People are starting to notice that Florida’s weather makes it an ideal place to live year-round, and because of that fact, the population of the state is growing year after year. That makes right now a great time to begin investing in properties in the state.
Everyone is a DIY (Do-It-Yourself) expert these days. In fact, there’s actually a channel called DIY that - along with several other television channels creates content almost exclusive on the subject. And while DIY may save a few bucks its not always the best idea. Pest control is one area in particular that doing it yourself may cause far more harm than good.
Undoubtedly you’ve heard these song lyrics before, and they still ring true, “breaking up is hard to do.” Whether you’re breaking up with a boyfriend or your termite service it's not uncommon to fear that you’re either doing the wrong thing or you’re going to hurt someone’s feelings. To begin, you should never worry about hurting the feelings of a service provider who isn’t giving you exactly the service that you are paying for. When it comes to keeping your home safe from termites you have the right to be very picky.
We don’t have to tell you how valuable pest control is. You’re here on this website, doing your research because you know the profound positive effect it can have on your quality of life. From eliminating those annoying sugar ants in your kitchen, to never having to lay an eye on a cockroach in your house again, pest control services add significantly to the lives and lifestyles of our clients.
Termites are an elusive pest. You rarely, if ever, actually see the bug itself. More often you’ll see hints and reminders that they are lurking somewhere behind your walls. If you’ve ever experienced a termite infestation in your home you may have noticed that there are times of the year that they are more active than others, leaving trails of tiny wings behind on your windowsill.
Thanks to modern technology, American homeowners can maintain comfortable temperatures all year long. In the summer, our houses are cool and breezy, and in the winter they're warm and cozy. You wouldn't change that for the world, and neither would the mice and rats that manage to find their way in when you least expect it. That’s right, those unwelcome rodents love the same things about your home that you do. So how are you supposed to keep them out?
If you were to google termite control you’d find a seemingly endless list of concoctions that supposedly put an end to the termites in your home. People recommended soaps, essential oils, even the little silica ball packets that come inside a brand new purse. While those do-it-yourself tips may have worked once or twice (thus beginning the lore that exists around them now), none of them are the ideal way to eradicate termites from your home. Just as in much of life, the cheapest and easiest solution is not generally the best or most effective one.
If you’re the type of customer who is loyal to companies and brands to a fault, it may surprise you to think of people changing pest control companies. Some families find something and stick with it, others prefer to keep trying until the land on exactly what they’re looking for. Ultimately, our clients keep coming back because they find just what they need with Holder.
We hate to be discouraging to anyone interested in owning a home in Florida. But, the truth is out, termites love to eat just about all of the common building materials that we use. And while that might sound like a good reason to shop elsewhere for a new home, you should know that with careful attention to the risks and a good relationship with your termite control team you can avoid any serious damage even if the termites come calling.
If you're a pet owner you know first hand how special a dog or cat (or fish or hamster) can be to a family. In many cases, people’s pets are considered members of their family. You also know that pets can complicate your household from time to time. Between finding dog and cat hair on every surface of your home, and muddy paw prints on your clean floors, our beloved pets can be quite the mess. But one of the biggest ways in which they mess up our tidy homes is by inviting unwanted pests inside.
