Pests can be controlled from visiting your areas by taking away their sources of survival. Examples are having a proper waste management and drainage system check, keep your food and garbage closed. Rats, flies and cockroaches breed in garbage so be diligent in your garbage disposal.
Electronic and ultra sound devices are developed today to use for home pest control. It must be understood though that these devices only drive away pests from your homes, not kill them. In places like restaurants, hotels and food stalls, these devices are commonly used since these areas are attractive to pests.
It is very important to control pests since they can transmit to humans diseases like rat fever, hantavirus pulmonary syndrome, bird flu, swine flu, murine typhus, leptospirosis, and many others.
There are several methods to keep away these pests. Remove food debris, crumbs and grease in cracks and crevices. Get rid of their water sources in areas like moisture under the sinks, shower or bath areas. Get rid of storage areas in your house like piles of unused cartons, boxes, woods, etc. Trimming plants too close to your houses like branches, since these are used as travel entry of pests to your houses.

Understanding and knowing what your pest control provider is doing to control pests in your place is important. Ask questions, check their licenses, and see how they are treating your property and if these are effective.
