Don’t DIY

You may be tempted to buy do it yourself pesticides at your local hardware store so that you can rid your house of bugs on your own. Before you make that decision, please ask yourself the following questions. Our expert answers these questions:

How much are these products going to cost?
Have I correctly identified the pest that I want to treat?
How much time will I spend on research to determine the correct pesticides and application methods to use?
Are the off-shelf products as effective as the products used by a professional?
Can I be certain that I am treating the problem correctly?
Do I want to go into my crawl space?
Would I be better off having a professional take care of my pest problem?
