Posted on: 26 April 2017

Dealing with pests in the home is something that needs to be done. Nobody enjoys walking in the home and seeing a large rat scurrying under a table. It is also un-nerving to see a trail of ants leading outside your cupboard. It is important that the problem is taken care of as soon as possible or the problem can get worse. There are a few things that yo may want to do to keep your home as unappealing to pests as possible, but there are also ways to get rid of pests. This article is going to focus on the insect versions of pests. Here are a few things to do to keep insects out of your home, or if they do enter your home, how to kill them. 

Deep Clean

Something that is going to go a very long way in helping you keep the bugs out of your home is by keeping your home very clean. You will want to do your dishes in a timely manner so there is no stink, deep clean your pantry of any spilled items, vacuum on a regular basis, ensure garbage is properly disposed of. There are just many things that can be deep cleaned. Having a very clean hoe is one of the very best ways to make your home as unappealing as possible to the little creepy crawling pests that like to make your home their home. 

Diatomaceous Earth

A very simple way to start killing any insect with an exoskeleton is to sprinkle diatomaceous earth around the floorboards of your home. This is a powder created from diatoms, tiny silicious shelled algae, are usually about three microns in diameter. The sharp, tiny, and hard nature of diatoms can actually puncture the exoskeleton of an insect and cause them to dehydrate and die. The great thing about diatomaceous earth is that it is safe for pets and humans.
