When any animal decides to use your home, outbuilding or yard as a resting place, or as a source of food, it can be annoying and expensive. Annoying as it can disturb your home life with noise, dangers and stress, expensive due to damage, removal costs and loss of time spent tackling the issue. It can lead to them stinking up the place, eating your flowers and/or vegetables and in some instances an unwanted guest can even end up causing health issues due to the animals using your property and surrounding area as a – to put it politely- washroom.
Attic and loft pests such as bats, mice, rats, racoons, squirrels — and even birds — can be a real bad experience for any homeowner. They cause a mess, a stink, and can really damage your home’s roof and or ceilings, which — as we all know — are essential parts of any building, especially your roof!
A weakened or damaged roof can result in major problems, including leaks, and even the whole or partial collapse of the structure (Also possible for ceilings that are wet from urine and/or pest poop).
When you can no longer ignore the need to act against an annoying, disease carrying, even dangerous pest, it can be confusing as to which pesticide you should use. What chemical or substance should you use to take the fight to the pests in your life? This is no more so apparent as of late, where more and more people are thinking of taking the green option for their pest control needs. Should you use natural or synthetic pesticides and before you shake your head and give up, don’t worry, you are not the only person confused as to if one is better and safer than the other.
