DIY Methods To Get Rid Of Unwanted Pests At Home

We’re giving you a few safe DIY methods that can help you get rid of those pesky pests.


Here is a fun fact, the Entomological Society of America reported that there are about 10 quintillion insects in the world. As a way to scale this huge number, we can say that there are more than 1 billion insects for every person in this world. They’re around us everywhere, but not all of them are looking to start a fight with us, and some are simply cruisin’ for a bruisin’.

When you’re fighting pests, it’s the sneaky ones that trouble you the most. It’s quite hard to feel safe and at ease when you don’t know how to stop pests from coming at your food, furniture, or even your body. According to Depestify, spending a lot of money to fight pests isn’t the only way. There are a lot of solutions and existing precautions that can do the job perfectly. We’ll be giving you a few safe DIY methods that can help you get rid of those pesky pests.

Clean Extra Well

Even though not all pests are deterred by a clean and fortified home, a lot of them don’t find it that hospitable. Cleaning up is considered a preventative method that’s usually done to keep pests away, but it can also be used to make the house uncomfortable for them as well. Garbage, leaky pipes, bad smells, and unsupervised food are all examples of what pests can find appealing in your home. Cracked walls and rotten wood are also a cause for alarm.

Diatomaceous Earth

Diatomaceous earth is an odd-sounding name for a bug deterrent. Those who aren’t into farming have probably never heard of it. Diatomaceous earth is a substance that’s usually in the form of a powder that is made of phytoplankton. That’s a completely safe substance to all mammals and is quite fatal to insects. It’s so safe that some farmers actually feed it to their animals to keep the pests away, others even eat it for its own health benefits. Sprinkle the powder all over the corners of your house and in infected areas, and be generous while doing the sprinkling. It should only take a few days for most pests to die, not to mention that pests will avoid your house from now on.

Staying Dry

Pests search for water as if they are searching for the holy grail. Wet areas and water puddles are considered one of the most encouraging things for a pest invasion. If you have a piping problem that has been going on for a while, you’d probably notice that there are a lot of unwanted pests in your home. Moisture can be a bit hard to spot without searching well, which is why you should do your best to find areas that are excessively moist and use a dehumidifier to reduce it.

Whether you have a phobia of bugs or if you just hate rats attacking your food supply, everyone can get on the hate for pests. The motivation or drive to kill pests is always there; you just need to find the right way to get rid of the pests safely.
