Choosing the Right Pest Control Product
When shopping for pest control products, start by focusing on the options that are designed for the type of pest you are hoping to eliminate. Some insecticides and traps are intended only for one type of pest like ants or spiders, while others are effective against a wide range of pests. In addition to chemical pest control solutions, you can also find ultrasonic repellents. The product names and descriptions will give you insight into what types of pests each option can address. These battery-operated products emit sounds that humans cannot hear but are unpleasant to rodents and other pests.
Preventing Insect Bites Outdoors
Experts recommend wearing insect repellent when you'll be outdoors in order to reduce the risk of insect bites. Like pest control products, insect repellents are typically formulated to ward off one or more types of pests. Most mosquito repellents are effective for up to 4 hours, while most tick repellents remain effective for up to 6 hours. As you compare products, be sure to keep who will be using the formula in mind. Specialty insect repellents are available for babies, children and adults with sensitive skin.
Using Pest Control Products Safely
Whether you're purchasing a pest control product or an insect repellent, it's important that you use the product correctly. The manufacturer will provide instructions regarding how to properly use the product. Be sure to read the directions carefully and follow them exactly for best results.
