Pests are bound to infest wherever there is a source of food, water, and warmth. Homes and offices become the primary choice of pests to infest due to the favorable conditions. These all things togetherly combine to make them stay longer. When they come to your home you should not welcome them. Their productivity rate is very fast and high. So it is better to find a cure for them at the right time. People generally keep exploring various measures online for exterminating pests. But, most of the time people fail as DIY methods are not effective in the long term.
Here are few mistakes which people make trying DIY methods for pest control
- Picking up the wrong pesticide
People generally buy bug spray for killing all pests but bug sprays do not work for all types of pests. You have to choose the right spray for the right pest. You should identify the pests first and then get the products accordingly. If you want to buy the pesticide then consult the store owner and get the perfect product.
- Ignoring the instructions
People while buying pesticides do not read the instructions. They do not follow the proper guidelines and use pesticides in their own way. This process will not give the results as expected. For using the pesticides in the right way you have to have all the required knowledge.
- Placing the trap in the wrong position
For setting the traps and baits you have to choose the right place in the house. This can lead to false consequences as your toddlers can touch them or even eat them unknowingly. It can lead to various allergies and diseases. So better try placing the baits in the right places.
- Using the same products for indoor and outdoor pest
People use the same baits and sprays for indoor and outdoor pests. Then the results are not as thought. The same spays do not work for all types of pests. You should have experience using the right pesticides for any of the pests you have around.
- Same bait for all pests
As if sugar works for ants but not for all pests. Generally online available measures and baits are common but they do not affect in the same way as a specific bait would do.
- Improper care of pets
Pest is the main reason for any pest infestation. Fleas, dust mites, ticks are attracted to cats and dogs. They can affect your sofa, bedding, and clothes and lead to infestation everywhere.
- Wrongly identified pests
Sometimes you may not be able to identify the right pest. This could be one reason for increasing pest invasion. Wrongly identified pests may lead to wrong methods. This could be due to false judgment.
- Harsh chemicals usage
When you go to the market you may buy harsh chemicals for pest control which may unintentionally affect the health of your family members due to their foul odour. Sometimes kids come in contact with these chemicals and get ill.
