Are DIY outdoor sprays and products effective?

They can be, but as we discussed above, they’re often filled with harsh and harmful chemicals that could pose a threat to pets, children, your landscape, and the broader ecosystem around your property. Pest control can also be a time-consuming task that ultimately ends in you contacting a professional, so it’s recommended that you save yourself time and money by reaching out to a specialist. You should also keep in mind that many outdoor pests, such as wasps, are dangerous and can be dangerous for the inexperienced, no matter how effective the product.
