Common Pest Control Methods that don’t Work
If you’re facing a rodent or pest infestation issue in your home or business you’ll want to act immediately in order to quickly remove these unwanted bugs. Fast action usually requires a trip to the store in search of traps, baits, sprays and a plethora of other DIY pest control methods. While some of these can be temporarily effective, often times they are dangerous and can leave you in a worse situation than dealing with the unwelcome guests in your home or business. It is best to always call a professional pest control & extermination company at the first sign of an unwanted intruder. We’ve highlighted the most common DIY pest control methods that simply do not work against eliminating the problem.
3 DIY Pest Control Methods that don’t work
Setting off bug bombs: An age-old method for a variety of pest control problems, bug bombs are outdated and, quite frankly, extremely dangerous to your health and that of your pets & family. The sprays and methods used by a professional extermination company are eco-friendly, much more effective and safe to use with children, dogs & cats in the household.
Using bait & pesticides (but nothing else): While bait will lure the pests from hiding and the pesticides will destroy them, if you don’t find & resolve the root of the problem you will be spending money on these pest control methods for the rest of your life. There are many reasons pests are attracted to your home, these issues should be addressed to keep your space free of pests.
Thinking the problem will resolve itself: If you’ve been consistently dealing with the same pest or rodent issue for months on end and none of your DIY pest control methods are working you may be dealing with a much larger problem that needs to be resolved by a professional. Ignoring a pest control problem can not only lead to an infestation, but also severe damage to your home and can also negatively affect your health. The longer you wait, the more serious the issue will become.
