A few ants or flies are probably not going to need a visit from the exterminator, but for more persistent pests you really need a professional to inspect and determine the best plan for treatment. An experienced exterminator has the knowledge needed to quickly and effectively identify and treat your pest problem.

They use professional grade products which are more effective in treating larger infestations than their DIY counterparts. Although the initial expenditure is higher you will fix the problem in one go rather than repeat treatments. Because many pests present serious health and property risks, larger pest infestation should be left to the professionals to treat, sooner rather than later.
