What Is Pyrethrum And Why Is It Considered A Safe Pest Control Solution?
Our expert pest controllers use a highly effective natural and organic pest deterrent known as Pyrethrum. It is commonly used in the agricultural industry and exported around the world. It is used for pest control treatments in areas that need to be free from harmful chemicals or areas where there are children or pets. Examples of these areas are the backyard, kids play areas, and organic vegetable gardens.
What Is It?
Pyrethrum is found naturally in the environment from the plant pyrethrum daisy (Tanacetum cinerariifolium), which is a part of the Asteraceae family. Found in the flower head, the substance can kill insects. Being organic, it breaks down rapidly especially in sunlight making it non-harmful to the environment.
How Does It Work?
Pyrethrum disrupts the normal function of cockroaches, spiders, flies and similar crawling insects by affecting the central nervous system. An insect loses its normal ability to send messages to muscles to move. In low concentrations, pyrethrum creates a behavioural reaction known as avoidance reaction which results in the insects fleeing from the area. When used in the backyard, Pyrethrum causes female mosquitoes to lose focus and the ability to bite and extract blood from humans. Increasing the concentration results in the insects losing the normal behavioural patterns all together. Download our Natural Pest Control Data Sheet
Why Hire Expert Pest Controllers To Apply Pyrethrum?
Even though pyrethrum is a natural substance, applying pyrethrum still needs to be done by trained experts. If applied incorrectly, it might not be effective in getting rid of pests in your property. It is still best to let experienced pest control experts inspect your property and determine the areas where you need to apply large concentrations of this substance.
How can I remove pests from my home?
Step 1: Remove Any Water Source For Pests.
Your first step is to investigate your home to find where bugs may be entering and hiding. You should also check for possible food and water sources. Two areas you’ll want to be sure to check are under your kitchen sink and behind your refrigerator. If water is collecting in these areas, it will provide a drinking ground for rats and cockroaches. Every living rodent or spider needs water. That is why you need to remove any of their water sources such as a leaking pipe or broken home appliance.
Step 2: Declutter Your Property.
If you have piles of unnecessary items laying around your house, it’s time to get rid of them. This may include stacks of old magazines and newspapers, old shoes in the closet, and any other clutter that you don’t need. These things give bugs a place to hide, not to mention material for building nests. It is also harder to clean around areas of clutter, resulting in an increased food supply for many types of insects. Cardboard is especially attractive to bugs, so get rid of any empty boxes you may have lying around.
Go through your house and gather items that you are no longer using. Either sell or donate these things, and then organise the belongings you have left. All storage should be at least an inch off the floor and away from the walls. Keep food in tightly sealed plastic containers, especially pet food.
Step 3: Clean.
In this step, you remove any markings and droppings left by insects, as well as getting rid of their food sources. Vacuum, mop, and thoroughly clean your cabinets, countertops, and other surfaces in your home, especially under the refrigerator, oven, and kitchen sink. Use vacuum attachments to make the job of reaching into those corners and crevices easier.
Once your initial cleaning is done, continue to clean regularly to keep your house free of food and water sources. Wipe up crumbs and spills immediately, wash your dirty dishes right away, and empty your garbage before you go to bed. Leave pet bowls empty overnight and refill them in the morning. Keep your drains covered when they’re not being used as well.
If you’re suffering from a cockroach infestation, be sure to sweep or vacuum under you furniture to remove any dead cockroaches. These can decay into roach dust, which may trigger allergies and asthma attacks in some people.
Step 4: Seal Cracks And Gaps.
Next, you will need to seal the entrances pests use to get into your house. These are commonly located in kitchens and bathrooms where pipes enter your house. Concentrate your efforts in the kitchen and bathroom, and work your way outward from there. Use cement, plaster, or caulk to seal the cracks and gaps where pests enter. You may also apply weather stripping around your windows and doors.
Step 5: Use Pest Baits.
If you’ve done all of the above steps and your pest problem has not been resolved, it may be time to use some pest baits. These kill pests by poisoning them, and therefore should be used with caution. Only resort to this method once all of the above steps have been done. Make sure to keep the baits out of reach of your pets and children. Reminder: It is best to let expert pest controllers handle termite baits or rat baits to ensure the safety of your loved ones.

Consult Your Doctor To Avoid An Allergic Reaction
Ask the pest control company what substances they will be using for your property. After that, you can consult your doctor about the pest control chemicals in order to find out if you would have any allergic reaction or if there is any chance that they might cause harm to you and your family.

Trusted pest control company
When you are considering hiring a pest control expert, the first thing that you should do is talk to some of the people you know and see if they can recommend you one. Ask your friends, colleagues and your family if they have previously used such services and if they can recommend you a pest control expert. It is highly important that you do not go making deals with the first company that you see, but rather first find people who have used it and ask them what they think.
If you do not have anyone to ask, or you are afraid of talking to people about your little misfortune (which is a lot more common than you might think), then you should look around forums and other places where you can find feedback from any previous customers of the company.
