The Importance of Sanitation in Insect Control

The Importance of Sanitation in Insect Control  

How to Avoid Expensive Pest Services

Insect control often refers to removing cockroaches or bed bugs from a building, whether it’s an apartment, house, or commercial building. Although calling for pest services is the first and right thing to do when you notice signs of cockroaches or bedbugs in your place, it’s not the only thing you’re responsible for. In order to make sure the service is effective and the infestation will not reoccur, you must ensure the cleanliness of the place.

Sanitation and Cockroaches

If cockroaches have access to food and water, no amount of insecticide spray will remove them. It often happens that cockroaches appear in one apartment, and they spread until the entire apartment building is completely infested. Even if they are removed, the insect control service will not be fully accomplished until the cleanliness of the building is restored. So, before you even call for an insect control inspection, make sure you remove all food and clutter from your home.

Sanitation and Bed Bugs

Bed bug infestations are less dependent on sanitation; however, they are highly influenced by clutter. Since bed bugs receive all their nutrition from biting animals and people, they are not influenced by dirty dishes, opened food containers or other poor sanitation practices that promote cockroach infestations. Clutter itself does not lead to a bed bug infestation either; however, it can make the insect control inspection inefficient. If the bed bugs cannot be located and exterminated on time from all places in your home, then you’ll never be able to get rid of them completely. We highly recommend you tidy up your home in order to get the most out of your pest control service.
