Tips for Prevention
Before you leave for your trip, make sure to prepare your home for pest infestation. This includes getting rid of any unneeded animals, removing any clutter, and using insecticide to control pests.
Get rid of Unwanted Animals
If you have pets, get rid of them as soon as possible. Unwanted animals can help spread pest larvae throughout your home, leading to an infestation. To do this, remove all animals from the house by taking them away in a humane way or by trapping them.
Remove Mice and other rodents
Rodents can be a major source of Infestation, so it’s important to get rid of them as quickly as possible if you suspect they might be causing the problem in your home. Use a rodent exterminator to get the job done right and at a low cost.
Use Insecticide to Control Pests
Insecticides are often effective at controlling pests, but it’s important to use one that is safe for both you and the environment- check out our full list of compatible pesticides here . By applying an insecticide according to the directions, you can reduce the chances of creating more problems down the road and preventing infestations from happening in the first place!
Keep Your Home clean and free of clutter
When it comes to keeping your home clean and free of clutter, there are a few things you can do: fit every object into its rightful space (or clear out any excess storage), keep surfaces clean and free from dirt and debris, limit access to areas that may be used frequently (like bathrooms), and never leave items unsupervised on counters or floors- this will help keep pests at bay!
How to Remove Pests?
Rodents are a common pest in homes. A Rodenticide can help to remove them. To use the rodenticide, sprinkle it on the areas where pests are expected to occur, such as door hinges, switches, and window frames.
Use an Insecticide
Insecticides can be used to prevent pests from entering your home. Place them around food sources and places where they’re likely to enter (e.g., libraries and schools). Use a sprayer to apply the pesticide to the areas you’ve chosen, and follow the directions carefully.
Use a broom to clean the floors
Wiping down floors with a cloth or sponge can also help remove pests. Be sure not to damage surfaces by using too much force or spraying pesticides near water pipes or electrical cords!
Use a Furniture Cleaner
To clean furniture, use a Furniture Cleaner instead of sprayers or cleaning products made for other types of objects. Pour 1/4 cup of cleaner into each bucket and shake before using; then pour the cleaner onto the floor area you want cleaned and wait until it begins working its way through the object). Spit out any excess cleaner after use- this will keep your furniture looking new for years!
Prevention is key when it comes to removing pests from your home. Use a rodenticide, an insecticide, or a Furniture Cleaner to kill the pests before they can spread their infection. Be sure to keep your home clean and free of clutter in order to remove any potential obstacles to pest removal.
