Safety Required For Indoor Pest Control

Every once in awhile, just about everyone will have unwelcome visitors in their home, regardless of how clean you believe your house to be, some of these critters will find something to eat. When you consider your options for indoor pest control, you have to consider the presence of pets, children and yourself.

First, think about preventing the pest from wanting to visit you by making sure you do not offer an invitation of food, water and shelter. If pests find they can eat and sleep in ideal conditions for them, they are going to hang around as long as possible. If you are able to remove their source of food and water, they will head off to a better home. Part of the indoor pest control process involves giving them no reason to hang around.

One of the important aspects of indoor pest control is knowing what your enemy is. A flying ant looks very similar to a termite and despite their physical similarities, it takes two distinctly different approaches to rid them from your home. You will also have to know the source of the pest, or the nest, or order to eradicate the entire population as well as eggs that have not yet hatched.

Sprays And Dusts Are Not Discriminatory

There are many products on the market to help you contend with a variety of bugs and insects, most contained in sprays and powders. Unfortunately, these products do not know the difference between a bug and a beloved pet and most indoor pest control products are extremely dangerous to small animals. They can also cause illness to children and many adults as well. It is important to follow all label directions when using these products to insure your success.

For example, boric acid is used in one form as an eyewash mixed by pharmacists and can cause eye and skin irritation if used contrary to directions. It is used as in indoor pest control product for fleas and may sit on a carpeted area for an hour before it is vacuumed, and if your pet or small child is exposed to it, can cause rashes or other signs of irritation.

When using any product manufactured for indoor pest control you cannot presume that it is safe. All insecticides and growth inhibitors come with cautions and possible effects to pets and humans and directions must always be followed. When you have finished your project, be certain to wash your hands and face and any exposed areas of your skin to reduce the possibility of contamination.
