Pest control is one of the leading issues that people deal with in their homes. Although commercial pesticides & chemicals are readily available at any supermarket or convenience store, some folks worry about the toxic effects of spraying-insect control in their apartments, campers, RV's, or houses. Many are also concerned about using pesticide-based supplies & equipment around food storage areas or near children and pets.
However, when you hire pest control experts to eliminate your problem, you don't have to worry about dangerous pesticides & chemicals or supplies & equipment. Spraying-insect control products are carefully developed by industry experts and selected by responsible pest control technicians for safe use around home dwellers and their pets. Instead of trying to figure out which of the dozens of pesticides & chemicals on the market today are effective and non-toxic to humans, you can let the spraying-insect control specialists explain the supplies & equipment they recommend and use, and why they do not pose a hazard to those living in the home, even though the products used will likely kill or repel a horde of insects of various types. The recommended industry pesticides & chemicals do not harm the environment when applied properly and disposed of according to pest control experts.
Common household pests
Insects of all types can invade any home in any location and cause problems for the residents. Crawling pests like roaches and ants lead the list of most common and detested vermin. Not only are they unsightly and intrusive, seeking out food storage and cooking areas, but they also can spread bacteria and disease in some cases, and they are hard to get rid of. Spraying-insect control products typically target pests like flies, mosquitos, bees, wasps, hornets, and other invasive species that get into a house and are hard to get rid of. Carpenter ants, carpenter bees, and termites are another source of concern, as they can literally damage a home's interior or exterior structure. A homeowner's use of commercial supplies & equipment often does little good, wasting time, money, and effort with the insects still causing problems on the property.
Resident efforts to remove pests
Most people try to use their own knowledge and skills to eliminate invading insects. However, many lack experience or accurate information about the nesting, breeding, or potentially harmful effects of various types of pests. They believe that any insect repellent will affect all types with the same effect, but that is not the case. They sometimes use the pesticides & chemicals incorrectly, failing to fully address the problem or causing harm to themselves or someone in the home, such as spraying the wrong locations or inadvertently getting the pesticide product on their hands or in their eyes.
Using recommended home remedies, they sprinkle things like cinnamon, lemon juice, vinegar, or boric acid in areas inhabited by the invaders. These substances are not particularly successful, and few people know exactly how to mix the products or set them out to repel or kill insects. Commercial products come with detailed warnings on the packaging about how to use the product safely, but not everyone reads the tiny print before using the product. Results can be sketchy at best or dismal at worst. If these home remedies do work, they typically require frequent applications to keep troublesome insects away.
Professional Pest Control
To effectively control home invading insects, you can save time and energy, and avoid frustration, by contacting pest control experts who know how to get rid of insects and keep them out of your home for good. They are familiar with cutting edge research on the best and safest home pesticides & chemicals to use around people and pets, particularly in areas of food storage and preparation, such as the kitchen or pantry. Pest exterminators not only know which products can be safely used, but they also are trained with the knowledge of how much to use and where to use it. Prep and clean-up are also handled expertly to avoid contaminating adjacent areas or exposing the family or its pets to substances that may be harmful if exposed accidentally.
Depending on the type of home invading insect being dealt with, treatment options will vary. In many cases, a one-time treatment in key areas of the home will suffice. Other types of insects require repeat treatments or periodic inspections to determine whether the nests have been completely eliminated. Some residents request periodic treatments every month or every six months as a preventative measure to keep current bugs, now eliminated, from returning or new species of bugs from arriving.
Pest control for indoor insects comes in numerous forms. Ant traps or roach traps are among the most common, but their success rate varies, depending on several factors such as location, residential conditions, colony size, feeding sources, etc. One type of contact trap enmeshes the walking insect in a type of adhesive so that it get stuck and cannot leave the trap. The traps are discarded, and the trapped bugs are gone. However, some insects avoid the traps for various reasons and remain at large, so it can be difficult to bring the entire population under control.
Another type of insect trap attracts pests to it, and when they feed there, their bodies pick up poison residue that is carried back to the nest. All insects in the nest are thus contaminated and die. Some pesticides & chemicals cause sterility in the bugs, so they cannot breed, thus causing the colony to die out quickly, as they reproduce very rapidly.
Similarly, substances in the form of a gel, gum, or powder are placed in strategic locations near where the bugs are likely nesting. These toxins kill insects that feed on them and may also carry it back to the nest before dying to pass it on to other bugs, thus causing the entire colony to die off. Spraying-insect control is also used for certain types of insects or their nesting locations, particularly flying insects and their hives. Although certain types of winged insects build nests inside basements, attics, or garages, for example, many or most establish hives in wooden outdoor structures like decks, porches, or sheds, as well as in trees or in the ground. These outdoor pests that nest near the house or around the lawn or trees are the best candidates for spraying-insect control due to their sometimes-high and hard to reach locations. Fortunately, sprayed pesticides & chemicals rarely affect property within human reach. If it does, the pest control technician will explain how to avoid contact with it or what to do if someone breathes in or touches the substance.
Supplies & equipment
As with the pesticide itself, supplies & equipment used for treatment in placing or adjusting insect areas are carefully handled and properly used. Because they may contain residue of pesticides & chemicals, the pest control expert will ensure that they do not contaminate household or outdoor surfaces that humans or pets frequently use. Any type of pesticide products, applicators, or tools are kept clean and out of contact with the home's areas adjacent to the treatment areas. Professional exterminators are trained or take special classes in how to handle anything associated with pest control, from hives they remove to the products they use, as well as the application tools.
Guarantees and warranties
Residential pesticides & chemicals generally come with a guarantee or warranty of their effectiveness as well as safety certifications for household use. Warnings about their use, limits, and potential hazardous qualities may also accompany these products if necessary. In addition, the workmanship and skill of the technician as well as company warranties are certified and explained to each customer as well as provided in print form for future reference. However, home residents may need to agree to certain terms and conditions, such as a full-scale treatment plan of four or more treatments per year to ensure the warranty remains in effect. Questions should be directed to the exterminating company's owner or manager.
Insects harboring in a home is concerning for many reasons. If you decide to try and handle the problem yourself, be preparing to hit a learning curve and possible need for a trial and error approach. Calling professional pest control experts is usually faster, safer, and less stressful than trying to handle it on your own. From tracking pests to their nesting areas, using safe and effective products, and experimenting to get desired results, the process of insect elimination can be frustrating and problematic. At the very least before tackling ants, roaches, or bees inside or outside of your home, contact professional insect exterminators to ask questions and obtain information that can save you time, money, and aggravation. If you want the problem taken care of promptly and efficiently, ask a pest control company to inspect the premises to find all insect sources and eliminate them permanently. For many, professional extermination is well worth the cost of having experts do the work.
