How to Keep Your Home Pest-Free While You’re Away

Since it was a long weekend, most of you probably went out of town, or maybe had a short staycation to enjoy a few quiet days away from home.

And when you are preparing for a trip, most of us become too  focused on the preparations  for the trip that we sometimes forget about the things we leave behind.

So once you come back from that short break, we come home to the  horror that our Home isn’t as Sweet as we left it.

No, I’m not just talking about security of forgetting to lock the doors and getting robbed. But something that’s more of an inside job–that’s been months or even years in the making.

I am referring to  those annoying pest infestation–ants, cockroaches, insects to those pesky damaging rats that ruin our property.

If you don’t want ants, cockroaches, rats, and mice to be partying in your kitchen or dining room, be sure to wash all dishes. Don’t leave anything dirty in your sink. Put leftover food in sealed containers or store inside the refrigerator. Dispose of all garbage and wash the trash cans.

Because food bits – no matter how small – will attract all sorts of guests, the type that you never invite.

If you have containers with water, cover them or just eliminate entirely. Standing water can be breeding ground for insects. Let’s not give their population a chance to grow.

So before you go on that next trip you might want to add some items on your shopping list and ask the sales assistants where  the Pest Off! shelf is located.

Known for its superior quality products with value-for-money proposition, Pest-Off it is the only brand in supermarkets, groceries, and hardware outlets nationwide that caters to both insect and rodent categories of pest control.

Pest Off! Complete Insect Killer Odorless is specially formulated to eliminate crawling and flying insects such as cockroaches, mosquitoes, houseflies, fleas, and the like. Best of all, you don’t have to endure the unpleasant kerosene odor while it does its job. (SRP: 175g (small) – P140.00-143.00, 350g (big) – P196.00-199.00)

Pest Off! Glue Boards are the modern rat and mice catcher for modern living. They’re very convenient to use. Installation is quick. All you have to do is to place them along travel routes of rats and mice. Unlike traditional rat trap mechanisms, there is no need to place bait and set-up a contraption.  And disposal of trapped rat is easy. Hassle-free in every way! Needless to say, they’re very effective.

The glue boards trap the rats because of the strong adhesive on the board. Their paws and eventually their bodies, stick to the the board. But you’re guaranteed that the boards are safe for humans. The adhesive applied on the board is non-toxic. In case the adhesive comes in contact with your skin, you simply have to wipe it away with mineral or baby oil. Nothing to worry about! SRP of Pest Off! Glue Boards are as follows: Mice Catcher Cheese Scent – P99.00-101.00, Rat Catcher Cardboard – P148-150.00, Rat Catcher Plastic Board Cheese/Peanut Scent – P163.00-165.00
