Pests are a common problem in homes and gardens. It is not unusual for us to have been bothered by annoying mosquitoes and flies or to have witnessed colossal ants marching. In the worst case, even being attacked by swarms of bees and wasps.
Common parasites include termites, mice, cockroaches, flies, bed bugs, fleas, spiders, silverfish, ants, and crickets. Parasites eat our food, consume our homes, transmit or cause human disease, devour our clothing, and are often extremely irritating when they inhabit our skin, hair, or digestive tract. Therefore, the management of pest control is an area of enormous importance.
Pest control outdoors
* Extract any weak plants and dispose of them away from the garden, they attract pests.
* Build healthy, organic soil by mulching and reviving the soil with compost or natural fertilizer. It is the best way to develop strong and vigorous plants.
* Using algae mulch or spray improves growth and gives plants the strength to resist disease. Algae mulch also repels snails.
* Minimize insect habitat by clearing the garden area of debris and weeds that are breeding grounds for insects. Keep the foliage dry as well.
* Inter-planting and crop rotation. It ensures that pests don’t spread throughout a crop. Insect pests are often plant specific.
* Disinfect your tools if you have worked with infested plants, before moving on to other areas of the garden
Indoor pest control
* Sanitation: – Maintaining clean indoor environments removes potential areas where parasites can feed, reproduce and hide. Never leave trash or place trash bags on the floor. Never leave dirty laundry on the floor for long periods of time. Clean up any spills or dirt as they occur. Keep your pets clean and have them checked regularly by the vet.
* Exclusion: – Exclusion techniques include screening openings to prevent the entry of flies, mosquitoes and beetles; caulking cracks and crevices to remove existing or potential infestation of pantry pests and cockroaches; and seal or repair external openings to prevent the entry of bats, mice, bees and wasps.
* Temperature control: – Means artificially manipulating the temperature of substrates infested with parasites. Pantry pests, clothes moths and carpet beetles can be eliminated by subjecting infested foods, clothes and carpets to extremely hot or cold temperatures, respectively.
* Removal: – The last important step is the removal of existing parasites using pesticides (chemical or herbal) or by obtaining professional help. Make sure you hire a professional company that has the right skills and the right equipment to effectively solve your pest problem.Tricitybedbugs.ca
