How to Effectively Control Pests

Pest control maintenance are rodents, insects and other organisms that damage or spoil property, cause disease or discomfort to people, animals or plants, or create a nuisance. Pest control includes preventative methods as well as chemical and non-chemical treatments. The effectiveness of pest control measures depends on the type of pest, how severe the problem is and conditions that influence population growth such as weather and food supply.

What are the effective methods of controlling pests which have less harmful

Prevention is the first step in controlling most pests. The key is to remove the pest’s food, water and shelter sources. Store foods in sealed plastic or glass containers and dispose of garbage on a regular basis. Eliminate sheltered places such as piles of wood, leaves, hay or debris that might attract rodents and other pests. Keep trash cans tightly closed and clean.

Cleaning regularly, vacuuming carpets, dusting and sweeping help to keep pest populations below harmful levels by disturbing their eggs and larvae. Regular scouting for pests in out-of-the-way places like behind furniture and along skirting boards helps to identify problems before they get out of hand.

If a problem does occur, choose non-chemical control options such as traps, baits and insecticidal soaps and sprays that have low risk for children and pets. If chemicals are used, follow the product labels for application instructions and safety warnings. Select pesticides designed for the specific pest. Some pesticides may be more effective if applied to surfaces instead of sprayed into the air. Do not apply more than the recommended amount.
