Yes, you can do pest control yourself. But just because you can, that doesn’t mean you should. Doing it yourself can become time consuming, costly, and even dangerous in certain conditions.
DIY Pest Control can be Time Consuming
The first key to successful pest control is proper identification of the pest. This may seem easy, but it’s not always clear to the non-expert just what you’re dealing with. And if you can’t determine what pest(s) you have, you can’t determine the best course of treatment.
It can take quite a lot of time to research and figure out what pest control methods are best for the pests you have. And if your first attempt doesn’t work, you have to start the process all over.
DIY can be More Costly than Hiring a Professional
Using the wrong treatments because you haven’t correctly identified the pest is a waste of both time and money. And not getting treating the actual problem can let it get worse, too.
The longer it takes to control the pests, the more damage they can be doing to your home. Damage that becomes costly to repair.
DIY Pest Control can be Dangerous
And then there’s the treatment itself. Pest control chemicals can be dangerous. Some require professional training and/or certification. If you don’t have the expertise to safely use the chemicals, you put yourself and the rest of your family at risk.
Professionals also are trained on how to safely deal with venomous spiders and other insects. They know how to protect themselves from disease-carrying rodents.
Most homeowners simply don’t have the expert-level skill and knowledge to safely and effectively control unwanted pests.
