Seal any cracks or crevices throughout the residence
Pests naturally look for ways inside using gaps like these as hidden passageways. So fixing them up will help block their way in.
Dispense traps early
Traps are your best defence against untraceable critters once they’ve already made it into your home. Place bait to catch them soon after entering then dispose appropriately outside the premises.
Monitor spaces where moisture accumulates
This includes checking air conditioning units, bathrooms, window sills, and other moist places for signs of disrepair or water damage every few months which attracts pests over time.
Trim back vegetation along walls
Sometimes low-hanging branches will rest upon roofs brushing against walls giving easy access for insects to enter the premise undetected. So it’s important to cut back any overgrowth and keep gardens at least 70cm away from building exteriors.

Mice love to nest in places like these. So be sure to clean up any gathered bits of compost, leaves, or disorganised piles that can accumulate.
