Pest Control

Nobody likes pests. And if you have recently found that pests such as ants, spiders, and cockroaches are plaguing your home, no doubt you want to be rid of them! In this article, Gold Coast Pest Control shares some tips with you on how to evict these unwanted creatures living in your house.

1. Ants

Are ants eating you out of house and home? Does it seem like no matter which room you enter, you’re surrounded by these tiny pests? The good news is, you don’t have to use harmful chemicals and pesticides to be rid of the ants on your property. The next time you decide to evict your army of invaders, try using cayenne pepper near the source of where the ants are coming from.

If the use of cayenne pepper doesn’t appeal to you, rest assured that you have other options. A solution made from lemon and water, vinegar, and even dish soap where you commonly see these pests is effective at warding them off. And the type of ant (black ants, fire ants, sugar ants, and carpenter ants) doesn’t matter when it comes using these methods to clear your home. These natural ways to get rid of ants are especially good for those who live in a home with kids and animals.

2. Spiders

It’s a rare person who enjoys seeing a spider outside, much less inside the home. If you have an infestation of spiders, especially ones like black widow and brown recluse spiders, no doubt you are worried about the danger these creatures present. Just like with ants, you can use safe and natural repellents for spiders that will get your point across in no time. It’s worth nothing that keeping your house as clean as possible is a good way to prevent these pests to begin with.

So what can you do to get rid of spiders? Use peppermint oil! Spiders aren’t a huge fan of this oil, and therefore sprinkling it before windows and doors is a good way to get them thinking twice before entering your home. And if you enjoy the smell of peppermint, your home will smell fantastic as well. Another thing that has been said to deter spiders are chestnuts.

Vacuum any spiderwebs you see around the home as well, and do the same with any spiders in sight. Do this only if you cannot bring the spider in question outside such as with a dangerous spider like the brown recluse. If you are not wanting to deal with the spiders yourself, call a professional exterminator to be rid of these pests.

3. Cockroaches

Roaches are disgusting, and it’s no wonder you want them gone if you have an infestation in your home. To be rid of them, start by cleaning your house thoroughly. Denying them food is not enough. You want to also deny them water. Without a water source, cockroaches will die within a week. You can also use a bait that will kill these creatures, and when they bring it back to the nest, the problem will be solved in no time.

If you have pests, rest assured you can be rid of ants, spiders, and cockroaches in no time! Using the methods above, you’ll soon be enjoying a pest-free home. Good luck!
