Pest control Guide for the new Homeowner


Do you have a disturbing pest problem in your home? If you really have it, just take it easy. The pests that you have most likely found can be removed with a small pest control. You should be able to perform all pest control measures yourself without hiring an expensive professional exterminator. Check the following ideas to get an efficient way to manage your infestation problem.

  • If you are afraid to use chemical pest control in your home, try traps instead. Physical traps work to attract the pest and then catch. Some work like a traditional mousetrap that will close and kill the pest while others involve a sticky sheet that will put the pest on the sheet so you can remove it from your house.
  • Keep your kitchen as clean as possible. Insects will not appear so often when they have nothing to eat. In particular, use containers for loose food items in your pantry. Take the garbage often and keep your counter clean. Finally, sweep every night before bed.
  • Take every pet food in the evening hours. You also want to get their bowl of water. Bugs eat like eating it and then wash it down with the bowl of water. If you spray for insects with the pesticide, you want to take away the dog's bowl before hand.
  • Never leave the food longer than you need it. If you make a habit to leave the food, you will almost definitely get into a pest problem from time to time. If instead, you make a habit to cleanup immediately after you make a mess with your meal, you will do a lot to keep the pest away.
  • Check your plumbing to control your indoor pests. Unlocking basins or drains that are backed up. Cockroaches and flies love the material that accumulates in the sink and drains. After cleaning the drains, check them each month.
  • Detergent is a great tool to prevent ants from getting into your home. They dislike the smell of chemicals that are used in the detergent. Use this by adding the detergent into a spray bottle and giving all the long entrances to your doors, and any other place ant could enter.
  • If you are trying to get rid of the pests in your home with pesticides, you should think carefully if you have children and/or pets. Many of the chemicals that are present in pesticides can harm them Take them out of the house for a few hours if you have no choice.
  • If you are struggling with an ants problem in your home, make sure you do not feed your unwanted visitors! Be very diligent about the food after eating and keep your worktops and floors clean. Take your garbage regularly and if you have pets, do not leave your meal overnight.
