While some pests can still find a way into your home even if it is really clean, in many cases the best way to prevent them from entering your home is simply by cleaning your home. But better contact a pest control service when it becomes out of control as their experience and technical know-how can defeat any ant invasion.
Here is some cleaning advice to keep bugs and pests away:
Clean possible hiding places – If your basement has a lot of cluttered corners, it can easily attract pest. Dark and cluttered basements are favourite hiding places or rodents, spiders, and a lot of different bugs. Avoid storing loose items and start organizing them. Do not forget your yard and cut back vegetation around your home to deter bugs and pests.
Remove their food sources – Pests always look for food sources and your home, especially your kitchen, is a hot spot for bugs and pests. Ants are mostly attracted to any food supply they can find in your home. During your cleaning session, remove expired goods. When it comes to staple goods such as cereal, flour, sugar and the likes, use plastic containers with lids to protect and store them better.
Remove collection of water – If pests have a suitable place to get water and moisture, they will stay in your home and you may just have to deal with them as an infestation is on the way. Check for potential spots where moisture can build up which will mostly include your plumbing fixtures.
