Frequently Asked Questions
Can I do my own pest control?
In many cases, yes, but only if you are willing to invest the time, effort and expense necessary to gather needed information and do what’s necessary to solve your pest problems. Anybody can spray pesticides, but proper pest control often involves much more. Pest control of some pests, such as bees and wasps, may be too dangerous for you to risk doing yourself. Other pests, such as timber pest borers, require specialized knowledge and equipment, and are best left to professionals.
