It is bad enough that pests are around us, but it is even worse when they find their ways into our houses. From spider, ants, and termites to stinky bugs and flies. You are probably not welcoming them inside, and by now, you probably already know that it is impossible to prevent each of them from getting in. In this article, you will be able to read about common household pests and how to get rid of them. Let’s take a look at the list:
Ants are possibly the most annoying and common pests in our homes. They can enter through small cracks and lay nests around and in your home. You can get rid of them by spraying lemon juice or boric acid along the crevices and cracks that you have seen them entering.
Termites are often referred to as “silent destroyers” and they are an absolute nightmare. They are hard to spot while they are munching away at your furniture and your home’s substructure. To prevent them from invading things around you home, install a barrier around your house. You can also use a liquid pesticide, building materials infused with pesticides and wood treatment to get rid of these bugs.
These bugs are quite sneaky and they can be picked up anywhere. They are difficult to find and even more difficult to control. They hide in various things like personal belongings, luggage, and – even you. According to the experts from ExpertPestControl, once you encounter them, the best thing you can do is to call a professional to deal with them. You can also wash and dry your bed covers, remove all clutter from your home, which will make it easier to find these bed bugs.
No matter how much you sweat and chase these insects, they will always come back. Flies are the most annoying insects that simply insist on invading our personal space and annoying us. You can keep them out by making sure that your home is sanitized and clean, as well as keeping windows closed (especially during rainy periods). You can also use Lemongrass Oil as a natural repellant, as well as using herbs like mint, basil, and lavender to deter them.
During spring, these pests become the most annoying ones. Why? It is quite obvious that it is because of the odor they produce. They like to creep into houses for warmth and they will sneak in screens, holes, and cracks. Same as ants you can get rid of them by spraying lemon juice or boric acid along the crevices and cracks that you have seen them entering.
House spiders love to hide in ceiling corners, windows, and above or underneath fixtures. You can notice the presence of spiders by their cobwebs. You should get rid of them by vacuuming the cobwebs and spiders. Also, you should spray corners and cracks with insecticide.
These are the most common pests found in homes and there are various ways to get rid of them. However, if you are not able to get rid of the pests, consider calling a professional that will help you.
