Get Rid Of these Pests Now!

Insects are present everywhere in the house, but if you are a stickler for cleanliness you certainly do not want these pests to share your home. Environmental cleaning services in Dubai are increasingly using green products to get rid of pests. You may want to try it too. Here are a few natural ways to get rid of some pests.

Ants:

Keeping ants out of the house may seem impossible but not anymore. Here are some interesting ways to keep them at bay –

Soapy water – spray it on the point of entry.

Mint Leaves – sprinkle some around the points of entry.

Cucumber peels or slices – place at the point of entry. The ants have an aversion for cucumber and will move away from it.

Citrus Oil– Spray it around the ant nest. The ants will leave and go away.

Cayenne Pepper– sprinkling peppers around the ant hole will make the ants abandon the nest.

 

Cockroaches:

Cockroaches thrive on dirt and crumbs. The best way to keep them out of your house it to maintain top class hygiene. If you still get cockroaches then here is what you can do:

Diatomaceous Earth – sprinkle this around the kitchen and places where the roaches are seen most often. The tiny particles are harmful to the cockroaches and kill them

Soap Spray – use soap solution to get rid of cockroaches. The earth gets into their exoskeleton eventually killing the cockroach.

Beer Trap – Roaches love beer. So, take a plastic bottle, cut it in half and invert the top half over the bottom half in such a way as it forms a sort of a funnel leading inwards. Fill the bottom with beer and leave it in a place where the cockroaches are most evident. The cockroaches will crawl inside the funnel for the beer and will get trapped inside as they will not be able to get out.

Catnip – is a natural deterrent for cockroaches. Place a few leaves around the areas where you do not want the roaches. Or prepare a decoction from the leaves and spray it around the crevices and cracks in the walls where cockroaches live.

Fleas:

If you have pets at home it is highly likely that you may have an infestation of fleas sometime or the other. Flea bites can be extremely uncomfortable and can get infected. Getting rid of fleas can be quite tricky. Here are some non-toxic ways to deal with it.

Bath – Bathe and comb your pet regularly. Use a flea treatment so they do not get infested again. Use a citrus infusion to bathe your dogs, do not use it on cats. Citrus is a natural flea repellant.

Garlic and Yeast– Cook garlic and add it to your dog’s food along with brewer’s yeast. This too helps to keep the fleas away.

Vacuum – all rugs and soft furnishings should be vacuumed regularly till you are sure that all the fleas are gone. Place some flea powder in the vacuum bag and always empty it outside away from the house.

There are many more natural remedies to keep other pests away. We will discuss these from time to time in our blogs. So keep reading our blogs for more interesting articles.

Cockroaches sneak their way easily into your homes.

Pesky Pests: Environmental Cleaning Services Dubai

Living in Dubai you have to be very familiar with the pests that can creep into your home without warning. You suddenly find the cockroaches sneaking out in the dark, a line of ants marching across your carpet and if you are not careful, even a rat or a snake can make its way into your house. Environmental cleaning services Dubai can handle most of these pests but, if you do not have a regular cleaning service to clean your house, here are a few tips to avoid having your home overrun by pests.

Prevent Pest Entry

If you find that your house is being overrun by pests, this means that your home is compromised in some way. There may be cracks, crevices and holes that allow pests entry into your home. Of course, the pests can also get into the house through the open doors, but they prefer to sneak their way in from areas where no human is present.

Pests enter into houses looking for safe places to easily find food, water and a place to live and breed. If you deny them these basic needs, you may find that your house is pest free.

Make your Home Pest Resistant

Yes, that is the best way to prevent the pests from entering your home. Make it harder for them to get into your house and they may decide to go elsewhere. Using screen doors and wire mesh screen on windows helps in keeping down mosquitoes, geckos, flies, bees and other such pests out of your house. Just having these on all the outside opening in your house will keep out all manners of insects from your home.

Fill in the cracks and holes

Filling in all the holes and cracks in your outside walls will prevent rodents and other such pests from entering the house. Find all entry points and seal them off. Rats, especially are very destructive. When you find a rat hole in your house, make sure you stuff it in with crushed glass shards and then fill it in with concrete or cement. The crushed glass prevents the rats from gnawing their way back into the house.

Seal all the cracks in the walls to prevent pests from finding hiding places where they can scoot if they sense danger. This is time-consuming and environmental cleaning services Dubai may not do it for you. You may have to get down to it yourself, but it will be worth it.

Leave no Food

Dispose of all the food waste properly so that the pests do not feed on it. Whether it is cockroaches or ants, they come into your home and breed only if there is food. So make sure that you clean up the kitchen and dining area of all the food at night. Remove all crumbs and seal all food in airtight containers where the critters cannot get to it.

Cleaning Helps to Keep Pests Out

Regular cleaning helps to keep the pests out. Hence, deep cleaning of the house at least twice a year is useful. It helps in discovering places where the pests enter your home as well as hide. You should call in Environmental Cleaning Services Dubai to help you with the deep cleaning and sanitization of your house.
