Mosquitoes are one of the most notorious pests known to society. They carry infections that spread diseases like:

- - Zika Virus
- - Chikungunya
To combat such pests and situations, availing mosquito pest control services come to the rescue. Here are top 10 pest control tips and tricks to help you keep your house clean and disease free.
- Keep the kitchen clean
Pests thrive in a dirty and damp atmosphere. To avoid infestations, keep the kitchen counters, drawers, racks and stove-tops clean. Wiping them on a regular basis with a disinfectant solution, keeping food enclosed in a container, this will keep the insects and pests away from your kitchen space.
- Keep the bathrooms clean
When a new building and home is made, usually pest control services for bathrooms are not included. Keeping the bathrooms clean by cleaning them regularly, using a toilet cleaner, cleaning the pot every alternate day, washing the sink at least once a week properly etc. These small measures will keep the bathroom hygienic and pest free.
- No standing water
Pests like mosquitoes breed in stagnant water. Clean the area around your house and make sure that you get the drains running outside your house cleaned as stagnant dirty water in the drains can cause water-borne diseases like dengue and malaria. To avoid such situations, we'd highly suggest getting mosquito pest control services.
- Don't keep fruits and vegetables out for long
Fruits and vegetables attract mosquitoes, flies and other insects. Avoid keeping the cut and ripe fruits and vegetables on the table top for long periods of time. While some pests like fruit flies are harmless, the overripe, rotting fruits can also attract bigger pests like house flies, ants and cockroaches which are difficult to get rid of.
- Dispose the garbage regularly
Garbage disposal is the key. Ideally, garbage should be disposed of every single day. Avoid keeping the dustbin in the kitchen as it attracts insects and flies and infests the food as well which can create health issues for the consumers.
- Garden maintenance
Filling the holes and pits in the garden where water can accumulate should be cleaned regularly. If you have a water fountain or pond in the garden, make sure to clean that as well. Maintain your garden, keep it neat and clean to avoid unwanted pests like mosquitoes, rats and ants.
- Keep items of external use outside
If you have a kitchen garden or a lawn, it’s likely you may have furniture, shoes, buckets and other objects specifically meant for gardening purposes. Keep these objects outdoors and try not to use them for indoor purposes before cleaning them thoroughly. Keep them secured in a garage or any other outdoor area and ask your kids not to bring them indoors.
- Fix nets on windows
Fix nets on your windows to prevent pests such as mosquitoes, flies, spiders and large cockroaches from coming in. These nets help with the ventilation but also prevents pests from entering your space. Also, if there are any broken window panes or glasses, repair them at the earliest to prevent insects from entering.
- Dispose unneeded things
An important pest control tip is to declutter your house. If you have unused boxes lying around the house that have dust gathered or toys that have been outgrown by children- it is time to get rid of them. If you are finding it difficult to decide whether to throw something or not, ask yourself this: Will I use this item in the next three months? If the answer is no, then it’s time to throw it out!
- Contact professional pest control services
While the above mentioned measures can help reduce the number of pest infestations in your house, getting a pest control treatment or mosquito pest control services in your space can really eradicate the problem to a certain extent. Professionals are well trained and use verified chemicals and measures to ensure the safety of you and your family.
