Possum Removal Tips

Hello, my name is Sue, and I’ve just survived a possum problem! A while ago, we had a possum make its home in our roof. While I quite like possums, this one soon got to be a problem, and we knew that we had to get rid of it. I didn’t want to harm the little fella (and I knew that the possum maybe had more rights than we did as a protected species!) so I started talking to pest control specialists about how to catch the possum and have it safely relocated. We then had to make sure that our roof was possum proof to prevent this happening again. I started this blog to pass on some of the stuff we learned about catching and removing possums. If you have an unwanted possum in your home, I hope it helps you work out what to do!

Reasons Fumigation Is Ideal For Commercial Pest Control

The last thing that you would want to contend with on your commercial property is a pest infestation. Whether it is an office setting or a food business, pests can significantly compromise operations by eating through electrical wiring, comprising the integrity of the structure and overall just giving disrupt business. Since commercial premises tend to be larger than residential properties, sprays and topical applications may not be as efficient. Instead, you would be better off investing in professional fumigation to ensure that the infestation is completely eradicated. The following are some of the reasons why fumigation would be ideal for your commercial pest control needs.

Fumigation annihilates pests at all life stages

One fact about pest control that people are unaware of is that the type of pest management that you would need would be dependent on the life stage of the insects. For instance, sprays by eliminating adult critters but would be ineffective for any larvae that may be present on your premises. The great thing about fumigation services is that they can annihilate pests no matter what stage of their life cycle they are in. By hiring professional fumigation services, any eggs, larvae, pupae as well as adult pests will be eliminated permanently, so you do not have to worry about the infestation cropping up down the road.

Fumigation is fast acting

Another reason why you should choose fumigation over other forms of pest management is that the process is fast acting. Baiting is one of the more common pest control measures utilised for several types of critters including termites, rats and more. However, when it comes to baiting, you have to wait for the pests to take the bait and carry it back to their nests. Thus, the process can take several days or weeks to eliminate your infestation. Fumigation, on the other hand, is instantaneous since the entire property is treated at the same time, all pests are killed in one fell swoop, which ensures a zero tolerance for an infestation in your commercial premises.

Fumigation is thorough

The reason why pest infestations become increasingly worse each passing day is that these critters have the proclivity of finding the hardest to reach places to build their nests. If you have no way of reaching their colonies, chances are you will be unable to annihilate the infestation. Fumigation works by permeating every crevice in your structure, making it difficult for pests to stay hidden in their hard to reach nests.
