Reason to properly clean your home
Insects have fewer places to hide in. if your basement has a lot of cluttered corners, there is a high chance for pests to live there. Rodents, spiders, and a lot of different bugs will find your dark and cluttered basement a perfect place for them. Avoid storing loose items and start organizing them. Do not forget your yard and cut back vegetation around your home as pests can easily find a place there.
Get rid of their food sources. Pests can easily find your home a suitable place to live in if there is an available food source always waiting for them. Ants are mostly attracted to any food supply they can find in your home. During your cleaning session, better get rid of expired items. When it comes to staple items such as cereal, flour, sugar and the likes, use plastic containers with lids to protect and store them better.
Don’t give them free water. If pests have a suitable place to get water and moisture, they will stay in your home and you may just have to deal with them as an infestation is on the way. Check for potential spots where moisture can build up which will mostly include your plumbing fixtures.
