Despite some of our best efforts to keep our homes clean, we sometimes get unwanted visitors that lurk and linger in our homes without us even knowing it. To prevent any of these vermin and creepy crawlies from spreading disease in our homes or contaminating our living spaces, the best thing to do is to eradicate them as soon as possible.

Yes, pests can show up in our homes randomly which isn’t much of an issue aside from giving you a little fright, but if you spot them on more than one occasion, then you may have a bigger problem. The best way to deal with these situations is to call pest control services to assess your home so they handle it accordingly.

The kind of pest control service you would need will depend on the pests you have. Although some services offer help with all kinds of pests, others are experts at managing just one variety. Each pest is dealt with in different ways—one process doesn’t work for all pests—so it’s best to call the service that deals with your specific problem.

Dealing with rats

Rats are one of the worst pests to have around your home. If you have one rat terrorizing your household, a mouse trap is all you might need. But if you have an infestation of rats living within your house, it’s best to leave it to pest control services to avoid health risks. 

Rentokil Philippines (www.rentokil.com/ph/) specializes in getting rid of these unwanted housemates by inspecting the source of the infestation to search for established colonies. By doing this, they not only eradicate the current population of rats but also prevent future colonies from forming.

How to prevent rat infestations

Unlike smaller pests, rats can’t easily find their way into homes. The reason for a possible rat problem in your home may lie in your structure. Try to look around your home exterior if there are any areas where the structure is damaged—this could be a potential point of entry for rats.

If it’s not in your home’s structure, it could be in your plumbing. They may be coming from your drainage system so a quick assessment of your home may help prevent infestations in the future.

Catching cockroaches

Cockroaches are equally as bad as rats as they contaminate every area they tread so when you have cockroaches beginning to invade your home, you have to deal with it as soon as possible. With cockroaches, it’s harder to find the source of infestation because their nests are often out of plain sight.

Thankfully, pest control services like Tekkpest (www.tekkpest.com) know exactly how to spot them. They find what exactly is attracting these pests inside your home and, from there, find their breeding spots. Then they sanitize and prevent future infestations by sealing off any entry points in your home.

How to keep cockroaches away

Keeping cockroaches out of your house is simple—don’t leave any food lying around. Dirty dishes stacked up in the sink or food crumbs laying on the floor are the perfect lures for these nasty pests. Clean your home and throw away your garbage daily so they won’t be attracted by food scraps. As long as nothing is tempting them to enter your home, they will stay out.

Away with the ants

Ants aren’t typically considered pests by many. They don’t cause much trouble and don’t bring any diseases into your home. But if you have an ant infestation that is already invading your kitchen cabinets, food jars, and even your bedrooms, then it’s time to call pest control services.

Termaxpro (www.termaxpro.com) is an all-around pest control service that eradicates ants by dealing with them at the source. Ant colonies can begin anywhere and they may be growing in your home without you knowing it. Pest control deals with the problem by killing the heart of the colony first—the queen.

How to get rid of ants

Just like cockroaches, ants are attracted by food sources. If you spot an ant trying to sniff around your pantry or kitchen cabinets, take that as the potential start of a colony. Ants are scouts that lead the colony to the nearest food source, so don’t let even one ant get into any of your food, or else they’ll bring the entire population with them. Keep your food properly sealed at all times and don’t leave food on your kitchen counters.
