The trend in residential pest control has moved away from monthly service and toward service on a less frequent basis. The reasons for this include refined, longer-lasting products and a more integrated approach to pest management. Pest control professionals, such as Monitor Pest Control, have implemented a program using a variety of materials, including baits. By targeting areas where pests live and breed, instead of the old practice of just spraying baseboards, we have improved the quality and effectiveness of the service greatly. Advising customers on conditions that exist that promote insect activity at their home or business and how to eliminate these conditions, is something that makes monthly spraying unnecessary in most cases. Monitor Pest Control recommends either a bi-monthly or quarterly service for most homes depending on certain factors such as current insect activity and customer availability.
