Can I DIY insect pest control?
For some insect pests, the DIY route works. If the infestation is small or caught early, over-the-counter pest control products can solve the problem.
However, insect pests can build up a resistance to shop-bought products – and they may not tackle larger infestations. What’s more, pests like bees and wasps need professional removal and, in the case of bees, rehoming.
Is pest control safe for pets, children and livestock?
Some pest control products aren’t safe for humans and other animals. However, all of the solutions we use at Pest Stop Boys are designed with health and safety in mind, giving you peace of mind that pets, children and livestock will be safe from harm.
How can I prevent insect pests from entering my property?
Your property may be spotlessly clean, but insects can enter any business or home through the tiniest of gaps and breed quickly once they’re there. In gardens and farms, as you’d expect, it’s near impossible to keep insects away completely (and many insect types are actually highly beneficial for growth!)
There are things you can do to minimise the risk of infestations, though. Keeping spaces clear of foodstuffs and open waste will mean that your property is less attractive to insect pests, while gardeners and farmers can go for approaches like planting crops alongside plant species that attract predatory insects.
Will the insect pests return once the treatment is complete?
There is no guarantee that pests won’t return to your property, garden or farm – but Pest Stop Boys offers a range of insect-proofing methods to protect against this happening. Whether it’s pheromone monitoring pads, insect monitoring systems or bait stations, we’ll offer solutions and our expert advice to keep insects that are pests away.
Are all insects pests? No, not at all – but those that are can breed quickly and cause damage, health issues and distress. To find out more about insects as pests, take a look at our insects pest control and bees & wasps pest control.
