Pests are omnipresent. Even the most hygienic places end up having some kind of pests invading their clean spaces some time or other. It may appear that hospitals and high-quality hotels, clean all the areas meticulously, but even then these areas are also susceptible to some insects and parasites that need to be removed professionally.
Some of the most common tips shared by experts include the following.
- The gutters and another sewage area should be as clean as possible. This is the breeding ground for rats, mice, cockroaches and other such filthy creatures.
- The food items should be always covered, avoiding flies and other flying insects, which spread diseases.
- Do not allow water to stagnate anywhere near the living areas. This provides the perfect breeding place for flies and mosquitoes.
- Keep the beds and other upholstery clean. Wash your clothes and linen in hot water. Do not use your bed and furniture, if you have been traveling and stayed in hotels and lounges. This will prevent bed bugs from occupying the crevices.
- Try to fill in the holes and crevices at home to prevent the insects from creating their nests there.
- Try to avoid dark areas in the kitchen and other places. This will prevent the bugs from hiding.
- Use well-treated wood for furniture and in any structure inside the house. The wood kept for fireplace may also bring in ants and termites, so such wood should be stored away from home.
- The chimney should be covered to prevent any kind of insects/pests coming in from the roof.
- Storage areas should be uncluttered. These should be well lighted to keep cockroaches and rats away.
