Ants, cockroaches, fleas or flies in your home are up there with the biggest nuisances. All it takes is a few bugs in the kitchen or a rogue cockroach on the floorboards to make you feel as though your home isn’t at its cleanest. At Best 1 Cleaning we know how tricky pest control can be which is why we believe the best method for pest control is prevention.
With a few very simple changes, you can keep many of the most annoying household pests at bay.
A clean kitchen
Food scraps and dirty dishes are a haven for flies, cockroaches and creepy crawlies. Though it may be tempting to leave dishes in the sink overnight when it’s getting late – it’s always best to soak the dishes in water to avoid attracting unwanted guests! Get the sink full of water and leave the dishes in there instead of piled on the kitchen bench.
A sealed bin
The household bin is one of the biggest attractors for pests and if you’re looking to prevent the need for pest control services, keeping the bin clean and sealed is integral. Take out the garbage bin bag as soon as necessary and make a habit of cleaning the bin with disinfectant every two weeks.
Fly screens and screen doors
Opening windows can be a sure-fire way to allow mosquitos and flies into your home. Invest in sturdy fly screens and screen doors to allow a breeze to come through without letting in pests.
Keep eating contained to one room
Allowing the kids to take food into all the rooms of the house could also allow ants and cockroaches. Enforcing a rule that only allows food to be eaten in the kitchen, dining room and living room reduces the chance of bowls and scraps being left in bedrooms and it’s a good method of pest control.
Clear out the kitchen drain
Food scraps in the kitchen drain attract bugs! Make sure the drain is clear after every use.
