Do not forget about getting your home tested for pests before buying. Certain kinds of infestation are obvious, but remember that you will not really know what type of pest problems you will have until you live in the house for a little while. Nobody likes to hear about bugs that live in their bedding plus other parts of the environment. A lot of people have an allergy to dust mites, and if you don’t, you should still strive to get rid of them. Keep bedding washed in really hot water every week, and use pillow covers that are non-permeable.
You should vacuum your rugs and carpets at least once a week. Vacuuming gathers up all of the ants from within the rooms, as well as small pieces of trash or food that may attract more outsiders. When you are finished, dispose of the bag. When you have terrible dust mite allergies, try wiping down your plastic cover on the mattress each day. Be sure to wash linens daily, especially the pillow. Make sure all the pillows, not just the ones you use, have protective covers on them. The pests want to go to areas that are wet and dark. Check your home for standing water and areas with excess moisture. These areas are very attractive to pests. If you keep these areas ventilated you shouldn’t have any pest problems. Borax is very useful in fighting insect infestations. Put borax in the areas affected by pests like roaches. Make sure it is attractive to your pests so that they will eat it. Mix it with some sugar for a great insect bait.
Sometimes, the best methods for eliminating houseflies are the classic ones. Using a fly swatter or sticky strips to kill the flies is very effective. And they are poison-free. You should only use sprays according to the instructions so that you ensure that your family and pets are not harmed.
Ants have a way of getting inside the house and finding the kitchen. Since ants do not like cloves, you can rid yourself of an infestation by putting ground cloves anywhere food is near. Keep them out of a home by sprinkling the cloves around the outside of a house.
