DIY Pest Control Provides Huge Savings for Homeowners
Date:4/8/2013

Norcross, GA (PRWEB) April 08, 2013

Spring is project time. From DIY home renovations and landscaping projects, even pest control becomes a big part of a homeowner’s to-do list. Unfortunately, pest control services can be pricey, ranging anywhere from $300 per year for a basic quarterly pest control service, to over $250 for just one ant or rodent job. But there is an alternative to hiring a pest control company.

One option homeowners can turn to is do-it-yourself pest control. Professional pest control products can save homeowners a significant amount of money, especially in today’s economy. They can also be just as safe to use as most other chemical household products, as long as customers follow the label.

The DIY pest control industry has grown significantly over the past several years mainly because of a new breed of Internet pest control stores that sell professional pest control products. These companies cater specifically to homeowners and businesses and often provide certified pest control experts on staff and a wealth of information to guide homeowners on how to treat their issues just like a professional, something people can’t get from a big-box store.

Mr. Gossling, co-founder of DoMyOwnPestControl.com, prides his company’s effort to inform its customers. “We strive to provide our customers with as much information as possible. From detailed step-by-step guides and how-to videos, to articles and product reviews, we want our customers to be safe and have success with our products while saving money.”

Gossling also notes how much homeowners will save by doing their own pest control rather than hiring a company. “Using the same products as professionals, you can do a complete ant control treatment for around $50, and some of our customers are doing a quarterly pest service on their own home for as low as $40 per year.”

Larger savings can be gained by replacing termite jobs and bed bug control with DIY alternatives. For example, a termite job can cost anywhere from $1000 to $1500 for a typical residential home. Bed bug control jobs can cost as high as $5000. Compare this with DIY termite control products for $300 and DIY bed bug control kits for around $100 - $250. In general, savings by going DIY can be as high as 70% or more.

“While we do recommend professional services to our customers in some cases, the truth is the majority of pest problems can be handled by a homeowner. Our customers are smart and if they read the label and follow directions, they have tremendous success getting rid of pests. Pest control is not rocket science. We’ve helped hundreds of thousands of customers successfully do their own pest control,” says Mr. Gossling.

Of course there can be risks with any DIY project, but the power of the Internet is providing homeowners and businesses with the knowledge and products to solve their own pest problems safely and effectively.
