Saturday, July 30, 2011 Review

Now that we own our own home, we have to figure out our own pest control. I hate bugs. Any kind of bug. especially ants. luckily we haven't had a huge ant problem. But we do have an abnormal amount of earwigs. **shudder** Those things creep me out big time.

so, needless to say I was really happy when I recently got the chance to work with on a review!

From their site:
"We all have pest problems and are in need of solutions that work. Do My Own Pest Control has been helping people control pest infestations for years. We know this industry and have the right pest control products and supplies to enable people to get rid of pests on their own, without having to pay a pest control company costly services.

Do My Own Pest Control is based on the principle of saving you money. Our goal is to provide you with the solutions that professional pest control companies and exterminators use, but at a fraction of the cost. We have everything you need from products for rodent control and roach control to glyphosate herbicide. We even carry a wide selection of natural and organic pest control products!

I was really impressed by the selection of products and the quick service! They sent me the Flies be gone fly trap and the Eco PCO WP-x powder. The fly trap got to me just in time for our 4th of July bbq. It was really easy to use, though it smelled pretty bad. They say to put it 35-40 feet away from the house, but we couldn't get it that far, so we got whiffs of it every once in a while... but holy moly did it work! We haven't had any fly problems since we put it up, and the thing is full of flies!
I haven't had a chance to try the powder yet since i don't have a spray bottle for it, but it looks like it has some good reviews, and I can't wait to get a bottle so I can use it! I love that it is safe for use around kids and pets. And I love that it will get rid of those darn earwigs!

Overall, I highly recommend! I think it is great that they offer free pest control advice and free shipping! If you are looking for quality affordable pest control solutions, be sure to check them out!

I see you wrote this blog back in 2011 as a new home owner, it now being 2013 and you being a now 2 year homeowner I was curious if you still use this company to do pest control and if so do you find that you are living comfortable with all the nasty critters out in the world and not in your home on have to hide inside on nice summer days because of the bugs and bees??? I would love to get your feed back as I am a new a homeowner and on top of that I am new to owning grass and living in the county when i am use to living in the city and I AM very afraid to even go outside because of the bugs, bees etc. thanks for your help :)

We have actually moved, but never really had much of a problem with bugs. :-) I still think they are a good company with good products, and will probably use them if in the market for more products!
