The usual reason for their invading is to forage for resources. These occasional invaders in time can become a nuisance since they may cause property damage on furniture, textiles or plants — they also bite. If you want to skip the hassle and headache of having to deal with these pests on your own, then employ some paste control tactics.
Some insects which secrete a foul odor can cause allergic reactions for people or animals. These pests usually die after a short while, but their remains can become food for other pests which will only exacerbate the problem.
Insects such as arthropods or mites are occasional invaders whose normal habitat is usually out of doors, however, when circumstances arrive that they actually do invade indoors, a great way to remove them naturally and without much damage to your or your property is by making the invaded area as inhospitable to the invaders as possible.
This is a great indoor insect control procedure, which is just one among many possible means to be rid of these pests.
- Another way to be rid of pests is called the Exclusion, which is one of the initial steps to flush them out and keep them out for good.
It is done by using a sealing agent such as wire screens, caulk, cloth, or any other material with which one may be a blew to seal cracks or gaps outside a structure where insects can crawl into.
Typical entry points are usually found undersigns, around doors and windows, on vents, utility lines, foundation walls, or any area with crevices large enough for insects to enter.
- Habitat modification, the second way to manage infestation involves placing an inorganic barrier about two to four feet around the premises. It is essential that you apply only inorganic material such as rock or gravel, since any other material, more so organic ones, may be used and adapted as a habitat by the perimeter invaders.
- Mechanical control is the third step in insect control. When the invading insect numbers have swelled to a very significant amount, mechanical measures to eradicate them need to be undertaken.
One fast and easy way to do this is to locate their hide-out and sucking them out with a vacuum cleaner. The bags can then be sealed and disposed of after use, or they can be incinerated to ensure that none of the pests escape and survive. The three above-stated methods may be classified as a type of organic pest control.
- Organic pest control involves the use of natural, chemical-free means to eradicate perimeter invaders.
- Chemical control is your one last resort when all other steps have been undertaken and all else have failed. The most common chemical control procedure is called ‘fogging’, involving the use of smoke bomb-like objects called ‘foggers’.
These, however, are not quite as effective as they are put out to be since they might not penetrate well enough to flush out perimeter invaders especially when they’re in hiding.
A tried, tested, and proven method to eradicating occasional invaders is by the help of professionals who specialize in the extermination of perimeter invaders.
