Moving into a new home is stressful enough as it is. But the thought of dealing with one or a hundred creepy crawlies that could have already moved in makes it even worse. It is always a good idea to take extra care to prevent pests from crawling in, rather than having to deal with it later. To prevent the scenario of a rat or cockroach running around your kitchen from happening, here are a few things you can do for a pest-free home and make your move less stressful:
Start the Day with Coffee:
Having a warm cup of coffee on the first day after moving into your new home might sound like heaven, but there’s an unexpected problem that coffee can actually help to take care of. There are certain kinds of smells that most common pests are repulsed by, and the smell of coffee is one of them. Scattering coffee grounds around your house, particularly in areas in which pests are likely to come peeping in, can help keep them away to a certain extent. This trick works especially well in keeping critters away. This can get you one step closer to a pest-free home.
Spend Some Time with Your Furniture:
When it comes to moving furniture into your home, the worst thing that can happen is unknowingly letting a few bed bugs move in with you. Bed bugs can multiply alarmingly fast, and they can spread all over your furniture in a matter of days. This problem usually happens when moving second-hand furniture into a new home. To make sure that your furniture does not have bed bugs, it is important to do a thorough cleaning of mattresses, rugs and so on. You can also reupholster them if possible to be absolutely sure. As for your bed linens and pillowcases, it is a good idea to wash them with hot water too. Things like this can make pest control easier.
Rely on the Onion:
Using onions to repel pests might seem a rather strange idea, but it actually works. This is especially useful while trying to repel spiders, and good home pest control is necessary to get rid of them. While moving into a new home, it is always likely that there will a few spiders hiding in dark corners. To sleep better on your first night in your new home, try this simple trick with an onion. Just slice up some onions and place it in a bowl of water. Keep this in areas where spiders are likely to be, and it will help to keep them repelled and away from your home.
Use Essential Oil Extracts:
Most common pests are repelled by several types of essential oils. So, it is a good idea to stock up on essential oils before moving in. However, an even better is to stock up on naturally-derived pesticides that have essential oils in them. MDXConcepts has a range of eco-friendly pesticides that contains essential oils that pests are repelled by. Using their home pest sprays in your new home will help you be completely sure of living in a pest-free home from your very first day there.
