Why Capture a Household Pest?

Why Capture a Household Pest?

When you see a six or eight legged critter in your house, a natural instinct is to swat it fast. It’s true that crushing a bug is one method of pest control, but only for the moment. It is rare that bugs travel alone. Seeing one bug inside usually indicates other bugs have access to your home. So why would you capture a household pest instead of squashing it? Seeing the actual pest tells us more than a reported description that it was “large” or “brown” or “ugly.”

It Helps Us Identify the Critter

There are many types of household pests, and to the average eye, many of them look similar. However, a professional pest control expert knows there are five common kinds of cockroaches, and even more variety among ants and flies. We know the names and weaknesses of destructive insects. When it is not possible or practical to capture a live bug, it is helpful for us to see a specimen of a dead bug you’ve found on the floor or in a closet, attic or garage.

We Can Apply Targeted Solutions

Different pests require different kinds of treatments. And it may be hard to believe, but some insects and spiders contribute to our environment (although we understand you don’t want them in your house!) The more we know about each nuisance, the better we can target solutions to get rid of them, with as little harm to helpful insects as is possible.
