Vacuum the Bugs: ‘Kill as you spot them’ this might be your strategy to kill the unwanted bugs. But, do you know as you kill an insect you open the doors of your house for hundreds of new bugs?

Vacuum the insects instead and throw them out before new entrants arrive. Do empty the vacuum bag after your house rescue mission to prevent live bugs from crawling back.

Use Deterrents to Restrict Re-entry: Deterrents are a great way to prevent the re-entry of the bugs. You can make deterrents at home by adding citrus essential oil to your home cleaner. Plant mums outside your house and near windows. The smell of herbs like cloves, lavender, and sage irritates the bugs. You can place the herbs sachets near bug entrances.

Targeted Pesticides: If you have no other option than using a chemically treated formula to kill the bugs target the areas that are most likely to be the entry gate for the nasty bugs. Evaluate your house for any gap in windows, doors, water spout and drainage pipes for bug entry and chemically treat it.
