We train and certify all our technicians to the highest standard.  So when you are in need of a pest management professional, choosing Pestcheck will give you the peace of mind your pest problem will be handled safely and effectively.

Why Pest Control is Important?

Can you imagine what the world would be like if disease carrying bugs like mosquitos, bed bugs, or ticks which were not curbed by pest control?  Equally important, what about the bubonic plague? The fleas on rats transmitted the plague to humans which killed much of Europe.

What Happens Because of Pest Control?

  • Your house is still standing because termites haven’t eaten it.
  • You don’t have to stress so much about bed bugs whenever you go to a hotel or movie.
  • Your food at a restaurant hasn’t been contaminated by rats, cockroaches, or other disease-carrying bugs.

On the flip side, pretend you’re a restaurant owner, and a customer sees a cockroach on the table—your business could really suffer should the news spread to other customers and they stop coming to your restaurant.

What about being allergic to bites and stings?  Of course, pest control cuts down on the risk of those unfriendly encounters with bugs like wasps and fire ants.

Finally, your vegetable and flower gardens are a lot healthier without aphids and spider mites.

Lots of things we take for granted are made possible or regularly prevented by the men and women of pest control. They make sure the job gets done correctly and safely. Let’s take a minute to thank a pest control professional on World Pest Day!
