These days with so many products on the market, it is hard not to be tempted to carryout our own pest control on our homes. While sometimes it may work 99% of the time it only kills the pests that you see and not the pest which are lurking in their harbourage spots and this could lead to a serious infestation of pests behind the scenes.

 

There are pests that we recommend that our clients can get rid of their own as it saves you money and time such as the Indian Meal Moths and drain/fruit flies, these pests can easily be eradicated by yourself in your own time. (If you have Drain/fruit flies or Indian Meal Moths than click here)

 

Homemade remedies and store-bought products only will kill the pests that you see and not the pests that are in harbourage spots. Say for instance if you have German cockroaches, the lifecycle is six weeks and for every female that you have she will have an ootheca (egg capsule) and in the ootheca there will be anywhere from 40-50 nymph cockroaches, so an infestation can get out of hand very quickly. Large cockroaches will only have about 5-7 nymphs every six weeks. So, as you can see there is a big difference with the larger cockroaches to that of the German cockroach.

 

Store bought products and home remedies can be great for the one-off pests but if not applied right it could lead to the positioning of your loved ones or pets.
