As the world changes, we see more and more residential and commercial areas being built in and around Birmingham City. Along with new restaurants, takeaways and public areas, pest infestations are on the rise. Council budget cuts have resulted in free of charge pest control services in Birmingham being reduced and, in some cases, completely removed. This has resulted in many homes and businesses having to find alternative ways to rid their properties of pests.
Prevention Better Than Cure
Prevention is always better than cure, so taking certain pest control precautions is the best preventative measure you can take:
- Remove sources of food and water
- Make sure any foods which are left out are covered and sealed in a container
- Keep outside areas clean and tidy, removing waste as soon as possible
- Cover any holes or areas in which a pest may like to make its nest
Have those pests still managed to make themselves at home? OK, depending on the type of pest you have in the property will determine the best course of action. If it is a new infestation which has taken hold, then there are products which can be bought in the shops or from local vets which can help. Pesticides, natural sprays and powders and other bait traps, can all be used to try and treat the problem. However, most shops bought products will not be as effective as the products available to professional pest controllers.
