to reduce their numbers and keep your home and yard pest-free is through a pest management plan. Pest control is not something that should only be considered in emergencies—a pest management plan helps prevent rodent and bug problems before an emergency arises. Preventative pest control creates a barrier around your home that deters and eliminates pests from your home. By regularly spraying for pests, this barrier remains unbroken and effective. 

2. Protect Your Home from Illness 

Pests in your home are not only unsightly—they can pose a danger to your health. Whether it’s from bites, stings, allergies, or the diseases they carry, pests are a health hazard. Certain pests like rodents, mosquitoes, ticks, and roaches are notorious for the diseases they carry and food contamination. Regularly scheduled pest control keeps these dangerous pests at bay—allowing you to enjoy your home and backyard without risking illness or health problems. 

3. Avoid Structural Damage

Rodents, certain ant species, and termites are known for their destructive nature. These pests can destroy wooden structures, chew through electrical wiring, and even damage piping—creating dangerous structural, fire, and water hazards. Depending on the damage, you could face costly repairs to your home and property. 

Investing in a Border Patrol Green Plus plan saves you from having a serious problem with these pests. Your technician will not only spray for these pests to create a barrier against them—they’ll also search your home during each visit for any signs of an infestation of these pests, allowing them to treat the problem before it puts your home at risk for structural damage.  

4. Stop Pest Problems Before They Become an Infestation 

The ultimate goal of regular pest control is to avoid infestations. Seeing a lone ant or a small spider in your home every now and then is not a major issue, but you do begin to have problems when an infestation occurs. Unfortunately, pest infestations can often be hard to spot by the untrained eye. Perhaps, that lone ant is actually a termite or you’re seeing a spider because your home has become a good place for it to catch food—it can be hard to know. A professional pest control technician knows the signs to look for, and by spraying regularly, they stop pests before they can become an infestation.

5. Customized Treatment to Your Needs

Regular pest control plans are often tiered. Maybe you just need basic protection against the most common pests. Or perhaps, you need more thorough protection against damaging pests like termites or mosquitoes. You could even start with a more basic plan and then upgrade if you like the results you see. Regardless of your requirements, you can find a plan with the services and prices that match your unique needs. 

6. Protect Your Peace of Mind 

At the end of the day, regular pest control gives you peace of mind. No one wants bugs or rodents in their house. Sickness and structural damage are stressful to deal with and steal your ability to relax in your own home. With a pest management plan, you can rest easy knowing that your home and family are protected. A small monthly investment can lead to year-long peace of mind.
