Creepy crawlers are no strangers to properties in Michigan, and they always seem to somehow sneak indoors. While perimeter pest control is the most effective method for preventing insects from invading your inside living space, doing it yourself is risky and may prove to be ineffective. You could miss a spot if you spray an insecticide yourself, leaving an opportunity for insects to come in anyway. Not only that, but you could use a product that is not very effective and it might not stop the bugs from getting inside. What's more, even effective products will wear off over time, so you'll have to remember to reapply the treatments throughout the year to ensure your property is always protected. Instead of wasting time and money trying to apply treatments yourself, make your life easier and hire professionals instead.

1. You could miss a spot when spraying perimeter pest control treatments yourself.

Perimeter pest control treatments create a defensive barrier around your property, keeping pests outside where they belong. However, if there's a hole in the defense, they'll find it and slip through. If you try to apply perimeter pest control treatments yourself, you may not know every area to spray and could potentially miss a spot, creating this hole. As a result, you'll still have a bug problem and would have wasted time and money. Fortunately, professionals will know exactly where to spray to ensure the treatments are effective and there are no weak spots in the defensive barrier.

2. You might end up using a product that is not effective.

Another downside to DIY perimeter pest control treatments is having to reapply them multiple times throughout the year; you will have to remember to keep reapplying the treatments as their effectiveness wears off over time. With an already busy schedule, you could miss a treatment and present an opportunity for pests to invade your indoor living space. However, you can make your life easier by hiring pros! Once you sign up, you won't have to worry about anything, as they'll put you on their rotation and come back to reapply their treatment before the previous one wears off.
