Here are some of the most affordable (and even free) ways to protect your home from pests:

  • Rubber Door Stopper:

Vermin like mice have remarkably flexible bodies. If you think that little gap between the door and floor is too small for them to fit their bodies in, think again. Rubber door stoppers are the most effective way to prevent vermin from entering your home through any door.

  • Study your Garden:

Head outside and see if there are any plants or vegetation that will give pests easy access to your home. A branch or a hanging plant might be too close to a gutter. Remember that pests are pretty smart and may use these plants as a bridgeway to any entrance to your home.

  • Say Goodbye to Your Vegetable Garden:

If it’s attached to a wall, that is. While vertical gardens are increasingly popular especially in homes with small land plots, it isn’t such a good idea to have so close to your home. Watering it daily will make the wall prone to attract termites as they love moisture. Another reason why vertical gardens aren’t advisable is because they tend to cover weep holes in the wall. Weep holes give termites access to the interior workings of your home which will cause a lot of damage. If you want to maintain a vegetable or vertical garden, keep it away from your house.

What is Eco-Friendly Pest Control?

You might have heard a company or two promoting their services as “eco friendly” when in reality it is another way of saying that pest control isn’t what it used to be.

Gone are the days of pesticides that are extremely poisonous and have strong odors. A reputable pest control company such as Pest-Ex Pest Control in Gold Coast doesn’t use organophosphate chemicals any longer. Chemicals used to control pests practically have no smell and are safe to use in places such as restaurants, aged-care facilities, and childcare centers. It is so mild that it is even less toxic than table salt!

Pest Control Safety Tips

Most homeowners have some sort of arsenal of products that they use to protect themselves from pests. It can be an insect repellent or spray, rat baits, or cockroach baits. Regardless of what you may have, always remember to keep them away from small children and pets. These are dangerous and hazardous materials that shouldn’t be played with.

When you hire a pest control company, it is advisable to leave your property while they do their job. While it may be unnecessary, it will help the treatment process go by faster.

DIY Pest Control: Yes or No?

There are many products in the market that can easily be bought to help control pests at home. One product that comes to mind are rat baits. Rat baits are chemicals that the rodent eats which is intended to kill them. The problem of such a product is an effect called “second kill”.

The chemicals in rat baits aren’t very strong. In fact, it will take a week before it will kill the rodent. During this time the rat will be dazed and confused, making it easy prey for small animals like dogs or cats. Because the rat has poison in its body, the cat or dog will also be affected by the chemicals. They may even die from it too.

Another product that could cause harm are wall-mounted pest control gadgets that are supposed to spray insecticide to the air periodically. Spraying chemicals to the same air that you, your family, and your pets breathe is always risky.

Save Money

When the damage has been done to your home, you don’t realize the extent of it until you call the professionals. When it has been properly treated, the best thing to do is maintain it so you won’t have to spend so much money again next time.

Having a pest control company regularly checks your home and property for any pests and termites will save you the headache of any unnecessary spending in the future. It is also best to catch a problem early on so you won’t have to worry about extra expenses for repairs.

Common Pests that you Must Be Knowing


These pests are known to be found in your closets and wardrobe as they tend to enjoy devouring clothes.

While mothballs can deter them, they don’t really get rid of silverfish. They usually breed in the rooftops so during a treatment a dusting machine is used to penetrate through the roof and wall cavity.


Wasps are quite tricky to get rid of because they can only be treated as they are seen. We know wasps to be a flying nuisance but there are two types of wasps that need to be controlled or eliminated: the mud builders and nest builders which you can find under your home’s eaves.

A pest control company would spray the affected area and make sure that the home is sealed to prevent any from entering. Once all of the wasps have been eliminated, the next can be removed. There is a product called “Wasp Freeze” that a homeowner can use themselves but knowing how wasps can easily sting, it might be best to simply contact the professionals.


Due to environmental laws, bees can’t be killed off. They are now a protected species. Years ago pest control companies would apply or spray chemicals on the hive and wait for the bees to die. Nowadays, a beekeeper needs to transport the bees using a box that contains a queen bee. Bees are naturally attracted to the queen bee and will enter the box. The beekeeper can now take the hive away from your home.
