Facts About Pests At Home And How To Prevent It

feel uncomfortable if the house that is supposed to be comfortable and quiet to rest is disturbed by the presence of several pests such as cockroaches, rats, mosquitoes and ants.

Once not prevented, the pest of this house is increasingly rampant because of its easy and fast development. Here are some kinds of pests that often disturb the peace of our home:

Cockroaches

These animals breed in moist places and eat leftovers or objects found in water. The fibrous branches in the cockroach legs apparently carry thousands of bacteria that cause diarrhea, food poisoning and other types of diseases. In addition, cockroaches also have a smell that can stick long in an object that is attached to it like a home cupboard.

Cockroaches can be overcome using pesticides. But unfortunately cockroaches can smell the pesticide with a distance of five meters. In addition, it can be done by clearing the area filled with cockroaches and mops using hot water as well as detergent.

Rat

This type of pest home called mice in almost all houses has been visited. These animals are very fond of irregular places such as piles of paper, piles of cardboard, cabinets that have never been opened or places that are rare for activities. Mice are usually active at night when the house is asleep. Mice are annoying pests because they like to cut wires, kary, pipes and even valuable objects.

Mice can be overcome by feeding them by spreading some poison points and filling in the runway to the food box so that the mice take and bring the food into the nest and then spread rat poison to their friends.

Mosquito

The place that mosquitoes like is a dark and humid place and a place that does not have a lot of wind flow or a place where there is no air change. Mosquitoes are very interested in the temperature of the human body and are usually active at night. Mosquitoes breed in water containing organic materials such as sewer and sewerage. Mosquitoes can cause dangerous diseases such as malaria, dengue fever and elephantiasis.

How to eradicate mosquitoes can use mosquito repellent, or naturally can use mosquito nets at bedtime.

Termite

Termite foods are wood cellulose found in wood and paper. So it feels very uncomfortable if all the furniture in the house uses materials made of wood because unknowingly our furniture will be hollow and become ugly due to the act of termites.

Termites can be overcome by poisoning termites in charge of looking for food. This is so that we can entrust poison to our termite friends who are hiding. Besides that, you can use poisons that are applied by mixing them first with water and kerosene, then put them in the pores of the wood or the soil.

Those are some types of pests that fascinate the tranquility of our homes. I hope this method is useful.

Java chili plants have the characteristics of growing up, twisting or creeping, and having sticky roots. The roots are almost the same as the roots of betel or pepper plants. For the growth of this plant requires plants that are large enough to attach the roots.

  1. Look for a healthy parent tree that is more than a year old, fertile and straight stems but not too old.
