You might actually hate those filthy little insects creeping around your home and call the Dubai pest control services to get rid of those critters. But actually these insects play a vital role in the eco-system. These insects are considered to be as pests by you when they appear to be invading your space. For example termites that can damage your wooden furniture in the household, play an important role in helping the dead trees to  decompose, and the spiders, which generally eat away the other pests are harmless to humans. When these pests are of such importance, instead of killing them, it would be better to carefully escort them outside the house with various nontoxic ways. Here are a few of them to help you get them out.

Use Food-grade Diatomaceous Earth: this is a chalky powder made up of the natural fossilized remains of diatoms (a type of hard-shelled algae). Being small and sharp, these particles attack only the exoskeletons of small insects. These can be referred to be as mechanical killers and is also commonly called as the Insect Dust the Food- grade diatomaceous earth is safe enough to be sprinkled throughout your house, even around your eatables. You can also rub it into your pet’s fur. Every kind of critter can be killed using the Insect Dust by just leaving a thin layer in places where the pests are found most of the times. Clean it up after two days and you can reapply if necessary.
