Do you have a bug infestation in your home? You might be feeling desperate to get rid of the problem. Some homeowners are so willing to do what it takes to eliminate the infestation that they make mistakes that endanger the health of their families.

Do-It-Yourself Pest ControlBug Bombs and Safety for Your Family

A walk down the aisle at a local home and garden store will reveal many at-home solutions for pest control: sticky traps, baits, sprays, bug-killing dust, and bug bombs. Before you choose a product, it is essential to understand the problem and to identify the best treatment solution.

Just because these products are offered for sale to the general public, doesn’t mean that they are safe to use. Don’t forget that these DIY solutions are pesticides. The chemicals within the products could be dangerous to your family.

Dangers of Bug Bombs

Bug bombs are foggers that can be used to fumigate an area completely. There are benefits to bug bombs because the pesticide can be spread into cracks and crevices that might be hard to reach.

The problem is that most people don’t bother to read the label. They don’t realize how dangerous these pesticide chemicals can be. These chemicals could lead to serious health concerns, and even death if they are used improperly.

Take a look at the label, and you will see a long list of warnings about potential health risks, fires, and explosions. If you are planning to use a bug bomb, then you need to make sure that no one is in the house. Extinguish pilot lights on the water heater and stove. Make sure to properly air out the rooms and clean up after the treatment is done.

Call the Professionals to Protect Your Family

Don’t risk the health of your family by using a do-it-yourself bug bomb! Instead, it is better to call the professionals so that they can eliminate the infestation for you. Pest control experts know the proper way to use the chemicals and treatments, helping to reduce the risk of health problems and other complications.
