There’s no doubt about it, pests have the upper hand when it comes to sheer numbers. There are more insects than people, and they are only part of the pest problem. Pests compete with humans for resources and thus could be called our competitors.

Friend or Foe?

One interesting dichotomy is that pests can be harmful in one setting, but beneficial in others. Take a look at spiders. Spiders eat an astronomical amount of insects a year, serving an important role in our fight against pests. Yet, they are seen as pests since a few spiders harbor powerful enough venom to kill a human — and do so every year. Yet, is that truly the spider’s fault?

The above dilemma is part of the reason Earthwise Pest Management in Roseville offers pest control services using the IPM process. Integrated pest management believes in solving the root cause of the pest problem, not just blanket killing every pest that crosses your path. We form a comprehensive strategy for your pest control problem that is customized to your unique home or business.

We follow up on our pest control solution until we believe the pests are gone.

However, battling billions of pests is an on-going job, which is why we offer preventive pest control maintenance to homeowners and business owners in order to prevent pests from resettling. Below, we’ll go over the importance of residential and commercial pest control services in Roseville and why you should call us today when you have a pest infestation problem. Contact us today!

THE IMPORTANCE OF PEST CONTROL IN ROSEVILLE

Keep your family and customers safe

Humans have made huge strides in our fight against diseases carried by pests. We now have vaccines against malaria, typhoid fever, and yellow fever. Smallpox has been virtually eliminated as has polio. Most of this has to do with the development of sanitation and understanding how germs work. However, a good many diseases are carried by pests, such as rodents, cockroaches, and mosquitoes. When you invest in residential or commercial pest control services with Earthwise Pest Management in Roseville, you are investing in your family and customers’ health.

Prevent damage to property and belongings

When pests invade our homes and businesses, they will inevitably leave something behind. From feces to their dead bodies, pests can do an incredible amount of damage and be a danger to our lives. Rodents can chew through wiring, starting electrical fires. Termites, if left unchecked, can completely destroy a home. Moths can eat our clothes. Carpet beetles and silverfish love to eat our belongings, including books and linens.

Keep our food safe

Besides diseases, humans can also get sick from pathogens that insects carry. While most of these are not life-threatening, no one likes to lose days of their lives and lost productivity by being stuck in bed, feeling like they’d rather die than live. Pests can also harm our food supply by eating our crops that were meant for us. Swarms of locusts can devour whole fields, rodents can eat the food in our pantries, and aphids can ruin our backyard vegetable gardens.

Cut down on allergies

Many people are allergic to pests. Cockroaches and stinging insects can trigger asthma and allergies. Many people are allergic to bee stings, which can cause severe allergic reactions, and even death in extreme instances. Dead pests, their skin cells, droppings, and saliva all contribute to allergens in the air, which can make asthma worse, especially in children. When bitten by mosquitoes, fleas, and some flies, pain, itchiness, redness, and minor swelling can develop in the area around the bite. By investing in top-notch residential and commercial pest control services in Roseville, you’ll be helping to diminish allergy symptoms in your family and in your customers.

Save money

By investing in preventive pest control services for your home or business with Earthwise Pest Management, you’ll be saving yourself money in the long run. DIY pest control solutions often rely on expensive pesticides that can harm the environment. Most likely, you don’t have the proper knowledge on your pest to use these effectively, so you are having to keep buying these pesticides to control your pest problem. Instead, we can help you solve your pest problem for good with our integrated pest management solutions.

Furthermore, pests can do a lot of damage in a very short amount of time. If you prolong your pest infestation by attempting to DIY your pest control services, you’ll be losing more in lost food stores, damage to your buildings, and even lost employee productivity if allergies flare. Let the experts at Earthwise Pest Management handle your pest problem in Roseville.

Lead a contented life

Insects, by their nature, can creep us out. Some people have real phobias to pests, such as a fear of spiders or insects. This can give people anxiety when they see these pests, especially when they invade our personal space by being in our homes and workplaces. By investing in pest control with Earthwise Pest Management, you’ll keep your Roseville home or business stress-free and worry-free.

Would you really want to live in a world without insects?

Most people only give a cursory thought to insects. You notice flies when they get in your home and buzz around, distracting you from watching your favorite Netflix show. You notice ants when they crawl through your kitchen, actually doing you a favor by picking up that chip you dropped. You notice a mouse when it emerges from under your bathroom sink, and a spider when it decides to dangle from its web right in front of your eyes. By and large, insects lead their lives, and we lead ours, as do rodents and spiders. Most of us, if asked, would probably say they could live in a world without mosquitoes biting, ticks sucking, bed bugs in our bed, bees stinging us, or cockroaches on our counters.

However, could you live in a world without the beauty of a monarch butterfly, the iridescent glow of a dragonfly’s wings, a ladybug in your garden, the praying mantis on a leaf, the silk moth that produces silk, the Japanese Jewel Beetle, the Orchid Bee, or the Cecropia Moth caterpillar? Consider this fact: the world would go on without humans; the world would most likely end without insects who are the world’s decomposers, food source for thousands of animals, and the pollinators of our crops. So would you really want to live in a world without insects?

THE EARTHWISE PEST MANAGEMENT DIFFERENCE IN ROSEVILLE

Fighting pests can be an uphill battle. Sure, pest control solutions implemented by Earthwise Pest Management in your home or business can eradicate your pests. However, due to the sheer number of ants, termites, stinging insects, bed bugs, cockroaches, mosquitoes, and dozens of other pests, eliminating them from your life completely is an impossible task. That’s why investing in preventive pest control services is necessary, especially if you own a business that is client-facing, such as a restaurant, car dealership, insurance office, coffee shop, pastry shop, and the like.
