It’s a job nobody wants to do, but regularly taking out the household rubbish bin quickly reduces the likelihood of insects and rodents setting up home in your trash bag. This includes ensuring that your compost bin doesn’t get too full, and that you stir it regularly, as the food scraps and moisture attract all kinds of pests, including stray cats.
Carpets can be a breeding ground for fleas and ticks. Keeping up with the household vacuuming and dusting means that you’ll reduce the potential for cobwebs and unwanted insects making a home.
The most important thing to keep in mind when dealing with pests is to solve issues as soon as possible. This includes discussing areas of concern with your landlord, or maintaining a cleaning system to make sure your home is getting regular maintenance. A clean house has less risk of pest infestation than those that have been neglected or are in a state of disarray.
