Why We’re Thankful For Good Pest Control in Baton Rouge

Bad & Good Pest Control in Baton Rouge

There’s much to be thankful for when you’re a homeowner. It’s a fantastic feeling to have your own corner of the world after years of renting. You can pick paint colors and hang pictures with actual nails! You can also change the address on your license confident you won’t have to again in twelve months. But like Spiderman’s uncle said, “With great power comes great responsibility.” Appliances, yard work, and plumbing are all now your obligation. And so is pest control. Though seemingly just another chore, be thankful for good pest control in Baton Rouge.   

Protect Your Property

As a homeowner, your house is more than your most significant investment. It’s your sanctuary and what protects you and your family from the outside world. Termites cause hundreds of millions of dollars in damages every year. And that’s just in the state of Louisiana! Regular termite treatment protects your home’s value—and your family’s security. Rodents chewing and nesting in your walls and foundation can damage your home as well. All in all, everyone sleeps easier when they protect their home from these tiny mammals.

Protect Your Health

  • Bitter Bites: They’re more than nuisances. Mosquitos, ants, and spiders all can bite. The severity of the bites depends on your level of allergy. But itchiness is always something you want to avoid.  
  • Mosquito Misery: In recent years, the notoriety of mosquitos has grown.  Their bites can spread West Nile and Zika viruses to humans. Mosquito abatement doesn’t only give you a weekend-long reprieve from these pervasive pests. It can protect your family and friends from the chance of getting sick.
  • Roach Unrest: Fortunately, cockroaches are unlikely to bite humans. Unfortunately, they still carry organisms that can cause some awful-sounding illnesses. Diseases you only had heard of in the Oregon Trail such as Typhoid fever, dysentery, and cholera. Less dire, but just as gross, they also can trigger asthma and spread E.coli and streptococcus.
  • Rodent Woes: Remember the cliché in old movies of women jumping a chair when they saw a mouse? It turns out they were pretty smart to avoid them. Keeping rodents out of your house can protect your family’s health as well. Remember, most people believe rats spread the bubonic plague after all. But according to the Center for Disease Control, they still spread other diseases.
