Learn more about how the COVID-19 crisis is affecting pest control services.

As COVID-19 keeps the entire country on high alert, we find ourselves in this odd position where businesses and services have been split into two camps – the essential and the non-essential. Given the fact pest control services are needed to protect a person’s property and health, the team of highly trained professionals at McDonald Pest Control fall into the essential category.

What this means for home and business owners is that we are fully open for business and will continue to provide pest control in Clearwater throughout this crisis. Let’s take a look at some of the pest control solutions you can count on throughout this outbreak and beyond.

No-Contact Pest Control Solutions

Anyone who has ever seen an exterminator knows we’re already accustomed to using protective gear while we rid a home or business of pests. In addition, we practice social distancing by avoiding contact with individuals inside a home or business so everyone remain safe. In the event we need to get inside, we will make arrangements so you feel absolutely comfortable and safe.

Reliable Lawn Treatment

Unfortunately, pests won’t be practicing social distancing, which means they will continue to invade your property. In fact, since there aren’t so many people walking and driving around, they may feel more emboldened to venture outside of their comfort zone, so to speak. Since your front yard and backyard are often a pest’s primary entry point, a lawn treatment can act as an effective first line of defense.

Protects Your Family from Disease

The good news is you don’t have to worry about any pests carrying the coronavirus. However, there are several other diseases that different types of pests may carry such as hantavirus, encephalitis, West Nile virus, Lyme disease, and others. This, is in addition to the normal filth and dirt that they often bring inside your home or business. By eliminating pests and helping you prevent future infestations, our pest control services will help you stay safe.

Eliminates Rodent Contamination

Rodents are devastating to the world’s food supply and this includes those that get inside your property and start chewing through bags and boxes. Since so many families have stocked up on food because of the ongoing pandemic, it’s more important than ever that your supply remains intact and safe to eat. Our pest control solutions include rodent control to eliminate these pests quickly so that will be one less stress for you and your loved ones.

Prevents Termite Infestations

Now that the weather has begun to warm up a bit, termites will start being more active. Since many homeowners and business owners are understandably preoccupied at the moment, a termite infestation may occur while you’re focused on other things. Left unchecked, this could lead to serious and costly repair needs. Our team can do a quick check of your home to determine whether or not termites are a problem. We will then conduct a termite treatment and prevention protocol based on what we find.

Bed Bug Heat Treatment

Since fewer people are moving around on a regular basis and vacations have been placed on hold, you may think that bed bug services are no longer needed. On the contrary, while less travel will prevent some infestations, this will continue to be a problem for certain people. If you suspect that you have some of these bloodsuckers in your home, the experts at McDonald Pest Control will check it out and then initiate a bed bug heat treatment if necessary.
