7. Rotten fruits at home

You better eat your fruits before they become overripe. If you notice that the fruits will probably not be eaten, just get rid of them. However, don’t put that brown banana into the rubbish bin as it will be somehow impossible to prevent fruit flies from coming down for the “prey”.

These little nasty creatures come down chimneys or through small cracks and gaps. You will never prevent them from getting to the old banana or rotten apple. If you don’t have the means to dispose of rotten food right away, just put them into a plastic bag and tie it up as hard as you can.

Pests are awful for every home owner. Those creepy crawlies start creating colonies as soon as they appear in your home, and you aren’t likely going to get rid of them that easily.

8. Buying second-hand furniture

Sofas and armchairs are the most common habitual areas for nearly all known house pests. You will find them in most second-hand furniture being sold on many websites. If you decided to save up some money by purchasing a used sofa, call for cleaning services and have a special type of pesticide applied or sprayed on it.

Actually, it’s better to avoid purchasing any used furniture. And it’s not only about avoiding the big pests like ants and cockroaches. There are also billions of other microorganisms in used furniture, which can be detrimental to your health and possibly ruin the cleanness of your house.
