Pest control 2012

By Sylvia Lambert Subscribe to RSS | March 13th 2012 | Views:

Insects, rodents, and other creatures do not belong in homes and residential communities. But, as species of nature, they instinctively wander into any place open to them. pest control is meant to manage or prevent the danger or nuisance that the presence of such animals causes. Pest control services uses a variety of methods to control, reduce, and eliminate such unwanted life forms in order to facilitate peaceable living conditions in a community.

Most people are aware of some of the basic pest control measures. Poison bait, for example, is commonly used to exterminate rat populations. Traps are another form of rodent control; such traps can be easily used to remove rats and mice from the home. The snap trap utilizes a trigger to hold bait, and kills the rodent by striking it behind the head with a wire rod or jaw. Glue traps are used to hold the rodent when it crosses the trap until the trap-setter is able to kill or dispose of the rodent. Live catch traps enable one to catch more than one rodent at a time, allowing the home owner to release the rat from the trap and out-of-doors if desired.

Many individual home owners have had to deal with rodents. And poisons and traps are familiar to most persons who have had to do so. However, rats are not the only kind of pest that can be dealt with by using pest control measures and services. The method of biological pest control can be used to control and manage natural predators and parasites. The mosquito, for example, is a particularly troublesome pest that tends to live in hot and humid climates. This creature can not only be worrisome but dangerous, as it is known to spread virus and disease. Using biological pest control measures, mosquitoes can be controlled by putting a bacterium that infects and kills mosquito larvae in local water sources. The treatment has no known negative consequences on the remaining ecology and is safe for humans to drink.

Spraying poisons by planes, hand held units, or trucks that carry the spraying equipment, is another common method of pest control. In rural communities crop dusters fly over farmland and spray poison to kill off pest that would threaten the crops. And in many exceptionally dry, hot, or humid suburban areas local pest control services use trucks to deploy the same kinds of pest poisons. Pest control services employ different methods in more urban areas. In these regions, it is indoors spaces that tend to need treatment. In furtherance of this aim, one typically finds fumigation used. Fumigation is a project which requires that a structure be covered or sealed airtight followed by the introduction of a penetrating, deadly gas at a killing concentration a long period of time (24-72hrs). Although expensive, space fumigation targets all life stages of pests.

No matter the kind of intruder there are pest control measures to deal with it. The key is to get the right pest control services on the job.
