Here are the 3 Most Effective Pest Control Methods

Unfortunately, pests come in such a wide variety of forms that it can seem nearly impossible to rid your space of pests, especially if you don’t know where to begin. You will be pleased to know that there are some simple things you can do to prevent pest problems and to get existing pest problems under control. Want to know how? Here are the three most effective pest control methods:
Call Us for Emergency Pest Control Service
Prevention. In order to prevent pest infestations, you must first determine which pests you wish to protect your home against. You need to understand their breeding cycles, what they feed on, which environments they thrive in, and how they go about entering a home.
Once you have armed yourself with that necessary knowledge, you can go ahead with the prevention process. Prevention is a simple concept, but it takes some thought and effort.
First, you must cut off all points of entry. Depending on the pest, this could mean applying weather stripping to doors, caulking cracks and crevices in the wall, and/or sealing gaps in window openings.
Next, you must ensure that you aren’t providing a food source for pests. Again, do your research here. Lastly, your home environment should not be conducive to pest breeding. For example, many pests thrive in warm, damp areas; therefore, you should eliminate that type of environment in your home.

Baiting. No matter what pest you are trying to get rid of, there is bait for that, and you can buy pest baits at almost any hardware, home improvement, or chain retail department store. The concept of baiting is simple: you put out the poison that smells and tastes good to pests.
The pests come in for a feast, bringing leftovers back to the entire colony. The colony eats up, and eventually, every critter in the group is poisoned dead. Grim? Maybe. Effective? Yes.

Fumigation. This is another product that you can purchase at just about any major store near you. Fumigation is the process of releasing a noxious substance in the air, in order to kill every pest that breathes in that air. Fumigating is super simple, but you must be able to completely close off the space that you will be fumigated in order to make it air tight . . . and you must stay away for a length of several hours (or, whatever the manufacturer recommends).
You can use these techniques for pest control in your home, or you may contact competent professionals like us.

Borax is a great insect poison. If you have roaches in the house, sprinkle it where you know they hang out (and where you know children and/or animals won’t be playing). For ants, mix borax with sugar and sprinkle the mixture around the perimeter of your foundation. The sugar will attract the ants, and the borax will poison them.
Yellow Jackets Are Buzzing Everywhere
Pests need food to survive. What’s more is that they are often invited into your home by the pleasant scent of food. Make sure there are no food sources that can attract pests in your home.
Squirrels may be a major thorn in your side. They spend enormous amounts of time eating and digging in your garden (or bird feeder) - but what can you do?
You can take major steps and set out poison, but that has its drawbacks.
You can try and trap them, but that has its drawbacks too.
Or, you can try and repel them with simple things found around your house.
People have found all types of things that can be used for repelling squirrels, but as with all things - some work for some people and not for others.
If one home remedy does not work, try another. As said earlier, some people have more success with some than others.
As a last resort, there are commercial repellents which you can buy at your local hardware store. These obviously will cost more but are a stronger repellent and may have a better effect.

Remember that most pests thrive in dank environments. Go through your home and do your best to make sure you’re not hosting a pest hot-spot. Every space, even those you don’t see on a day-to-day basis, should have ample ventilation and should be free of standing water.
There are many kinds of pests that you can bring into your house from the wet market. Moths, weevils, beetles, and cockroaches are just some of the many pests that you might unwittingly bring with you into your hearth and home. Flower arrangements, decorative dried corn cobs, cake mix, chocolates, spices, mouse and rat bait, cookies, crackers, granola bars, and other foodstuffs are some of the things that can invite pests to lodge in your home. However, since these things are necessary, being food or household items in daily use---indoor pest control is needed to ensure that you and your family remain safe from pests.
If these foods are improperly stored or are kept for a long period of time, pest eggs can hatch in the food containers themselves without your knowing it. Here are some tips you can follow to help as pests control:
When infested with moths, weevils, or beetles, emptying all drawers, cabinets and pantries of any possible infested item helps to prevent the spread of the infestation. Containers or items which are a possible source of the infestation must be cleaned or gotten rid of. Putting items into Tupperware containers, air-tight canisters, or zip-lock plastic bags help prevent these pests from getting into them. If you wish to save foodstuff that you think might be infested, placing them in the fridge for five to ten days will kill the pests that might be residing in them. Ensuring that canned goods' rims are cleaned, and that the sides and edges of jar lids are cleaned ensure that pests cannot reside in them.
Common pantry pests are highly irritating and annoying, especially if they infest a household. However, one can easily manage to eradicate these pesky critters by following some of the simple tips stated above. When infested with the flour moth, the first, second, and third step may be undertaken. However, there are some exceptions, such as in the case of still hatching pupae. By cutting down on the pesticides until they hatch, you have a better chance of killing them.
If still your pest problems persist, contact an integrated pest management service. They will gladly assist you in eradicating your bane once and for all!

If you find that your home is already host to a pest colony, then you can take some do-it-yourself measures to rid your home of the pests by baiting them. Simply purchase the appropriate bait at any local hardware store and follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
The most common cause of mosquito infestation is standing water outside. This could be anything from the kiddie pool behind the house to that tiny puddle of water in your driveway. Any water that has been sitting for a long period of time in a mosquito zone will become a mosquito breeding ground at one point or another. Investigate your yard for culprits and clean them up immediately.
The Mountain Pine Beetle (MPB) is a bark beetle that destroys the cambium layer and introduces the blue stain fungus into Ponderosa, Lodgepole, Scotch and Limber pine trees. It is fatal to most trees when attacks are successful. The beetle itself is small, about 1/8 to 1/3" in length, and brown to black in color. They have wings as adults and fly from tree to tree. The best way to tell if a tree has been affected by MPB is to look for the "popcorn" like yellow mounds of sap jutting from the trees bark. These are also called "hits" or "pitch tubes". The tree is literally pitching the beetles out using sap that flows out profusely when the cambium is damaged. It can be very effective in repelling successful attacks.
MPB hatch inside of host trees as larvae that tunnel horizontally out from the mothers vertical chamber and feed in the phloem. They overwinter in a chemical induced state that fills their bodies with a substance resembling anti-freeze. As winter ends they continue to tunnel and feed before entering the pupae stage. Emerging as adult beetles they exit the trees and fly to another host tree guided by pheromones released from other beetles and the trees themselves. When they find a suitable host they drill in through the bark and create a vertical chamber in the phloem. They lay eggs and die. Repeat.
Trees that are "successfully" attacked will not survive. A successful attack implies that one or more beetles have penetrated into the phloem and laid eggs. When this happens they commonly vector the blue stain fungus which rapidly spreads through the trees cambium and chokes the vascular system inhibiting water and nutrient flow, which is fatal. The only exception is the Scotch pines. Only since about 2005 have they become targets of MPB along the front range of Colorado. Since then the number of Scotch pines attacked by MPB has been growing at an alarming rate. The good news is that they tend to withstand a number of hits over several years without absolute death. Many do die, but proper care will often keep mortality in check for sometime.
Solar treatments can also be done. This involves heating the trees to a temperature of at least 111 degrees F under the bark. It is very labor intensive.
Thinning: Trees should be spaced properly so that they have ample access to soil, water and light. When the forest is too thick the trees cannot be healthy. Have a professional make recommendations for your property.
OTHER IMPORTANT ISSUES:
Some other issues to consider as a tree owner are Ips Beetle, other engraver beetles, twig borers and Zimmerman Moth. For the purpose of protecting the majority of lodgepole and ponderosa pines along the lower foothills of Colorado we are mainly concerned with Ips Beetle, which will kill trees in a hurry if attacked. The main difference when managing Ips is that of timing. While MPB has one generation per year the Ips can have as many as 7. They fly as early as late March and as late as November. This requires two trunk sprays timed early April and again in mid July to early August in order to appropriately protect trees.
What does this mean for you and your trees?
If you are concerned about Ips then we advise the twice annual approach to protecting your pines. If you have not seen and are not concerned about Ips Beetle in your area then once annually, mid April through mid June, will suffice.
