When most homeowners notice pests in or around their homes, their first reaction is to want to get rid of the invaders. While this might seem like a logical move, it isn’t usually the most ideal. It’s true that some DIY pest control measures work, especially when the critters are few and easily manageable. However, in most cases, pest removal by untrained personnel only provides temporary relief. As a homeowner, you most probably lack the expertise, tools, and skills to get rid of critters and keep them away.

Dos and Don’ts of Pest Control. Pest control is Always Best Left in the Hands of Highly Trained, Certified, Licensed Pros, Such as Ourselves
In instances where you can handle a small pest problem in your house, it’s important to know the safety precautions to take and common mistakes to avoid.
Pest Control Dos
To prevent pests from invading your property, get rid of their sources of food, shelter, and water. Critters normally invade your home or office for these three reasons. Without them, you're less likely to deal with small animals on your property.
So, put food items in tightly covered containers and dispose of leftovers in lidded bins. Also, drain any pools of water in your compound and fix leaking plumbing. Additionally, fixing cracks, crevices, and holes in your wall, near windows, and roof will deny pests access into your house or business.
If the pests are already on your property, use traps to capture and get rid of them. Place traps near areas they frequent, have built a nest, or along paths they use, like behind furniture. Ensure the traps out of reach of kids and pets.
Pest Control Don’ts
While sealing access points prevents pests from coming into your property, don’t do it before removing all the critters in the house. Otherwise, you’ll end up trapping the animals in areas such as the attic and behind the walls where they’re hard to reach.
Avoid using poisonous baits without traps. Poisoned animals can die anywhere in your house, resulting in an odor whose location can be hard to pinpoint. If the pests die in unreachable areas, you’ll have to call in professionals to remove the dead carcasses.
Inside the house, only buy pesticides that have been indicated for indoor use. Chemicals for outdoor application are usually more toxic and remain potent for longer, making them hazardous for indoor use.
