DIY Pest Control Tips from Local Pest Control Companies

If you’re struggling with pest problems, you may be able to get rid of them with some of these DIY tactics:

  • Seal entry points. Check for and seal any cracks or gaps in doors, windows, and the foundation of your home.
  • Store food properly. Store food in airtight containers and keep your kitchen clean.
  • Get rid of trash. Keep trash bins covered and dispose of garbage regularly.
  • Fix leaks. Pests are attracted to water sources, so fix any leaking pipes or faucets.
  • Clean up. Vacuum and mop floors regularly to remove food crumbs and other debris. Reduce clutter where pests can hide, especially in basements, attics, and garages. Keep your yard well-maintained by trimming bushes and trees, removing weeds, and keeping grass short.
  • Use natural remedies. Some essential oils like peppermint, lavender, and eucalyptus can repel pests. You can try sprinkling food-grade diatomaceous earth around entry points and other areas to kill insects. Boric acid is effective for controlling ants and cockroaches, but use it with caution around pets and children.
  • Use traps and baits. Use traps for rodents and insects, such as glue traps, snap traps, or electronic traps. Place bait stations for ants, cockroaches, and other insects in areas where they are active.

However, if any of these methods aren’t getting the job done, that’s when you call the Colorado pest pros for your pest control needs.

Residential vs. Commercial Pest Control Services

At Mug-a-Bug Pest & Termite Control, we provide residential and commercial pest control in the Colorado Springs area. While both effectively get rid of pest issues, they differ in some ways, such as the following:

  • Scope and scale. Residential pest control typically focuses on individual homes or apartments. It is done on a smaller scale, often dealing with localized infestations. Commercial pest control covers larger facilities like office buildings, restaurants, and warehouses. It is done on a larger scale, addressing more extensive infestations.
  • Types of pests. In residential areas, common pests include ants, cockroaches, spiders, termites, bedbugs, and rodents. Commercial areas may deal with a broader range of pests, including those that can affect products or operations like birds, flies, and stored product pests.
  • Frequency and intensity of service. Residential pest control often requires less frequent visits, such as quarterly or bi-monthly. Treatments are usually less intensive. Commercial pest control requires regular and often more frequent inspections and treatments. Treatments are more intensive due to the higher risk of infestation affecting business operations.
  • Regulations. With residential pest control, the focus is on safety and proper pesticide use. Commercial pest control requires stricter regulations, including industry-specific standards. Compliance with health and safety standards, record-keeping, and audit requirements is crucial.
  • Approaches and techniques. Residential pest control focuses on eliminating existing pests and preventing future infestations through barrier treatments, baits, traps, and exclusion techniques. Commercial pest control uses integrated pest management (IPM) strategies to manage pests to minimize risk to operations.
  • Cost. Residential pest control is generally less expensive due to the smaller scale and less frequent treatments. Commercial pest control is more expensive because of the larger scale and more frequent treatments.
