Pest Control

A Bug’s Life

Found yourself with a few unwanted visitors? No problem - the right pest controller can help you to get rid of insects and rodents making themselves at home. Pests can cause a great deal of trouble, so getting them removed quickly is vital. With the right pest controller, you can be sure that your home is free of any little critters that choose to take up residence among you and your family. Bark gives you access to top-notch pest control professionals, so freeing your home of pests is as easy as possible.

How much does a Pest Control professional cost?

You could have any manner of pests living within your home – and as you may expect, the cost for different pest control services varies depending on the type and severity of infestation.

Some of the most common pests you will find are mice and rats. Alongside bringing disease and other parasites into your home, rodents can chew through furniture and fittings, and so are a particularly expensive problem.

Fleas can cause a lot of problems, especially with your pets. If a population of fleas get out of control, removing them can be extremely difficult. The reason for this is that many fleas take residence in corners and crannies around the house.

Bed bugs, one of the most problematic pests to get rid of, thrive by living off human body heat and CO2, before feeding on human blood.

Bees and wasps can be particularly dangerous, as they can cause direct damage with their ability to sting. Both bees and wasps can be very intimidating in a swarm – however, depending on which of these you have in your home, you will want to tackle them differently. For example, getting hold of a beekeeper can help mitigate harm to bees while removing them from the property.

The above rates are ballpark figures. If you have a more serious infestation that requires multiple treatments, prices will be higher. It’s best to get multiple quotes from different pest control professionals to see how they can best deal with your pest problem.

What should I look for when hiring a Pest Controller?

So what is good to look for in a pest controller? While Bark makes it simple to compare professionals and get quotes, you should also think about a few things that you want out of your contractor before you hire anyone.

Some questions you could ask are:

  • Do you have a website/references? – Proof of work quality
  • Are they certified? - Are they trained under a trade association
  • How long have they been practising?
  • How will they get rid of pests? - Tools/chemicals used
  • Are they specialised for certain pests?

These are good starting points to think of when making your final decision on a pest controller specialist.

Do I need to hire a Pest Control professional?

It may be the case that you have attempted to get rid of pests yourself. However, doing it in the right way can be very tricky. Furthermore, while you might be able to get pests out of your home temporarily, keeping them away for good is a lot harder. It’s better to tackle a pest control problem head-on, in the right way, before it gets any worse. The longer you wait, the more you end up paying – whether it is in money or your time.

The biggest draw of using a pest control service is keeping diseases out. Many pests that choose to inhabit homes carry diseases that can be passed on to other animals - or even yourself. This can have dire effects on your health and can cause unwanted symptoms or even worsen health conditions that already exist.

Pests like cockroaches and fleas are able to transmit diseases, and can even cause conditions that you may not even associate with insects, such as asthma. They also bring in plenty of bacteria, causing an unclean living environment.

The chemicals required to get rid of pests can also be quite strong, and so trying to eliminate them yourself can put you and your family at risk if you don’t know what you’re doing. Getting rid of pests correctly will also help to keep allergies at bay, while preventing physical symptoms such as itching.

Also worth noting are the psychological effects of having an infestation. If you know that you have these types of insects in your home, it can make it difficult to get a good night’s sleep. Preserving both your mental and physical health is important and so removing these pests with an experienced pest removal professional is the best way forward.

It can take up to six weeks for a pest control treatment to fully rid your home of pests. Although the pest control treatment is applied on the day, it can take several weeks for the effects of the treatment to be seen. Don’t be alarmed if you still see some pests for a few days or even weeks after the treatment.

Depending on the treatment that is used, you may need to stay out of your home after the pest control treatment has been applied. This can range from 2 hours up to 24 hours. You’ll need to discuss this with your pest control specialist who will be able to advise when you can return to your home.

Most pest control treatments are safe for dogs and cats. However, you will need to wait for the treated areas to fully dry before your furry friend is able to return to their home to ensure their safety. You may need to be more careful if you have rodents or insects as pets. You should make your pest control specialist aware of any pets that you have in the house so that they can tailor the treatment accordingly.
