A cluster of ants on a white background - keep pests away from your home with Arrow Exterminating Company in NY

Hiring the services of a professional when it comes to pest control is always a good idea. Pest control companies not only have the tools for the job but also the necessary knowledge to fulfill their end of the bargain. However, there are many pest control myths that need to be dispelled. Here are some things to know that will clear up those myths.

Myth 1: Pictures Are No Help

Although your pest control technician is knowledgeable about the pests that are most common in your area, that doesn’t mean that pictures won’t be helpful. If you can get a few shots of the insects, nests or other evidence of infestation, it can sometimes make it easier for the technician to identify the intruder and take care of the problem.

Myth 2: Pest Control Endangers Pets and Children

If you have pets and/or children, you should definitely notify your pest control company when you make the appointment. But no technician will begin treatment of your property without first asking about the presence of pets and children, as well as listing safety precautions for you and your family members. At no time are pets and children endangered by proper pest control when safety precautions are adhered to.

Myth 3: Bed Bugs are Impossible to Get Rid Of

Don’t burn the mattresses just yet! While it’s true that bed bugs are one of the most difficult pests to get rid of, it’s not impossible.

Myth 4: Ants Will Just Keep Coming Back
