Written by admin. Posted in Pest Control Tips

Have you come across some evidence that something is getting into your pantry? Do you tend to hear scurrying from within your ceiling? If you do, you might have pests. Keep reading for great tips on getting rid of pests.

Use sticky traps in order to snare the brown recluse spiders in your home. They can hide very well and they are hard to kill with pesticides. These spiders are nocturnal, so they look for food after dark. Put the traps behind furniture to get them where they live.

TIP! If you are having an issue with stink bugs, remember not to stomp or smash on them. Doing so will release a foul odor into your home.

There are dogs trained to sniff out termites so you can know for sure whether you have them. A human termite inspector can only verify that about a third of your home is safe. If you get a dog that can find them, they most likely ensure the safety of your entire residence. They smell for methane gas, which is a byproduct of the wood the termites are eating.

If you think you have cleared up a bedbug infestation, think again. Bedbugs can lay dormant for a year without food. So it is important to close all points of entry. Bedbugs will disappear if they have nowhere to hide.

Seal food that isn’t being used. If there’s one thing for which pests will make a beeline, it is food, so you don’t want to tempt them. Full trash bags are another attraction, so remove these as soon as possible. Garbage is also known to attract insects.

TIP! One of the ways that you can reduce the amount of centipedes and bugs in your house is to get a dehumidifier. This device will help to take the moisture out of the air, which is an environment that bugs love to go to.

Keep up with leaks around your home. Pests are attracted to a water source. The pests might sense there is a leak from far away. Don’t contribute to your pest invasion. Use a little elbow grease to stop the leak, or call in a professional plumber who can do the job for you.

When considering new trees for your yard, pay attention to where you place them, keeping them away from your house. Rodents then climb your trees and enter your home through the attic or roof. At a minimum, be sure they’re 15 feet from the house.

If you routinely collect recyclables, be certain they are always well-rinsed. Rinse soda cans and bottles carefully so the sugar does not attract pests. The soda needs to be rinsed clean before anything is put inside the garage.

TIP! One of the ways that you can prevent mosquitoes from coming to your house is to eliminate the standing water that you have outdoors. This can be anything from a puddle to a kiddy pool, as you will want to drain all the water in these, especially in the summer.

You need to check your whole house, even if many areas usually don’t show signs of pests. Subterranean termites can cause a lot of damage before you see any signs of their existence. Make sure you have crawl spaces and basement areas carefully examined.

When trees fall down in the yard, dispose of them. Chop it up to make firewood. If you do not have a use for it, you can sell it or give it to someone. Do not forget to dispose of the stump, as well. Termites will make a beeline for the stump if it just left outside.

Eliminate mosquito habitat to eliminate mosquitoes. If you notice any standing water, make sure you drain it. Mosquitoes are known to live near water sources.

TIP! Make sure that every single night, you do the dishes in a dishwater or at least wash the food off of the dishes in the sink. The last thing that you will want to do is leave food in the sink, which can be a breeding ground for insects to come in your home.

Pests like to live in drains. Inspect and clean your drains on a monthly basis by either pouring some drain cleaner or using a snake through your drains. Debris and other things can cause mold to grow inside them, giving pests a great place to live.

If you spot spiders inside, remember that they may be there because they eat other bugs which may be in your home. To reduce this possibility, dust and vacuum often. This will decrease the amount of bugs, which means it will decrease the amount of spiders in your home.

With this information, you should be able to figure out how to repel the pests that are keeping you up at night. Reclaim your home using the tips you’ve learned. It may not be easy, but you can be successful.

Bedbugs have many effects on the human population


  • They drink our blood and in severe cases can cause Anemia.
  • Bedbugs harbor in one of the areas we find most comfortable, our bed.
  • bedbugs can cause a feeling of getting bitten and itchy for a time after the infestation is eradicated (delusional parasitosis).
  • Bedbugs can cause a financial imposition, especially if not dealt with quickly and correctly.

Bedbugs are parasitic insects that live exclusively on blood, they prefer human blood. Bedbugs seem to prefer staying on or close to the human host where they sleep thus the name bedbug. Bedbugs are nocturnal creatures (only come out at night) so they do their feeding at night while you sleep.You cannot feel its bite due to the bedbugs ability to anesthetize the skin and thin the blood so they can feed. Fluids from the bedbugs can transfer to the human host, fortunately bed bugs are not known to be a vector of any diseases to humans unlike ticks or mosquitoes.


A mature bed bug is an oval-bodied insect, brown to red-brown in color, wingless, and flattened top to bottom. Unfed bugs are 1/4 to 3/8 inch long, and the upper surface of the body has a crinkled appearance. A bug that has recently fed is engorged with blood, dull red in color, and the body is elongated and swollen. Eggs are white, and are about 1/32 inch long. Newly hatched bugs are nearly colorless.

Life Cycle

Bed bugs undergo a gradual metamorphosis (change in form) and the young resemble the adult. The young are called nymphs. Under ideal conditions bugs feed regularly when temperatures are above 70° F. Eggs are deposited in batches of from 10 to 50 in crevices of bed frames, floors, walls and similar household sites. When fresh, the eggs are coated with a sticky substance that causes them to adhere to any object on which they are deposited. Eggs are not deposited at temperatures lower than 50° F. Eggs hatch in 6 to 17 days but may take as long as 28 days in cooler temperatures. The nymphs begin to feed as soon as they can locate a host. They molt 5 times before reaching maturity and the nymphal period lasts about 6 weeks. There may be up to three generations per year in our climate.
