Pest Control in Lowell

Dedicated to Quality Service Since 1983

If you live in Lowell, Arkansas, you know that pest control is an important aspect of having a comfortable summer. Especially if you are a new homeowner, navigating the world of Lowell pest control can be a confusing one. To help you out, here are the do’s and don’ts of pest control in your area:

Prevention

Ask any Lowell pest control professional, and they will tell you that prevention is always better than treatment. The most effective way to control pests is to prevent them from invading your home in the first place and to do that, you should hire a reliable pest control company, like McCauley Services. For example, if you see one cockroach in your home, you can be sure that there are dozens more that you cannot see. So, the best way to keep them out of your home is to make your home unappealing to them by keeping food in tightly sealed containers, cleaning your kitchen counters on a daily basis, and not leaving pet food out overnight.

Use Pesticides Safely and Correctly

When used correctly, pesticides can be both safe and effective. If you are ever unsure about which pesticides to use and in what quantity, please ask your local Lowell pest control service. First of all, you should keep children and pets away from any areas where you are using pest control. If you need to use a pesticide in your entire home, keep your pets and/or children entertained outside of your home so that there is no chance that they will interact with the pesticides. Additionally, always follow a pesticide’s directions and never assume that using more than recommended will do a superior job (it will often be redundant).

Invest in Repairs

One of the best things you can do to control pests in your home–and also increase your home’s value–is to invest in repairs. Fixing drafts around your home’s windows and doors, repairing holes in your attic or basement will do far more to fend off pests than a pesticide ever will. A hole or gap the size of a coin will welcome in all kinds of bugs and rodents, so you should take care to repair any holes of this size. You should also ensure that any leaky pipes in your home are attended to and that your appliances don’t leak moisture, which could bolster a cockroach infestation.

DIY With Caution

If you are not a Lowell pest control professional, you should DIY pest control with caution. Many pesticides can be dangerous and complex to use, so many times, it is best to leave pest control to the professionals. If you do want to apply pesticides yourself, please be sure to read the directions on the bottle carefully and do not deviate from them. For example, if a pesticide is intended for outdoor use, do not use it inside, even if you dilute it.
