As far as your home or place of business is concerned, termites and carpenter ants can cause more destruction than you think. Once they get inside of your house, termites will start eating your wood floors and walls, damaging their structural integrity in the process. Although carpenter ants don’t eat wood, they will displace it as they create nests and pathways. In rare cases, the damage that these insects inflict can cause buildings to collapse. When pests are working to destroy the wood support structures of your home, the key to safeguarding yourself is to respond without hesitation.
Your property is not the only thing that is at risk when pests decide to overstay their welcome. Mosquitoes and other insects can carry and transmit a range of deadly diseases that you need to avoid. Rats and mice can get into your home and contaminate your food, but they will also chew through your wires, which can create a fire risk. When they spot pests in or near their property, some people overlook the problem, thinking that it will go away on its own. You must remember that neglecting the issue can give the rats, bugs or other pests the time that they need to spread, causing much more damage. As a leading pest management company, My Pest Pros has the tools and experience necessary to handle any invader that comes your way.

These Pests Are Active In Potomac Now
No matter how secure your home might be, pests can find their way inside. They may enter unnoticed when you open your door, find a tiny crack around a window or locate another "secret passage" between your yard and your home. You may also carry them inside in a grocery bag or package. Once they have successfully invaded, their population will increase dramatically in a very short period. Cockroaches, mice, spiders and many other home invaders can pose a serious risk to your health, contaminate your food or damage your home and belongings. Eliminating pests, however, is a job that should be left to the professionals to ensure the safety of your pets and family as well as to make sure that the pests are truly gone. My Pest Pros has the training and experience to eliminate any type of pest that may be troubling you.
No matter what type of business you operate, pests are not going to help you retain customers or protect your investment. Cockroaches, for example, can ruin a restaurant's reputation, but they can also play havoc with customer loyalty at a grocery store, clothing boutique or hair salon. Bedbugs, mice or cockroaches can cause bookings at your hotel to plummet. Nor is it just your customers who may want to escape your business — your employees may be unhappy and spend more time worrying about the pests than handling their tasks. Whatever kind of pest is troubling your business, the experts at My Pest Pros has the solution.
For many decades, pesticides were the first strategy attempted for pest control. Growing concerns over the effects that pesticides were having on the environment, however, led to the development of alternative methods that were ecologically friendly. When you combine risk of environmental damage with the fact that many pests have developed varying degrees of immunity to traditional pesticides, it is easy to see the benefits of "green" pest control. Organic treatments, sanitation modifications and biological controls can often be the safest, most effective solution. At My Pest Pros, we practice this type of integrated pest management, which includes ensuring that pests are identified accurately and employing pesticides only as a last resort.
