Generation Z is officially here, millennials are everywhere, old fashion is now new fashion, and veganism and eco-friendly living are now the cool things to do. Smartphones enable us to access news and information immediately which is leading to more information on better choices to live; hence, the growth of organic products all over your house.
At some point, you may end up sharing your space with some unfortunate pesty tenants including mice and cockroaches. Pest control usually means nasty toxic chemicals being used in and around your living and cooking spaces, which is terribly unhealthy for you and your family. However, eco-friendly cleaning and pest control products can ensure that you never have to share your home with unwanted critters again.
Keeping on top of your cleaning is essential, especially in food preparation, eating, and disposal areas of your home. Pests won’t stay if there is no access to food or leftovers in your home. An important (and normally missed) part of your home is where you dispose of your food remains, so make sure your bin/recycling areas inside and outside your home are clean and well-maintained to avoid pests coming in the first place or being able to set up camp in your home.
The best way of doing this in the safest and most humane manner is to use eco-friendly cleaning products. There are great products out there, and they don’t have to break the bank. There are ways of making and using these products yourself from household items like white wine vinegar or citrus fruit like lemons and limes. These non-toxic alternatives are worth using.
Eco-Friendly Pest Control
There are lots of methods you can try first that will hopefully do the trick before needing to bring in the experts. Sometimes old school is better. Rat traps are more effective and more humane than poison, while sticky boards are better than chemical boxes. There are so many ways of using eco-friendly pest control methods that it becomes too hard an argument to still believe that putting poison or chemicals in your kitchen and living spaces is the way to deal with pests–it really isn’t!
If In Doubt, Call In The Professionals
If you have tried everything and nothing seems to be having any positive impact or control on your pest situation, then it is always best to call in the Pest Control experts to use their professional techniques to de-bug your home and rid you of any infestations or nests. There are companies out there who offer eco-friendly methods, which are the best ways to fight the pests while keeping you and your home healthy and free from nasty poisons or chemicals.
Just remember that you don’t want to be living or eating in an environment with chemicals and poison in the open, so always use natural products and eco-friendly methods to ensure bugs and pests are not at home in your home.
