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. Therefore, you need to be aware of how to secure your home against these animals. The following information will help you to keep pests at bay and live a bug-free life.

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 is therefore very important to this process. Items should be kept in secure packaging and storage containers, in either a refrigerator or kitchen cupboard. When you make a meal, pack it away in an air tight container almost immediately after enjoying it. Take out your trash often as well, so you do not have food scraps sitting around. Even if they come into your home, they will find no reason to linger and create a nest.

Making a clean home a priority will also deter another common pest; bugs. keep your floors clean and wipe away all spills as soon as they happen. Put used dishes in the dishwasher so that they are not left sitting out. Keep your floors and other surfaces dry to avoid attracting pests. In addition, if you notice a leak, make sure the situation is rectified.

Animals often enter homes when the seasons change and the weather turns cooler. Plug up spaces and crevices that seemingly offer easy passage into your home. Sealant or caulking should do the trick.

It is important to pick up around the outside of the house to discourage pests from nesting. Sweep up any plant and leaf debris, and never stack piles of wood near your house. 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. Cleanliness is key, and if you are able to do that, the rest will fall into place.

A Part Of Sustaining An Attractive Garden Is Managing Pests

Obviously, you want to keep your garden appearing as well as possible, so you have to take action, but it’s nigh impossible to get rid of all the pests. Insects are a problem simply because they can hide under the soil, in weeds or piles of leaves. One of the first things you need to do is eliminate the places where the insects live. Remove the weeds, the old leaves, and any decaying matter that the insects want to live in. You should turn the soil on a frequent basis, taking care to break up the clods. This will help eradicate any hiding areas in the soil.

The worst thing there is related to having a garden is walking out to check on your plants and uncovering holes in all the plants that looked fine the last time you saw them. Some of these holes which may have wrecked your plants are from pests. Birds, slugs, and worms are many of the garden pests that are the worst, as well as snails, caterpillars and even moles.

To keep your back garden in good shape, you will need to get rid of all of your pests at the earliest opportunity. The longer they remain, the less easy they’re going to be to get rid of. The value of your house is increased by a robust, well looked after garden.

Insects that devour your plants and diseases that disfigure and obliterate them should also be suppressed with dormant spray. February or March is the best time for this, mainly because then is the dormant time frame for plants. The dormant spray will not be effective until the instructions are thoroughly followed. Another reason to follow the directions is that when used incorrectly it could be lethal for your plants. Remember that you can also find insects that benefit your garden, and these you need to keep. You can also find all those winged pests, the birds. A bird feeder might be an useful alternative to the futile exercise of trying to scare them away. Birds typically choose a bird seed mix, which you can place in a feeder, and so doing you’ll save your garden from pecking damage. Birds lively around a feeder can look and sound attractive, and ultimately this will also cost less than other solutions.

Even though possessing a dog would be helpful, it certainly is not going to fix the situation entirely. For many garden owners their particular garden pest is the mole. If you have dying plants and discover small heaps of pushed-up soil then you’ll know they’re around. These little animals certainly have learned to make a nuisance of themselves. These small-tailed fellows are sometimes white, but most often brown or black, and vary in length from 5 to 14 inches. One method of eliminating them is by trapping. To accomplish this successfully you want to find their tunnels and choose the right position for the traps Smoke bombs triggered close to the tunnel entry 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.
