Happy New Year! We made it to 2018, and we're thankful to say it has been another great year for Country Boy. We have been blessed to enjoy another year of serving our Polk County friends and neighbors with quality service, affordable prices, and a personal "small-town" touch. 2017 brought many changes, including a move to our new office location and welcoming lots of new customers, but one thing hasn't changed: our promise to give you the very best in pest control.
As we face the 2018 year ahead, you'll likely be looking at renewing memberships, contracts, etc. for various services, clubs, and activities. We know that this means it's time to review why you want/need the service, and we wanted to remind you, whether a current customer or not, why pest protection is so important for the health and safety of your home and family.
Pest control ensures that your home environment is free of insects, rodents, and other uninvited creatures all year long. Why is this important? Well, consider these facts...
- Insects, such as cockroaches, can carry harmful bacteria. This can be spread to surfaces throughout your home (including your food) and can make you and your family sick.
- Having spiders in your home can be very dangerous, especially those like the Black Widow or Brown Recluse whose bites are venomous. Even non-venomous spiders can deal a painful bite, and if you or someone you love is allergic, it can still have serious consequences.
- Fleas not only make your pets miserable, but they do not affect just cats and dogs. They can take over your home quickly, and you'll be feeling the effects right along with your furry friends. For your pets, flea infestation leads to intense scratching, hair loss, and even anemia from blood loss! For you, the bites are itchy, can be painful, and definitely lessen quality of life.
- Having rodents in your home is not only disgusting, but can also be dangerous. Rodent excrement carries dangerous bacteria which will be left throughout your home if you have a rat or mouse infestation. Additionally, rodents are notorious for chewing, and if they chew through a certain cord or power source, they can spark deadly fires.
If all of these reasons weren't convincing enough, remember that having insects in your home is also an annoyance. You'll quickly be reminded of this the next time a whole box of cookies or cereal are ruined by a horde of ants or roaches, or you don't even want to go in your garage because of the spiders (and their webs). It's not worth the risk or the headache of dealing with pests in your home if they can be easily prevented by having a routine pest control plan.
Could you do it yourself? Sure, but remember that many DIY methods and products are not strong enough to offer continued protection, which means you spend countless hours and dollars on re-doing pest control treatments just to keep your home somewhat protected. Why not just hand over the work to us, and let us take care of it for you? We offer affordable plans and customized, personal service. We are willing to work with you to make sure that your home and family are protected in the coming year.
Is there any better New Year's resolution than protecting the ones you love? Let us help you meet that goal in 2018!
