Don’t Make Your Home Liveable

Insects and pests, like humans, need certain resources to live. These are water, shelter and of course, food. If these are not present in your home, then you have a better chance of avoiding unwanted tenants.

Not providing a food source is simple enough; organic material, such as food scraps in an open rubbish bin or on carpets and glasses are very inviting. Also, cans half filled with beverages can easily provide a meal for pests. Ensure that you vacuum regularly to remove food crumbs, keep benchtops clean and place rubbish in a closed receptacle.


Store Food in the Correct Manner

Leaving cereal in the cupboard in a poorly sealed bag is a definite invitation for cockroaches and other intruders. The same goes for any other food items you may store in your pantry.

Always aim to store any pantry items, even spices, in tightly sealed plastic containers or glass jars. Aside from avoiding any pests moving in, you are protecting your health from dust and any germs that are flying around.


Do Not Allow Hide and Seek

We all know that dark places are spots in which pests like to hide. This means clutter around the home is a disaster waiting to happen.

Piles of clothing on the ground, books, newspapers and magazines stacked untidily and rubbish need to be cleared. Cracks and crevices in the walls or base of cupboards need to be sealed and regular cleaning of cupboards needs to be carried out.

With the professional help of Bob Gunn Termite Solutions and some simple house cleaning rules, your home can remain pest-free and a healthier place for you and your family to live. Arrange for a pest inspection today.
