Protect Your Home & Health: The Advantages of Professional Pest Control

While the fall breeze is a welcoming change for people in southeast Alabama, it increases the pests population like stink bugs, acorn weevils, ladybugs, boxelder bugs, and house spiders, making things worse for property owners.

At the same time, summer is most annoyingly famous for mosquitos, while Spring brings ticks, fleas, wasps, ants, and termites with it in southwest Georgia. 

Battling with such vast species of pests can be challenging on your own, for you must ensure they’re terminated while minimizing damage to your property. Tabor Pest Control has a professional staff with vast expertise and training on these pests to help you achieve just that.

What are the benefits of professional pest control services?

As a property owner, you try to keep things sanitized, ensuring no bugs enter your home or build a colony to destroy your property from within. But you can never be sure because they’ll get in there even through the tiniest cracks you’re unaware of.

For example, stink bugs are considered one of the most difficult pests to deal with, causing a big nuisance in Alabama as they like to cluster on the sunny side of homes for warmth.

As weather changes and fall turns up, these annoying bugs would try to get inside your climate-controlled property and cause havoc by flying around once they’ve settled their colony. 

It is difficult to find the right time to apply preventive measures and look for signs of infestation before it can take place. Our team knows how these pests work and can keep you protected.

At Tabor, we know when and how to do an effective treatment to minimize considerable damage. We’ll ensure that your property faces minimum damage, so you don’t lose money.

2. Reduction of health risks

Pests can affect your or your family’s health in various ways, such as causing an allergic reaction, respiratory disease, and in general, affecting you mentally. 

A hired professional from Tabor can quickly identify which pest is causing a nuisance in your space and find effective ways to eliminate it.

3. Savings in the long run

Sometimes a whole colony of pests is eating up your home’s foundation without you knowing anything about it. While a one-time pest control service can solve these extreme cases, you must also consider a long-term plan.

Sometimes pests don’t go quickly, and pests might reoccur under certain weather conditions or depending on where your property is located. For such cases having a continual maintenance plan is necessary.

This would save you a lot of money in the long run. It’s difficult to predict the costs as it’s based on the kind of service you’re getting, the size of your property, and the location of your property.

✅ We at Tabor Pest Control understand the value of hard-earned money and quality of work, which is why we are dedicated to providing excellent personal service. If a customer is unsatisfied at any time, Tabor guarantees that its technicians will not return until the problem is solved. If not, Tabor refunds the last service payment plus 10%.

Access to expert knowledge 

1. Identification of pests

A mistake in identifying the kind of pest infesting your house can do more damage to your health and property. It would also lead to using the wrong treatment, which would also be a waste of money.

Tabor has cultivated its employees’ pest control expertise and has built its reputation on their service.

As a result, employees are up-to-date on the latest techniques and products.

An in-depth knowledge about the species of pests helps early detect the kind of weed, insect, animal, microbe, or any other organism. This correct identification can help to quickly handle the situation and use the proper control treatment to eliminate them. 

2. Use of safe and effective treatments

When you identify the pest by yourself, you would just get the kind of treatment you think is right and spray it everywhere, which is a waste of money, resources, and the effectiveness of treatment.

With a professional, the benefit is that we have various ways to remedy the situation. While chemical treatment is one of them, we would try other treatments first.  

Knowing the kind of pest we need to attack in different ways will be used to eliminate its presence. We wouldn’t use unsafe products which could harm your children and pets. 

3. Implementation of preventive measures

Preventive measures include various things such as removing the pests’ food source, blocking their entry and exit, and using fewer pesticides or effective ways to utilize them when needed. 

A professional not only uses chemicals to kill the pests troubling you but also uses other preventive measures to do the job.

When’s the best time to get professional pest control started?

It’s best to hire a professional pest control in early Spring. That’s when you can destroy the colonies and prevent nests from forming. It will last longer as summer is prime time for insects to multiply and form colonies on your property. 

How long does pest control usually take?

It depends majorly on the level of infestation your property is facing and the size of your property. The location is another important factor as some places easily get infested more often than others. 

The kind of treatment would be using pesticides depending on the pest, preventive measures, or a combination of both. 

Preventive measures usually take about 30 minutes, but extermination may need a full day.
