Identify The Type of Pest

The first step toward seeking pest control is to determine which type of pest has invaded your home. Unfortunately, there is a wide variety of insects and pests that tend to invade homes, including spiders, ants, termites, mice, wasps, bed bugs, and many other types of insects and rodents. The best way to know is if you physically see the pest, but other signs can include droppings, markings, and physical damage.


Try Pest Prevention

Next, it is vital to undertake DIY pest prevention measures to inhibit more of them from entering the home. Start by removing potential sources of food, water, and shelter for pests. This can include properly storing food (and even garbage), fixing water leaks, removing clutter that provides pests a place to hide and breed, and blocking off areas where pests can enter.


Safely and Correctly Use Pesticides 

Once you have identified the type of pest, and if preventional measures are not working, it is time to use pesticides. Although this is best left to the experts, you can give it a go as long as you stay safe and correctly use pesticide products. Follow these tips:

  • Keep pets and children away from areas where pesticides have been applied

  • Purchase a pesticide advertised for your specific rodent problem

  • Always read and follow the instructions

  • Only apply chemicals approved for use in homes

  • Use bait to attract pests to the area with pesticides
