Thinking Like a Bug to Prevent Pests
If you’re like most people in London, you are a busy person who doesn’t have a lot of time to deal with anything other than the essential things that are popping up in your life. And, unless you are a pest control officer, dealing with an invasion of pests is not on your ” to do” list. So, make sure they are never a problem for you by working to think like a pest to keep your home free from their favourite things. We have all of the advice that you need to do this effectively.
First of all, make sure you do your best to keep them out in the first place by making sure that all of the holes in your home (inside and outside) are sealed up. A hole is a door for them, so make sure that the door is locked so they stay outside!
Additionally, if they do get into your home, make sure you don’t have anything lying around to keep them interested in staying. The main thing they love is leftover food. Do your best to wash your dishes after each meal, or at least rinse them off so that pests can’t tell there was food on them, to begin with.
Another thing that bugs love is standing water. If you have any leak, make sure you clean it up as soon as possible. Insects like making homes in those moist, dark kinds of places. If you suspect you have cockroaches, for example, look closely in these damp areas for the signs of a cockroach infestation there. The same thing goes for clutter and dirt. These are perfect places for bugs to make nests and lay their eggs for the next round of pests to bother you, so make sure you keep your home as clean as possible to help deter them from finding a spot to move into.
Last but not least, you have to know exactly what you’re dealing with. Different pests love various things. So, try to get a grip on what type they are if you find pests in your London home, and make sure you take away their favourite things so that they will want to pack their things and leave again. There are lots of guides online to tell what you have living in your home and what best to do.
