DIY Pest Control Is Not Always The Best Extermination Option
Taking a trip down any hardware or retail store’s pest control aisle can become an intimidating experience. Shelves are lined from floor to ceiling with products making claims to do varying things. Some are environmental, human, and pet-friendly while other substances may cause harm. Traditional mouse and rat traps are effective if they snap closed just right, but sometimes they only get the tail, and the rodents are able to run away. Baits and poisons are filled with attractants to lure creatures in to eat. However, this option tends to lead to them dying any and everywhere. Pungent aromas linger out from behind cabinets, drywall, and other locations, which cause homeowners to rip out the materials to find and eliminate the smell.
Glue traps catch the critters live, and people must put their hands close to them during removal. Mice usually run away from humans, but feeling isolated and alone, they will not hesitate to bite or scratch. Aside from a painful infliction, the incident can cause people to become ill. Rodents are the carriers of many types of diseases like Lymphocytic Chorio-meningitis and Leptospirosis. These pests are not the only ones to put a person’s health at risk though. Most spider bites are non-fatal and can be treated at home with ointments, creams, and allergy pills. However, black widows and brown recluse wounds can be more severe. Symptoms typically include but are not limited to…
• Fever And Chills
• Nausea And Vomiting
