Why Should I Consider Quarterly Pest Control Service? Why regular, preventative pest control matters to residents of Vancouver, Camas, and Ridgefield

by | Mar 24, 2020 | Pest Control

Pest infestations always happen at the most inopportune times. (But is there ever a convenient time for a pest infestation?) It never fails: You’re hosting people at your home, you’re about to leave town, or, like most of us, you have an incredibly busy day-to-day schedule and simply don’t need one more thing to have to deal with. 

Pest control for the layperson can be incredibly stressful, time consuming, and expensive. After all, there are a great number of pests that residents of Ridgefield, Camas, and the greater-Vancouver area might face at any given time throughout the year, and they all need to be dealt with in a very specific way. Who has the time to deal with all that? (Hint: It’s us! Professional exterminators!) 

Point being, you have a life to live, and our goal as your locally owned and operated pest control company is to save you some time, reduce your stress, and, most of all, remove pests from your home and prevent them from coming back. 

The key to this? Quarterly pest control. At Aspen Pest Control, we call it the Four Seasons Home Protection Plan. In fact, our data shows that well over 90% of our new customers choose this plan because it’s the perfect solution for their lifestyles, budgets, and pest control needs. 

Due to the climate in the Pacific Northwest, the Four Seasons Home Protection Plan is the perfect solution for the many seasonal pests we face throughout the year. It’s designed to remove the pests you currently have, prevent them from returning, and ward off the pests you probably would be experiencing if you weren’t utilizing preventative pest care that the Home Protection Plan provides.

The Aspen Pest Control Four Seasons Home Protection Plan is designed to control and prevent infestations from:

  • Sugar ants
  • Carpenter ants
  • Paper wasps
  • Hornets 
  • Yellow Jackets
  • Mice
  • Rats
  • Spiders
  • Boxelder bugs
  • Stinkbugs
  • Fleas
  • Bees
  • And many more local pests!

We recommend The Four Seasons Home Protection Plan to your friends and neighbors in Vancouver, Camas, and Ridgefield for a number of reasons, including:

  • We feel it’s better to be proactive rather than reactive about pest control, and after using our services, our customers agree.
  • It’s sustainable pest control per treatment cost, meaning more value for your investment.
  • We provide free re-treatments between your regular services — if your pests come back, so do we!
  • Spider web and wasp nest removal comes standard with this service.
  • After approximately 90 days, pest extermination products naturally break down, so quarterly pest services ensure the protection of your home never lapses! 
  • After initial issues are addressed, often the exterior treatment is all that is needed to maintain control. But of course, the inside is always included with the price. 
  • We provide an eco-friendly approach — one that’s 100% kid and pet friendly.
  • Rodent & insect control included at no additional cost.
  • We’re happy to go into crawlspaces and attics to check for pests, standing water, etc. — at no extra charge to you!
  • We’re efficient and communicative. We call before coming out for service, and always leave an itemized service report of what was done. 

Even more reasons why quarterly pest control is essential

Potential health risks: Pests like rats, mice, and fleas are carriers of disease. Ignoring these infestations and not taking swift action puts you and your loved ones in danger. Those who have respiratory issues or are immunocompromised are especially at risk. 

Rodents, in particular, can transmit viruses and bacteria through their waste. People should be extremely careful in situations where a rodent infestation is present. Once their droppings or  urine has dried, it can be extremely toxic when airborne. If you choose to clean up after a mouse infestation yourself, we recommend being extremely careful. The Centers for Disease Control provides easy-to-follow, detailed instructions for safe cleanup of mouse infestations. 

Relatedly, certain types of fleas can transmit typhus, and their bites can cause rashes and other extreme discomforts for those affected. There’s no better time than the present to remove these pests from your home. 

Potential damage to your home or property: Pests are not only a nuisance, but they can cause real damage to your house! Carpenter ants, for instance, can cause structural damage to your home by tunneling through wood and weakening its integrity. Over time can be just as destructive as termites. 

Relatedly, mice can cause a great deal of damage to your home through their infestations. Their gnawing damages wood, insulation, concrete, and even your electrical wiring, the latter of which means your home is at an increased risk for fire if you have a mouse infestation. Mice incisors are constantly growing. In fact, they regrow their incisors approximately every month, meaning their instinct to gnaw is at a constant. Prevent damage to your home and keep your family safe by treating these pests the moment you’re aware of them in your home!

DIY doesn’t always work: We fully appreciate folks who want to take pest control into their own hands, so much in fact that we’re committed to providing DIY recommendations to our community, but here’s the thing: DIY methods and tactics don’t always work. Sometimes, they can cause your pest infestations to be even worse. 

For instance, certain off-the-shelf ant sprays are ineffective because they don’t treat the infestation at its source, they only kill the pests that you can see. Furthermore, these sprays can also exacerbate your infestation by fracturing the colony and cause multiple colonies to develop. Preventative, long-term care delivered by experts with the right tools and knowledge gives you the peace of mind to know that the nuisances of pests will be a thing of the past!
