Termagon Termite & Pest Control Blog
When most of us think about technology and innovation, we imagine devices like smartphones and voice assistants. However, the fact is that all aspects of modern life are being improved upon with new tech, and the pest control world is no different. In this article, we want to look at a few of the ways that innovation is helping companies like us take care of those bugs and critters trying to invade your home. Here are the top results.
Eco-Friendly Materials and Traps
As sustainability becomes much more than a buzzword, consumers want products that will kill pests without harming the environment. Fortunately, manufacturers have stepped up to the plate to ensure that new pesticides and treatments are laser-focused on their targets. Best of all, in addition to protecting the ecosystem, you don’t have to worry about harming other beings inside the house, like pets.
Unfortunately, most invasive critters like to find a nest in hard-to-reach places. Whether it’s an attic, a crawlspace, or the roof, these areas can be difficult to send a pest control technician. Thankfully, with a cheap drone, it’s never been easier to locate these nests and assess the situation. Most of the time, these drones are deployed aerially, although some companies might have ground vehicles as well.
Fiber Optic Cameras
Another favorite nesting spot for pests is inside your home’s walls. Again, trying to take a peek without causing damage can be problematic. At least, it would be if fiber-optic cameras didn’t exist. These handy devices are used in a variety of industries, including medicine and plumbing. Pest control companies are getting on board the technology train to scope out pests where they live, no matter how deep they are.
Finally, when a pest invades your home, you want to be sure that you can remove it as quickly as possible. Fortunately, now that everyone has a smartphone camera, it’s simple to snap a picture or video of the offender and send it off to us. By having this instant communication, we can come better prepared for the situation, no matter how dire.
