One of the biggest reasons families go the DIY route when it comes to pest control is the fact that they can save money. While this may seem like an acceptable solution, parents should definitely consider getting someone else to solve their pest issues.
Depending on what kind and how many pests you have, hiring a licensed pesticide professional should be a no-brainer if you have children.
While you may walk with shoes on and sit on a blanket when you spend time on your lawn, your children are most likely running free and barefoot. They trip and fall into the grass, roll in it, or grab it by handfuls to play with, so they touch it more than you do. Their skin is also more sensitive to what is on your lawn than you are. When you spray your lawn for pests, you may be resolving the pest problem but you’re creating a new hazard for your kids.
A licensed, qualified pest control company will cater their services to your needs, making sure to prioritize safety if you have children. They will also only deal with the key problem, instead of haphazardly showering every square inch of your lawn with dangerous chemicals.
If you want to be sure the professional you are using is cautious, look at their reviews on Google, Yelp, and their reputation in the community. When you interview your licensed pesticide professional, ask them what ways they can minimize the risk to your children. You don’t have to sacrifice safety for a pest-free yard.
