Dangers of DIY Pest & Termite Control

Professional Pest Control

Do It Yourself pest control has gained in popularity over recent years, due to the increase in home renovation and gardening type programs in the media and by being promoted heavily on television.
Doing your own pest control might save money initially, it can lead to ongoing problems and work out much more costly in the long run.
Unfortunately, one of the biggest problems with people using over-the-counter insect repellents is that they often believe that “more is better”. We often see homeowners spraying everywhere around their property with an excessive amount of chemicals which is not ecofriendly to the environment or your family and pets.
Professional pest control products are stronger and are applied strategically, as a very thin film, that is designed to bind or “stick” to the surface. When large amounts of chemicals are applied they often “run off” or leave residues, which can be ingested or walked against causing potential health problems to pets and children.
The other mistake that people make is to over apply chemicals to common areas internally and externally where children might regularly play. It can be quite dangerous to young children in particular, if rat pellets, termite baits, or other toxic chemicals are applied in areas that have the potential for contact with the skin, eyes or worse, be ingested.
