Why Pest Control Is Important For Sacramento Homes

When it comes to homeownership, there are a few things you'll need. Insurance is top of the list. If anything happens to your home, you want to know you're covered. But, the essential protection that many homeowners go without is investing in pest control. Why? Because they don't understand how important it is to the health of their homes.

Let's take a look at a few of the pests that get into Sacramento homes, examine what dangers they present to property and health, and look at how pest control works to guard you against these threats. 

The Pests That Try To Invade Sacramento Homes

We have many pests that come into our yards and get into our homes. Let's break them down in this way:

Lawn Pests

Many pests damage lawns by tunneling in the ground or feeding on grass. Gophers, voles, and cicada killer wasps are the most common lawn pests.

Landscape Pests

Many pests eat the plants in landscaping and can be frustrating to deal with, such as gophers, voles, mice, and rats.

Wood Chewers

We have several pests that chew on wood. Some eat it. Some chew into the wood to create galleries for their nests. Mice, rats, termites, carpenter ants, and carpenter bees are the common pests that do this.

Pests That Eat Your Stuff

Many pests do this—clothing moths, silverfish, carpet beetles, mice, rats, and many more. When insects and rodents get into a home, they damage irreplaceable items.

Pests That Make You Sick

Some pests, like mosquitoes, hang out in your yard and can make you sick when they bite you and spread a virus. Some pests get into your home, like ticks, fleas, flies, cockroaches, and many more.

Pests That Bite & Sting

Wasps, bees, fire ants, mosquitoes, spiders, and other pests that bite or sting are irritating to have on your property, and for some people, they are a serious health threat.

The Problems Pests Can Cause In Sacramento Homes

If you don't have pest protection, the pests listed above can cause many problems for you. Let's break them down in this way:

  • Lawn care and landscaping costs can go through the roof.
  • When pests tunnel under foundation slabs, they can cause the slabs to crack.
  • Damage to the wood of your home, over time, can cause structural issues that are costly to repair.
  • When mice and rats chew on wires, they can cause a house fire; this can lead to a complete loss of property and presents a significant threat to your family's safety.
  • When pests get into storage areas, they can damage valuable keepsakes.

The Health Problems Pests In Your Sacramento Home Can Cause

Whether a pest stings you and administers venom or bites you and transmits a disease, there is a risk of serious and possibly life-threatening illness. Individuals who have an allergy to venom or insect saliva can become dangerously ill. This allergy can develop later in life and take seniors by surprise.

What Is Pest Management In Sacramento?

Pest management is a pest control methodology that uses proactive methods and products to prevent pest problems before they occur. When you invest in a pest control service plan for your home, your pest control provider will routinely visit your home and apply pest maintenance and appropriately selected products to maintain a barrier that keeps pests out.

Here are a few examples:

  • Apply granules around your home to address pests that crawl. This application gives you protection between visits.
  • Caulking and other exclusion materials may be applied around utilities and moisture points, creating a natural barrier to deter pests from getting in.
  • Apply misting application to knock down mosquitoes, ticks, and other pests in critical areas.
  • Use liquid termiticides or bait stations to actively eliminate termite colonies as workers come to feed on your home.
  • Mound treatments and baiting may be applied to control ant pests that present a threat.
  • Removing spider webs. Not only does this make your home look nicer, it potentially eliminates hundreds of spider eggs. When you have a lower population of spiders near your home, you have fewer encounters with them on the inside of your home.

Is It Time?

We could tell you much more about pest control benefits, but we wanted to keep this article short. Hopefully, you see that investing in a pest control service plan will protect your lawn, landscaping, home, and belongings from damage. It also gives you protection from pest-borne diseases.
