Do's and Don'ts of Pest Control

Do’s and Don’ts of Michigan Pest Control

From the moment you notice an unwelcome bug or rodent in your house, the first thing that you want to do is to get rid of it. You might quickly search for natural methods that you can immediately try on your own. You also might do a search for pest control in Troy, Michigan, if you prefer to leave it to the professionals. But, it is important to keep a few do’s and don’ts in mind when it comes to pest control.

Do: Begin With Pest Prevention First

Just as with anything else, it is going to be more effective and affordable to prevent bugs than it is to remove them. There are steps that you can take to prevent bug infestations in your home including:

  • Secure all food
  • Keep an eye out for entrance points
  • Close doors immediately
  • Avoid placing plants too close to the perimeter of your house
  • Arrange for a pest prevention service in the spring

It is much easier to prevent bugs from coming into your home. Once they have already found their way in and turned your area into their living arrangement, it can be much more difficult to rid them for good.

Don’t: Believe Everything You Read Online

If you do a quick search, you will likely find many proven bug removal remedies that people swear by. The problem with a lot of these home remedies is that they rarely offer a permanent solution. They might rid your home of ants, spiders, or centipedes initially but they do not remove them for good. It often requires professional pest control services to effectively remove the bug and the home that they have built.

Do: Understand the Pest Removal Process

It is usually a good idea to ask questions about what the pest control specialist plans to do to rid your home of bugs. In fact, the pest control specialists at Pest-Ez East are here to inform and educate you, while taking action against your household bugs. By understanding the process, you can know what to expect.


Don’t: Use dangerous pesticides

Unfortunately, a lot of pesticides on the market have harsh chemicals and can be dangerous. While these dangerous pesticides will get rid of the bugs in your house, they can also pose a danger to you and your family. Our pest control specialists use eco-friendly products that are safe. They are strong enough to get the job done without harming your children, pets, or you.

What You Should Do Before Hiring a Pest Exterminator

Pests are one of the most annoying invaders in a home, and they can get worse if you do not take fast action. They can cause discomfort, carry disease-causing pathogens, and cause damage to your property all at the same time. Because of that, you should have a pest exterminator on the dial to help you when these uninvited visitors strike.

Questions to Ask Your Potential Bed Bug Exterminator Service

No homeowner or resident ever wants to deal with a dangerous outbreak of bed bugs. But unfortunately, they can happen all across the country to any random individual or family. When it does happen, you want a qualified individual to irradiate the issue almost immediately. But with so many pest exterminators and pest control specialists in the area—the United States currently has 27,000 different businesses operating at the moment— it can be overwhelming to try and narrow it down.

    It went great. No more wasps after 48 hrs. And it took only 15 minutes to apply the treatment. The man that came (I forgot his name but I believe it's a small family business) was very serious and knowledgeable. Also he was the first one to respond and be able to show up after I contacted 4 or 5 different pest exterminators. Aliq, S. *
