Why Understanding the Habits of Each Pest is Critical to Efficient Pest Control Services?
There are a lot of different factors that go into efficiently handling pest control issues. For example, an emergency service call is easier to deal with even though the population of pests is much higher. It is a singular focus that we handle quickly and comprehensively.
Our Monthly Pest Control Service Option
With our monthly pest control service plan, we visit your house or business each month prepared to stop emergency pest control issues before they happen. The program is cost-effective, efficient, and comprehensive.
Because we have a deep understanding of pests, their lifecycle, and habits, we can treat for their presence before they emerge. In so doing, we help prevent those times when pest populations become so large that they are an emergency.
The Lifecycle of Pests
Pests have lifecycles that allow us to exploit their behaviors and control their populations. Rats and mice can be pests all year long, but they are also more active as pests in the late fall, winter, and early spring, where there are fewer resources outdoors. Keeping mice populations very small is essential to prevent explosions in their numbers. One mouse can have eight babies per litter, and she can produce a litter every 6-8 weeks. That’s a lot of mice.
Insects are more predictable thanks to their lifecycle. Insects are always present but in different forms. The insect lifecycle generally includes eggs, larvae, pupa, and adults. We often notice the adults while the eggs, larvae, and pupa go unnoticed. Some orders of insects have an incomplete lifecycle, including eggs, instars, and adults. They bypass the larval and pupa stages and molt their exoskeletons until they become adults.
We can address insect populations throughout their lifecycle stages. We treat for eggs, larvae, pupa, and adults. Some processes include using hormones that force insects to either remain in one stage or change to the following lifecycle stage where they are more susceptible to pest control treatments.
Understanding Pests Habits
Understanding the habits of pests allows us to deal with their populations before they become enormous. Ants are an excellent example of how this works. There are fewer foraging ants and less swarming by controlling ants at the colony level. A swarm of ants is what you find in your kitchen when the entire colony shows up to clean up spilled sugar or empty soda cans. A smaller population at the colony means fewer emergency pest control service calls. We also remove the threat of a pest control issue by removing the colony.
The habits of pests allow us to remove them quickly and efficiently. We can pre-treat for specific pests, such as mosquitoes, beetles, rodents, and insects. Doing so keeps their populations small.
What You Can Do
We offer an affordable monthly pest control service that focuses on reducing emergency pest control service calls. Give us a call to learn more about that program, its costs, and availability. We provide comprehensive pest control services throughout the Bryan and College Station communities.
