Not only pests are annoying to deal with, but they can also contaminate your food and spread diseases, making you and your loved ones sick. Most species of pests can make their way into your home even through the tiniest gaps, so to keep them away, you need to make sure that your house is properly sealed-up. Here are a few ways that help preventing pests from entering your home. You can also simply hire a professional pest inspection melbourne company for controlling of pests.
Seal Your Doors Properly:
If your doors are not sealed properly, pests can easily find their way in. To solve this problem, you can install a threshold to close the gaps between the frame and the door. Re-caulking the frames can also help with keeping the bugs out.
Poorly Maintained Yards:
The most common problems in the yard are standing water and overgrown trees. To keep pests away, you need to remove the fallen leaves frequently, trim-down the grass regularly, and don’t allow water to get stagnated.
Passages In The Perimeter:
Cable wires and plumbing lines running through the inside and outside walls; the openings of dryers, vents and exhaust fans; and the cracks in siding and foundation are some of the passages that pests make use of to enter your home. So, you need to make sure that these areas are frequently inspected and properly sealed to prevent the entry of the pests.
Large openings like chimneys can’t be sealed, but they can be covered with screens or hardwire cloth. If required, you can spray a pesticide along the opening to ensure that the pests don’t get through this area.
