Top Three Pest Control Methods

Cockroaches, ants, mice, and other pests and rodents enter homes searching for warmth, shelter, and food. Once inside, they repopulate fast and become an out-of-control problem in a matter of weeks. Pest infestations are gross and costly since they ruin fixtures, emit odors into the home, destroy food and damage the home’s structure. Getting pests out of a home can be a costly endeavor that only increases the worse the problem becomes. Some pests carry diseases that they can transmit to humans and pets.

2) Keep the Home Clean

A clean home deters pests like mice and cockroaches that come inside with hopes of acquiring a delicious meal or 60 for themselves, family, and to store for the coming winter months. Clean the floors every day, take out the trash when it is full, wash dishes and never let them compound in the sink, and make sure to wipe down tables, appliances, etc. after use. Even a few crumbs can attract pests and cause big problems. It costs nothing to keep the house clean. On top of keeping pests away, a clean home poses fewer health risks and brings the family more comfort.
