Home is the place where you live comfortably. Again, home is also a cosy shelter for uninvited guests like cockroaches, rats, termites and bed bugs. They invade your home unknowingly and before you know it, they’ve already caused a large-scale damage to your belongings. Pests can enter from the cracks and holes in the walls, gaps on the exterior, door, windows and practically, from anywhere. They come in search of food, water and safety. A pest infestation, once it happens, can be very difficult to get rid of. You must have heard the saying, ‘make hay while the sun shines’ and when it comes to deterring pests, you’re better protected with Pestico, professional pest control services in Kolkata.
The certified and well-trained pest controllers adopt advanced techniques and procedures to pest-proof your home. Summer, monsoon or winter, your home is clean, healthy and pest-free throughout the year. Let us look at some of the most effective ways to limit pest activity in your property.
Steps to Create a Pest-free Environment in Your Home:
1. Seal your doors
Sealing is actually keeping out the intruders by locking the door. If you closely examine, perhaps you’ll be surprised to find the huge amount of gaps and cracks available for pests to sneak into. Installing a door sweep under the door can help in filling the gap between the door and threshold. Weather stripping the door also keeps pests from entering your home.
2. Add screens to your windows
Pests creep in when they find the windows open. And we’re talking about flying insects likes mosquitoes, cockroaches and ants. Flying cockroaches terrifying you is a more common sight during the summer months. So, should you keep your windows closed and not enjoy the cool breeze? You don’t need to do that when you install screens at your windows.
Professionals offering pest control services in Kolkata recommend placing screens of 20 mesh or smaller. Make sure the window screens, also known as bug screen or fly screen, are made of long lasting materials like metal, plastic wire or fibreglass.
3. Cracks on the exterior walls? Repair them
Do the exterior walls of your home have tiny cracks and holes? No wonder why mice, termites, ants and other pests are finding a way inside your dwelling. When you hire certified pest control services in Delhi, Bangalore or elsewhere, the professionals not only treat the existing infestation but also determine the source and take necessary action. This includes carefully examining the exterior walls to find any cracks or holes. It is followed by sealing the gaps with acrylic, silicon or polyurethane sealants. And when it’s done, your home is a no entry zone for termites, ants, rats and other pests.
4. Store your food properly
As we always say, pests are enormously attracted to food. After all, even they feel hungry and thirsty, isn’t it? If you don’t want to share your home with them, be very careful in eliminating their favourite things, food and water. Store food ingredients in sealed containers, tightly close the jar lids before storing, avoid leaving food scraps on the floor, regularly dispose of food wastes properly and use trash bins with a lid. If you spill drinks, clean it up immediately. Repair leaks and other plumbing issues for which water is accumulating in and around your home. When they don’t find food or water in and around your property, you automatically enjoy a pest-free living!
