There is no one-size-fits-all solution to controlling pests. That means you have to learn as much as you can about pest control to find the answer for your problems. This article will definitely help you start out on the right path.
Stop Them With Steel
When you find holes that pests can get in through, stop it up with steel wool. The steel wool makes it nearly impossible for rodents to chew through. Openings measuring more than 1/2 an inch need stuffing. These rodents can come through small areas.
Suck Them Out!!
If you are seeing bugs, make sure to vacuum your rugs often. This gets rid of the ants and some bugs that get in your living room rugs. Change the bag of your vacuum cleaner on a regular basis.
Give Your Food The Seal Of Approval
If you have food out it should always be sealed. Pests always come when they smell food, so don’t leave things lying around to create an attractive scent. It is important not to let your trash linger in the barrel too long. Pests are also attracted to trash.
Bedbugs Love Hide And Seek
Bedbugs are really hard to rid your home of because they love to hide. Close up open holes you may find prior to extermination. This is so no bugs are just leaving the holes during the extermination process.
Place New Plants Away From the House Exterior
Put new plants at least a few feet from your home. This can be a meeting ground for insects that you do not want in your home. Placing them too close to your entry points or windows can risk having them go inside your home.
Don’t Let Them Live In The RV
Mice make campers or trailers their homes quite often. You can use natural repellents to get rid of those types of guests. Small sachets of rodent repellent are nontoxic and pleasant smelling, while preventing mice from making their way into your camper or RV.
Drain Them Out
Pests really like to live in drains. Be sure you’re checking your drains and keeping them clean every month. You could snake them, or pour a little liquid cleaner into them while afterwards flushing it out. Debris and other things can cause mold to grow inside them, giving pests a great place to live.
Hairspray Is Deadly To Pests
If you find yourself facing a bee or wasp, use hairspray! Hairspray is totally safe for humans, but deadly for insects. The pests will become sticky with the hairspray and won’t be able to get to water or food. Bees can be dealt with in this fashion without the risk of getting stung.
Get Educated About Pests
To get rid of pests, you need to educate yourself. Find out what it eats, where it prefers to nest, and (most importantly) what can kill or drive it away. When you have the right knowledge about a particular pest, you are much better equipped to come up with a strategy to eliminate it.
Turn Out The Lights
Outdoor lights can attract pests. Lighting around your home’s entrance should only be turned on when needed, not left on continuously. Prevent bugs entering your home by making use of orange and yellow porch lights that are not as attractive to bugs.
With all of these answers at your fingertips, you should now be able to conquer your pests. Use what you have learned above to easily get rid of pests. When the pests are gone, you will be pleased.
