Pest Control Guide: Ant Infestation

Pest Control Guide: Ant Infestation

More than likely, you have experienced an ant infestation at some point in your home. It doesn’t matter how clean your home is; they can still get in and cause big problems. While they play a big role in the environment, they aren’t welcome in our homes! Nobody wants to look at patches of black ants on their walls, so what do we do about any infestations? Read on….. Because ants exist in colonies, it can make eradicating them a bit harder. You will hardly ever see ants walking around alone, as other ants in the colony will come right behind them. Every ant colony has a queen female who will lay eggs by the hundreds. Then there are worker ants and male ants that work around the clock daily to carry out their duties. Since the worker ants are females unable to lay eggs, their job is to go out and find food and bring it back to the colony. You’ve probably noticed before how ants march in a single file line. They leave behind a scent that all the other ants can smell, leading them to their food source. They love sugary things like candy or spilled drinks, so it’s important to clean areas like this often. They will also eat organic matter such as plants or wood. Tips On Getting Rid Of Ant Infestations There are a couple of types of ant infestations and you should understand them before you go after applying treatments. The first type is outside colonies. With these colonies, the ants still manage to get in your home, even though their colony is...
Common Concerns About Termite Fumigation

Common Concerns About Termite Fumigation

If you are a homeowner and have heard the dreaded news that you are also the owners of a termite infestation, your first concern might be the chemicals used during termite fumigation. After all, you do not want the air your family breathes to be polluted with dangerous pesticides. However, you’ll be relieved to know that the chemicals used now are not harmful and it is rarely a problem to fumigate for termites. If they are not treated, termites can cause a lot of damage in a fairly short period of time. Common Methods Of Termite Fumigation The most drastic measure used to treat a termite infestation is a substance called Vikane, a type of gas used while tenting the home. Basically, this means that your entire home has a special “tent” sealed around it and the Vikane gets pumped in while large fans circulate it around the air. The entire home is fumigated under the sealed tent structure for one day. On the second day when the tent is removed, the home will be left to dry out. You’ll be able to return to your home on the third day. You may have concerns when using termite fumigation treatment, but the gas does not stick to surfaces in your home, including furniture, and the minute amount of gas left in the air after drying out the house has been shown to be safe for us to breathe. If your pest control company has recommended treating the inside of your home with chemicals for termite control, you may also be having fumigation concerns due to the chemicals being sprayed in...

Pest Control Preparation For Six Types of Pests

Pest Control Preparation For Six Types of Pests

If you want an effective pest control strategy, simply hiring one does not suggest you immediately require service, then just sit and wait for the experts. What you need is to work together with reliable pest control professionals to make it work. For homeowners, the process of preparation is relatively basic because most pest control professionals will supply you with a guide to complete before going to your home. The reason for this is because an absence of preparation might make a treatment risky or trigger re-infestation of the whole house or structure. Thus, most professionals will not deal with locations that have not been prepped according to their requirement. Pest Control Preparations Cockroach Control Service Experts frequently utilize gel bait insecticides in order to manage and remove cockroaches. This needs the positioning of little drops of gel bait in locations where cockroaches are anticipated to harbor or feed. Cleaning your house prior to the pest control service should be on top of your list as well as keeping your house as cool and tidy as possible for long-lasting success. This will help remove food sources for the pests, making the bait more appealing. Homeowners must be responsible for informing the pest control professional if anyone in the house has severe allergic reactions, is pregnant or is a minor. Pets and all household members should avoid areas being serviced by pest control professionals. Rodent Control Service The sighting of even a single mouse or rat in your house can suggest that there is a whole household residing in your house’s basement, in the walls or floorings, or around saved...
Why Organic Pest Control Is The Best Choice

Why Organic Pest Control Is The Best Choice

If you are living an eco-friendly lifestyle, why not include the use of organic pest control methods into your household routines? There are lots of benefits in using organic pesticides not only in your garden but also throughout your home. If you cannot get rid of the pests in your home and they just seem to keep coming back, try using natural pest control. Here are some of the great benefits that you can obtain from using organic pest control. Natural pest control does not harm or damage the environment Although pest control products available in the market today claim that they contain less or zero chlorofluorocarbon or CFC’s, you can never be too sure unless you use natural pest sprays. Remember that CFC’s are harmful organic compounds that can damage the ozone layer. Continued use of products that contain CFC’s – and the continued destruction of the ozone layer – will result in increasing the already large amounts of ultraviolet radiation in the atmosphere. Aside from being completely chemical free, these organic pest sprays do not contain CFC’s and any foul smelling chemical odor. Chemical-based pest control products also release other substances and compounds into the air, water, and soil that could harm and put other animals at risk. Natural pest control products, however, contain only organic substances that break down into their natural elements gradually, making sure they directly target the pests that you want to eliminate. Also, organic pest products are specifically developed not to release elements and substances that may harm the environment. Organic pest control products do not affect the soil’s natural structure Many...
