Pests are ever unwanted in households. Preventing pests from entering your home may sometimes leave you feeling helpless: No matter what you do, you’ll never quite keep them out. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

So, how can vermin be properly given the boot? Pco Kennedy, director of technical services for Jopestkil Kenya Pest Control, advises on the right ways to debug your home of pests infestation.

  1. Secure Your Perimeter Wall

The friendliest way to keep a home bug-free is to not let them enter in the first place, says Kennedy. Be aware of things that pests are attracted to. An open garbage can, with organic material or sugars can attract ants, flies, feral cats, and rodents. Mulches in the yard draw ants, termites and millipedes. Uncheked stagnant puddles of water can bring many pests problems such as cockroaches, rats, bats, ants, feral cats, mosquitoes and termites.

Also make sure to use constructive products like caulk and steel wool to seal all cracks in floors, walls and other surfaces that are larger than one-quarter of an inch and do regular checks of home insulation in your attic to make sure pests aren’t nesting there.

  1. Watch Where You Go Travelling

Pests can invade even if all the proper precautions are taken inside a home. You could go to a store that has a bug problem and carry an insect back in a bag. You might stay at a hotel with bedbugs that attach themselves to a suitcase. You could buy yard-sale furniture that has spiders or termites. Or your abode could just be a warm space for pests to stay in the cold months — each fall an estimated 21 million homes get invaded by pests worldwide, according to Jopestkil Kenya

“The animal is finding an opportunity to survive better through the structures that you have,” says Kennedy. “We call them ‘occasional pest invaders.’”

After going outside, inspect your belongings and body to make sure no critters sneak into your home; that way, you’ll be better equipped to prevent them from spreading to places like your bed or closet. If they do manage to gain access, the pest control regulation counsel recommends vacuuming, laying traps and using a swatter to quickly address the problem. Something as simple as a shower immediately after returning from a rural area can help wash off ticks and reduce the chances of contracting Lyme disease by 75 to 80 percent, says Kennedy.

  1. Act Fast on Bedbugs

Bedbugs are complex to understand how they spread and infest homes fast unnoticed. Bedbugs are among the toughest pests to evict. The first step is to look for signs: They leave behind black stains. “If you see those around the mattress or headboard, then you ought not stay in the room,” says Kennedy. “Always inspect and be monitoring your home.”

Bedbugs are most active at night, particularly between midnight and 5 a.m. They’re attracted to body odor, so be mindful of soiled clothes. Also, they do not survive the high heat of a clothes dryer.  When you get home after a trip, wash and dry your clothes immediately rather than have them sit in the hamper for a while.

Kennedy recommends keeping suitcases in the garage or attic, so bugs are kept away from the bedroom. If you don’t have that extra space, wrap a plastic garbage bag over your luggage.

  1. Toss the Food

There’s a common mistake that many people make when pests invade their pantry: They take all the food out, scrub down the area, and then put the food back. The problem? “It’s the food that’s infested,” says Kennedy. “Cleaning the shelf or around the edges won’t do anything because the food source is bad abundantly.”

Take these steps to prevent or safely resolve an infestation. Still in need of help? Then it might be time to consider reaching out to a pest control expert. “Partner with pest-control pros who clearly know what they’re doing,” says Kennedy. “Talk with them over your situation with the bugs. There are many solutions for each of the different pests from these experts.
