Insects in your Oregon home can become an issue if they’re not dealt with quickly and efficiently. No homeowner wants to battle with unwanted bugs in and around their home.
Suppose you want to protect yourself, your family, and your pets. In that case, an experienced professional technician understands how to treat pests in the Eastern Oregon region and can deal with the problem for you. Hiring an expert is definitely the way to go.
Bugs that can cause inconvenience and potential harm to you and your pets include fleas, ants, different types of stingers including spiders, ticks, mosquitos, mice, as well as voles and mud daubers.
If you want to find the best home pest control for you, your family, and pets, then read on.
There are many different types of pests that Oregon homeowners have to deal with.
Here are just a few examples:
Fleas: not only do they bite, but they can cause severe reactions in pets to flea saliva such as hair loss and bleeding.
Stinging insects: No fun for humans or pets, carpenter bees, paper wasps, and spiders can not only cause irritating bites on your skin and that of your pet but, in some instances, severe reactions.
Mice: Both the Deer Mouse and the House Mouse are common to Oregon. Both can spread diseases transmitted to pets and can be tough to get rid of once they’ve found a way into your home.
Safe Products for Your Family and Pets
To avoid adding to your problem, it’s wise to use safe, non-toxic products. The EPA (US Environmental Protection Agency) has a series of guidelines around the dos and don’ts of safe pest control.
However, some pest control sprays contain DEET, which is potentially dangerous to humans and animals, causing side-effects when ingested, breathed in, or when it has contact with the skin.
It’s simpler to protect humans from the harmful effects of DEET when spraying it by keeping anyone vulnerable away from areas you’re dealing with. However, if your pet is exposed to DEET, it can impact their eyesight, lungs, and balance.
In extreme cases, the toxins in DEET can cause seizures and ataxia. The best products that deal with your pest infestation but are kind to your family, pets, home, and garden are non-toxic.
Some spray, for example, may stain and damage your furniture or upholstery. Others can damage plants in your garden or interrupt the natural life cycle of harmless garden inspects.
It’s worth noting that not all-natural pest control products are 100% toxin-free, so it’s always wise to check their ingredients and ask your veterinary practitioner what types of products are safe to use around your pet.
If you’re proud of your DIY skills and can turn your hand to most things in your home, you may feel well-equipped to deal with a bug infestation in your home and garden.
Some homeowners tackle the problem themselves by using a range of different pest repellants from the hardware store. However, there are downsides to this approach.
Many people hope to either save on cost or simply believe they can handle the issue themselves without calling in the professionals.
Instead, the hardware store is their first and only port of call until they eventually find they’ve spent a bundle of cash, and their unwanted guests are still around.
Ultimately, calling in the professionals will be cheaper in the long-run because they can get to the root of the problem and use products tailored to deal with your particular infestation.
