Is Monthly Pest Control Necessary in Southwest Florida?

August 2nd, 2022


If you are wondering how often you should have a pest control specialist inspect your Ft. Myers home or business for unwanted pests and critters — read on! Here are a few tips to help you determine if monthly pest control is necessary for your Southwest Florida home or business.

Climate Considerations

Pest control isn’t necessary everywhere year-round. However, the beautiful weather throughout the year in Florida is enticing to humans and pests alike! In the spring, ants, wasps, and bees may buzz around your property. By summer, the termites, mosquitoes, and shrub pests have a hay day. By fall, the ants will be back, and the rodents will be looking to find somewhere cozy indoors to stay warm. In Florida’s warm winters, you may also see an uptick of roaches and bed bugs. To stay on top of pests year-round, monthly pest control might be necessary.

Previous Infestations

If you’ve had previous infestations, monthly pest control may be what you need to spot the signs of reinfestation quickly before it spirals out of control. The monthly pest control services you opt for may just be a quick inspection plus adding new treatments, as previous treatments may now be too old to be effective. This type of monthly pest control is quick and easy, but it can save you some huge headaches in the long run!

How Long Treatments Last

All pest control treatments are different. Outside your home or business, treatment may be effective for 2 to 3 months. However, inside your home or business, reapplication may be needed sooner. Alford Wildlife and Pest Management can advise you on how often reapplication of pest control treatments are needed based on the location of the treatment, severity of infestations you’ve had in the past, and other factors.

Pest Control Treatment Costs

Sometimes, monthly pest control can be more cost effective than yearly checkups. That’s because if you start to have an issue, and don’t get it checked on for another 6 months to a year, the problem could be out of control by the time your pest control specialist comes for an inspection. Dealing with a full-blown infestation is much more expensive than paying for regular inspections, whether you decide monthly or bi-monthly checkups are best for you.
