The Do’s and Don’ts of Effective Pest Control

Are you frustrated with pest problems and want to know how to get rid of them for good? Safely solve your rodent, ant, or termite troubles with these do’s and don’ts tips.

#1 Pest Prevention
Remove sources of food, water, and shelter. That includes storing food in sealed containers, discarding food scraps in the garbage disposal or a tightly sealed trash can, and removing trash from your home regularly. Close off places where pests can enter or hide by caulking cracks and crevices around cabinets or baseboards.

#2 Safely Use Pesticides
After preventative steps have been taken, you can use bait as a first line of chemical defense against insects or rodents. Always read and follow the pesticide label’s instructions and safety warnings. Only apply chemicals approved for use in homes. When your pest problem becomes too much for baits and traps, and you need professional extermination for pest control in Cape Coral, contact American Allegiance Pest Control.

#3 Never Use More Than Recommended
Using twice as much pesticide as recommended isn’t going to make it more effective at killing pests, but it can potentially endanger the health of your family. Always use pesticides according to the instructions.
