There are many pest control solutions that employ caustic chemicals and aggressive treatments that may not be in the best health interests of small children, pets, elderly, or infirmed. Often, over the counter pest control solutions cause more problems than they solve, with carcinogenic ingredients that pests quickly adapt to, but humans find precarious at best.
Protecting your home from pest infestations should come second to protecting your family from exposure to dangerous or deadly chemicals. When dealing with a pest control issue, consider these three tips to safely exterminate or even avoid pest control situations altogether.
AN OUNCE OF PREVENTION
Try preventative measures first. Deep cleaning, re-organizing or de-cluttering are actions that can have a direct impact on your pest control situation and help you and your family avoid chemical intervention.
INSPECT YOUR HOME FOR PROBLEM AREAS
Examine your home’s exterior and repair any weak points that could be exploited by pests such as rodents. Repairing foundation cracks, window frame gaps or ill-fitting doors can all help you avoid pest infestations in the first place.
