Bug infestation is a very common household problem, especially during summer. Every home suffers from a particular form of bug infestation once in a while. The most common bugs that can be found in households are cockroaches, flies, mosquitoes, ants, and termites. These bugs may not seem very dangerous but if they are ignored and grow in number, they can cause significant damage to your property, and they can also spread deadly diseases. To avoid suffering from severe problems, you must take the prevention of bug infestation seriously.
There are a lot of ways to handle bug infestation. Among them is through chemical repellants and pesticides. To eradicate these annoying creatures, you can trap them, or your can poison them. However, aside from using pesticides and chemical repellents, there are also safer and more effective methods. Using chemical repellants on your own is usually discouraged especially if you do not have any knowledge and experience in applying such chemicals. Improper application of these chemicals will only lead to more problems for you and your family.
Aside from poisoning these bugs, you can also consider trapping or drive them away. However, the most efficient method is to prevent bugs infestation altogether. Preventive bug control is much more effective than trying to address the bug infestation once it occurs.
To accomplish this, you must avoid creating breeding places for these bugs. You must throw any junk or keep the trash bin tightly closed in your property. You must also get rid of stagnant water in empty cans, rubber tiles or even in your swimming pool since these are the most likely breeding areas for mosquitoes and flies.
You must also properly seal your food, even your pet food since this can attract cockroaches and rodents. You must also clean and sanitize your kitchen or other food surfaces. Ensuring cleanliness at home can discourage bugs from dwelling in it. You can also add some barrier to your property to deter pests from entering your property. One of the things you should consider installing in your home to keep bugs away are magnetic screen doors. Magnetic screen doors provide you with the benefits of a framed screen door without the encumbering problems. They provide a hands-free entrance and exit for both people and pets while keeping pests and bugs out.
Also consider sealing any holes, gaps, or cracks in your doors, windows, and even your walls. You must also put screens to your doors and windows to prevent flies and mosquitoes from entering.
Aside from all these, you can also apply simple home remedies to get rid of bugs. For example, you can also use boric acid since it can eliminate flies and cockroaches once these bugs ingest it. You can also use a brewed catnip tea and spray it in various areas to repel moths and cockroaches. However, for a more efficient bug control solution, you can always call upon a professional pest control company. They can easily get rid of any existing bugs in your property and prevent them from ever coming back.
