What does pest control do?


A serene and comfortable home is a desire of every person, yet the intrusion of unwanted pests can quickly disrupt this tranquility. The conventional approach to addressing such issues often involves calling professional pest control services. However, this approach leads to common concerns, such as “Is it safe to be in my house after pest control is used?” and “Where is pest control being sprayed in my house?” Understanding these concerns paves the way toward a more mindful, empowered approach to pest control, one where you are in control. By choosing to do your own pest control with our range of DIY pest control products, you can alleviate these concerns in an environmentally conscious and effective manner.

Where is pest control being sprayed in my house?  

The common areas where professional pest control services usually apply treatments include entry points, corners, cracks and crevices, along baseboards, and in areas where pests have been observed. However, when you invite professional pest control into your home, you may not always have full control or knowledge of where chemicals are being applied, which can be a cause of concern, especially for those with young children or pets, or for individuals with sensitivities to chemicals. The veil of uncertainty regarding the precise areas being treated and the types of chemicals used can be discomforting.


In sharp contrast, embracing Dr. Killigan’s DIY pest control solutions hands the reins back to you. When you choose to do your own pest control, you decide exactly where to apply the treatment. You're in full control, and there's no mystery regarding where the solutions are being applied within your home. This level of control is very reassuring.

By adopting our DIY approach, you answer the question of “Where is pest control being sprayed in my house?” with confidence and precision, making informed decisions based on your home’s unique needs and your family’s safety. Plus, with every application, you’re learning more about effective pest management, making you better equipped to maintain a pest-free, comfortable living environment in the long run.

Is it safe to be in my house after pest control is used?

The concern of “Is it safe to be in my house after pest control is used?” is a genuine one, especially when chemical-based treatments are employed by professionals. The fear of residual chemicals and their potential effects on family members and pets can be distressing.

The detrimental effects of the chemicals used in conventional pest control can indeed be alarming. These substances often contain potent toxins that may cause immediate health problems such as skin irritation, respiratory distress, and in severe cases, even poisoning. They can be particularly hazardous to children, the elderly and pets who may come into direct contact with treated areas or airborne particles. Moreover, the lingering residues from these chemicals may continue to pose risks long after the initial application. Over time, chronic exposure to such toxins can lead to more serious health issues including neurological disorders, reproductive problems and even certain types of cancer. The potential for both short-term and long-term health consequences adds a layer of anxiety to the already nerve-wracking experience of a home infestation. 

Transitioning to Dr. Killigan’s DIY pest control solutions addresses this concern head-on.
