Pest Protection Tips: Protect your home from common pests

Pests can chew your clothes, bite you, sleep in your bed, and eat your food. Also, not your cat or your in-laws. We mean pests – the kind that isn’t always easy to spot but can mean bad news for your home.

Steam ‘n’ Dry Pest Control Auckland Services experts state that it’s essential to get rid of home pests as soon as possible.

Bed Bugs

Bed bugs are more than just nighttime. Bed bugs are probably the most common Auckland household pest, and they like a warm mattress bed, upholstery and carpets as much as you do. They aren’t dangerous, and they don’t spread bacterial diseases, but their bites can be itchy.

How to eliminate bed bugs?

You will probably need a specialist such as Steam ‘n’ Dry Pest Control Auckland Service to make sure the bed bugs pest are entirely gone, but you could wash and dry your sheets at a high temperature first. Steam ‘n’ Dry Bed Bug Control Auckland Service truck has the most significant hot steam extraction truck-mounted cleaners. It uses hot 85°C steam at the point of contact when it kills bed bugs before a powerful truck-mounted vacuum with 26 HG of vacuum sucks them up if they’re in the mattress and bedsheets; consider throwing it out and getting a new one.

How do you stop bed bugs?

Just give your carpets, upholstery, mattress and bed linen regular inspections. Then, you can use a protective plastic cover on your mattress to remove hiding spots and avoid buying second-hand mattresses.

Ants

They’re not an issue when they’re outside, but you need to act when these ant invaders get into the home. Again, they aren’t dangerous, but ants are a real nuisance – and an ant trail indoors will be a significant turn-off for prospective buyers.

Indeed, vinegar mixed with water will act as a deterrent.

How do you protect ants from getting into your house?

To prevent an ant invasion, you should keep your house food stored tightly away, particularly things that are high in sugar, clean up spills fast, and seal holes and cracks in your doors and windows.

Fruit Flies

How do you stop fruit flies? 

Fruit flies enter the home as tiny eggs via fruit and vegetables, mainly if it hasn’t been commercially produced. Steam ‘n’ Dry Pest Control Auckland Services experts suggest washing fresh fruit and veggies properly. Also, make sure all your lovely produce is covered correctly.

Fleas

How do you get rid of fleas?

Make sure fleas don’t become reinfested. Then it’s time for hot steam deep clean. There are commercial flea-killing cleaning methods that you can use in your home, but fleas are pretty hard to detect, so it might be worth calling hot steam professional in to do it for you.

How do you prevent fleas?

Steam ‘n’ Dry Pest Control Auckland Services experts recommend checking your cat or dog pets regularly for fleas. You can also ask your vet for products for flea prevention.

Moths

How do you stop a moth infestation?

Moths prefer ‘unclean’ clothes, so wash clothes soon after you’ve worn them. They also like warm, undisturbed spaces. Also, keep your wardrobe aired if possible. Vacuuming the carpet regularly and hot steam cleaning can remove any eggs that might be lurking there. Furthermore, storing expensive clothes in specially-designed plastic coverings can keep moths from laying eggs on them.

Mice and Rats

How do you protest from mice and rats? 

Rats may enter the garden or house through damaged underground pipes and maintenance hole. Rats and mice can also come into the home through broken walls or small gaps in doors and windows, so Steam’ n’ Dry Pest Control Auckland Services experts suggest ensuring everything is in good repair.
