Why You Should Never Treat Nuisance Pests Yourself

Pests are a growing issue in the UK and many people do not realise how harmful it can be to try and treat the problem yourself. Home or ‘DIY’ pest control solutions often end up being a worse and more expensive problem than they were originally, so it is practical and financially beneficial to call on our professional pest control services. Here are some reasons you should never try to treat nuisance pests yourself.

The chemicals can be dangerous

BPCAWhen you get our professional service to come into your home, we know all about the chemicals we are using and how we advise you to live around them. Pest control services in the UK are regulated and there are laws prohibiting certain chemicals from being used. Home kits can contain dangerous chemicals and it only takes using too much accidentally or not using the product to the exact instructions for something quite nasty to happen. You also do not get the PPE (personal protection equipment) that a proper company would have. 

They are ineffective

If you have found a control product on the shelf the likelihood is that it is not going to be strong enough to actually treat the problem. Pests like bees can be incredibly stubborn and hard to get rid of and the reason people tend not to try this with home products is because the pests actually get immune to the chemicals. A professional service will constantly upgrade their chemicals depending on effectiveness.

It can end up more expensive

Trying a DIY solution that does not work will leave you more out of pocket than if you had just called a professional company in the first place. Chemicals can be damaging to parts of your home if not used correctly so you could even end up facing repair charges as well. When the home product turns out to be ineffective you may be tempted to try different ones and spend more. Our professional service will be effective every time, so it makes sense to spend your money with us.
