Mice are a major problem in homes both in urban and sub urban residents. They breed very fast and can take over your home within a short time. They like to operate from dirty places like sewers, manholes, dustbins and wherever left over foods can be found. They also pose a health risk because they transmit diseases such as salmonella, ray fungus; ring worm, dermatitis and rat bite fever among others. These are dangerous diseases but ones that you can eliminate by dealing a blow to the mice in your house. The most important thing to know before you even think of how to eliminate mice is to look for how they came into your house. You cannot succeed unless you solve that problem. Here are important things you can do to deal with the mice already in your house.

sugaeCockroaches are one of the most detested crawling insects in the home. They can quickly breed and within a short time your home suffers serious infestation. In case this happens, you get exposed to a number of challenges. One of them is the risk of diseases. Home is supposed to offer comfort and safety but never sorrow and pain. Cockroaches like dirty places and they can find such around the home in drainage pipes, dustbins and other places around the home and the neighborhood. After feeding on whatever they gather from these places, they come back to the house and may most likely come in contact with things on the kitchen. Cockroaches like being in the kitchen because they are likely to fin leftover food and other edibles lying on the tables and floor.
Rats are common pests found usually in dirty places. You will find them near the dumpster trucks and in garbage disposal areas. These are places where they find food and shelter and from where they spread to nearby areas. Their best target in any neighborhood is the home especially where food is left over on kitchen tops and on the floor at night. Rats have a way of finding unusual entry points to your house using routes you may never think about. Most of the times, they will use open drainage systems and big ventilation openings. Once they are in the house, the process of reproduction begins and you could have very many born out of just two or three in a short time. The biggest question in the minds of those whose houses have been infested with rats is how to get rid of them before they multiply so much. Rats also target restaurants and hotels due to the sometimes low hygienic standards observed there.
Bed bugs are such a health hazard in the home due to their effect on health and general home comfort. They inhabit the most desired places in the home such as the bedroom, lounge and any other place where humans love to take rest. The desire to completely eliminate them from a home is always there and people keep trying different methods with varied success. One of the most difficult things about dealing with bed bugs is where they hide. They like hiding in such places like in cracks, curtain and bedding hemming among other hideouts. This means you can hardly see them if and when you want to do something about them. It makes it hard to spray pesticides and other chemicals that are available in the stores. The bugs have nowadays developed some resistance to chemical sprays such that even after spraying for several times, you might still have a good number of them remaining and reproducing more. This causes frustration and therefore a need to explore more effective control measures.(more...)
