by Ross Barkely Blogger

Do you ever wonder how those pest control services kill those creepy-crawlies? Many, if not most, of us have already found pests in our existence. Some of us might not consider it an infestations unless it causes damage to our home. Thus, having one or two roaming around is still considered normal rather than detrimental (although it's not hygienic). However, at some point these pests seem to multiply themselves in no time or call out the whole clan to have a vacation in your house/property, or observe your home as their future home basically, trying to oust you from your own territory. Well, they could quite well perform that if you fail to manage the issue. Best point to do is call up pest control services. These are some of the methods that these services use to help you get rid of those unwanted guests:

1. nonchemical Pest Control.

If you are apprehensive to use pesticides to clear the pests out because you love mother world and are scared it could harm you and your family, pest control services do offer non-chemical ways. One of these is using non-chemical answer like insecticidal soap and additional nonchemical solutions, using sticky barriers or traps. It all depends what kind of pests you would like to get rid of. If it's rats, traps are better because you catch them alive rather than feeding them poison food and risk having their lifeless bodies scattered just about everywhere -- not something you would like especially when the rat decides to perish in a place that is hard to find and you are left with no choice but to bear the foul smell.

2. Chemical Pest Control.

There are times when pest control services would suggest using chemical pest control because it's the very best alternative. This method is best used by a professional to avoid harmful effects. One of the known ways is definitely fumigation or tenting. This is used especially when the pests are concentrated inside a homely house or a building. The whole building will be "tented" or sealed and a fumigant will be sprayed inside to suffocate the pests.

3. Biological Methods.

This is a new alternative for controlling pests especially in agriculture. However, it can be used by gardeners and property owners, too. When dealing with insect pests for example, pest control services would suggest that you raise organisms such as predators, parasitoids and pathogens and release it in suitable amounts to kill the pests. These organisms are natural enemies of pests. Examples of predators are lady beetles and lace wings. Parasitoids are those microorganisms that live in the host and could kill the host at a significant number; while pathogens are bacteria, fungi or viruses.

These are only few of the various methods that pest control services use to help you get rid pests in your home. You should always use something that suits your present situation rather than choosing something cheap which is not effective or using something expensive thinking that it is best but is not suitable. If you are unsure, call a professional. There are plenty of pest control services out there.
