Protect Your Family

When I moved into my current home, I almost immediately noticed the roaches. While the place wasn’t overrun with them, I saw them far too often. For a few years, my husband and I tried almost every anti-roach product available on the market. We would enjoy success for a short duration. However, the roaches always came back. Then, a wonderful thing happened. We hired a pest control company to spray our home for termites. As a bonus, the chemicals used to prevent termites got rid of our roach issue. If you want to protect your family from harmful roaches, contact a local pest control entity today. On this blog, you will learn how to rid your home of roaches for good with the help of a pest control specialist.

Some Things You Should Know About Using Commercial Pest Control

Jennie Lucas

Any property that you own should have some sort of pest control. If you don't take pest control measures, there is a good chance that bugs will infest your property and become unmanageable. This is why it is vital that you get good pest control early on. Here are some things you should know.

If You Don't See Any Bugs, Should You Get Pest Control?

Just because you can't see any bugs doesn't mean that you don't have a problem; it simply means that the bugs are nesting and hiding. For example, many people call for pest control only after they notice a bad bug infestation. The problem with this is that if you wait until you actually notice the bugs, then you likely will have bigger problem than you can even see at that point. This is because the bugs are usually hiding, so by the time they come out, you've got a bigger problem.

Additionally, bugs nest during the colder months. So if you ignore the problem when it isn't visible, and only treat it when you can se it, you miss out on one of the most important times—killing the nests and eggs that have been planted throughout your property before the bugs hatch and multiply. This is why it is vital that you get spraying year round, even when you can't see the bugs.

Should You Only Spray In The Inside? 

Even though you might not care if the bugs are outside your property, you should still spray for both the indoor and outdoor problems. This is because if you have a bug problem outside, then it is bound to come inside the building. In fact, many times, the problem originates outside and because it was left untreated, it became a problem inside the building. This is why it is important that every time the exterminator comes, you have them spray both inside and outside the property.

Is There Any Time That The Exterminator Shouldn't Spray?

There are some instances where you should hold off on spraying. Ideally, you should spray outside only when it is dry. This is why it is best to keep the sprinklers off before and after they spray and try to avoid having the exterminator come on a rainy day. Although it won't completely ruin the chemicals, it can affect how potent it is.

Additionally, if you expect pregnant women or infants under the age of one in the building, you should let the exterminator know. By understanding these things, you can get the best pest control.
