Why Blog About Pest Control?

You might be interested in knowing why I started blogging about pest control. Well, let me quickly tell you how this blog came about.

I really, really, really, don’t like pests and never have. I totally freak out if they crawl on me and just don’t like the sight of bugs, insects, and snakes too.

I’m not saying I have some type of pest phobia but I really don’t want to see them around.  So much so, that over the years I have paid professionals thousands of dollars to solve my pest problems.

At some point, I got to thinking, “I’m spending way too much money on these darn bugs”. I put on my thinking cap and decided to figure this pest control stuff out all by myself so that I didn’t have to pay for professional help.

After many weeks of exhausting research, I figured it out and started taking care of my own pest problems.

Over the years I’ve helped family and friends rid themselves of pesky bugs, insects, rodents, snakes, lizards, and nuisance small animals. Now I want to share what I’ve learned with you too.

My Mission In Life

Is to provide DIYers the information they need to do their own pest control.

How I Create Content and Articles For This Site

You will find that all the content on this site is well researched, planned, and edited by me to ensure it meets the highest standards. From time to time, I work with a few freelance writers who under my direction will help me pull together articles and create other content you will see on this website.

With respect to product reviews, we try to test out as many items as we can under real-world conditionals. However this is not always possible, under these conditions we rely extensively on the feedback of others who have used and experienced the items we recommend.
