Benefits of Exterior Pest Control and When Spraying Inside is a Must

There is a direct connection between exterior pest control and the need for interior spraying to control pests. When exterior pest control methods are used regularly, those pests never have a chance to penetrate to the interior of your home, so there is never really a need for interior spraying. This article will describe why exterior pest control can be advantageous to you, as well as those scenarios when it might become necessary to spray your interior to control pests.

Why exterior pest control is so beneficial

If you really want the peace of mind that comes from knowing there will be no insect invasion of your home this year, you have to implement a program of good exterior pest control. This should probably be done by a knowledgeable professional, because that kind of person will be someone who understands the various breeding stages of the most common insects, and knows when to spray them in order to prevent hatching of large numbers.

Many of the most common insects like spiders, beetles, and ants can be managed very effectively through seasonal spraying, and a professional will know where those critters live and which chemicals to use when spraying them. Other classifications of pests such as roaches, carpenter ants, termites, and bedbugs, are not manageable through the same kind of spraying methods, but can be controlled by other kinds of sprays, which will stop them in their tracks.

The key to exterior pest-control is in identifying which kinds of pests are prevalent in the local area, and knowing which types of sprays are the most effective in killing off those populations, so they can’t penetrate to the interior of your home.

When interior spraying becomes necessary

There are a few reasons why you might have to spray the interior of your home in order to manage a pest infestation. Even if you have initiated exterior pest control methods, you might already have an infestation in your household which needs to be eliminated. Once you kill off the population living inside your home, you shouldn’t be bothered with them again, because your exterior spraying will prevent a second invasion.

Any kind of currently active infestation will have to be handled by interior spraying, because not only will the current population of pests not diminish by itself, but more than likely their numbers will increase over time. Another very common reason for having to spray your interior, is in the case where you share at least one wall with another apartment or condo.

That means you can inherit whatever infestation is troubling another occupant, and all those pests can transfer right over into your dwelling as well. The good news about spraying your interior is that you should only have to do it once, assuming that you have begun a program of exterior pest control. Once you clear out any current infestation inside your home, regular spraying on the exterior should manage all future pests, and keep them out of your household.
