Thinking about DIY pest control this summer?

DIY Pest Control

Summer is looming and you've probably already started to notice pests like cockroaches, spiders and rodents are on the move. Perhaps you used to have your pest control done every year and either fell out of the habit or decided to stop to save some extra cash.

In lieu of the professional pest control you might be looking at handling your own pest control, after all....how hard can it be? You may have even popped down to Bunnings and picked up a 5 liter value pack of "kill-'em-all" pesticide that you'll apply liberally around your home.

Our first piece of advice; know what you are trying to control.

DIY cockroach Pest control

Understanding the pests you are trying to eradicate will go a long way in eradicating them from your home. For instance, we, professional pest controllers, wouldn't treat for ants the same way we treat for cockroaches. This is because each species has unique behaviors and preferences in terms of shelter and food source and we treat these pests accordingly.

Our second piece of advice; once you know what you want to control, choose a product that is suitable to kill the pest but is also suited to the pest in terms of delivery method. For example, many domestic pesticides on the isles of Bunnings are repellent pesticides. There's no mistaking that repellent pesticides have their place in a professional pest controller's arsenal but a lot of the time, non-repellent chemicals are a better choice when trying to control pests like cockroaches, ants and termites.

DIY rodent pest control

If you have no clue what we're talking about, our third piece of advice is call a professional pest controller. Sure, you can attempt to take care of your pest problems yourself but why spend the time, money and effort when it's likely you're only going to do a sub -par job anyway? A professional pest controller will be able to identify your pest issue, create a treatment plan accordingly and give you advice on simple things you can do to help resolve the pest problem.
