  1. Keep all the food materials well sealed.
  2. If there is any spill of food, immediately take a step to clean the place.
  3. If you find ants in food materials like sugar or any cereals, keep the bowl in direct sun. This is one of the natural methods to eliminate ants.
  4. Apart from the above natural methods, there is a pesticide method to kill or get rid of ants. There are many chemicals available in the market, like, ant powder, ant chalk, and the list goes on. Whatever pesticide we use, you need to ensure that you are following the proper guidelines to use and dispose of the chemical.

Controlling Bed Bugs

  1. These small but annoying creatures are found almost in our couches and beds where the human contacts are more. So, to get rid of these little beasts, you need to clean up the sofas and beds thoroughly, layer by layer. No space should be left without cleaning.You can use a magnifying glass for assistance, and sometimes, you can use your credit card to whip out the insect from its hiding places. This is the best method of ‘do it yourself’.
  2. When the numbers are more, then it is challenging for you to handle the situation alone. Without any choice, you need to bring the professionals into action. They have several methods like steaming, vacuuming, applying pesticide mildly to get rid of bed bugs permanently.

Variety of Spiders

  2. A natural method of getting rid of spiders are using the cut onions in the places where there are spiders. Spiders do not like the smell of onion. They will never revisit the place.

Rodents and Food Contamination

  1. Rodents, rats, and mice often have the same behavior. They come into your house through any gap like plumbing gaps, open sealings, etc. If left unnoticed, they will severely contaminate the food. So, one of the ‘do it yourself’ way is to use rat poison or traps to get rid of the pests.
