4 Simple Pest Control Tips

Before you call in “pest control” to eradicate bugs, insects and the like in your home, it’s a good idea to try a few simple pest control tips yourself.

The reason for this is because hiring a professional outfit that specializes in pest control can burn a hole in your pocket.

Keeping this in mind, here are 4 simple pest control tips that could keep your home free of pests:

#1: One of the simplest ways to kill insects and bugs is to use hairspray or perfume. However, with the latter, make sure you keep away from fire as it inflammable but most of all, avoid eye contact when using it.

#2: One way by which you can attract a lot of bugs and insects to your home is if you have a lot of compost which you would use for the garden. For this reason, it’s a good idea to not only keep the compost away from your home but your children as well as the plants too since bugs will eat the latter as well.

#3: It’s vital to seal food if you have this practice of storing food. The reason for this, in the case of not sealing it properly, insects will be drawn to it by its fragrance.

#4: Owning a trailer or camper means that rodents can make a part of it their home if it isn’t checked regularly. However in the case of small openings in your home through which rodents may enter, it’s a better idea to leave it that way because this will ensure that the bugs or insects in your home won’t live for very long.
