For many property owners, pest infestations are just a part of life. Insects, rodents and other critters find their way inside and in no time, they take over. So, what is it that keeps homeowners from seeking professional help? For some, it is the cost and for others, it is not wanting to deal with the process of pest control. In the past, most methods of pest control have relied on poisons and other chemical treatments. Luckily. times have changed since then! Instead of offering up one way of getting rid of these unwelcome visitors, Toodaloo has come up with a collection of methods that work.
Steam: Difficult pests like bed bugs are known to be stubborn, so it takes a bit of creativity to get rid of them completely. These bugs have found ways to hide themselves in homes, commercial spaces and strata properties. Plenty of places aren’t keen on having poisons sprayed around their baseboards and floor boards but steam is an effective alternative. Treating hitchhiking insects with steam can help get rid of pest populations without introducing chemicals into your living space.
Physical Traps: It is simple enough to squish a spider but larger animals require physical removal. Squirrels, for example, shouldn’t ever come into contact with poison. While they might still be qualified as rodents, squirrels are still pretty lovable animals. Humane removal is key for any pest control service but our Toodaloo technicians take this the extra mile. Cage traps hold squirrels physically while properties are treated with specialty doors near openings. These one-way doors are a way to drive pests out humanely while preventing them from coming back in.
Deterrents: Instead of fighting off fledgling infestations, keep them from happening by using one of several kinds of deterrents. This is a highly effective way to keep away pigeons and other birds. Spikes, netting and even audio and visual scare tactics can be used to keep birds from nesting on your balconies or in your attic.
Each pest has their own weak spot and it is up to our Toodaloo technicians to find and use these sensitive areas to kick pests to the curb.
