Remove sources of standing water. Mosquitoes, cockroaches, spiders, silverfish, rodents are all attracted to moisture. Make sure that your home is free from standing or stagnant water. You can eliminate sources of standing water by:

  • Removing low spots in your yard
  • Removing all containers that can collect rainwater like cans, buckets, tires or bottles in your yard
  • Treating or removing dirty water in pools and water features
  • Cleaning plant pots that may harbour mosquitoes
  • Checking gutters for clog
  • Replacing the water in your pet watering bowls daily

Proper food storage. You might think storing food in cardboard boxes or loose jars is enough, but these containers may not be enough as pests can still make way in. It is better to use sealable plastic containers to store food.

Regularly check bedrooms. Your bedroom can be an attractive home for bedbugs, beetles, moths and cockroaches. Make sure to check for egg sacks, spider webs and holes. Dust and clean every inch of the room to make sure that nothing will attract bugs and insects.

Remove clutter. Keep your house clean. It is one of the most effective ways to keep pests away. Mess and clutter can attract insects. De-clutter your garage, basement or attic and just remove all the items you don’t need.

It is just good to have a pest-free home but in case you encounter some pest problems, contact your local pest control specialist to help you get rid of pests.
