Nobody wants pests in their home. Not only can they be unhealthy for you and your family, but they often also cause damage to your home and possessions.

Many south-east Queensland residents have found citrus fruits to be an excellent deterrent for pests like spiders. Try keeping a bowl of citrus fruits like lemons and oranges in your kitchen to help keep out any unwanted pests.
Keep Your Home Clean From Food Scraps
One of the primary reasons that pests decide to invade your home is if there is a steady supply of food. This is commonly found in the form of food scraps. If you are leaving food scraps out around the house then you are sending out a “welcome” signal to all kinds of pests including cockroaches, ants, spiders and more. Keep your home clear of excess food scraps.
Seal Up Entry Places
It isn’t common for pests to enter your home by ringing the doorbell! More often than not pests will enter your home in a different way. This is usually through holes and gaps in your doors, walls and windows. Try sealing up these gaps to prevent pests from getting in.
