Tips on how to control pests in your home
Clean the kitchen
Nothing attracts pests more than a pile of leftovers in your kitchen. What you need to do is wipe the counters, remove the leftovers and sweep the floors on a daily basis. Taking this “treasure away” will help you keep the ants away from your house.
Block their entry
The first thing you should do is to prevent the pests from getting into your home. For this, you should screen and fix the holes found during the screening. Aside from this, you may want to check your windows and doors for gaps and then replace the window stripping as soon as possible.
Take care of your yard
Make a trip to your yard each week to make sure it does not have an army of pets. You can check this by making sure there are no nests in your yard. Aside from this, you should trim the bushes, and rake up the piles of debris. And yes, you should weed as well.
You should not let termites enter your home. These pests search for firewood. If you store your firewood properly, you can keep these pests at arm’s length. It is a good idea to store firewood at least 5 feet away from your house. Another important thing to keep in mind is that the firewood should be put on racks that are at least a few inches above the ground level. This way the ants and other pets will not have direct access to the wood.
Do not let the meat scrap stay in the garbage for too long. In the intense heat of summer, the meat starts rotting. And this invites unwanted pests. Therefore, make sure the garbage from the garbage can is removed in time.
Use a pest control service
Lastly, you can hire the services of a reliable local pest controller to visit your house and spray for rodents and bugs. You can call them twice on an annual basis. Pest control experts make a note of your issues and then create a custom plan to eliminate pests from your premises. As a matter of fact, pest controllers offer more protection than any other service provider. By getting your home inspected, you can have peace of mind that your home is free of dangerous pests.
