Eliminating Pests: How to Live Bug-Free

Any unwanted animal which has invaded your home is considered a pest, but homeowners most frequently complain about bugs, rodents and squirrels. Because many of these pests are so small, it is easy to forget that they are living in the world all around us. While they certainly have their role in the circle of life, that does not mean that we want to be graced with their presence. 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.

If you want your home to stay pest free, you must not give the pests a reason to move in. One of the main attractions for animals is an easy source of food. 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. Wash your dishes daily, and keep all your food in the refrigerator. When you make a meal, pack it away in an air tight container almost immediately after enjoying it. It is important that you do not leave any food sources available for them to want to come in. 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. Wipe down your counters each evening before bed. Insects love sugar and sugary things, therefore, rinse out your glasses and cups and either load them into your dishwasher or wash them immediately. Many insects also seek out moisture. Therefore keep your bathroom’s and kitchen’s surfaces dry and always fix any leaks as soon as possible.

Pests often enter the home by way of small cracks and holes. Take care of these entryways to avoid giving insects an easy route into your home. Use a sealant or caulking on all openings to prevent pests from making a way into your home.

A tidy outside space will also deter animals. Avoid stacking up wood next to your house and always clean and sweep garden areas at the end of each season. 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. Keep your house and surroundings clean and everything else will work out on its own.

Coping With Garden Pests To Keep It Looking Nice

You’ll never be able to get rid of all of them, but you need to do something, because you don’t want your hard work completely wasted. Insects are a dilemma as they can conceal themselves under the soil, in weeds or piles of leaves. Your first line of attack should be to get rid of their hiding places wherever possible. Collect and remove old leaves, weeds and decaying stacks of vegetal matter. Dig over sections of soil and break up any clumps on a frequent basis. By doing this subterranean insect hideouts will likely be minimised.

Enjoying a walk in your garden, anticipating enjoying your plants, can be totally ruined by the discovery that they are suddenly full of holes Infestations are usually the responsible party. The most common ones are slugs, worms and birds, but there are also caterpillars, snails and perhaps, moles.

Pests must be eliminated without delay if you want to maintain the good health and look of your garden. If they’re given time to establish themselves they become very difficult to eradicate. The value of your house is enhanced by a healthy, well looked after garden.

Insects that devour your plants and diseases that disfigure and obliterate them should also be suppressed with dormant spray. You apply the spray as soon as the plants are dormant, near February/March. The instructions must be adhered to exactly to ensure the dormant spray is working properly. You could see your total garden die on account of careless use of the spray. Remember that you will also find insects that benefit your garden, and these you should keep. There is an additional class of garden pest, that lives not on the ground but in the sky – birds. A bird feeder could be an useful alternative to the futile exercise of trying to scare them away. Birds usually prefer a bird seed combination, which you can place in a feeder, and so doing you’ll save your garden from pecking damage. Not only will a feeder look nice, but it is likewise cheaper over time.

Keeping a dog could help, and yet only up to a point. Many gardens are tormented by moles. The signs that they are around are dying plants and piles of soil. These little animals certainly have learned to make a nuisance of themselves. A lot of these small-tailed fellows are occasionally white, but usually brown or black, and vary in length from 5 to 14 inches. Putting traps is an excellent method to try to get rid of them. Systematically capturing them comes with finding the tunnels of the moles and putting the trap in the right place. Smoke bombs triggered close to the tunnel entrance and spreading throughout the tunnels will hopefully get the moles.

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