4 Pest Control Myths Dispelled
As professional pest control experts, we’ve come to realize that many homeowners have the wrong idea about pest control. While we understand many businesses and homeowners try to take pest control into their own hands by setting different baits and traps to attract and kill the pests. We here at Best Home and Property in Myrtle Beach don’t want you to make bad pest control choices! That’s why we’ve debunked some of the most common pest control myths below.
Myth #1 – “If I can’t see the pest, they aren’t there!”
Not exactly. Many pests can do unseen damage without homeowners realizing it! The only way to be sure your home is completely pest-free is with routine pest control.
Myth #2 – “Cheese is the best rodent bait!”
While many may think that this is true because of a popular cartoon, rodents don’t really like cheese. It’s been said that many mice and other rodents enjoy peanut butter instead! Of course, if that doesn’t seem to do the trick, our team is more than happy to help.
Myth #3 – “My cats will keep the pests out of my home.”
As much as we may think our domestic cats can be fierce predators when it comes to pests, they aren’t much help. While your cats may chase rodents and insects around the house, it’s best not to solely rely on them for your pest control.
Myth #4 – “Concrete & brick homes are termite-proof!”
While it’s true that termites don’t eat bricks or concrete, that doesn’t mean they aren’t a potential threat! The inside of concrete and brick homes are made of wood, which can be a treat for termites. Termites and other pests can crawl through cracks in the foundation and make their way into the home. It’s best to keep an eye on cracks and keep up with routine pest control to limit your chances of having a pest problem!
