5 Corners of your home that pests love!

The monsoon season has begun, and no one can disagree that it is a joyous season for pests, bugs, rodents, and other similar critters. Pests pose a severe threat to your and your family's health by staying in your home's corners. Pest troubles are sure to take a toll on a normal life in metro areas like Bangalore, Mumbai, and Chennai since people rarely have time to constantly check these critters in the corners of their homes. As a result, cockroaches, bed bugs, and termite management are also necessary!

Rains offer comfort after the hot, humid, and agonizing weather, but they also bring a bag full of difficulties, namely pests! Even if you've successfully eliminated these pests from your home's corners, with monsoon on the way, these bugs and mites will undoubtedly return. They not only cause damage to your home, personal possessions, and furnishings, but they also steal your peace. So, don't allow the rain to transform your beautiful home into a breeding ground for bugs, roaches, and rats. Let the rainy weather, not damper your joy!

Once these pests have invaded your house, they manage to contaminate every nook and cranny, putting your health at risk. As a result, understanding which areas of your home these pests might infiltrate is the first step toward winning the battle against them.

  1. The kitchen is one of the busiest parts of the house, and it's almost like saying, "Come, feast on the food, insects!" Pests and rodents cannot eat the food you prepared for your family because of appropriate sanitation and control. Here are some ways to prevent a pest invasion in your house-

    • Keep your cabinets clean of any crumbs and spillage
    • Check drainage and pipes for any leakage and repair if needed
    • Store food in airtight jars
    • Throw away trash from the bin daily

  2. The basement of your home is the second most likely site for rats and roaches, and can easily become a home for these pests. They are happiest when they can hide behind heaters, furnaces, dryers, and other dark locations where they may easily avoid you. Here are some tips to prevent a pest infestation in your basement.
    • Keep the regions well-lit since pests will not hide where there is light.
    • Keep all sorts of dirt out of the basement.
    • Do not allow the area to become wet.
    • Fix any leaks or leaky appliances to avoid musty odors and dampness that might attract bugs and rats.

  3. Bed bugs discover food and refuge in your living rooms and bedrooms. These nooks and crannies in your home provide everything bugs need, from tempting food that you would have eaten to comforts like a warm bed or a corner to infest. Here are some suggestions for avoiding a bug infestation in your living rooms and bedroom-
    • Wipe off all surfaces to avoid dust and cobweb growth.
    • Make sure that there are no food crumbs on the floor.
    • Keep furniture away from walls by closing all doors and windows.
    • Check beds, mattresses, pillows, and cushions on a regular basis for any signs of bed bugs.
    • Keep an eye out for any termite activity.

  4. Attics and garages, like basements, are areas where you keep items you rarely use. As a result, they become one of the favorite haunts of pests and insects. Most of the time, minor gaps go overlooked, allowing pests to enter. Even those cardboard boxes attract bugs, who like feasting on them! Here are some ideas on how to avoid a bug outbreak-
    • To keep spiders at bay, remove all cobwebs.
    • Instead of cardboard boxes, store items in plastic boxes.
    • Inspect stored things for termite damage on a regular basis.
    • Make sure the wire mesh is thoroughly covered.
    • Allow no moisture to enter the garage.
    • Make certain that any undesired openings are closed.

  5. The bathroom, after all, is where you go to freshen up. What if you discover it has been infested by pests? Bathrooms attract a lot of bugs due to soap scum, mildew, and dampness. You can keep it pest-free by keeping it dry and clean. Here are some tips for averting a bug invasion-
    • Regularly cleaning the bathroom ensures optimum sanitation.
    • Check for stains and odors, as they attract a lot of bugs and insects.
    • Make sure the restroom is completely dry.
    • Seal all crevices and leaks that allow bugs to enter.
