I’ve been a pest control agent for 12 years, and I’ve heard everything imaginable on the subject of termites, bed bugs, roaches, rodents, fleas, and spiders. I guess that you have some kind of problem with one or more of them. It doesn’t make you a bad person – it just makes you a responsible person.
If you want to find out how you can effectively control these pests yourself, and save yourself some money as well, then this is the right place to start at. In this article, you’ll learn some common misconceptions about pest control and what you can do to get rid of termites, bed bugs, and mice while keeping cockroaches away. I hope that by the time you’re done reading this, you’ll have a better understanding of the topic and be better prepared to make the right decision about pest control in your home or your neighbourhood.
The first misconception that people have about pest control is that termites are an evil pest. Nothing could be further from the truth. They’re not only harmless but they help make our food products more nutritious. This is especially true now that more attention is being paid to environmental factors.
Many people also have the misconception that pest control is all about killing pests. This is completely untrue. Pest control doesn’t have to involve spraying pesticides and using poison bait. A lot of the methods that I use work by simply controlling the environment in which the pest lives. For example, when I come upon termites in a house, I treat the entire area with a bed bug spray to repel them and prevent them from coming back. I may also use a boric acid treatment where I mix it with water and place that in the holes or crevices where the termites seem to frequent the most.
When it comes to dealing with pests such as ants and bed bugs, there’s no reason to resort to poison. Instead of poisoning a bedbug, for example, I try to avoid them by avoiding places that they tend to congregate. If I can avoid a bed bug bite, I usually do so because I figure that it’s much safer to not let them get near me than it is to allow one to. I must do this for a couple of reasons.
The first of these reasons relate to the health aspects of pest control. Ants and termites can carry diseases, which is especially worrisome if you have small children or pets in your household. By exterminating these pests before they take over your home and cause you unwanted medical problems, you can limit the suffering of those who visit you and your family. It’s also important to note that pest exterminators cannot prevent termites from coming, but when they do they often help in getting them rid of your home as soon as possible.
