Keeping Your House Free Of Unwanted Pests

Any unwanted animal which has invaded your home is considered a pest, but homeowners most frequently complain about bugs, rodents and squirrels. As humans, we often forget that we are not the only ones living in this world and could possibly be the ones invading their space or environment. The truth of the matter is that even the animals we consider to be pests are all part of this natural world we call home and have every right to it. This is particularly true when it comes to our house. As such, there is always the need to ensure that their invasion of your sanctuary is curbed to stop them from being a nuisance. Below you will find some tips which will help to keep your property a pest free zone.

To start, it is important to keep pests from getting in. Most are looking for shelter and something to eat. Some of the time, all they are looking for is a dry and warm place they could make a home. If you can make it more difficult for them to find what they need, they will not come inside as often. Cleanliness will help to deter animals in search of food. Never leave dishes in the sink at night, and keep fruits and vegetables refrigerated rather than out on the counters. Never leave leftovers in an accessible place, and empty your waste and rubbish on a daily basis. Take out your trash often as well, so you do not have food scraps sitting around. You will notice a great reduction in pests as a result.

Keeping pests at bay is often as easy as making sure that your home is clean. Ensure that any spills are mopped up straight away. Put used dishes in the dishwasher so that they are not left sitting out. Many insects also seek out moisture. Be careful to address any leaks and plumbing problems as soon as possible, in order to keep water loving bugs away.

Pests often enter the home by way of small cracks and holes. If you are vigilant for potential entry points, they will not be able to do this. Use a sealant or caulking on all openings to prevent pests from making a way into your home.

It is important to pick up around the outside of the house to discourage pests from nesting. Keep items like wood away from the foundation of your home. You should also check your pets regularly for ticks and fleas, as these can be lurking in the grass.

Keeping your home free of pests is very straightforward if you adhere to these basic tips. Simple measures such as keeping your home clean, dry and secure will stop the majority of animals from making your home their home.

Keep Your Garden Looking Nice By Eliminating Pests

You will never be in a position to get rid of them all, but you need to do something, because you don’t want your hard work completely wasted. A difficulty is that insects are often only found by looking for them in rotting vegetation or under the surface of the soil. Your first line of attack must be to eliminate their hiding places whenever possible. Get rid of the rotting matter, the leaves and weeds that provide shelter to the insects. On a regular basis, you should be turning the soil over, and breaking up the clumps. By doing this subterranean insect hideouts will likely be minimised.

The nastiest thing there is about having a garden is walking out to check on your plants and discovering holes in all the plants that looked fine the last time you saw them. The devastation has normally been a result of pests. The most usual ones are slugs, worms and birds, but there are also caterpillars, snails and in some cases, moles.

Pests must be eliminated without delay if you want to keep up with the good health and look of your garden. The longer they remain, the harder they’re going to be to get rid of. A garden adds to a house when you keep it up, and keep it in top shape.

To keep the diseases and harmful insects in check, you should also use dormant spray. You apply the spray once the plants are dormant, close to February/March. The instructions must be followed exactly to ensure the dormant spray works properly. Another reason to follow the instructions is that if used incorrectly it could be lethal for your plants. Just as some insects are bad for your garden, there are others that are good, so try and retain them. Then there are those winged pests, the birds. Because they’re so mobile it’s very hard to chase them away, so it’s better to try to distract them from your plants by means of a bird feeder. Birds usually prefer a bird seed mix, which you can place in a feeder, and so doing you’ll save your garden from pecking damage. Not only will a feeder look good, but it can also be cheaper over time.

Keeping a dog may help, yet only up to a point. Many backyards are stricken by moles. The signals that they are around are dying plants and mounds of soil. Most of these little animals certainly know how to make a nuisance of themselves. Along with a length of between five and fourteen inches, moles have small tails and can be black, brown or occasionally white. It is possible to catch them with traps. You should get good results by correctly placing the traps in their tunnels. You can also try setting off a smoke bomb within the entrance to a tunnel, which could force a mole to the surface or suffocate it.

You may well need a professional if your problem is multiple pests in the house.
