Is compost used in your garden? You may attract a great deal of bugs this way. When using compost, be sure to not use it in soil close to your house and also keep pets and children from areas where you use compost. Keep it from plants as well, because the bugs that it attracts could begin eating your plants. Keep your rugs well vacuumed to eradicate pests in the home. Vacuuming will allow you to suck up the bugs as well as the crumbs that are attracting them. When you finish vacuuming, dispose of the bag or empty the canister.
While high-traffic areas of the house may reveal no issues, inspect the entire structure often. If part of your house’s support structure is underground, then your house may be subject to subterranean termites who can eat the area of house that you do not see very often. Check out your basement and any other underground area. You will not have as many pests if your home is clean. Never leave your dishes in a sink for too long. Wash your dishes on a regular basis, using either your hands or a dishwasher. Keep your garbage can clean by washing the lid and container. You should avoid leaving garbage bags in your home for more than a couple of days. The more you put effort into this, the better off you are.
To reduce the amount of mosquitoes around your home, get rid of any areas where there is standing water. Stagnant water is where mosquitoes deposit their eggs and the larvae develop. Search around flowerpots, your home, and your garden hose. These areas are likely culprits for standing water.
