HSMA Charges : Pest Control myths deflated

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Pests are really a darned problem haunting almost every second house in California. As per a report, with the advent of luxuries and advanced technologies, the threat of pests in our homes has increased significantly. Why, because people have less time to spare for their domestic problems seeking the comfort that technology offers. In the year 2016, out of 100, 40 households were found infested with a variety of pests. This includes ants, bed bugs, cockroaches, lizards, termites, mouse & bugs.

But, while there are many noteworthy aspects associated with pest control, the air has more myths floating around. There are several myths about pest control that make people skeptical about it. This blog is an effort to make people understand the importance of pest control and deflate the myths:

  • If you don’t see them, you might not have them:

People are often worried about the invisible pests; that keep hiding in the nooks & corners of your house. But, the reality is, this isn’t always true. If you cannot see the pest, the reason is they aren’t there. So, stop daydreaming and enjoy life.

  • Bugs spray is of no use:

Another myth because bugs spray is the most effective tool to get rid of the unwanted bugs; you need to use them appropriately. You must use bugs spray after the sun is down. Note that bugs have the same day cycle as yours. Once you are up and around, so are they.

  • Cheese is the most effective bait for rodents:

Indeed it is but sugary foods like cookies, peanut butter & cereals attract them much more than cheese. You can catch many mice & rats using such sugary foods.

  • Ultrasonic pest control devices are the best:

Yes, they are best but not in pest control but in making money out of the customers. They are expensive and do not offer any results out of the box. So, it is better to maintain a safe distance from these expensive devices.

  • Cats help in keeping rodents at bay:

Again, rodents are a problem to us and cats are a problem to rodents, but, the cats of the current century are so better fed that their natural instinct of killing rodents have been long lost with time. So, having a cat at home doesn’t mean you are free from rodents.

  • Highly fragrant spices keep termites at bay:

Who said that we mean, if this could be possible why do your kitchen shelves have loads of termites feeding on your expensive woods. Termite control companies in Anaheim states that the only way to keep termites away from your home is to use a good termite repellent primer on your wooden fittings during construction. In case, after that you are facing termite problem, you must contact a pest controller and get a termite pest control operation furnished at your home.

The acutely effective solution for pest control at your home is maintaining the clean and hygienic environment. Unhygienic conditions make your home doomed for diseases and bugs. So keep clean and enjoy a pest free home

      There are more myths about pest control they are not mentioned here like bed bugs are not visible with naked eye, a clean home will not have mice or bugs, professional control treatments are dangerous, consult a professional expert only when there is a serious problem, etc. These are only myths not facts. If one finds the need to hire Pest Control Brookfield CT( ) services, they should hire before the infestation increase and try to harm them.
