- Identify insecticide solution – undoubtedly, the quickest way of getting rid of an insect infestation is to use an insecticide. This is a chemical treatment that kills the adults, young and any eggs but, an effective solution can also mean a deep clean, as well as the use of extreme temperature, such as freezing or heating. Different insects react differently to different level of temperature and humidity, therefore knowing the nature and biological habits of all kinds of insects is important – and this is why a professional pest control technician can have the answers!
