Attic

During most of the seasons many insects and animals find the attic to be a place of shelter.

Roof

A roof with certain damages or cracks will allow bugs and insects to crawl into your home quite easily. For pest control Melton you should be certain that your roof is well repaired without any damages. If there are any gaps or cracks, fill them. Also check the drain pipes for standing water or any waste. Keep them clean at all times. This will help prevent pests from reproducing.

Garden and garage

Two most common places where insects and animals find great shelters to settle in. Through these places they can have easy access to your home. If your garden and garage are not kept well maintained and tidy, it will be infested by pests quite easily and their next step will be invading your home during the cold season. For a pest-free zone in the garden keep the garbage cans and bags well closed, don’t leave it open, this will create a pest breeding zone. In addition, keep the bushes, shrubs and branches trimmed and away from the house. Check your garden regularly for standing water. Don’t leave containers, coconut shells and buckets out in the open. The rain water collected in these can create mosquitoes. As for the garage, make sure it is damage free. Storing items in plastic and metal containers will help protect them. During the warm season keep it damp-free and during the cold seasons covering the air vents with meshes will prevent the pests from entering inside.

Insects and animals can be a real menace. They can affect your health and hygiene. Therefore, make sure your house is kept pest-free by checking it regularly. In severe cases, don’t hesitate to seek professional help
