How Much Does a Dollar Cost?
As is the case with anything else in our world, you pay more for a certain item because of its supposed, higher quality. The reason a person chooses to buy a thousand-dollar television versus its cheaper, say four-hundred-dollar, counterpart is because of its perceived degree of excellence. This flawed, finite method of thought prohibits many from ever venturing out of their comfort zones. Yes, sometimes the more expensive option is the better option; however, this is not always the case. A person might go their entire life eating name-brand chips versus store-brand chips without ever realizing that more likely than not, the chips taste the same. But if one is okay with spending just a little extra to obtain that high-quality item – but on an item that is rather materialistic and expendable – why not be okay with spending a little extra on a service that is guaranteed to protect you, your family, and your environment?
When a situation occurs that requires a pest-control solution, a client’s foremost concern is who can they call. Who can the client fully rely on to take control of the matter at hand? And in any scenario, the client owns a plethora of options. The most common decisions made are to take care of the issue themselves or go with the cheapest option and hope for the best. However, if the problem persists, a professional is usually called upon. When it comes to selecting a service, even when it isn’t pest control, the most common mistake is to think “cheap”. The age-old adage “you get what you pay for” couldn’t be more applicable in pest management situations. When you decide to go the cheapest route possible, you only think short-term. Whether your vehicle suffers a flat tire, your home’s flooring is ruined due to a flood, or even just needing your lawn to be mowed – when it comes to being serviced, you want nothing else but the right choice for you. But thinking “right” means you’re not only thinking about what option is the most financially viable, it means you’re also thinking about the long-term, and how to keep yourself and your immediate environment protected.
With over two-hundred pest control companies operating in the metroplex, choosing the wrong pest-control company happens often. If you want the most reliable service and/or are health conscious, making the wrong choice can be detrimental. Companies usually deliver false promises and lock you into a contract that they make extremely difficult for you to leave. Usually you must pay to leave even if you are not satisfied. On the other end of the spectrum, choosing the wrong pest control company can be detrimental if you care about the environment around you.
The key issue with pest control is the use of pesticides. According to the Department of Health of Australia, a pesticide is defined as a “substance used to kill feral animals, insects, fungi or plants”. Thousands of different pesticides are used today in homes, businesses, gardens, farms, and many places alike. The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection states, “The use of modern synthetic pesticides started during World War II. The effectiveness of these pesticides dramatically improved the ability to kill pests, and because the applications seemed unlimited and the hazards minimal, pest control came to follow a distinct pattern: sole reliance on chemicals, preventive or “calendar” spraying, application at the first sign of pests without establishing injury levels, little or no evaluation of treatments, and no system-wide perspective.”
Carelessly following such a pattern can lead to many key issues arising. For starters, when used incorrectly, all pesticides have the potential to be harmful to humans, pets, and the environment. They can cause serious injury – and even death – to the pesticide operator, the residents of a home, or the inhabitants of a building. In a systematic review done by the College of Family Physicians of Canada, studies on non-Hodgkin lymphoma and leukemia found “positive associations with pesticide exposure.” In the same review, strong evidence links pesticide exposure to birth defects, fetal death, and altered fetal growth. Pesticides can also directly affect non-target animals – meaning if you were trying to kill ants in a garden, you could also kill other, harmless insects who live in the same ecosystem.
