pest11The dos of pest control:

Try pest prevention first

Instead of waiting till your home is infested by pests to do something about it, try preventing them from getting into your home. Contact a pest controller and take some preventive measure before anything happens. This will save you a lot of money, time and energy.

Take precautionary measures

If doing the pest control in Adelaide means moving out of your house for a few days to keep you and your family safe from the pesticides, do it without second thoughts. If you are doing the pest control on your own, make sure that you wear protective gear and take all the necessary precautions.

Dispose leftover pesticides correctly

This is the simplest thing to do yet we often get it wrong. Just follow the instructions written on the bottle and dispose the remaining chemicals appropriately.

The don’ts of pest control:

Don’t use out door chemicals indoors

The reason why there are outdoor chemicals and indoor chemicals is because they differ in strength. Outdoor chemicals are often lethal and more dangerous compared to those used indoors. Therefore, using outdoor chemicals indoors could prove fatal.

Don’t assume more means better

More could prove deadly. Use the chemicals as specified. If you are not sure of the amount you are to use, seek professional advice. This will keep you from making mistakes that can cost your life of that of a loved one.

Don’t transfer pesticides to other containers

This will simply mean that they can easily be confused for something else and consumed. This could end up being disastrous and deadly. Therefore, leave the remaining pesticides in their original containers. This will help avoid any kind of confusion. Is the container is destroyed, then dispose the chemical along with the container appropriately.
