Address the following issues:
Most often, when people try to find which effective treatments would kill pests on their property, they search online. Without proper research, people could end up using pesticides which could be pretty harmful to you and your family.
Though pesticides kill or control pests, including bacteria, fungi, other organisms, insects, and rodents, they could be potentially harmful when not used properly.
According to a survey, 75% of U.S. households used at least one pesticide product indoors during the past year. When used indoors, this worsens indoor air quality.
Along with pesticides following are other possible sources that cause harm as well:
In households with children under five years old, almost one-half stored at least one pesticide product within reach of children.
Exposure to such pesticides can irritate the eye, nose, and throat, possibly damaging the central nervous system and kidney and increasing the risk of cancer.
Symptoms that one might suffer include headaches, dizziness, muscular weakness, and nausea.
All of this majorly results from when you don’t know which pesticides to use and in what quantity. Most of the time, you don’t even need to use harsh chemicals to kill pests.
Here are a few things you need to remember about using chemicals to avoid exposure:
Most importantly, call a professional to prevent chemicals’ harmful and unnecessary use.
1. Keep your house clean and organized.
2. Avoid any unnecessary pile-up of waste materials of any kind outside the home.
3. Dispose of garbage in a closed bag and put it in a can with a secure lid. Dispose of your waste daily.
4. Avoid accumulation of any water indoors or outdoors.
5. Get any nooks or crannies with spaces in them filled up.
6. Fix any holes in your patio.
7. Keep your doors closed when not in use. Keeping doors and windows closed can get insects to come in easily without notice.
8. Add screens on windows to allow ventilation but not allow any insects to enter.
