The buzz on DIY pest control - is it worth the sting?

When it comes to DIY pest control and dealing with pests in your home, it can be tempting to take matters into your own hands.

It might seem like a cost-effective and straightforward solution, but many homeowners don’t realise the potential risks and hazards lurking behind the these seemingly simple methods.

If you’ve got an infestation, it’s time to call the experts. 

Why it’s important to hire the professionals

It’s not as easy as flea bags, bug spray or creating a concoction of Bunnings insecticides. It all comes down to application and the expertise behind it.

The secret is in the inspection (we know all the sneaky spots pests hide most homeowners wouldn’t even think to look!), areas you treat, techniques, equipment, specific types of chemicals to use and even their quantities. This all takes months of training, extensive licenses and qualifications and years of experience.

But ultimately, the choice to go to a professional like Log Fumigation, means you value peace of mind. It’s the peace of mind that your home is pest and hazard free.

Should I do pest control myself?

No! We strongly advise you not to and here’s why:

1. Health and safety hazards

When you go all maverick with DIY pest control, you’re exposing yourself, your loved ones, and even your furry friends to potential health risks.

Improper application of chemicals can result in bouts of dizziness, headaches, and even more severe reactions. Seriously, it’s not worth sacrificing your health when you can’t guarantee the results!

2. Potential property damage

Common mistakes like misreading labels, using improper chemicals or incorrect concentrations, can lead to some nasty consequences for your décor. 

You might be happily spraying your generic pesticides and then suddenly, you’re facing stains, paint erosion, and furniture damage you didn’t sign up for.

3. Money-draining, time-wasting

Sure, DIY pest control sounds budget-friendly, but trust us, it’s a sneaky spender. When you add up all the costs of buying products and equipment as well as potential property repairs, the budget might just fly out the window.

Not to mention failed attempts can waste time, allowing the infestation to worsen and become even more costly in the long run.

4. No guarantee that your home is pest free

Want to know the worst part? You could be risking all the dangers we’ve mentioned without even knowing your property is pest-free. And chances are it’s not. Those crafty critters might be hiding in the nooks and crannies, laughing at your DIY attempts.

Even equipped with all the right gear, it’s a professional’s access to speciality chemicals and a wealth of knowledge that sets them apart from the average Joe. And it’s why we can provide a guarantee and, in most cases, a 12-month warranty.
