3 ways to solve your pest control problems
Pests, it’s a word that sends shivers down anyone’s spine
A home is your own personal space to relax after a hard day, but when you come home to find that pests such as rats, roaches or even termites have invited themselves to your home, what do you do?
Not all pests are not terrifying in appearance, but they can easily destroy your home from inside out!
Termites notoriously ruin wooden foundations and can even build their nests underneath your home without you realising they are there, and the worst part is they can cause a structure to collapse if left ignored.
Rats and cockroaches do more than just cause damage.
Rats are responsible for bringing in diseases while Cockroaches, on the other hand, are just plain dirty.
Cockroaches are scavengers and they will gather food from anywhere, whether it’s in dirt, garbage or even in faeces and they can spread bacteria and infect various items or even food they find inside your home.
how do you get rid of pests? Or at least prevent them from turning your home into their home
Here are three things you can do to ensure your home is safe against these nasty bugs:
KEEP YOUR SPACE CLEAN.
If you want to prevent rodents and roaches from invading your home, it’s necessary to keep things neat and tidy.

- Storing food in proper containers like glass jars with snap lids is a good idea.
- Don’t leave unwashed dishes just lying on the sink. If it’ll
- keep floors clean including areas like the bathroom
- Regular garbage disposal is also recommended.
- A trash can is a common hub for rats and roaches so always clear it out as much as possible.
SEAL ENTRANCE POINTS.
Inspect the external walls and your roof to see if there are any cracks. Even the tiniest spots can be a possible access point for a small mouse or cockroach.
If there are tiny openings, seal them up using caulk or other toxic-free sealant.
For bigger holes, cover them up using mesh screens that even the average mouse cannot get through.
Another important point to consider is to keep vegetation cut back or things like stacks of wood around the immediate vicinity of your home.
Wood attracts termites. It can also become a haven for different types of pests as well.
