What is even worse, a lot of people won't even admit to themselves that there is a pest problem. They will convince themselves that what they saw or heard was something innocuous. They will not call the bug-busters in when they need them. That is the worst possible way of dealing with the problem. By putting off the inevitable, the problem invariably gets worse.
Left untreated, a pest problem can easily turn into a health problem or even a household repair problem. Sure, people may have a laugh at your expense when you have to have your home fumigated. A giant tent over the house is not something you can easily sweep under the carpet. The two days will pass quickly and people will forget. How is that worse than leaving the critters to munch on your house until it falls down around your ears? It is far better to contact the your Atlanta pest control company and get the whole thing over with.
It's funny, or it would be if it weren't so tragic. The bigger and nastier the pest, the longer people will want to put off having anything done about it. What they don't know is that a single mouse will contaminate ten times the food that it will eat.
It's hard enough for homeowners to face the unpleasant facts that they have a pest problem, it's far worse for tenants. Worried about losing their security deposit, they won't want to tell the landlord. They will be worried he will blame them for the infestation. He would far rather pay to have one apartment treated than see the problem get out of hand and have the whole building treated. That may be the smart thing to do anyway, but it is a lot easier to explain to the other tenants that the roach bombs are there to prevent an infestation than face an angry mob after they have been invaded by an army of creepy crawlies.
Sometimes, you just gotta stand up, man up, do whatever it takes to pick up that phone and call your local pest control company.
