billions of dollars spent on
People who own houses in this day and age keep a long list that resembles that of the FBI, of
pests that they do not want in their houses. Based on information from the National Pest Control
Association, which is a not-for-profit company that is made up of numerous pest control
businesses that target household pests, unwanted pests are responsible for about 4.5 billion
dollars' worth of harm annually. On top of this your health and the health of your family could be at
risk from these pests.
It is unfortunate that even the most organized, spotless homes can be invaded by these
unwelcome visitors. The ingress of these unwanted visitors may or may not be tied to the region
of the home or the current season. Because our homes are climate controlled, pests can survive
extreme summers and freezing winters indoors all year long. The number of rodents that try and
get into your home will increase in the autumn months because the lowering outside temperatures
will have them looking for a warm place. Cockroaches find their way into people's homes by
hitching a ride in cars and grocery bags.
However, there are other insects that just hop onto your clothes or shoes to get inside. Pest
control is something you need to think about all year round, it does not matter the time of year of
where you live. To truly deal with your pest problem you will need to spend more than a couple of
bucks on the best pest control the local grocery store has to offer. The unhelpful fact is pests live
off exactly those things you yourself require to survive, warmth, food and water.
Obviously humans need these three things as well, so you can not simply go without them and
keep them out of the home for as long as it takes your pest problem to disappear. However you
can take preventative steps. #1 - Be sure to keep any hiding places or breeding spots in your
home extremely clean and free of debris, such as cracks or crevices found in vents, baseboards,
floors or under the stairs. Take the garbage out daily, and make sure there is nothing laying
around in your home that shouldn't be.
A good preventative measure is to install screens over your windows and doors, make sure there
are no cracks outside that can allow access to your home for small pests. #4 - Don't purchase
large volume boxes of food and be sure to store any food that insects would invade in tight
containers or plastic zip bags. Any time you have a spill, either food or drink, clean it up
thoroughly. #6 - Produce packages such as netting, plastic wrappings and boxes are particularly
vulnerable. Bed Bug Dogs Austin
Keep in mind that if you have been using any pesticides, all of them come with a risk factor that
can lead to true physical harm if used incorrectly. Look for pesticides that have an EPA
registration number and are labeled for use where you wish to implement them, i.e use in the
garden or kitchen etc. Environmental Protection Agency registered pesticides should be
environmentally safe if used correctly. Always do make sure to read the safety instructions and
follow them. Use insecticides for those insects they are designed and not for anything else.

When not being used always be sure to keep pesticides out of children's reach. Be careful when
you dispose of unused chemicals. If you aren't sure how to dispose of the product, call a
professional and ask. Pest controllers are specially trained to kill pests in the safest and most
effective way possible, they will get the job done with as little damage as possible and should use
the best equipment for the job. There is a booklet you can find to help you out called "The Ten
Most Unwanted Common Household Pests and What To Do About Them". The booklet is
available at no cost, but you will have to pay for shipping and handling. Animal Control Austin
