Should you deal with pest control yourself?

One of the most important aspects of home maintenance is pest control. As a home owner, you need to inspect both the inside and outside of your home on a regular basis to check for pests which may be making your home their home.

Any area of your home that has an opening has the potential to host a pest including your roof’s eaves or underneath your home.

You should make a point of inspecting areas that have the potential of infestation on a regular basis. If you have already had some type of pest treatment performed, you want to check and recheck to make sure pests have not returned.

If you think that your only choice for pest control is contact pest control companies, then you would be wrong.

You are perfectly capable of dealing with your pest control problems on your own, as long as you purchase the right products to deal with each pest problem.

Pest Control Products are Toxic, so why should I use them?

You probably have concerns that most pest control products are toxic. The truth is that plenty of pest control companies do still use highly toxic and dangerous products. When you hire a pest control company to deal with a pest problem you simply do not have control over the products that they use in your home or yard. A company may tell you that their products are safe, but there is no absolute guarantee of the safety of a product unless you inspect those products in advance to be sure you know what is being used.

  • “Trapple” – no one likes fruit flies and they seem to come from nowhere. The Trapple is an effective trap for fruit flies and is extremely safe.


  • Pestrol Snake and Toad Away – so how can you keep snakes or toads away from your home? They do not like ultrasonic vibrations and this device is solar powered and is an effective repellent. Snakes are very sensitive to vibrations through receptors that they have in their skin, so when they feel these vibrations, they sense danger and move away from the device. A single device can cover a 35 square meter area in all directions and needs to be placed in an area where it will have the most exposure to sunlight to ensure a full recharge each day.
  • “No Fly Cone” When you spot a pile of poop around your property, simply place this small trap over the feces for a short time. It is non-toxic, waterproof and easy to assemble. Once the trap has collected a large amount of flies it can simply be discarded. Flies do not have a chance to lay eggs on feces because they are collected in the trap, leaving you to enjoy a fly free yard.


  • Electronic repellers – devices which can be plugged into an electrical outlet to repel rodents through the use of a high pitched supersonic noise that drives them away.
