Toronto is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. However, like most metropolitan cities pest problems are natural. In reality, there are many different types of pests that can infest Canadian homes every day. It is important to know what some of the more common pests are and the precautions that can be taken to prevent them from entering your home.
1. Ants. The pests are attracted to sweet and greasy types of food, such as peanut butter. To avoid them, keep attractive foods in sealed containers, and thoroughly clean food spills. Address any moisture issues around window and door frames, near the foundation and anywhere in the structure of your home to prevent wood-boring carpenter ants.
2. Bed bugs. They can be transferred from one place to the next, without being detected. To keep them from entering your home, abstain from bringing in second-hand furniture. If that is unavoidable, thoroughly examine second-hand furniture for bed bugs or have it professionally inspected using our K9 Bed Bug Scent Detector Dog Services. In addition, keep your home clean with minimal hiding spots. You can also use bed bug proof mattress covers to help.
3. Cockroaches. These infestations are not directly connected to having a dirty home. In order to be cautious and prevent an infestation, keep dark and damp areas in your home clean. Dispose of your garbage daily and wash dishes immediately after eating.
4. Mice. To keep your home mice-proof, seal all cracks in your foundation and eliminate any small openings around windows and doors.
