There are many ways to control rodents. Some are a lot more difficult to control than others. You will have to think about the action that you will have to take in order to destroy them effectively. Most of these involve doing some form of killing. You will have to be well prepared for the process. If you are someone who easily does become disgusted by pests dying then this might not be for you. Here are some ways for you to control pests:

KEEPING THE AREA CLEAN

You will have to focus on keeping your house as clean as you possibly can. You will have to do so in order to prevent any rodents or insects from living in the area. You will have to think about cleaning the area after meals as well as putting food in the bin, washing as well as drying plates, cups, glasses and various cooking pans and pots. This will take a lot of time and energy on your part but you will not have to contact pest control anytime soon.

BIOLOGICAL STRATEGIES

These strategies include utilizing natural foes of the enemies and then interfering in their natural habitat of breeding. Generally pesticides are never utilized. You can use fish to eat the larvae of mosquitoes or use dung of the beetles which is mixed with cow dung to destroy the habitat of flies. Do keep in mind that this can go wrong. You can even use toads to eat bees but sometimes the toads themselves can become hazards to the environment.

STRONG INSECTICIDES

Sometimes insecticides can be used to destroy insects. It depends on the type of insecticide that we plan on using. It can be granule or even aerosol too. Sometimes flying animals can be controlled by even using aerosol and crawling ones can be treated with powder as well as oral sprays. They generally kill these insects by acting like strong poison on their insides. This can be relatively toxic for you too especially if you do inhale it too much. It is must that you do use it if you do have any pest and building inspections.

DERMAL AND ORAL METHODS

These methods are used to destroy the rodents with treat termites through their skin. The skin in these animals is referred to as the cuticle where the poison is given to. Some of the droplets of the spray might even hit the bee or worm. They might even come into direct contact with the powder as well as granules which will form an insecticide on them. It can be rather dangerous.
