Pest infestation is a nightmare, be it at your home or office in UAE. The hot climate of our country drives these pests inside our homes. It is a significant health concern as pests carry many dangerous diseases. The most common pests we see are flies, cockroaches, mosquitoes, and bed bugs. In the case of severe infestations, we strongly suggest you get help from the best pest control UAE companies. Severe infestations need expert help and taking care of it yourself may seriously go wrong as well. Anyway, let’s take a look at the effortless steps you can follow to get rid of these common pests.
Getting Rid of the Flies
Flies are harmless beings, or are they not? Flies induce discomfort when they hover through our food and other items. However, apart from the distress, flies are active carriers of diarrhea, typhoid, cholera, and dysentery. These harmless species can soil our food and spread severe medical conditions that are very harmful to humans.
One of the easiest methods to trap the house flies is with sweet bait. Flies love sweet. So, cut a bottle in one third from the neck of a plastic bottle. Then, fill any sweet mixture, like sweetwater, on the larger section of the bottle, which will act as the bait. Now, put the cone-like part of the bottle upside down on the larger section. This way, it will be easier for the flies to fly in but not to fly out of it once they are lured in.
Another effective remedy to get rid of the flies are to plant and maintain garden plants like basil, bay leaf, lavender, and mint. These plants are efficient in repelling the flies outside your house.
How to Dump the Cockroaches?
Praised for their ability to withstand radioactive radiations, and yet, they are a nuisance in our daily life. These nocturnal insects are in constant search of food, and they do find ours great. So, in effect, they are just another disease carriers we have to get rid of.
Cleaning is a Bliss
I know; cleaning is hard. But, it is worth practicing to keep the cockroaches, and hence the diseases, away. Keeping your home is the easiest way to avoid roaches. If there is no accessible food, why would they bother coming? Keep your food always closed, clear out the garbage daily, and always clean your spills.
You can also find cockroach traps at your local store. Set them up around the house, and it will take around two weeks to see results. However, it is an effective way to control them in the initial stages.
Getting rid of cockroaches is almost effortless with this class of chemicals. They are poisonous and attack the roaches as you spray them on them. The good practice is to spray the liquid on the cracks and crevices of your place, where cockroaches may be hiding. However, mopping the floor with the solution is also appropriate.
Mosquitoes, Get Away From Them!
These little flying organisms are bloodsuckers. But, you know that already. You also understand how they can transmit deadly viruses into our body, Zika being the latest one. Therefore, it is vital to keep the mosquitoes away to live safe and happy.
No Stagnant Water
It is something we learned in school; mosquitoes need stagnant water to thrive. If there is no standing water near you, there are meager chances of infestation. Always check out for it and also keep your home and the surroundings clean.
You will be able to find mosquito repellent creams at your local medical stores. They are handy against mosquito bites. Also, there are homemade remedies like advocating garlic, camphor, and other essential oils to dodge their attack.
You can block the entry points with thin nets that usually cover your windows and doors. This method is very effective in stopping the mosquitoes from entering the house and thus ensuring safety.
Believe it or not, an oscillating fan can help you in fighting mosquitoes. Mosquitoes cannot stand their wind speed and steer away from you. This way, you can get rid of them temporarily.
However, on a serious note, we strongly recommend you to get expert help or at least their opinion to analyze the situation at your place. It can help you fight the infestation effectively as mosquitoes are lethal to us.
Bed Bugs = Nightmares
Unlike other pests discussed above, bed bugs cannot do much physical harm, but they compensate for it in mental health. If you have been seeing rashes on your hands and neck right in the morning or not able to sleep at night, bed bugs are the reason.
Alcohol and Essential Oils
Both substances are effective in killing bed bugs, but they are not used as a mixture. However, these remedies cannot attack bed bugs in all life stages. So, there are chances that you will not see any effect even after practicing it.
You can find a lot of chemicals, like pyrethrins, pyrethroids, & desiccants, in your local store to clean your bed, upholstery, or mattresses. However, these are toxic chemicals, and hence we ask you to follow the precautions before you use them.
Irrespective of what remedy you follow, there is a high chance of an infestation in all homes. Therefore, we strongly recommend an expert inspection of your place to ensure your safety. If there is an infestation, the trained professionals will clear out your infested house.
