Have you see evidence suggesting that something is residing in your cabinets? Are you hearing tiny feet scampering about your home at night? If you do, you might have pests. This article contains some helpful hints for taking care of pests.
Use steel wool to fill up mouse holes. Rodents are unable to chew through the steel fibers. If you have any half-inch openings or larger in your home, you should stuff them with this steel wool. Rodents can slip through very small openings.
Outdoor perimeter sprays are great for insect prevention. Spray the foundation and all other outside areas near the home. Always look for cracks around the perimeter of the house. Use caulk or another filler to seal the gaps.
You can kill stinging insects around your home with hairspray. The hairspray is a double threat, as it kills the bugs while repelling others with its scent.
Keep all of your foods tightly sealed in a container. Pests like the smell of food, so don’t allow them to smell it. Whenever your trashcan becomes full, you should immediately take it out. Pests like this scent too.
Do you have a pest problem? Mix borax and sugar to eliminate them. Sugar attracts the ants, and the borax kills them. Make a trap by blending equal parts borax and sugar in a quart-sized jar. Poke holes through the lid to allow you to sprinkle it around the foundation and baseboards.
You should now be prepared to eliminate those pests from your home. Use what you have learned above and take back your home. Getting rid of the pests entirely could take a while, but once you do, you can sleep soundly without being awakened by skittering and buzzing.
