Welcome to my site about pest control. I'm Miranda Maloney. Although many people fuss loudly about the presence of spiders in the home, these creatures often clear out the bugs that cause far worse problems. Spiders consume beetles, cockroaches, moths and other pests that wreak havoc throughout the house. Thankfully, however, you can hire a pest control professional to eliminate bugs in your home if you do not want to co-habitate with spiders. In fact, pest control professionals can eliminate the spiders as well. I will share information about pest control tactics, both natural and commercial, on this site. Please follow along to learn more.
There are a lot of things to consider when moving into a home. While things like financing and making improvements before moving in may take up much of your time, it's also important to keep pests in mind when moving into a new home. Pests are something that can affect any home no matter its age or location. Pest control is an important part of making sure that pests do not cause any major damage to your new home. Here's what you should know about pest control when moving into a new house.
Pests Are Probably Already Present
Even if you buy a newly built home, the chances are that there is already some sort of pest infestation already underway. Existing homes can have pest infestations that have developed over time and were unnoticed by the previous owners. New homes are also prone to pests. They can come in on the materials used to build the home. The process of building a new home also leaves walls and other areas open and exposed for pests to get into. When you move into a new home, even if it's new construction, you should be on alert for pests from the beginning.
Look Into Current Pest Control
When purchasing a new home, it's important to look into what is already being done to manage pest populations. Is the home already receiving pest control services? What is the history of these services and how often are they done? If it's a new construction home, you should look to see if it was built with pest-resistant materials or if any pest control services have been performed recently. A pest inspection should be done before moving in so that you can have an idea of what you're up against. The average cost of a pest inspection ranges from $50 to $200.
Regular Pest Control Is Needed
After moving into a new home regular pest control is necessary for dealing with any current pest populations and for preventing future infestations. The cost of pest control varies depending on what type of pests are common in your area, the size of your home, and the company performing the service. On average, monthly pest control costs between $40 and $45 per visit. Semi-monthly ranges from $50 to $60 and quarterly from $100 to $300.
Moving into a new home can be a very busy time. Keeping pest control in mind is important. In most new homes, even new construction, at least some pests are already present. An inspection before moving in will identify which types of pests are already present and what areas need to be treated. Regular pest control is also a must after moving into your new home.
