Controlling the pests in your house can be really tough. Pests carry various diseases which can cause harm to human beings. These include rats and mosquitoes. Others are very harmful to the house and furniture. These are insects such as termites and ants. While making use of pesticides may do the trick, they contain dangerous chemicals which are harmful to your health.
Listed below are some of the measures you can take on your own to make your home safer and control the population of pests around.
1. Never leave food while it is exposed. Food left open will always tend to attract insects such as ants which bring a lot of damage to the house.
2. Clean up all the food remains and drink spills after meals. The food crumbs may attract small insects and pests. Cleaning up will remove the source of attraction to the pests and they will not venture into your house.
3. Wash containers before you recycle them: pests always like to live in dirty places. Ensuring cleanliness even in the recycled containers reduces the chances of the pests coming to your house.
4. Cover the swimming pools when they are not being used.
5. Do not leave food for your pet outside during the night as it may attract rodents and other creatures.
6. Spray around your doors and windows with orange essential oil at night. This alters the trail of pests such as ants making them confused and disoriented.
7. Seal entryways into the house.
8. Do not clutter things that you do not need. Instead, you can donate them to others. This reduces the breeding grounds for pests.
In occlusion, the above list is a good start on Do-It-Yourself pest control the easy way. Doing the things suggested will keep the population of pests at a bare minimum and prevent others from coming into the house.
