									Insect Control

Insects are creatures that we have to share our world with but they can
definitely become annoying in no time at all. Many people find that being
outdoors on warm nights is difficult due to insects. There are many ways
though in which you can help to control them. Mosquitoes seem to be one
of the biggest pests when it comes to insects. Make sure you wear plenty
of repellent.

There are candles and sensors you can use as well to give you more of a
chance of controlling them. Mosquitoes lay eggs in areas of water that
has settled and they can leave hundreds of them there at a time. One way
for you to take care of this problem is to remove those areas of water.
If you have puddles in your drive way after the rain then use a broom to
push it. Make sure your rain gutters aren’t set up to where large volumes
of stagnant water will be there in one place.

Ants are another type of insect that can be very difficult to deal with.
They are common outdoors but they can also get into your home. For
outside you can run water into their tunnels and flood them out. You can
also use poison that you lay on food that they will carry back to the
colony with them.

In many communities there are trucks that go out at certain times of
night to spray chemicals to help with insect control. This is often done
very late at night when most people won’t be out. If you aren’t sure if
your community offers this you can ask around to find out. For help with
insect control inside of your home you can buy over the counter products.
If they don’t solve the problem you may have to contact a professional.

One of the biggest problems with chemicals that are used for insect
control is that the critters start to become immune to it. While you may
kill off a large number of them there are some that will be resistant and
survive. As a result their offspring are more immune to it as well. This
means the potency of the chemicals will have to continue being stronger
for them to remain effective.
