You find something buzzing, squeaking and eating around stuff in your kitchen. It moves around with more number of legs than you can count. This might prompt you to pick up a spray that contains potent poisons to eliminate the critter from your home. Pests are a real nuisance and sometimes can lead to various health problems. They tend to invade homes if you keep your home surgically clean and neat. But did you take a step back and think a bit – the sprays you tend to favour to kill these varmints may prove to toxic for your family members and pets? Also, did you know bug sprays and repellants remove visible signs of the infestation with tackling the root cause?

Tips to Make Pest Control Effective

It is not a difficult task to find and hire the right pest control company. All you need to ensure is the experience of the company along with the success rate. Also, it is important the company has a legal license to offer its services. Some other tips to make the pest management more effective are listed below.

  • Pesticide Used

When you hire a termite control professional, ask about the type of pesticide used by them. Preference should be given to non-chemical and non-toxic measures and products. An experienced and efficient professional would prefer to first identify the pest and then choose the pesticide. The choice of pesticide would decide the equipment the professional will use. Additionally, proper use of selected pesticide is equally important. For example, the professional should know the place where the bait should be placed during a rodent control programme. Use of pesticide in appropriate quality is another important factor to consider, as the inmates of the house should suffer from health issues due to excessive use.

  •  Safety Measures During the Procedure

Ask the professional about what safety measures that would be adopted during the procedure. This is important, as contact with pesticides can produce hazardous effects on health. Generally, professionals performing pest control will request you to remove fish tanks and bird cages to prevent harming these household pets. They also ensure the pesticide is not sprayed on surfaces that family members come in contact with frequently. In addition to indoor safety measures, it is also important to discuss the safety measures if the procedure has to be performed outside the house. Ensure you close all windows and doors before the process. Also, an outdoor pest management programme should be avoided on windy or rainy days. Most importantly, inform your neighbours in advance about the pest management programme. It may be prudent to discuss other precautionary measures before the technicians begin spraying.

  •  Monitoring

This is the most important aspect of a pest management program. Even the pest control company informs you of the safety measures, you should still monitor the process. However, make sure that you wear protective clothing and mask to prevent adverse reactions.  Monitoring ensures no spot is missed and also lets you check for gaps and crevices that allow pests to enter your home or property.

Methods to Control Pests

There are numerous methods and techniques used by companies dealing in pest control to provide effective results. Some of them include:

  • Surface Spreading

This is the simplest of all insecticide application techniques. A paintbrush is used to apply the selected insecticide over the affected area. The surface spreading technique helps prevent the occurrence of insects that enter the house through cracks or gaps in walls. This technique is also effective in preventing the occurrence of termites or white ants behind cupboards or in joints furniture.

  • Surface Spraying

In this technique, insecticides are sprayed on floors, outside walls, inside cupboards, between skirting boards, under benches, around the yard and every corner of the house you can think of. This technique involves the use of liquid insecticide paint or spray. Doing this makes it easier for the substance to spread evenly on the surface. A pressurised sprayer is the key equipment when using this pest eradication method.

  • Baits

This specific technique works best in cases of rodents. These baits can be used in the form of solid blocks or pellets. A lockable bait box is the ideal way to place these baits. This prevents any type of accident with pets and children. Just ensure you place the bait box where rats and mice are expected to come searching for food. Examples include cabinets and cupboards. Although effective, this is an unsafe and tricky method to eliminate rodents from your home. Therefore, it is best to opt for a professional pest control program to stay safe.

Precautions

Although a dedicated insect control programme is an effective way to get rid of pests and insects, it is important to keep safety in mind. Check with a reputed pest control company about the use of pesticide. Make sure organic and eco-friendly insecticides and pesticides are used. Inorganic pesticides should be the last resort, when the infestation is extreme and organic methods prove to be ineffective.

A pest control programme would surely get rid of all types of insects and critters from your home. It is, however, important to maintain proper hygiene standards after the procedure to prevent re-infestation. In addition to maintaining hygiene and cleanliness, keep an eye out for more pests. Call the service provider as soon as you notice the problem to prevent the infestation from worsening.
