Our Pest Control Tips
How to keep roaches away from your home?
Reduce sources of food and water. Even cough drops by the bed are potential cockroach food
Remove dead leaves and rubbish heaps including compost piles from near your home
Store food in closely-tight containers hat cockroaches cannot chew through. Paper and cardboard boxes are not cockroach-proof.
How to keep ants at bay?
Store garbage cans in dry places (not under your kitchen's sink)
Empty garbage cans often and keep clean
Trim tree limbs so they don't touch or hang directly over your house
Consider replacing rotted or water-damaged wood
Inspect possible entry points like windows, door frames, and pipes or small openings.
Caulk or screen areas to seal entry.

How to stop rodents from eating your food?
Store food, especially grains and nuts, in rodent-proof glass or metal containers, not plastic
Refrigerate fresh fruit and vegetables

Pick up or bury fallen fruit and pet feces daily. Put away any foods that pets do not eat right away
