Monsoon in India is the most awaited season due to its pleasant weather. The wonderful rains also bring a host of monsoon pests such as mosquitoes and other bugs of various kinds. They are not just irritating but can also cause a host of diseases. Monsoon season in India becomes a perfect breeding ground for monsoon pests and rain insects leading to a lot of diseases. Therefore, knowing how to prevent rainy season insects during monsoons and also keeping them at bay is very essential. Most of the pests that try to thrive in the warmth or humid conditions, come straight into your house. Preventing monsoon pests becomes a daunting task if you don’t get in touch with pest control service providers as soon as possible.
Here are a few common health hazards that these pesky monsoon pests like cockroaches, termites, bed bugs, mosquitoes can cause:-
- Dengue fever is caused by mosquitoes. It causes high fever, skin rash and pain, mostly headaches and joint pain which are usually severe.
- Chikungunya is similar to the dengue fever-causing severe illness with an acute febrile phase lasting for two to five days. It is followed by a longer period of joint pains.
- Malaria is a mosquito-borne disease caused by a parasite. People with malaria often experience fever, chills, and flu-like illness. If left untreated, they may develop severe complications over the days and die.
Pests become highly active during this season giving rise to a lot of diseases which can be fatal sometimes. Here are some of the best ways that you can implement to get rid of pests as soon as possible:
1. Clear out the contaminated water pools
Most mosquitoes and other monsoon pests breed in collected stagnant water. The best way to avoid them or get rid of them is by clearing out stagnant water from your indoors as well as your surroundings. When water collects in animal dishes, gardens, and other areas make sure you clear it before it attracts monsoon pests.
2. Keep your house clean
Thorough cleaning of drains, pipes, cabinets, floors, and ceilings is the most effective way to keep your house out of insects. Check for cobwebs or cockroach eggs and if you must, utilise professional pest control services to get rid of them quickly! Old wooden or ply furniture, fixtures, built-in cupboards, drawers and closets need to be checked for termites and treated in time.
3. Utilize camphor
One of the best ways to get rid of mosquitoes in the rainy season is to make use of camphor. It acts as an effective mosquito repellent and a small piece of it can be placed at various spots in the house. Place it and leave the room closed for a few minutes. Doing so will leave your room a mosquito-free area.
4. Try insect sprays and coils
Using insect repellent sprays and installing mosquito repellent coils in the house can help you stay away from mosquitoes during monsoon. These are easily available in the market and can be bought at reasonable prices. Their fragrance or aroma helps to repel insects and they thus keep you safe.
5. Use nets and meshes
Install screens or meshes on your windows and doors. Patch up any open vents, chimneys or access points from which insects or rodents can enter. Keep the screens closed post-sunset as this is when insects attracted to indoor light will tend to enter. Block your drains and sinks with good quality strainers or screens.
The tips that are discussed above will surely help you to get rid of the common rainy season or monsoon pests and insects. But, if you think you are not getting the best results with these tips then you can go for professional pest control.
