Frequency of pest control service for most homes in the Springfield, MO area.

pest-control-treatmentTypically residential pest control is done on a quarterly basis (every 3 months) in the Springfield, MO area. The reason why I recommend for most homes to be treated this way is because it gives the professional an opportunity in each season to prevent the different pest pressures that are in the months ahead. We are currently in our ant prevention phase because of the problems Springfield and the surrounding areas typically see with odorous house ants. This means we are treating the perimeter with a product that gives us the best results for control and prevention of odorous house ants as well as educating our customers on what to look for and make suggestions on what could help reduce the pest pressure. This does not mean we are not doing anything for other pests it seemly means we know that for most homes ants is the major issue during these months. However, we do treat each home a little a different and some a lot different, some homes we focus on brown recluse spiders year round.
Over the years I have found that by performing a regular scheduled pest control service I am able to control and prevent most pest problems and keep it cost effective for most customers. However, it is not uncommon to make a return visit between regular services if problems arise, which is no cost for our regular customers. In fact we try to remind every customer of that at the beginning of each quarter. We explain it not to our customers that your not paying for one treatment rather 3 months of pest control service. We do offer other frequencies and have customers we service monthly and weekly whose situations may be out of the norm or the customer’s request.

The 2 of the most important factors when choosing a pest control provider should be 1: the pest professional who is actually servicing your account 2: the customer service you receive when you do need to contact your pest control provider. If you live in the Springfield, Ozark, or Nixa, MO; or a surrounding area and would like to ask any questions or schedule pest control service feel free to call (417) 413-4776 if you need any questions answered or to schedule service.
