About Me
eliminating the pests in your home

Ants, spiders, fleas, mice and silverfish were all problems in my house at one point. When we bought the house, it hadn't been lived in for about three years. Since it was basically abandoned, the pests moved in and made it their homes. The first few months of battling with these pests was the hardest. We had so many different pests to contend with that it was hard to know where to start. With the help of a professional pest control technician, we have taken our home back from those pests and have been living pest free ever since.

It can be a real pain to have to deal with pests of the insect variety. It can be a real sickening feeling finding that you have an infestation of ants or roaches. While it can be a sick feeling, you stop and think of the best ways to get rid of the little pests. There are a few different ways that you are going to be able to get rid of them. If you find that you have been invaded, here are three different methods that you can use to get rid of the insects.

Clean Up

There are times that insects just come into the home, but more often than not, there is a very specific reason that the bugs are going to enter the home. One of the most common reasons that you will see a bug in the home is because there is a source of food. You need to first take a look around the house and do a very good cleaning. Do not just straighten up; make sure you give your house a deep cleaning. If you take away the source of food, you will at least not attract more bugs. 


The use of diatoms to kill bugs is a very effective way to kill these little monsters. Diatoms are made from siliceous material and are very small. The diatom is going to actually absorb some of the lipid from the exoskeleton of the bug and cause it to dehydrate and to die. One of the best things about using diatoms is that they are completely safe for everyone but the bugs. Diatoms are not going to hurt children or even pets. So you can start your battle with these little bugs with some diatoms. You want to find the trail of these bugs and start by applying some of the diatoms to the area that these bugs make a living. 

Hire A Pest Control Service

If you are not able to get a handle on the bug problem, you may decide that you want to hire a professional. The pest control technician will be able to come into the home and assess the situation very quickly. They will first find where the bugs are coming from and then they will start to spray and kill the bugs. The great thing about a pest control service is that they often have a guarantee on their work. Contact a company like Canady's Termite & Pest Control to learn more.
