Every change in season brings in more troubles to most of the homeowners due to pest infestation. You will find various pests migrating towards houses when cooler temperatures approach. Among these pests are the rodents, cockroaches, termites and ants. They pose a threat to our property and our health by being agents of various illnesses. Rats and mice are very notorious for destroying various items in the house such as the clothes. Cockroaches are a serious menace in the kitchen and could be an agent for various health infections.
Cockroaches are the most despised of all the pests. This is mainly because they are associated with trash and other filthy items. They are particularly notorious, and you can easily find them in every corner of the living room more precisely in moist areas. They multiply very fast under ideal conditions. There are four main species of cockroaches common in most homes. These are the American cockroach, the German cockroach, brown-banded cockroach, and the oriental cockroach. They are known to destroy food items and other products. It is important that all the food items in the kitchen are locked up in the cabinets and closed in air tight containers to discourage their multiplication.
Termites are also known to devastate various homes causing immense losses of property. There are two types of termites known for their destructive nature; these are the subterranean and dry wood termites. Subterranean termites live in colonies underground. Termites depend on the moist soil for their survival. They mostly feed on dessert material such as drying grass and rotting wood material. They form the natural ecosystem in many desserts but can be a nuisance when they invade homes.
Drywood termites, on the other hand, destroy by infesting the woods that are not into contact with the earth. They are responsible for the destruction of wooden materials such as furniture and fences around homes.
Homeowners can follow simple guidelines to avoid pest infestation. Some of these measures include proper disposal of trash and installation of screens on door and windows entrance. Application of some natural materials such as cucumber peels, pepper powder and cloves can help in keeping these bugs at bay.
