How Often Should A Pest Control Service Visit My Home

While keeping your house clean and sealing gaps to keep out “unwanted” creepy creatures can deter pest infestation, they don’t provide a 100% guaranty. This is especially true if you live in a termite-infested region or your neighbors are not proactive when it comes to pest control – for example, their yard is filled with containers where stagnant water collects, creating a nice breeding ground for mosquitoes, or they don’t keep their surroundings clean.

For this reason, scheduling a regular Natural Pest Control Service in your Sacramento property is a great way to keep your home free of unwanted pests.

How often should pest control service visit my home? 

There is no hard and fast rule to answer this question because a house with an ongoing pest infestation, especially if it involves “resilient pests” like termites and bed bugs, will most likely need more frequent pest control services than a home that only needs preventive measures and inspections. 

 

But as a general rule, residential buildings undergoing preventive natural pest control Sacramento need servicing every 3-4 months. This rule applies if the homes have no noticeable pest infestations. 

 

Meanwhile, homes with noticeable pest infestations typically need monthly treatments performed over a period of three to six months, depending on the severity of the problem, building size, location, type of pest, and weather conditions. 

 

Pest control service doesn’t only include preventive and ongoing treatments like baits and traps, but also regular inspection. The goal is to identify any sign of pest activity (or re-emergence) and treat the problem immediately to prevent property damage and health risks. 

 

Ongoing termite prevention 

If you live in a termite-infested region or you’ve had this problem in the past, Rocklin Pest Control, one of the leading pest control companies in Sacramento, recommends annual inspection. And if there is any sign of termites or any wood-destroying insects, no matter how minimal it appears, immediate fumigation or any suitable treatment is necessary to prevent property damage. 

 

Seasonal pests 

During the summer, these pests usually become more active and increase in number: mosquitoes, flies, ticks, and drywood termites. Depending on the type of pests and the extent of infestation, some homes require just a one-time treatment, while others need two or more visits to make sure that no “survivors” can result in a population boom. 

 

And in the cold season, rodents, spiders, and silverfish tend to seek warmth and shelter in residential buildings. Again, the number of treatments depends on the pest, location, and the extent of infestation.

It is not uncommon for pests to come out of their hiding places and run out in the open a few hours or even days following treatments. While this sight is not a pretty one, this is actually a sign that the chemicals are already working.
