A pest is any troublesome organism that causes discomfort to the host, usually a person. Pests vary in size. Some are small while some are microscopic. They have different ways of attacking their host. Some suck blood e.g. mosquitoes, fleas, and many others while some feed on the food stored by the host in stores and kitchens e.g. rats, mice and cockroaches. These animals must be controlled with immediate effect to avoid further problems. They come with serious health problems. The Pest Control Miami have come up with various ways of controlling the pests. The method employed depends on the level of infestation and the availability of resources as well.
It’s the most common method of pest control. It entails the real use of chemicals called pesticides in pest control. These pesticides come in different formulations. They can be in powder, emulsions, suspensions, solutions, tablets or powder form. There are also different methods of applications of these chemicals such as spraying, sprinkling, coating and drenching.
There is also a different class of pesticides that are applied or introduced to the body system of the host to keep off pests. These chemicals are called systemic chemicals. Systemic chemicals are not so common in Miami because the safety of the host after their application is not guaranteed. They have been believed to cause secondary infections in cases of severe usage.
The modes of actions of these chemicals are also different. There are those that kill the pest while some just repel. Some chemicals have strong, pungent smell while others are odorless but poisonous.
This is another popular method of pest control used in Miami. It employs many methods e.g.;
- Using water: Water is an important pest exterminator! It has been used from time to wash off the pests and their young ones. It also makes places damp and thus a condition unfavorable to many pests.
- Use of heat: Heat is a life threat. When pests are exposed to heat, they will not survive. They will either run for their lives or succumb. This can be used as steam, heat waves or hot water.
- Exposure to light: Ever heard of this old phrase, ‘confused like a cockroach exposed to light’? Well, you now know what am talking about. Villains hate exposure!
Here, pests are manually removed from hosts either by handpicking or using special tools. It’s an ideal mechanism where life has to be conserved.
