I am a clean freak and do everything that I can to make sure that my home looks and smells clean. I don't mind a little bit of clutter - but when the room is dirty and full of dust I have to clean it right away. I have a family to look after and this means making sure that there is nothing around the home that will attract bugs.
Too often people will leave food or dirty dishes over night not thinking about how this will attract ants and cockroaches. Unfortunately there are times when no amount of cleaning will keep them away. I hate bugs with a passion and am so frustrated when every time I clean I still see one scampering around my house.
I had finally had enough when ants decided to take over my pantry for no apparent cause. I called the pest control company immediately after that and told them that they needed to come spray the inside of my home and my yard. That is when I learned that sometimes there is no other alternative for you.
The best time to call these companies is when you are in my position and cleaning is not the problem. For some it could be the weather that is driving them in. If you have an ant problem then it could be because your yard has many ant piles that are close to the home. They are also able to come in through holes in the walls.
When you use a pest control company they will be able to spray every nook and cranny of your home to make sure that every entrance for them will prove fatal. Have them come out once a month and your pest problem will disappear.
