If a pest infestation occurs, many home and business owners may attempt DIY pest control to dodge waiting times or keep costs down. However, DIY pest control can be hazardous and costly, with no guarantee that DIY pest treatments will work long-term. An independent pest control company will be a better option.
DIY pest control
Using off the shelf pest control treatments or DIY pest control kits are not a long-term solution for pest problems. Plus, do you really know what chemicals DIY pest control treatments contain? They could be toxic, making them hazardous in the home or to the public if used in commercial premises.
DIY pest control treatments are not always the cheapest or safest option. Retailers simply want to sell you a product, they’re not concerned with how you use it.
Often, to be anywhere near effective, you have to spray half a can of something or lay so much bait that before long it runs out and you’re having to buy more. It all adds up, not just the cost, but your time. Plus, most DIY pest control treatments only give you short-term, pest problem relief.
When buying off the shelf pest treatments or kits, you can never be sure if you’ve got the right one for the job or whether you’re using it properly. The instructions are very rarely clear or they might instruct you to start climbing into loft spaces, depending on the pest problem, which isn’t always practical or safe.
Although you can quickly pop to your local store or order DIY pest control kits online for fast delivery, what you’re getting will not keep you pest free for long.
Pest control professionals
Compared to DIY pest control treatments, pest control professionals have the knowledge and expertise to deal with pest problems, permanently. Qualified pest control technicians know exactly which treatment to use for all types of pest and how to apply it, often using non-toxic solutions to ensure your pest problem is dealt with safely.
Using the latest pest treatment plans and equipment, pest control experts can eradicate a pest problem and provide pest proofing solutions to prevent future outbreaks. Pest control technicians will seal off entry points in loft spaces, air vents, drains and pipes, where pests are most likely to gain entry to your property.
Most off the shelf or DIY pest control kits are unsuitable or simply unusable to treat a large-scale infestation, leaving you no option but to call in the professionals.
