With the year coming to an end, it's a time for many to focus on creating that special list - that is, New Year’s Resolutions for 2022. While the majority may put 'healthier eating habits' or 'getting that promotion', here at K.C.S our top goal is to ensure the safety of your home and family from pests. This is why we've created a list of tips and tricks to help the next 365 days be as fantastic as ever.
1. Act fast on early signs of pests
The subtle signs of uninvited guests in your home may be easy to ignore, and whilst the occasional bug may make its way into the house without any issues, any potential warning signs of an infestation should be taken and dealt with seriously. The earlier you handle pests, the easier it will be in the long run.
2. Keep the house clean from food and water
The bare necessities are the number one attractant of any pest, so by keeping any left-out food and water to a minimum, you can assure that bugs will also be at a minimum in your home.
3. De-clutter your home
Something that may already be on your to-do list is to de-clutter and throw out/give away anything you no longer need or want. Whilst it can be a big job, the less clutter, especially cardboard, the less hiding and breeding spots for pests of all kinds. This simple act will deter many pests from calling your home, their home, and the few that do can be easily spotted and taken care of before a full-on infestation.
4. Have your home evaluated by a professional
As mentioned earlier, the signs of infestation can buzz past the eyes of many but, here at K.C.S, our trained staff notice the smallest of details and are extremely dedicated to providing a personalised strategy to protect your home. If you have any queries on your infestation status, be sure to contact our friendly team for advice.
5. Spray your home
Even if no signs of infestation are present, it is advised that you have your home sprayed in advance so that infestations are prevented, and no bugs set up camp in your home for the year.
Overall, 2022 is a great year waiting to happen, and K.C.S can ensure that pests are not apart of it.
