In your home, have you been catching critters out of the corner of your eyes lately? If you do, you are not alone. Do not panic. You may need little effort to get rid of these pests. You should be able to conduct all pest control measures yourself, without hiring an expensive professional exterminator. Look over this pest control advice for help.

Use an outside perimeter spray to prevent indoor insects. Spray areas around your house, like the windows and doors, steps and the foundation. As you spray, watch for cracks that can provide entry for pests. It can be very effective if you fill these spaces with caulk.

TIP! When you find holes that pests can get in through, stop it up with steel wool. While rats and mice can chew through them, the thin metal strands are too tough to chew.

Fleas are notorious for being hard to kill, but there are some steps you can take. The first thing you should do is vacuum thoroughly every day. Secondly, you must spray with a good flea spray. Keep in mind that your vacuum bag should be disposed of immediately upon finishing vacuuming.

Mint Leaves

Use mint to keep mice away from your home. Go around the whole foundation of your house and plant mint. You can keep mice away this way. Sprinkle mint leaves around affected areas if you have a mouse problem. This will repel mice in most cases, but always remember to sprinkle fresh mint leaves.

TIP! Keep your rugs and carpet vacuumed. This will get rid of anything that you don’t see that may be contributing to the problem.

It is important to have your home checked for pests on a regular basis. If your home’s structure goes underground at all, then subterranean termites might be eating part of your home that you rarely venture to. Check on the crawl spaces and basement.

You are sick and tired of having pests in your home; therefore, you are going to do something about them. Only you have what it takes to get rid of them. Identify the kind of pest you are dealing with, and pick a solution that is adapted to your problem for best results.
