There are many home pest control products available for consumers. The DIY approach for controlling insect and pest problems has been around since man discovered that he could limit the amount of nuisance he experienced through measurable tactics. That is, using traps and cpoisonss to rid dwellings of common pests.

So while we will always recommend that no one will separate you from your pest problem like calling a professional pest control service, here are a few ways you can take matters into your own hands and stop pests from ruining your day.

In this post, we’ll talk specifically about rodents and other pests that fall into this category.

Controlling rodents is a simple process, unless they are out of control. But most homeowners forget, rodents is a fairly broad category that includes squirrels, raccoons, and bats, as well as mice and rats. So ridding your home of them takes on a variety of methods.

However, most of your success will stem from traps. Traps of any kind, as long as they are designed to catch rodents and keep them enclosed, or to kill them on contact. You can pick these up from any home improvement store, or from DIY pest control outlets on the Internet.

Similarly, there are many types of poisons available, but this method often leads to the animal crawling off somewhere into your home and finding its final resting place. Baiting the rodents with a poison works, but dealing with the final results is sometimes not worth the trouble.

Bats, on the other hand, should be dealt with in a completely different manner. This is because, in spite of how they have been portrayed and how you might feel, a single bat eats well over 1,000 insects a night. They should never be eliminated, and the only way to better the situation is to contact a pest control service, and have them safely removed.
