Remember To Store Your Pesticides Properly

Remember To Store Your Pesticides ProperlyAt Bugout Termite and Pest Control, we believe that professional inspections and pest removals are essential when you’re dealing with invasive insects, mammals, and other creatures that are on the lookout for human blood, scavenged food, wooden walls, or even just the warmth of a heated home. By the time you spot a cockroach or a mouse, chances are good that you already have a significant infestation that demands a professional’s attention if you want to completely remove all your uninvited guests.

However, we also know that homeowners don’t always want or need a pest control service to help them. Minor infestations might not need the full treatment, or maybe you have a garden and you want hungry insects to stay away from it. For these reasons, many houses have a supply of pesticide and insect repellents sitting around.

Unfortunately, not every household is storing their pesticides properly. Pesticides are complex, organic molecules: they have to be so they can target some species without harming anything else. In fact, most pesticides are also harmful to people to one degree or another, which is why you have to follow the safety instructions on the can or bottle and why many pesticides aren’t available in home improvement stores. But because pesticides are dangerous and complex, they can also be surprisingly easy to destroy.

Big changes in temperature can change the shape and nature of molecules. Most medicines have to stay at around room temperature or they might deactivate and stop being effective, and the same thing is true about pesticides. While it makes sense to keep it out in the shed or your garage with the rest of your gardening equipment, pesticides aren’t as durable as your work gloves or your shovel.

Instead, pesticides need to stay near room temperature if you want them to keep working. As such a better place to store them would be a basement utility room or a laundry room where you keep your cleaning fluids. If you do that, your pesticide supply will stay good year after year and you won’t have to wonder why it doesn’t seem to keep the bugs at bay the way it did the first time you used it. You should use pesticides sparingly because its targets can start resisting it, but either way it won’t work unless you store it properly
