Pests have been a subject of concern for Homeowners and businesses in India. One pest interception at home is enough to give you sleepless nights. Homeowners always want to learn to maintain a balance between spending the least possible price and successfully removing bug infestations from their property. 


Frequency of Pest Control Treatment

Whatever information we put across here is based on our field experience as a pest control operator in India for the last 30 years. It has been observed at times that customers decide upon frequency themselves, which is a sheer mismatch between what they are getting and what is required. Some clients in India get their property pest controlled once a year, that too when the pest problem becomes unbearable. On the other hand, some homeowners get their property treated too frequently, which proves the application of pesticides.

While some bugs require more frequent treatments, other bugs can be controlled with just one or two applications at the most. It also depends upon the surroundings of your vicinity and how conducive your property is to a particular pest. 

Secondly, different Pest control products require different treatment intervals as there is a difference in their residual effect and different acceptability by an insect. As far as the exterior of the house is concerned, one service every 3-4 months is a good idea as it works as a preventive treatment option, and it does not let pest challenges crop up in the first place. 

The frequency of Pest Control services also depends on the location of your property and the pest population around your surroundings. We always insist homeowners get their property treated at least once every four months. Shorter or longer intervals between two services can be recommended, according to the gravity of the infestation or precise situation.

Though each infestation is unique, the most optimum pest control service frequency would be Quarterly (every three months) as this is sufficient to keep common household pests away like cockroaches, spiders, ants and house crickets. If a pest control operator suggests any more frequent services, then think about another company. A monthly service plan is probably too much of a treatment, and you’re paying for unnecessary services. 


Quarterly pest control service plans

It is a fact that usually pesticides remain effective up to three months after they have been applied. With a quarterly service plan, a pest control technician can re-apply the treatment so your house always has a continuous ongoing protection barrier against pests. After the first 2-3 services on the quarterly plan, the pest nuisance in your home starts subsiding, and then the pest controller can decide upon a more preventive approach. After a stage, he can opt to treat the interior of your house less frequently, and a pest infestation can be controlled from the outside area of your property.

If you notice any bug activity on your property between two services, a technician can always come to control the situation at no extra cost. In most cases, a Quarterly service contract lets you call the company whenever it is required.
