Do-It-Yourself pest control is not always enough. According to the National Pest Management Association (NPMA), homeowners generally are unable to treat the root cause of their infestation when trying to treat a pest problem. Missy Henriksen, vice president of public affairs for the organization says, “The pests you see might be eliminated, but a larger infestation can continue to grow out of sight. These infestations can pose significant health risks to your family and cause damage to your property.”
According to NPMA, there are four types of infestations that should always be handled by a professional:
- Termites and other wood-boring insects including carpenter ants, carpenter bees, and powder post beetles
- Bed Bugs
- Stinging insects such as wasps, yellow jackets or fire ants and
- Reoccurring infestations, no matter the type of insect.
