Rodents πŸ€

Rodents such as mice and rats can cause a lot of damage to your home. They chew on wires and insulation, contaminate food and can carry diseases. To get rid of rodents, start by sealing all the entry points in your home, such as cracks in the walls or holes in the foundation. You can also use traps or baits, but make sure to place them in areas where children and pets can’t reach them.

Ants 🐜

Ants are attracted to food and water sources, so make sure to keep your kitchen clean and dry. You can use ant baits or spray insecticide around the perimeter of your home to keep them out. If you have an ant infestation, try to locate the source of the colony and place the bait near it. This will increase the chances of eliminating the entire colony.
