Use some hairspray to get rid of wasps, bees or hornets. The hairspray is a double threat, as it kills the bugs while repelling others with its scent.
Never buy a house until it has been inspected first. Certain signs of infestation are easy to recognize, but keep in mind that you have no way of knowing what kind of pest is hiding under the home or in the insulation until you stay in the home for a few days.
Keep pests out of your home by using a perimeter spray outside. Apply this spray on the foundation, the porch, steps and on doors and windows as well. As you are spraying, check surfaces for cracks and nooks that can be the point of entry for pests. Use a caulk or sealer to plug these small areas off.
If you are wondering if you have termites, get a dog that can smell them. If an inspector checks your house on his own, he is only able to confirm that you are about one-third free of termites. A dog that is trained to sniff them out can cover 100% of your home. Trained dogs can detect methane gas that results from the eating of wood by termites.
If there are pests flying around inside, it’s important to fix the screens around your home. This will also go far to keep crawling bugs out of the house, too. Fix holes that are now part of your screens.
As mentioned before, pest infestations are troubling and dangerous. Therefore, this issue should be addressed right away. These tips will be able to help you and get rid of pests that are plaguing you.
