You’re the man of the house and your house is your castle. Whether it is spacious or cramped, conventional, cluttered, or minimalist; it is your castle. So you don’t really want any invaders coming in, taking over and ruling the roost; especially those you can’t see and those you aren’t aware of. We are of course talking about pests. These critters do not have a right to your home; they don’t pay rent, or the mortgage or bills or anything. And what’s more, they can cause real harm to your home and to everyone in it.
If you have children, pests are known to cause outbursts of asthma and eczema, while others are effective in the game of spreading disease. Some just want to bug you; sting, bite, nip, whatever. They just annoy the heck out of you. However, by the time you come to realize that you are in fact sharing your lovely home with a pest, it may too late. As such, it is worth educating yourself on what the most common types of pests are and then learning how to effectively protect your home from invasion; raise the drawbridge so to speak.
Of course, where else to start than rats.
It doesn’t matter where in the world you live, there are probably a lot of rats. I bet there are even arctic rats, so if you are an inuit, listen up because rats are amazing at wiggling into your home. How is that? Well, rats have an unrivalled ability to gnaw through pretty much anything, including metal. Major problem alert because rats spread disease really well, and this is usually by contaminating your food. Thanks rats.
They’re in your beds (maybe).
Bed bugs are kind of like humans in the sense that they have a thing for warm places, typically warm places where you sleep because your skin and blood is their favourite food. Unfortunately, that means they don’t just live in your beds. They follow you around the house, hungry for more blood and skin – sofas and chairs and carpets – and they get to these places at super speed. That’s why it is worth you knowing about GreenTech Bug Heat, which will eliminate them fast and without chemicals that could cause your family harm.
Strong and small, it’s the ants.
Ants are some of the most incredible food finders in the animal-slash-insect kingdom. Couple that with their ability to slip into your house completely unnoticed and you’ll find yourself pulling your hair out. These guys can slip through the cracks in your foundations, it’s incredible. Of course, you may be thinking, well they don’t really do much harm because they themselves don’t carry diseases, think again. Ants cover an amazing amount of ground everyday, so who knows what bacteria is on their little bodies. So what tends to happen is, they dig holes around your home, make their way in through impossibly small gaps, head to your kitchen and then spread gross muck everywhere. So keep an eye out and regularly prowl your property for any signs.
