If you have a new home or even if you are moving into a new home, it is a good idea to hire a pest control professional. These pests can be difficult to get rid of on your own, so hiring a professional can save you time, effort, and money. Plus, if you do not want to hire a professional, there are many do-it-yourself methods you can use to get rid of some of these pests. Here are some of the most common pests that pest control companies will tend to deal with.
Rats and mice will always be a problem for apartment dwellers. Luckily, exterminators have many methods for getting rid of rats and mice. Pest exterminators can spray certain pesticides or liquid chemicals into their cages to get rid of rats and mice. The most popular method is using liquid pesticides. Other methods include trapping the rodents in their own traps or releasing them outside.
Bed bugs are another pest management issue. These insects, which are often found in hotels and other commercial buildings, can wreak havoc on your health as well as your finances. Although not all bed bug infestations are due to unclean sleeping quarters, many are as a result of dirty linens and clothes. By making sure your house is clean and keeping bedding, towels, upholstery, sheets, blankets, and other fabric choices clean, you will help prevent infestations.
Although they are not termites but rather an insect, cockroaches can be problematic, especially if you have a lot of them in your household. These pests are also sometimes referred to as “feral roaches” because of their adaptability to being outside, particularly if you have a problem with roaches. If you want to use DIY pest control methods, you should be sure to use baits and traps that are made especially for cockroaches and other insects. Baits and traps designed specifically for this purpose are sold at many different stores both online and in brick and mortar establishments.
Many people are confused about whether they should use a pesticide or use DIY pest control methods. Pesticides can be very harmful to people and pets and should only be used as an absolute last resort. The effects of pesticides can be much more severe than using a natural or organic method. However, if you must use a pesticide, you should look for those that have been proven effective by experts and state-licensed pest control technicians.
Keeping rodents out of your house can be a challenge, but it is a necessary one. Some exterminators prefer to use rats as a form of bait to get rid of roaches and ants. However, there are many factors that make rodents such a great option for rodent control. First of all, they don’t seem to have much energy and live in extremely small and confined areas. They also have the natural instinct to avoid poisons. Finally, they will be gone if you don’t provide them with food, shelter and water.
