Pest infestations are at its worst during summer in Australia – probably not much what everyone wants to experience.
We expect to see the warning signs of invasion that comes along the ‘heat wave.’ The higher the temperature rises, the graver the infestation becomes.
Being mindful of your surroundings and pest activities is tantamount to living a happier life, free from any pest interference and its damage to your property. Here are some tips that you can do to keep these bugging pests at bay:
Observe and take note
It’s important that you are well aware of seasonal pests. Take note of what types of pest attack in certain times of the year, to prepare yourself with appropriate pest preventive measures that you can practice at home.
Clearing away all the factors that attract pest is key to avoiding them. This practice includes: removing any uneaten pet food near from entry or access points; proper garbage disposal; trimming overgrown and overhanging plants;and cleaning any spilled food or crumbs on the floor or countertop.
Eliminate access points
Make sure to leave pests with ZERO chance to enter your property. Always keep doors and windows closed. Install screens on your windows, chimneys, and other possible pest entries. Seal cracks and crevices. Repair broken pipes and tunnels.
Ensure proper food storage
The availability of food is what most likely attracts pests into your property. It’s important to take a close watch at your foodstuff, and be sure to keep your food properly sealed. Make a habit of putting your food in plastic or glass containers with tight lids. A thin plastic bag will not often do its job, and some pests can bite onto it so quickly.
Keep your stuff organised. Get rid of lumpy messy piles of clothes that can be home to roaches and other insects.
Do a regular pest inspection.
Always inspect for signs of pest infestation both inside and outside your home. While inside, inspect the seams of bed covers or mats where parasites like bed bugs or fleas can be residing; check inside your cabinets and cupboards; inspect the ceiling or attic that can be home to rodents as well. Outside, look for blossoming plants where flying insects are most attracted. Check the exterior walls for bugs that are warming themselves by the sun.
Get a pest control
As much as you want to keep bugging pests away, it’s essential to have pest professionals perform a comprehensive pest control at your property.
