  • Orlando, FL (1888PressRelease) July 23, 2013 - When it comes to pest control, do-it-yourself products may seem like a convenient and cheap way to eliminate pests from in and around your home, but you also open up the doors to the dangers of these chemicals if not used properly. It's common for homeowners to purchase an off-the-shelf pesticide, but many people are often disappointed with the results. Although seemingly convenient, to efficiently eliminate pests you would likely save money calling a pest control company from the start.

    "People are often told of how toxic pesticides are, and fail to still read the directions on the product," says Robert Welch, president of Pro Staff Termite and Pest Control. "They also become highly dissatisfied when the products don't work, as these products are designed with the intent of having you go back to the store to purchase more. Not only can a professional pest control company get the job done the first time around, but a licensed and trained technician will ensure that these chemicals will not harm you and your family."

    Certain bugs and insects won't be easy to get rid of with DIY products, especially during the summer, the ideal time for pests and insects to thrive. Termites, wood-boring insects and bed bugs are some of the most difficult pests to get rid of without professional intervention. These types of infestations can become quite large, and DIY methods are no match.

    As a homeowner, there are many DIY steps you can take to help prevent pests from finding their way into your home, but pairing those steps with a professional pest control maintenance plan is the most effective way to eliminate an infestation. A few do-it-yourself methods at home can include:

    Sealing cracks, windows and openings around your home
    Moving and removing lawn debris and firewood away from the home
    Eliminate any sources of standing water
    Sealing food in airtight containers
    Cleaning your home regularly
    Keeping trash in a sealed container

    If you suspect you have an infestation, your first step should always be to call a licensed and trained pest professional. They will be able to properly identify your pest problem and recommend a pest control maintenance plan.
