Many of us believe that we can save money by doing things ourselves. In some cases this is true, but think about how easy the "DO IT YOURSELF" television programs make it seem to redo a room or add a deck in one day. Have you ever tried that yourself? It NEVER goes as smooth as they make it seem on TV.
When it comes to pest control you are adding an element of danger because you are dealing with chemicals which, if not used properly, can harm you and your family.
Many people go by the grocery store, hardware store, or the big outlets to pick up pesticides. First of all there is no one in these locations specifically trained and licensed in the use of these chemicals to tell you the proper use. Secondly, most of all the products sold in these stores are designed with the intent of having you come back to buy more.
Do it yourself products purchased in these stores are often supplied in insufficient quantities that cannot do the job properly. There is no guarantee. You put yourself at risk by using them - risk from exposure and risk of not solving your pest problem.
But, if you must do it yourself, then we recommend that you equip yourself properly with the correct safety equipment and the most effective products available on the market. Get educated on doing the job right by dealing with a specialty store such as "Pest Solutions". Pest Solutions is owned and operated by a Licensed Pest Control Operator. They will be able to work with you in guiding you through the procedures for treating your home properly, and be able to provide you some of the same products that are used by the professionals in the Pest Control industry. You can contact Pest Solutions at: 1-888-728-PEST (7378).
Remember that sometimes it is best to pay a professional operator for the years of training and experience that they have when protecting you and your family from pests.
