Effective Pest Control
How to keep your property safe from invading armies of pests.
Pests can be a menace to any property. Whether it is mosquitoes or ants or cockroaches or scorpions, these pests can start an entire generation or two on your property and you won’t even be aware of it because they work very secretively. That is why you will often notice dens of scorpions being extradited by the pest control team. Their presence makes the property eerie and workers will complain every now and then about the growing difficulties of working in such a pest-imistic condition. Your immediate action should be to get in touch with a company that will ensure complete pest removal from the property. One thing to keep in mind while hiring a pest control company is that the company should provide biological pest control or use organic pest control methods. Remember that there will be people and pets on the premise and the pesticides used shouldn’t harm their health.
Biological pest control
Biological pest control and organic pest control is the same thing. They involve using pesticides that are not harmful to children or animals but keep the bugs away. This keeps the air and water in the property safe. Moreover, the pest control team will take every precaution to make sure that the termites are killed and taken away from the property after they are done. Some of the conventional methods applied in organic pest control are:
Using natural pest repellents
Flies and mosquitoes often invade properties and spraying chemicals may not be as effective as killing the other pests. In such cases, you can use natural pest repellents such as peppermint essential oil. The repelling odor of the essential oil keeps the insects away. This is a very cost-effective method of dealing with pests in the office. The odor is not too strong for people to feel uncomfortable. However, you need to reapply consistantly as it dissipates within a day or two. We recommend a balance between organic and natural options, having our technician come out once a month, or once every 3 months can be efficient for your needs.
Spraying organic chemicals on furniture and fixtures
Typically, the first response to get rid of any bugs or pests in your home is to completely saturate the entire area, while that is a valid response, it’s not always the best way to handle your problem. While spraying every item of furniture seems reasonable to some, it is not necessary. Even safe chemicals should not be overused. Learning the habits and patterns of the pests you are fighting is the smart way to remove them from your home. Sealing entryways, preventing them from coming in is usually the best approach in preventing them from moving in and staying.
Using snap traps
We routinely have to deal with mice attacks in peoples homes. These mice are resilient and will not go away by spraying organic pesticides. That is why we use snap traps to catch and control the rodents. Organic pest control means not using chemical pesticides. Using snap traps and copper flashing on the doors and windows will both catch the existing mice and will also prevent their entry in the future. While this seems like the most natural solution, depending on your rodent problem, we may need to look at additional defensive measures.
