Pests are not a pleasant thing to have in your home. These pests are creepy, crawly and not a ‘friend’ that you would invite in. This means you have to find a way to rid your home of them and fast. While there are many products, methods, tips and tricks on the market for you to use; professional elimination of the pests is the most efficient, cost effective and safest way to go about removing them completely and keeping them away.
However, if you feel that you want to try different methods for eliminating the pests from your home prior to calling a professional; here are some tips and tricks you’re able to use.
Pest Control Products
There are many products that can be used at home, and purchased from the nearest department store. Keep in mind, when not used properly, these chemicals and products can become dangerous and pose a health hazard. In order to keep everyone safe and sound, make sure to hire a professional that can properly dispense the chemicals.
Riddex – One of the more popular, and most known products on the market, Riddex can come in a formula spray form or a plug form. The plug transmits sounds that keep rodents and other pests away while the spray or ‘bomb’s’ as they are sometimes called can provide the chemicals needed to fully clear the home of the pests. While Riddex may work for that initial sweep, for the most part, the pests can come back month after month, causing you to keep bombing the home using the chemicals. The pests may also develop an immunity to the products being used.
RAID – RAID is a common product that many people use. It works somewhat the same way that the chemical from of Riddex does. You spray it throughout the home or set them bombs off to slowly allow the chemicals to go through the home while you’re not there. This is supposed to suffocate and kill the pests throughout the home, but much like Riddex, pests can become immune to it and they may come back month after month.
CatchMaster – These small little huts bring the pests into them with the promise of food. Some of the products have a sticky paper on them which holds them until they die. Others provide the food they seek, with poison in it. They then bring the poisoned food back to the others and share it. This causes them all to disperse and die. These might be unsightly throughout the home, and the pests may become immune to the poison or catch on to using them.
Pest Control Methods
There are so many methods out there for removing pests from the home. By considering the options, weighing the pros and cons and then deciding which is right for you; you’re able to have a cleaner, pest free home in no time.

You want to make the best decision that you possibly can about removing the pests from your home.
