Does Natural Pest Control Actually Work?

Natural Pest Prevention

Wherever you look on the internet, there’s at least one suggestion for pest control. From vinegars to acids, Diatomaceous Earth (DE) to plants, there’s no shortage of suggestions for natural pest control depending on the type of pest you’re dealing with. And some of these do work, to varying degrees, but natural pest prevention either has to be applied frequently, in abundance, or to spot treat infestations. For example, peppermint and rosemary oils might help keep roaches at bay, but they must be applied liberally and frequently. This can be a lot of maintenance boasting limited success.

The Cost Of Natural Pest Control

Many natural pest control options are marketed for their low cost. However, the real cost won’t be what’s on the price tag. As we stated, most natural remedies require consistent applications, so while a single bottle of natural pest control may come at a low price, eight bottles later, you might be feeling differently. Additionally, options such as boric acid and DE can cause respiratory issues if inhaled, and you can’t put a price tag on health. Most remedies also aren’t capable of handling infestations because they can’t reach the nest. Our exterminators in Jacksonville, FL, can deliver targeted pest control throughout both your property and your home so you can enjoy the beauty of your house and yard without unwanted pests.

Prevention & Pest Control

Natural pest control coupled with prevention methods, such as keeping your kitchen clean and properly storing food, can help stop pest infestations before they start. For example, citrus oil can help deter fleas from your dog but should never be used on your cat. However, once you start seeing the signs of pests, you probably already have an infestation. Many pests, such as bed bugs and termites, require professional extermination services.
