However, adopting some preventive measures is highly advisable rather than taking action after the pests have already entered your home.
Keeping the kitchen clean
The kitchen is usually one of the favourite places for pests to thrive since they love to stay in dirty and damp areas.
- Keep all the kitchen counters, stoves, racks, and drawers clean.
- Use a disinfectant cleaner and wipe them regularly.
- Avoid keeping any food particles in the open as it attracts more insects.
- Keep the dustbin always covered and clean it regularly.
- Dispose of the garbage every day.
Deep clean the house
- Vacuum the interiors regularly.
- Remove the cobwebs and pest droppings
- Avoid piling up any clutter.
- Keep the area under the beds, refrigerator, lofts, and other difficult-to-reach areas clean.
- Keep your bathroom clean and dry.
- Ensure the drains are not blocked with hair or soap particles.
Keep a check on leakages
Most pests look for damp and dark areas as they mainly thrive on food and water. Hence, check your home for damp walls, leakages in the indoor and outdoor pipes, pipes leaking under the sink, and leaking faucets.
Get them repaired immediately. Ensure there is no stagnant water as it becomes a breeding place for mosquitoes.
Sealing the cracks and holes
Ensure your home is maintained by sealing all the wall cracks.
- Close the gaps between doors, window frames, and walls as these are entry points for small insects, termites, and pests.
- Close the gaps around ducts, utility pipes, or the opening of the exhaust fans.
Maintain your garden
If you have a garden, maintain it and keep it clean to avoid any unwanted pests like rats, ants, or mosquitoes.
- Fill all the holes and pits so that water does not accumulate.
- Clean the pond and fountains regularly.
- Prune the plants regularly so that there are no wild bushes.
While these measures may not eliminate pest infestation but they will reduce the number of pests in your home. However, taking the help of a professional pest control company will help you to completely get rid of harmful pests.
