Why DIY Pest Control In Your Opelika Home Is A Waste Of Time & Money

August 21, 2020


Are you a go-getter, or a do it yourself kind of person, as many people are? It is healthy to want to fix problems around your home. Not only does it save money, but it also brings about a sense of accomplishment when the job gets done.  Now, as good as DIY feels, everyone has something they refuse to do themselves. For some, it is plumbing repair, for others, it may be electrical. There is always something that is too dirty or complicated to do on your own. Today we will be talking about pest control and why it might be one of those DIY things you might not want to do on your own.

The Types Of Pests That Invade Homes

It would take a long time to individually describe each of the pests found here in Opelika, Alabama. Thankfully, all pests cause one or more of the same three problems. We like to call these categories disturbance, danger, and destruction. Most pests that live here in Opelika fall under the disturbance category. Flies, centipedes, and stink bugs are all great examples of creatures that are just plain annoying. Add danger into the mix, and more pests join in such as bees, wasps, and cockroaches. These types of creatures are not just irritating but also a threat to both people and animals. Finally, there is destruction. Most notable in this category are rodents and termites. Of these two, rodents fit all three categories and are one of the worst pests you could have inside your home. Termites, on the other hand, are just destructive with the way they chew through wood.

How Homeowners Try To Deal With Pests

The internet is full of websites that give suggestions on how to eliminate or prevent pests. 90% of the websites you find do not provide enough information for you to handle pest control on your own. On top of this, the sites that do give solid tips and tricks only provide answers to specific pests. Find a website that talks about ant prevention and follow everything perfectly, and you might stop ants, but the cockroaches, rodents, and flies in your home will not go away. Long story short, each pest is unique and requires different strategies for prevention. If you have the time to study pests and the money to buy the equipment and the high-quality treatments needed to handle them on your own, go for it. If not, your best bet is to hire a professional.
