Insects are always looking for a way to survive and if your home offers a way in, they will enter. Of course, there is a wide variety of insects and some are parasites and can come inside your home through a member of the family, a pet or even you. If a couple of insects get inside your home, for example, and find pleasing conditions, they will begin to reproduce, their number will grow and before you know it, you will end up with an infestation. Tweakers and junkies, for instance, can take over your place and destroy everything slowly but in an impressively short timeframe. They are known for drooling and vomiting on everything and then taking things apart (and forgetting to put them back). In short, pests will leave a mess wherever they go.
Usually, there’s a number of things you can do to prevent your house from being infested with pests and insects. Adding screens on all your windows or doors, fixing cracks and holes in your house and keeping it clean and neat can help keep insects away. However, according to some experts, no matter how much you might “protect” your house, it’ll never be pest-free –they’ll always find a way or another to come into your house.
In addition, when a house is infested with pests, I know getting rid of them is much easier and quicker than cleaning up after them. So, if you are wondering how to get rid of that horrible odor and sanitize your home, then you’ve come to the right place.
Cleaning up Roach Droppings
Indirectly, cockroaches can harm humans because of the way they move freely from garbage and filth to our food, cooking surfaces and kitchen utensils, spreading bacteria or other pathogens that can make us sick. And, of course, we can’t ignore the damage they can do by chewing books, papers and other materials.
This is why it is important to get rid of roaches. The problem, however, is that they just won’t die. Ever tried to step on a cockroach and crush it? You literally have to do the Mexican hat dance on its spine for ten minutes just to get the damn thing to stop twitching and sometimes, I don’t know how but the bastard would just hobble away.
And, even when you get rid of them, they leave behind that foul-smelling dropping which is not only hazardous to humans, but it also contains pheromones – substances that are secreted to signal other roaches to gather in the same place. This means that even if you were able to get rid of a roach (after doing the flamenco), if you don’t clean up the droppings, more will come to your house.
So, here are some tips for cleaning up roach droppings:
- You start by using a vacuum to remove the roach poop from the affected area.
- Then, you wash the area thoroughly, either with soap and water or with baking soda.
- An alternative includes cleaning up with a disinfectant cleaner.
Cleaning up Spider Droppings
Just because there are tons of harmless spiders in the world doesn’t mean that you have to allow them to live in your house.
I have absolutely no problem in getting rid of these silently creepy, utterly disturbing and wall-crawling creatures. In fact, I even have the perfect solution to get rid of their droppings.
Do you know those tiny, whitish and grayish spots that can be found on floors, furniture and in different corners of the house? Well, they are called spider “poop” and if you want to get rid of it, I suggest using a bleach and water solution. And, for more information about getting rid of spider droppings, click here.
