Finding pests in your home can be very distressing. Pests such as rats, mice, ants etc can cause great damage to your home and its environment, either by littering it or by damaging your household items. But there are reasons why that they head towards your home. Here are a few reasons why these unwanted pests raid your property:
General Cleanliness – Rats, mice and cockroaches love dirty and cluttered properties. To avoid this you should make sure that your house is kept neat and tidy at all times with no leftover food left around. Vacuum your home often and get rid of dust. Dispose off your rubbish properly to avoid pests.
Holes and Gaps – Pests like rats and mice find their way through the tiniest openings of your house. You need to keep a proper check of the surroundings to make sure that there are no unwanted holes and gaps in the walls or doors.
Food – Never leave food open and lying around. These pests raid your place in search of food. Cover all food items properly. Keep them in the fridge and avoid keeping food in an open view.
Fix Leaks – If you have any pipes or taps leaking, fix them at your earliest convenience. Pests like silverfish tend to be found more in damp places. To avoid this, try keeping the kitchens and bathroom as dry as possible.
Roof – Make sure your roof is sealed at all times. Pigeons and even squirrels can enter you house through an opening in your roof and find itself a comfortable place. Fix any broken tiles and possible points of entry.
