Pests are drawn to dark, moist places that provide shelter, food and breeding grounds. Eliminating all of these factors will greatly reduce the risk of a pest infestation. Regularly cleaning and sanitising your kitchen, pantry and garbage cans will limit the supply of food to pests. Regularly raking and turning the soil in your garden will keep the area dry, making it less attractive to insects, spiders and centipedes. Placing a layer of mulch around the base of shrubs and trees will help prevent moisture from seeping into the ground and making it an inviting place for pests to hide. 

In addition, pests are often attracted to food scraps and other sources of nutrients. Keeping garbage cans closed and removing rotting fruit and vegetables will help to reduce the availability of food to pests. 

Traps can be effective, but you need to be able to regularly check and empty them to avoid overpopulation. Baits are another option, but you will need to choose the right bait for your pest problem and place it in regions where pests are active. Some traps may be hazardous to children and pets, so it is important to place them out of reach from these vulnerable family members. 

A fogging pest control method uses a ULV (ultra-low volume) machine to spread a fine mist of pesticides in infested areas. It is an alternative to using sprays and dust, and it can be very useful in controlling mosquitoes, flies, ants and moths. 

The key to success with any of these pest control methods is to ensure that the pesticides are used correctly. It is also important to only use pesticides that are designed for the specific pest you want to control. Always read and follow the label instructions carefully, particularly the safety warnings. If you are unsure of how to use pesticides safely, it is best to leave this to the professionals. 

Attempting to use pesticides yourself can be dangerous and result in illness or even death. A pest control technician has the necessary training and knowledge to make sure that any products they use will be safe for you, your pets and your family. They will also have the proper equipment to get the job done without putting any of your loved ones in danger. They can also give you a guarantee that they will be able to control the pest problem and stop it from returning.
