There is nothing more alluring to pests than an unorganized and untidy house. Avoiding them and keeping them away only requires you to be more keen to your house's cleanliness. The little details to your home should never go unchecked. Your food should always be stored properly. Dishes should never go unwashed. If you have pets, their food should never be left out. Your garbage lids should always be secured and sealed.

3. Love your garden as you love the rest of your home

If your home consists of a garden, then you must take care of your garden as much as you take care of the rest of your home. An untidy garden could be a haven to hundreds of different pests. Pests are very much attracted to untrimmed grass. To avoid them, always keep your lawn mowed and make it a point to always trim your plants.

4. Seal your home

Broken walls, unsealed screens, and leaking pipes are some very good gateways for pests. If you don't have enough time to deal with these things, then it's high time you hire professionals to do it for you. Sealing gaps and cracks around broken pipes, walls, roofs, and gutters is essential to getting rid of pests from your home.

5. Change your lighting

Your lighting can also have a huge impact in pest control. It is said that bugs are much less attracted to pink, orange, or yellow lighting. If you can't seem to get rid of pests in your home, then you might want to try changing your lighting. Not only does it attract less pests, but it also gives you a chance of giving a new look for your home.

6. Remain vigilant

A pest-free home requires you as the home-owner to be alert to every detail of your house- be it major or minor. Finally getting rid of pests in your home is one thing, but keeping it that way requires constant vigilance. Always make it a point to tidy up your house every once in while. If you'll be consistent in keeping things around your home clean and organized, surely, crawling critters won't disturb your wonderful home anymore.
