As with many procedures, there are steps to getting rid of the pests that invade our homes and plague our families. Sadly, the use of dangerous chemicals is not only a threat to the pests and insects, but to your pets and family, as well. That’s why a lot of people are going organic these days. But it’s not always enough to just hold up the can of insecticide and push the button – organic or not. If the correct steps are not taken the correct results cannot be expected. This is why people hire professional exterminators and pest-control companies. Below are some fly control tips by Arbico Organics and other facts regarding pest-control.
#5 You Must Control Adults
There are several lines of defense when it comes to controlling the adult fly population. Specifically there are fly defense systems made holistically for pets or livestock, sticky tape that attracts flies in the closed or semi enclosed environments and fly traps that operate on solar power, which attract and destroy adult flies.
#4 Control Maggots
Fleas, termites, caterpillars, gnats, cockroaches, grubs, ants and fly larvae can all figure into controlling a household pest problem. Without controlling maggots and insects in their developmental stages, you cannot hope to get a handle on any infestation.
#3 Control The Attraction
One would think that this is common sense, but you’d be surprised at how many people give flies every opportunity to be attracted and breed… and then complain of a fly problem. Garbage is of course a huge factor. If you have a dog that defecates in your yard and don’t clean up after them, you could also be attracting flies, bees and more. By keeping things in airtight containers and bagging up garbage and other attractants whenever necessary, you can diminish the attraction of flies and other household pests.
#2 Biological Fly Control
The procedure is known as fly eliminators and they work in any number of ways. During the fly season, every 3 ½ weeks or so these fly eliminators release their patented control method. Essentially they eliminate flies, in their pupal stage. The ‘eliminators’ literally make a meal of them.
#1 Watch Specifically For The Word Organic
If you don’t read labels carefully in this day and age you probably never will. Just because something claims to be safe for pets and your family that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t make absolutely sure that it is. Accidental poisonings happen in the home every day and it simply isn’t necessary to use these harsh chemicals to control household pests. Long before the fancy mixing and matching of chemicals came into existence, people were getting rid of household pests without them.
Air, water, wildlife, pets, and of course people can suffer side effects from many of the harmful and sometimes caustic chemicals used in nonorganic pesticides. Some of these side effects can cause cancer, ADHD, autism, birth defects and have even been responsible for wiping out a certain animal or insect entirely. Though a nuisance to us, small pests and insects are the sole source of nutrition, for other mammals and animals. If we’re going to save the earth we’re going to have to save everything
