Homemade Pest Remedies (Good)
There are a number of different homemade pest remedies that you can make on your own. Many of them are inexpensive and you may already own some of the necessary ingredients. This is a safer alternative to many pesticide sprays that are used indoors. However, homemade pest remedies usually require you to apply more often to ensure the pests stay away and eventually become ineffective.
Household Pest Spray (Better)
Products you can buy at big box stores are often temporary fixes. Although initially effective, these applications are typically done inside your home, which can potentially cause harm to you and your family. It’s important to always read the labels in order to ensure a safe and proper amount of product is applied.
HomeShield™ Insect Defense (Best)
An effective outdoor application is a safe way to keep pests and insecticides outside your home. HomeShield Insect Defense is an invisible barrier that is sprayed around the foundation of your home and around any windows and doors. Licensed Swingle technicians will also spray 2-3 feet up the outside of your walls to guarantee a complete protective seal against any unwanted pests getting inside your home.
Now that you know what pests to expect as we slowly transition into fall, it’s a great time to treat and protect your home against unwanted visitors. Contact Swingle today for a free quote to keep your home pest free!
