Most people will only interact with a pest control company like Mantis Pest Solutions when there is a problem. Since there is limited interaction between pest control technicians and customers, there is a lot that people that don’t understand about the pest control industry and what working with a pest control technician means. Mantis wants to change that. Here are five things that your pest control technician wants you to understand about our industry and services:

1 – A Clean Home Won’t Stop Pests

One thing that Mantis wants you to understand is that a clean home will not stop all pests from getting in. There is a misconception that dirty houses are all infested with pests and clean houses are not. This just isn’t true. Any home, no matter how clean or dirty it is, can be infested with pests like insects and rodents.

2 – We Need Your Help

Whether its debris and wood piles next to the house, or overgrown foliage all of these present harbors for pests. Keeping debris, wood piles and other items well maintained around the structure of your home will help reduce pest populations.

3 – You Don’t Need to Worry About Our Products

Many people are worried about the products that are used by pest control technicians to rid areas of pests. Fortunately, you don’t have to do this. The vast majority of the products we use to rid your home of pests are not harmful to your family or your pets. If we have to take more drastic measures or use a product that might be harmful, we will give you specific instructions on how to keep your family and pets safe.

4 – You Should Tell Your Neighbors if You are Infested

If you have an infestation in your home, your neighbors could be infested as well. Whenever you have a pest control technician come into your home, it is a good idea to let your neighbors know just in case they are having signs of a similar problem.

5 – You Will Get What You Pay For

Hiring a company to come in and take care of your pests might seem expensive, but when you add up all the failed attempts at using over-the-counter solutions or even home remedy solutions, you will probably quickly find that we can take care of the issue in a more affordable way. Better yet, it will be a long term solution.
