Having Insects and pests in your home is never welcome. Insects may bite hard and may cause irritating swells on the skin. The swell may turn into rashes and may even last for a week. So know how to treat them and know how to prevent insects from entering your home.
The first step is to know where their nests are. Remember that no matter how many times you wipe them off your walls, they will have all the reasons to come back if their nest is inside your house. Ants pop up from anywhere. One moment, you were licking a scoop of ice cream, the next moment ants are coming after those drops you left on the floor. Fleas, on the other hand, are minute insects that can cause bad rashes on the skin. Usually, they thrive in dust-filled sheets or dirty pets at home. Chiggers just love the sight of skin. They can burrow deep down and bite you as much as they can, leaving your skin severely itching afterward. The First thing is always to keep your home clean. Especially the corners that are hard to reach.
Getting rid of ants:
There is no need to buy expensive sprays and powders; you can find the solutions to your problems! A do-it-yourself ant repellent is easy to make. Mix a half cup of white sugar and two tablespoons of borax in a cup of warm water. Shake the solution well and spray it to where the ants usually crawl on. You can soak a sponge or a cotton ball in the solution and place them in the corners of the house. In the ingredients, the white sugar will serve as a bait, the borax as the killer ingredient. Another way is to mint them away! Yes, Ants do not like the smell of mint so grow some mint in a pot and place it in the kitchen where ants are normally seen.
Getting rid of fleas and chiggers:
When fleas thrive in the home, it usually means one thing, you have a pet. Fleas usually hide under the animal skin. They love the conditions and temperatures of the animal and stay there while it is damp and ready for egg-laying. Always keep you pet clean. Make sure you clean wash and dust the place where your pet sleeps at night. You can use specially formulated sprays that will kill fleas. Remember that your pet will get fleas from other animals. So whenever your pet goes to the vet and comes back a good wash with an anti-flea shampoo will prevent more fleas from coming into your home.
The basic rule is always to clean up. Leaving food in the kitchen overnight, Not doing the dishes after a meal are all magnets for insects. Keep your house and surroundings clean, and you can have a pest free environment.
