We Need Security – Carolina Pest Management

What is it that a person wants- or even more importantly needs- from a pest control company? One word- security. I doubt that anyone would disagree with that sentiment. Sure, we all might get caught up in the muckity muck of looking at the superficial, not caring to scratch through to the deeper foundation upon which a good pest management business is built. But we all know that fear is what drives us to call on the services of a company such as Carolina Pest Management. We fear what we don’t know, we fear what we do know…..we simply fear. We need security.

One finds comfort, one finds solace, in security- in knowing we are secure. If you know you have mice in your house, if you know you have ants in your kitchen, if you know you have bats in your attic, if you know you have pests you DO NOT WANT IN OR NEAR YOUR HOUSE, there is one way to feel better- to KNOW that those pests are being dispatched to a different place, whether that be Heaven or Hell…or if required by law, to a forest or field far away. As stated in the engraving at the base of Mr. Faber’s statue in the movie Animal House, “Knowledge is good.” It is an obvious but highly underrated quote. That said, for knowledge to truly be good and to give us comfort, that knowledge must be acted upon in a timely and prudent manner.

When you call Carolina Pest to solve a problem (or problems) plaguing your household, you are acting upon your knowledge that something is amiss. When you make that call you complete the circle that makes knowledge good. There is no sadder thing than knowledge wasted and there is no happier person than one on the good side of knowledge. When you call us, you are putting yourself on the good side of knowledge, where we all want to be.

Now, I understand that knowledge is all well and good until it runs into the buzz saw of human nature. I eat a few cookies on the couch occasionally- I’m a man after all! Do I clean the counter every time I eat? Of course not! Do I vacuum every other day? I think we know that I don’t! So yes, like most others, I make my home a little more inviting to cockroaches or other pests than I should. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t live like a pig in slop, I don’t walk around with dust flying off of me like Charlie Brown’s buddy Pig Pen- I’m just imperfect, as are all of God’s creatures.

So what do I, your humble writer, do? How do I regain my sense of security? First I clean up my food-mess! Then I vacuum! But what if my simple actions aren’t enough to turn off the pest spigot? What if there is some other force beyond my control that is calling unwanted visitors to my home? What if in spite of my best efforts to be good on my own, my house is still insecure? Then I call the pros, I call my friends at Carolina Pest Management. Whether it be troublesome pests such as cockroaches, mosquitoes, ants, fleas or ticks…whether it be unwanted wildlife, birds or bats in the belfry…whether it be structural pests such as the scariest of all for homeowners- TERMITES, we all want our homes made secure. If you are troubled by these pests, if you fear what you know – or if you fear what you don’t know- your life is lacking security. S0, when you are in that most unpleasant of states call Carolina Pest Management- we manage pests, and we give you back your priceless sense of security.
