The idea of ??sharing your home with one of the many insects that can be found in your surrounding is far from being pleasant. Not only can the spread of diseases be attributed to these "little animals" and other "temporary intruders", they can also damage your property, not to mention the distress they cause in those suffering from her petophobia (people who are afraid of crawling animals).

How to keep these "little animals" out of the house?

It is possible to prevent these intruders from entering homes by clogging all entry points. The most common entry points are little gabs under the doors or around pipes in contact with the outside. It is also important to plug all slots where these insects can hide - most of them, such as the earwig or carpet beetle, are nocturnal and hide during the day in hollows and cracks in the walls, around skirting boards or behind electrical outlets.

Regularly vacuum carpets and rugs to remove eggs of carpet beetles and use carpet insecticide shampoos at regular intervals.

The most common reason for insects entering the house is foraging for food and water, so make sure none are available by taking the following steps:

  • Store food in closed containers or plastic bags.
  • Clean up food and spills immediately.
  • Clean food debris below refrigerators or stoves.
  • Clean dishes and cutlery immediately.
  • Remove food and water from animals and litter boxes.
  • Place garbage and composting waste in closed garbage cans.
  • Take care with soiled diapers or dirty clothes.
  • Do not leave liquids in the sink or buckets overnight.
  • Silverfish need a moist but warm atmosphere to live, so make sure the parts are dry and well ventilated.

How to get rid of "little beasts"

Without treatment, these intruders can quickly multiply and colonize adjoining properties.

In case of beetle infestation of carpets, you are advised to do the following:

  • Carefully vacuum all the carpets
  • Use an insecticidal shampoo
  • Dry-clean all clothing, curtains or other management equipment that is infested or damaged by the carpet beetle larvae.

Control that can be done by yourself

Many products available on the market can effectively combat a variety of insects and intruders. It is important to follow the instructions for safe and effective use.

However, it can be difficult to reach all the nooks, cracks and crevices used by some insects to hide, especially with household products. An established infestation problem will often require the use of professional pest control to prevent the problem from reoccurring.

Pest Control by Professionals

Most small animals or other intruders are more harmful in the garden than in the house. However, this is not always the case and some of these vermin are sometimes extremely difficult to control. Home products can solve an immediate problem, but treatment by a qualified pest control technician is often necessary in the long term against certain pests. In case of a real infestation, it is better to seek the assistance of a pest agent or company.
