If you have spiders, mice, cockroaches and other pests in your home, that is not just gross but can be a big health issue for you and your family. If you have a really big pest problem, it is maybe best to call a professional, but if they just started to appear, we give you this four solutions that can solve your pest problem. This tricks will only take fifteen minutes of your time but can make a difference.
1. Tighten the front door
If you have problems with cavities between doors and floors, we have a solution for you. This is another effective way to prevent the entry of pests into your home, and this will also save you energy. Usually, blankets or patchwork will prevent almost all pests from entering your home. You need to be sure that your front door is in place, that there aren’t any gaps through which pests can enter. This will also prevent the heat leaving your house.
2. Use a vacuum cleaner
It is certain that you will not be able to seal every hole and keep just every creature not to enter your house. This is the moment when weekly suction becomes desirable. You will suck all the insects that chew before they smash and leave the stench (stinking) or stains on the house (from some varieties of stinking). The same is true for terrible cocksuckers. Also, with this, you will remove all the potential food they need so they will just move someplace else where they can find food they need – and it will be away from your house.
3. Clean the mess
In addition to the weekly suction, separate at least 15 minutes a week to empty a bunch of newspapers or spam and remove a bunch of clothes from your floors. All these things serve as dark hiding places for insects. This way, you will be rid of bugs, spiders, and stinkers. These creatures live in a mess people leave behind. Dark enclosed spaces where dust collects, where crumbs of food can be left, and where is worm are their home.
4. Repair the tap
Insects need water to survive, and the most common source for them is the faucet leaking. Repairing the tap is a great way to reduce the number of insects in your apartment, and at the same time, it’s also useful for your wallet and planet. If you don’t know how to solve your problem with the tap, here is how you can do it. Turn off the water inlet under the sink and release the screw at the bottom of the faucet. Lift the handle, remove the washers and moving parts and immerse them in white vinegar. Replace those parts that have cracks or voids. Wipe all parts and screw the tap again. This will prevent mice, cockroaches, and spiders from passing through.
