Why You Should Avoid DIY Treatments


March 26, 2019

If your car was having trouble and your friend handed you a toolbox to fix it, would you know how? Unless you are a professional or self-taught mechanic, our guess is that you would not be able to get the job done right. In fact, you may even hurt yourself in the process. Trying to get rid of pests in your home on your own is the same way. Without the proper knowledge, training, and tools, the job just won’t get done right and you risk putting yourself and others in harm's way during the process.

General Pest Problems

There are a countless number of pest invaders you could find in or around your home, given the right circumstances. Sometimes these pests are small and creepy, other times they are larger and covered in hair. Regardless of what shape or size your pest problem came in, we are certain of one thing, you'll want it to go away. This is a natural response to pests as they can be destructive by eating your clothing, furniture, or the home itself, dangerous with hard to treat diseases or painful stingers, or just a straight-up nuisance!

The Downfalls Of DIY

When it comes to DIY pest control, it comes in many forms. Some recommend exclusion tactics that involve costly home improvements to seal it off from invading pests, other DIY methods recommend the use of store or internet bought pesticides, either way, there are serious downsides.
 
If you try to seal off your home, pests could find another way inside. A single mouse only requires a hole the size of a nickel to invade your home, just think about how much space a tiny spider needs. Finding and sealing up every tiny hole and crack across the entire exterior of your home is not a valid option to keep pests away.
 
On the other side of DIY pest control, there are pesticides, this is where we get into the dangers of DIY. Most things that are dangerous enough to kill pests, can also be harmful to you, your family, and your pets. Keep in mind that the majority of store-bought pesticides contain dangerous chemicals that if used improperly could cause more than just pests harm. This is not something we want for you or your family!
