There are plenty of things in the home or business premises that can prevent pest infestations. If you have areas where water can accumulate, it’s important to get rid of this – it can provide a great breeding ground for insects. Similarly, make sure all toilets are clean from dirt and grime. Whilst the smell isn’t appealing to us, insects and rodents will be attracted.

There are plenty of things to be done outside. If you have large amounts of waste around the property that provide warm and damp conditions, you may have a family (or more) of rodents living there, so clean it out! If you have any shrubbery, plants or bushes, keep them well-maintained, or else they could be ideal hiding places for rodents and insects.
