By Kravelv @kravelv

Getting rid of all pests is a complicated process which can be successfully performed by pest control professionals. Make sure to do your part of the job since pest control operators (PCOs) can’t do everything on their own. Before they arrive at your home, you’ll need to take care of some prearrangements. Your PCOs will provide you with a list of activities, and you should go through it before they knock at the door. If you miss preparing your home, the whole treatment can end being unsafe or cause reinfestation. Below are the most common control services you may need, and precaution measures you should take.

Cockroach control service

Almost all pest control companies use gel bait insecticides while dealing with cockroaches. Small beads of gel will be placed all around your home and especially in areas where cockroaches used to feed, travel and harbor. Because of this, it is important to clean the house before PCO’s arrival and let them know if someone has allergy issues, or pregnant. Make sure all pets and people are not near the serviced area and keep it that way as long as needed. Your PCO will let you know when is the safe time to go back in.

Process Of Pest Control Procedures At Your Home – What You Should Know

Flea control service

If you have pets that are free to go out and spend the rest of the time in the house, it is very likely that your home is full of fleas. There are two possibilities of controlling this type of pest. You can either purchase flea control product and apply it, or wait for professionals so they can take care of it. Either way, it is important to treat both the house and the yard if possible. Make sure to vacuum all carpets, mop wood floors, clean and vacuum closets and furniture, and wash pet bedding with hot water.

Ant control service

The procedure of ant control is very similar to a cockroach one. Professionals are also using gel bait insecticides in order to lure ants and redirect their attention from the usual feeding area. Small beads of the gel are usually placed on a piece of cardboard or inside an ant bait station. Get prepared by cleaning the spills, storing food in containers which are ant-proof, and clean the house thoroughly. The best practice is to remove big pieces of furniture during the treatment. In order to do this efficiently, feel free to rent a mobile self-storage at one of the numerous companies such as storage company in Auckland.

Rodent control service

If you get a chance to see just one rat or mouse running across the room, you can almost be sure that you’re hosting the whole family in the basement. Of course, there’s a way to tackle this issue by yourself, but if the situation is out of control, it is better to hire a professional. In order to help PCOs, go ahead and fix all holes in walls, doors, or baseboards. Another thing you should do is cleaning the top and bottom of your kitchen appliances, so these areas are easily approached by PCOs.

Bed bug control service

One of the most serious pest issues is most certainly the appearance of bed bugs. This type of pest control is very difficult to conduct, and calling a professional service is a must in most cases. Before the elimination begin, you as a homeowner should take a significant part in the organization. First of all, go ahead an remove all bedding from mattresses. Your next step should be washing them in almost boiling water. Once the treatment is done, wait for about 4 hours before putting bed linens back, or ask PCO for instructions.

Termite control service

Learning about termites can be really helpful if you are eager to understand control, and possibly detect issues, but the termination should be left to professionals. There are various types of termites and every each one of them is treated differently. PCOs have the much-needed expertise, experience, and above all, appropriate equipment for treating this type of pest. Make sure to help by removing all appliances and furniture from areas where PCOs need to approach and do their job.

Final thoughts

As you can see, it won’t be enough just to call the number and exterminate unwanted guests. You’ll need to assist professionals in different ways, and the level of your dedication will affect the whole pest control process. Because of that, get well informed about the procedure you want to engage in and follow the instructions provided by trained professionals. If you manage to build a good partnership with PCOs, the pest treatment has a greater chance to be a successful one.
