Typically, pest control services are regulated by the local municipality that has jurisdiction over them with laws in place to make sure they are not using any banned substances, which may pose a threat to the community.
Apart from the bug spray you find at your local supermarket, dealing with pests on your own is not a good idea. You’ll likely have a lot of trouble doing so anyway, due to restrictions on the availability of the poisons allowed for use, and the license needed to acquire them.
Pest control services are run by professionals who know their job. They know the bugs, they know what kills them, how much pesticide to use, and how to store it. All of these systems are in place to protect not just people, but the environment as well.
Like a lot of things in life pest control works best as a preventative measure rather than one of eradication. As such, pest control is best done at a maintenance level. That is, the pest control company should come in at regular intervals during the year and spray long lasting chemicals at strategic points around the property to prevent an infestation from occurring in the first place. This is where their expertise comes in handy as they know what attracts pests to a property in the first place, as well as all the sneaky little hiding places where pests are likely to hang out and breed. Most companies will recommend a minimum of yearly inspections with quarterly treatments coming highly recommended.
Make sure you know what your requirements are when you are about to receive an inspection or treatment. They may ask you to prepare the property in a certain way or have children stay somewhere else for a few hours while the chemicals settle in.
Once the inspection is complete you will be given a list of recommended procedures to carry out around the property, or properties. It is always best to comply with these recommendations to protect your investment, or the investment for members of the home-owners’ association.
