Welcome to my blog. As a quality pest control company owner, I am happy to share some basic knowledge with the local residents and business owners of Durban to ensure that you can take some easy steps to help keep pests at bay. In the infographic below, you’ll find some useful information on the different types of home invaders and some remedies that you can you to help prevent an infestation.
Whenever you have left over food, garbage or dirty areas of your property, you are opening yourself up for a potential pest invasion. Rats, mice and cockroaches are the most common and are attracted to food sources. They bread very quickly and the problem can soon get out of control. Setting traps and bait is the best and cheapest remedy but having pets in your home is also a good replant. For ants and termites, you can set bait by leaving untreated wood chippings in locations around your home – they will use this as a food source and will stop them eating into the wooden structure of your home. Fox urine and borax acid are useful over the counter remedies if the problem persists but if you are ever unsure, you should contact a professional immediately to ensure proper eradication which could save you a lot of money in the long run. Usually clean, well kept properties that eliminate traces of left over food and garbage are safe from an infestation in the first place. For further information, simply give us a call!
