Call Pest Control Professionals Instead of Using Products on Your Own

Pests come in all shapes and sizes, from tiny bed bugs to large racoons or birds in your home. When you have pests in your home, it’s important to hire a professional to deal with them. While there are products on the market that you can use on your own, these products don’t tend to work as well. There are three main products, bait traps, live animal traps and sprays. Below is some information about each one, as well as why you should prefer to work with a professional.

Bait Traps

The pest control paraparaumu residents often use first for insects in their home are bait traps. While these can work well, they’re not going to completely rid your home of pests. They can also get quite expensive, as they will have to be replaced at least every month, depending on the infestation of your home. They also have to be carefully hidden so pets and young children don’t get to them.


Live Animal Traps

Live animal traps are meant for larger animals, such as birds, racoons, possums, and more. While they do catch the animals humanely, it can take a while. It’s also very easy to catch cats or dogs in them instead of the pest, as you need to place food in them to attract the pest. The other downside is the release. You’re going to have to take the animal far from your home to release them.


Sprays come in handy when there’s only a few bugs, such as a wasp nest outside your door. However, they do have toxic chemicals in them and it’s important to wear proper safety gear with them. There’s also different sprays for different animals, so to rely on this method means you’re going to need quite a few different bottles. Like with bait traps, the spray containers must be kept out of reach of all pets and young children.

Instead of using one of these and hoping they work, it’s best to call in a professional like Action Property Pest Control Services. They’ll have the right tools and equipment to remove any pests from your home and help you prevent them from coming back again. Action Property Services Paraparaumu residents use know that pests invading your home can sometimes be an emergency situation, such as when a racoon or bird gets into your home. For this reason, the Action Property Pest Control Kapiti Coast residents rely on is always available to help you.
