Summary of the Do It Yourself Pest Control Video
– – Hello, this is Danielle with BUGCO Pest Control and today we’re talking about do it yourself pest control.
Do it yourself pest control falls under the category of what is easy isn’t always right and what is right isn’t always easy. Pest control doesn’t come with a once size fits all answer so when you think that you can just search the internet to find the do it yourself pest control project of the day. You may be right but that does not always make it right.
The number one issue with do it yourself pest control is mis-application of chemical, whether it is chemical you purchased online or something you picked up from one of the big box stores. There are a few more factors that play into pest control and we will cover some.
While do it yourself pest control sounds like a good idea, you can over complicate by self treating. Improper chemical usage can drive pests into hiding. They will find untreated areas of your home if you do not kill them on contact. They will multiply until, wham! The chemical you applied fades and they return. And you return to one of those mega stores to by more chemical.
For example roaches, flees, bedbugs, ants are all good examples of pests that go into hiding when you use a fogger. The fog does not reach the cracks and crevices that pests call home.
Another example is ants, certain ant species will break one colony into multiple colonies in your home if the wrong type of chemical is applied. Repellents and baits cannot be used inter-changeably for all ant types. So an identification is key to proper treatment.
