DIY Pest Control - Useful Ideas and Tips
DIY pest control is not only possible, but it's not really that hard. But you do have to use the right stuff, and you have to stay on top of the process.
So, how does one get rid of their bug control service, but still maintain a pest and bug free home?
With a few steps, you can save your monthly fees and still have no problems with bugs at all.
- When you're working on DIY pest control, it's a really great idea to start before you wind up having bugs. In other words, would you rather stop roaches from coming into your home, or would you like to have to get rid of them after they are in? Pest control isn't just about driving pests out once they get in, it's also about making them stay away from your home in general, so if you don't see pests now, it's a great time to get started keeping it that way.
- The first thing you should know is what pests you will likely have an issue with and choose products that will keep these bullies away from your home. Many products work to protect your home against many different kinds of pests, so if you're shopping for products at your local hardware store, you should know what you're working to treat against. Try to get a reputable product that covers a wide range of pests you're looking to fight.
- The next thing you need to do when it comes to DIY pest control is to have a good idea of which pests might require specialized treatments, such as termites and rats, for instance. Many termite control products require you to treat only for that, so this may be a separate project that you do once yearly.
- You're also going to want to have a good source of information for when it comes time to fight bugs in your home. Good Housekeeping has some really helpful ideas for keeping ants, bees and even mosquitoes and flies away, and you might find more help online, too. Tricks such as sprinkling boric acid in a thin line at all doorways can really help you to stay bug free all season long.
- Read the labels. When it comes to DIY pest control, even if you are using the most environmentally sound products in the world, you still need to make sure that you read all the instructions and use any and all safety gear recommended. You should also follow the instructions when it comes to your kids and pets, and keep them away from any products which you have used.
- Take some helpful hints about DIY pest control from people who know. For instance, did you know that diatomaceous earth (ground up seashells) can serve your home as a bug barrier because it tears up the bellies of crawling bugs such as beetles and spiders? Many people use this stuff as an eco-friendly alternative to some of the harsher chemicals that are out there right now. Or, you can use it as just another form of pest control for your home.
DIY pest control is not only possible, but it's really not that hard. As long as you take the time to educate yourself about controlling pests and pay attention to all directions, usage guidelines and choose the right products for the right problem, you'll find that you have a healthy, bug free home all year round.
