You want a pest free home. So what can you do to keep pests away from your property? Here are some simple and effective solutions to help you avoid pest problems.
Keep your house dry. Avoid standing water because mosquitoes, cockroaches, spiders, silverfish, rodents are all attracted to moisture. Make sure the kitchen worktops and even your bathroom sinks are dry at the end of the day.
If any of your fixtures are leaking, especially in places you don’t mostly visit, they should be fixed. A humidifier can help remove the excess moisture. When it comes to your backyard, drain all containers that collect rainwater to avoid mosquitoes from breeding. Make sure that your house is free from all forms of standing water.
Store food properly. Ensure that food is stored in tightly sealed containers. It is preferable to store in a lockable cupboard. You may also use sealable plastic containers to store food.
Inspect the bedrooms. Regularly check bedrooms for bedbugs, beetles, moths and cockroaches. Make sure to check for egg sacks, spider webs and holes. Clean every inch of the room to make sure it is bug-free.
De-clutter. Remove unwanted items in your house as pests may use these extra items a house of their own. Check your garage, basement or attic for unwanted items and dispose of them.
A home free from pests can be achieved if you prevent them from building their breeding spot. These simple things can help you in the long run in keeping pests away from your home all the time.
