Chemical-intensive industries make full use of pest control chemicals for cockroaches, termites, fleas, and ants. Before you apply any pest control chemicals to your premises, be sure you know how to employ pesticides effectively. The wrong chemicals, the wrong application, or incorrect use can damage property, create health problems, or worsen the pest problem you are trying to fix. Before you try to use any pest control chemicals in your pest control company, educate yourself on pest control chemicals, the correct chemicals to use, and potential side effects of the chemicals.
Types of Pest Control Chemicals
Knowing the difference between different types of pest control chemicals for your business will help you make the right decision for your business. There are two major categories of pest control chemicals available for purchase, organic and synthetic. Organic chemicals are generally better for your environment and do not pose the same risks as synthetic chemicals. Here are some things to consider when choosing between the two major categories of pest control chemicals.
- Piperonyl Butoxide – This is an organic pest control chemical that’s applied with a drop or spray directly onto a pest, such as ants or cockroaches. It is highly toxic but less harmful than many other common pest control chemicals. This type of pest control chemical has been found to irritate the eyes, skin, and respiratory tract of humans exposed to it. If you choose to use this chemical, make sure you wear a protective eye-wear and a mask while applying it to ensure complete safety.
- Boric Acid – This is the most widely used pest control chemical in the United States. It is also the most hazardous. Boric acid or borax (boric acid) is made from pyroxylin alcohol, which is commonly used in hospital laboratories. This chemical can irritate the eyes, skin, throat, and respiratory tract. People who have worked in a boric acid lab have reported experiencing burns, nausea, vomiting, and headaches after accidentally coming into contact with boric acid.
- Biomass – This is one of the newer pest control chemicals on the market. It is as safe as mothballs but more effective. Biomass is made from vegetable oil and is considered “green energy”. Some experts believe that using biomass in pest control is just as effective as using chemical insecticides. If you decide to use biomass as pest control, make sure you research the pest that you want to kill, because they can become resistant to the most common pesticides.
I’ve seen a lot of companies advertise that they have a “do it yourself” pest control kit. Don’t let these claims fool you, because they are misleading. Even if you have access to a pest control truck, it’s still not a good idea to try and treat your pest problem. Proper pest control treatment requires training and special gear. There is also the possibility that your treatment will backfire, leaving you with an unwanted pest and still a large bill to pay.
If you’re already using pest control chemicals, there are several things you can do to make your treatment more effective. The first thing is to increase the frequency and size of the applications you make. The second is to make sure you follow all instructions carefully and do not miss any application instructions. The most important thing to remember when using chemical-based pest control is to wear proper safety gear. Pest management specialists must protect themselves by wearing the proper protective clothing, eye protection, masks, gloves, and goggles.
A professional pest control company will be able to tell you what exactly is in each product they sell and recommend which products are the best for controlling pest problems. They will also be able to customize a plan for you that takes into account your type of home and yard as well as your specific pest needs. A pest management company can also give you advice on how to prevent certain pests from returning. This can be done by creating an environment that doesn’t support their growth or use of pesticides. This can help you save money on pest control chemicals and pest control products in the future.…Continue Reading
