Conventional pest control has been around for decades. It has been utilized since before 2500 BCE, according to online data. The first conventional pesticide had a sulfur base, which is a toxic element. Sulfur-based pesticides were utilized to treat garden pests. Pesticides have come a long way since then. Today, traditional pesticides utilize various chemicals to eradicate mild to severe pest infestations.
How Does Conventional Pest Control Work?
Researchers at Purdue University conducted a study to determine the best traditional pesticide treatment strategy. The study determined the best strategy for utilizing conventional pesticides to treat bed bugs is an initial and follow-up treatment.
Our conventional pest management combines pesticide treatments with visual home inspections. To ensure full eradication of bed bugs, at least two treatments with conventional pesticides are a necessity.
- During the first treatment, a technician inspects the home. If the customer agrees to hire our pest control company, the technician will work with the customer to create a treatment strategy. We recommend that the first treatment be rendered following the consultation to avoid potential delays that could complicate the problem.
- During the second visit, the treatment strategy is implemented, but only if it was not previously.
- During the third visit, the technician inspects the home to determine if the treatment was effective. We generally leave a gap of up to three weeks between each treatment. If bed bugs are detected during the inspection, the technician will repeat the pesticide treatment.
The separation between pesticide treatments is necessary because it allows enough time for the bed bug eggs to hatch, which occurs between 10 and 14 days of birth.
We utilize commercial-grade traditional pesticides, which are not available over-the-counter. Our high-quality pest control products are maximum strength formulas. To learn more about our conventional pesticide treatments for bed bugs, cockroaches, fleas, termites, and ants contact our local office.
