What is your best option for pest control – barrier or baiting?

Pests in your home can be a real nuisance. They can also cause damage, if you do not deal with the problem. The best way to limit the amount of damage caused is to have your home checked for pests on a regular basis. Generally, it's a good idea to have checks carried out at least once every twelve months. You can also keep an eye out for signs of pest activity, such as the smell of faeces and urine, and damage to wood or wiring. 
If you spot any signs of pest infestation, you should call experts such as Fox Pest straight away. They can help eradicate the problem, and you can limit the amount of damage caused. So, which type of pest control should you opt for? The experts should be able to advise you, but here is some information that should also help you make a decision. 
The pros and cons of barrier pest control 
Barrier pest control involves the injecting of chemicals into the soil around the exterior of your home. Pests come into contact with the chemicals and they take the effects with them, back to other pests. This is generally a quick way of killing off pests that are invading your home. 
The problem with barrier pest control is that it can be quite disruptive; drilling is usually required. You may also be worried about the use of chemicals, and the effect on the environment. If you have any concerns, you should speak to the pest control experts. 
The pros and cons of baiting 
As you might expect, baiting involves the laying of baits which pests then come into contact with. Baiting is generally more environmentally friendly than barrier pest control. It's also less disruptive. 
The main problem with this type of pest control is that it's a slow process; it can take six to eight months for pests to be eradicated. During this time, you need to have baits re-set, in order for the treatment to remain effective. This means that, although baiting may not be more expensive up front, it can end up costing you more than barrier pest control, in the long term.
Most pest control experts provide both types of pest control. They will visit your home to assess the situation. Once they have done this, they should be able to recommend the best type of pest control for your circumstances. Of course, the decision is up to you, but bear in mind that they know what they are talking about. If you have any concerns, or need answers to questions, just ask.
Hopefully, you can now see the difference between the different types of pest control. This should help you make a decision as to which type is the best choice for you. The most important thing is that you do not delay in having pest control carried out. The longer you wait, the harder the job becomes, and the more damage is likely to be caused.
