Why DIY Pest Control Doesn’t Always Work

There’s something empowering about being in control of our daily routines. We love to build things, grow things, and fix things! Some even try to DIY their pest control. And while DIY projects seem fun, opting to DIY the wrong things can cause serious consequences.

Proper pest control requires in-depth knowledge and experience about pests and the products and treatments used to eliminate them. The professionals at Holder are the best in the field. Here are a few ways they can help make your life easier while protecting your home from pests.

1. Time


The first time you do anything, it can feel confusing, even overwhelming. You scan the shelves at the hardware store to find the product or combination of products that will eliminate your specific pest problem. You’ll have to read and reread the packaging just to make sure you’re doing it right. Then, of course, you have to come home and take the time to apply those DIY pest products per the directions and cross your fingers that they work as they should and quickly. You may even have to do multiple applications. When calculating the benefits of hiring pest professionals, you definitely have to consider how much of your personal time it could save you. Most homeowners have a never-ending to-do list for their homes in addition to their personal priorities. What else could you be doing with that time?

2. Money


You’ve heard the saying, “Don’t throw good money after bad.” When DIY pest products don’t work, it’s back to the drawing board, looking for the next solution that can allegedly solve all of your pest problems. Before you know it, you may have spent a ton of money without having completely resolved the issues.

3. Frustration vs. Effectiveness


One of the greatest failures of the DIY approach may be the lack of understanding and experience. Without the vast knowledge base professionals have you may miss early warning signs of a particular problem or consider an issue resolved that isn’t. Access to the best products is another roadblock you’ll face. This understandably leads to major frustration after you’ve invested so much of your time, money, effort, etc.
