Pest Control Near Me in Orrs Island
Pest control and management refers to any system or measure that seeks to eliminate or regulate the population of insects considered harmful to human and animal health and the environment. Pest control in Orrs Island ME requires a lot of work and resources but it is a necessity, especially for homes. Here are the reasons why pest management is important and why every homeowner should consider applying it:
1. Preventing damage to homes and structures
In the U.S., people spend about $5 billion for the repair of damages caused by termite infestation. Termites consume wood and wood products such as ply-board and paper. Once they have burrowed into the wood components of the home, they can eat beams, floorings and walls from the inside. This makes the structure weak and vulnerable to collapse, leaving household members at a risk. Termite infestation can be especially problematic in older homes and structures that have not been treated. In areas where termites are known pests, managing a home to keep it safe from termites requires constant vigilance and assistance from pest control agencies.
2. Preventing allergies
Pests can cause a range of issues in people, such as skin allergies, asthma and other respiratory problems. Bed bugs and mosquitoes, for example, are notorious for causing skin rashes. Pests can also carry certain allegens that can cause strong allergic reactions in some people. Cockroaches, for example, can cause allergies in at least 7% of the population. They are also one of the leading causes of asthma in children.
3. Avoiding diseases and other health risks
Leprosy, skin infections, urinary tract infections, Lyme disease, intestinal infections, dysentery, dengue, malaria and food poisoning are just a few of the diseases and health problems that pests can cause. They also carry a number of bacteria and viruses that can affect human and animal health. Although many of these diseases are treatable, they can cause serious health issues in children, the elderly and immune-compromised individuals, many of whom will require professional medical treatment or hospitalization. That, in turn, can translate to millions of dollars in medical costs.
4. Preventing damage and deterioration of furniture, carpets and clothes
Pest control has to be applied in order to save furniture, carpets and clothing and avoid the expenses associated with repairs and replacements. Burrowing insects are notorious for causing damage to the wooden and fabric components of furniture. Some, such as carpet bugs, moths, cockroaches and silverfish are also attracted to fabric, often using it as a source of food.
5. Maintenance of food supply
Food supply is critical to the survival of the world’s populations. On a macro economic level, it also influences the world’s economies and supports majority of today’s active industries. Without proper pest management, almost 20% of our food supply will be wasted due to consumption of rodents. Each year, millions of dollars’ worth of food is lost to rodent attacks and infestation. By controlling the threat, it is possible to keep food supplies at manageable and useful levels. On the Orrs Island Maine home-front, implementing pest control measures can help prevent food waste and contamination. Pests do not only consume food, they also leave behind undesirable organic matter such as dead skin, body parts, feces and urine, all of which can affect the quality of the food we eat.

Some Common Q & A’s
Other Than An Using A Pest Control Service, What Is The Best Solution For Treating Silver Fish?
We Need Products That Are &Quot;Pet Safe&Quot;.
I always refer to my favorite pest control website from the University of California, Davis http://ipm.ucdavis.edu/PMG/PESTNOTES/pn7...
This is for silverfish and reiterates what the other answerers said. Clean, dry, plug holes, get rid of water source... It looks like you can use boric acid (which I think is fairly harmless to us) or diatomaceous earth which is totally harmless to us except when inhaling it in LARGE amounts. Anywho, check it out!

Those are catchy, but probably most people will look to see a regular name such as John's Pest control. Using logo's such as I and the others have shown would be catchy, but as a name may alienate the older customer and think that you are a fly-by-night company.
Does Anyone Have Any Ideas For Humane Pest Control?
We Have Rats In The Walls, So A Sonic Pest Deterrant Won'T Help (It Doesn'T Penetrate Walls). Any Ideas Are Welcome. Thanks!
Ok , so I am a licensed pest controller and here is some free advice:
If you can afford it call a pest controller.Tell him or her you want these rats live trapped ie. no snap traps,tracking powder,liquid/solid bait etc. Many pest control companies I know offer a service like this, we don't kill everything, BUT, this means YOU will have to do some of the work, ie checking the traps min.1 time every 24 hours to prevent the animal from wasting and to reduce the actual time the pest controller has to service your home. Once a rat is caught either A) Call the PCO (pest controller) he/she will take the rat a considerable distance to a legal release area. B) Remove the rat to an area across a major body of water (river) or several miles away and release where you LEGALLY can (your responsibility to know where that is!!!).Many municipalities are quietly banning relocation of any animals due to disease issues and lowered survival rates in many relocated animals.
Be aware, rats are VERY smart this WILL be a process spanning over several days or weeks. The traps may sit unset and baited for several days just to begin.
If you do this solo,research food bait types (to trap him/her),trap types,how to rodent proof your home to minimize REINFESTATION, and PRAY mama did'nt have babies. Have an odor contingency plan (if the babies are orphaned) etc. ie. Do your homework!
Sonic Pest controllers are a waste of money. Research has shown they work.....for up to 3 days after which the rodents become indifferent to the sound.Yes I can tell you I have a customer who had a field and deer mouse problem, and found a nest within 4 feet of his sonic device in his garage .(thanks for the business)
Side note: mousing/ratting is my "thing" and still longest time to trap a solitary male rat= 4 weeks in a restaurant the size of a corner bar. Last, I'll spare you the disease spiel but you do NOT want the infection I got from inhaling rodent urine in crawlspaces, know what your getting into. Hope this helps
