How to Control and Get Rid of Pests

First you will need to determine what type of pest you have; apparently, some are more difficult to spot than others.


If you are finding rodent droppings, you apparently have a problem. You can set traps or poison out to get rid of the problem; however, if you have children or pets you should probably stay away from the poisons.


Don’t like removing the rodent from a trap? There are now traps that lure the rodent in, and you throw the trap out with the rodent inside so you never have to see or touch the rodent.


Ant traps work similarly, however; they have poison in then so do keep them out of reach of children and pets.
