3 Most Common Methods Used in Pest Control


Pests can cause damage to your crops, property as well as be a health hazard to you and your family. However, when it comes to controlling them, it is important to use the services of a qualified exterminator because the government protects some pests like squirrels since they are becoming extinct. So, you want to make sure that the Pest Control method used will effectively control the kind of pest you are dealing with without causing any harm and staying within the law. Here are some of the most commonly used methods:

Biological method

This method doesn’t have any side effects to both living or non-living things. Mosquitoes are for instance controlled biologically by putting a certain bacterium in their breeding area to kill the mosquito larvae. This has no negative consequences and in fact, the water can be used for human consumption.

Poisoned bait

This method is commonly used to control rodents like rats. One is advised to first place non-poisoned bait in the pathways used by rats for some days and see if these pests will consume it. After ascertaining that they have consumed it, then replace it with a poisoned one so that once they consume it they will die. Poisoned baits have been used for years to also poison wolves and pest birds. Once the bait has killed the targeted pest, a proper disposal of the carcass should be carried out to avoid being consumed by other animals, as this will kill them.

Use of pesticides

Pesticides are the most commonly used method for getting rid of pests. They can be found easily at local stores and usually do not cost much. However, one should be careful with reading instructions and identifying the chemical components of the pesticides he wants to use. With this, one can know if a certain pesticide will cause any allergic reactions to them or their family. However, if possible, hire services of professional exterminators as they have enough knowledge and experience on the proper use of pesticides. And if you are to apply the pesticide yourself, make sure that you don’t poison water meant for human and animal consumption.

These are just a few of the many Pest Control methods that Wildcat Exterminating Inc. uses.
