Identifying what is causing the pest problem
“Don’t apply pesticides without understanding the problem you are trying to solve,” Ampm exterminators advised. “Many insects are beneficial and actually help gardens grow better. Others do no damage.” Some insect pests can be dislodged with simple methods such as spraying with a high-pressure stream of water.Ampm pest control correctly identify the culprit and at what point in the pest’s life cycle it is most susceptible to pest control measures.
Effective pest control methods
Pest Control utilizes a combination of methods to keep pest populations at an acceptable level, with the least toxic and effective first.
Cultural Pest control methods: Choose healthy plants that are not prone to pest problems, plant them where they will grow well and rotate where annuals are planted to avoid buildup of disease populations.
Physical Pest control methods: A good example is when a mouse or rats infest a building. find how they getting in,close those holes then using traps to catch the rodents.
Biological Pest control methods: Ants are beneficial to the garden soils as long as they don’t get in your building,Birds will feed on ants if its all keep at a good balance to where bird don’t become a problem to your home or business building. An ant colony does not produce reproductives (winged males and queens) until it has about 1,000 workers. The natural food for these ants consists of insects and other arthropods and sweet exudates from aphids and insects. They are also attracted to other sweet material such as decaying fruits.
Pest control chemical methods: Some pest problems are difficult to manage without chemical pesticides. However, chemicals can affect human health and be toxic to other organisms. The benefit of a pest control expert will identify the pest, choose the appropriate pesticide. Read all label directions before choosing and using pesticides in a home or Commercial business building.
Precautions taken with chemical pesticides
With any chemical, check the label to make sure its intended use or site is included on the label. Then choose one that is least harmful to the environment and to the applicator, specific to the pest and least harmful to beneficial organisms.
Pesticides labeled “Caution” are the least toxic to humans, “Warning” are more toxic, and “Danger-Poison” (with a skull and crossbones), are the most toxic. Its very important that the label is read. Be sure to wear protective clothing, especially eye protection, gloves and long pants. Pesticides are more concentrated than they used to be, and are made for very specific uses. A fraction of an ounce to treat a large area, perhaps less than in previous years.
Why are pesticides considered to be hazardous?
Pesticides are produced specifically because they are toxic to specific organisms. Although they are valuable for home and yard maintenance, the inherent toxicity of most pesticides means they can also pose risks to humans at certain levels. Misuse, especially when products are used in inappropriate applications or quantities, can cause illness, injury, and even death.
What are the possible health effects of pesticide exposure?
Depending on the pesticide and the level and type of exposure or contact, pesticide effects can be as non-threatening as irritation to the eyes, nose, throat, or skin. Or they effects can be much more severe such as damage to the central nervous system and kidney or increased risk of cancer. Symptoms may include headache, dizziness, muscular weakness, and nausea. Chronic exposure to some pesticides can result in damage to the liver, kidneys, endocrine and nervous systems. Exposure to high levels of cyclodiene pesticides (most of which are no longer permitted for use by Enviroment protection agency), commonly associated with misapplication, has produced various symptoms, including headaches, dizziness, muscle twitching, weakness, tingling sensations, and nausea.
Protecting your family from pesticides during and after application
It has been found that measurable levels of up to a dozen pesticides have been found in the air inside homes. While some of this is caused by pesticide use in those households, exposure can also come from contaminated soil or dust that floats or is tracked in from outside, stored pesticide containers, and household surfaces that collect and then release the pesticides. People can be exposed to pesticides in three ways: Inhaling pesticides (inhalation exposure), absorbing pesticides through the skin (dermal exposure), and getting pesticides in their mouth or digestive tract (oral exposure).
