Moving into a new home can be exciting, but it can also be the cause of a lot of stress. In the list of all the things that can go wrong while moving in, pest issues can be somewhere at the top. Nothing can spoil the ambiance of a new home like creepy crawlies can. To avoid the hassle of dealing with a raging pest infestation later on, there are a few things you can do while moving in to prevent it.
There are mainly two things to consider while moving into your new home:
Are you unknowingly bringing along pests from your old home to the new one?
Bed bugs are quite adept at hitch-hiking by sticking on to clothes, bags, mattresses, couches, and so on. They can also multiply pretty quickly since a female bed bug can produce up to twelve eggs in a day. If you had a bed bug problem in your old home that was left untreated, there is a high chance of them coming along with you to your new home.
Are you sure that there isn’t an existing and unchecked pest problem in your new home?
Apart from bed bugs, rodents can be extremely troublesome to have in your new home. It won’t be pleasant to listen to rats scurrying around in the attic on your first night at the new house. Rats can be even more problematic than bed bugs when it comes to the alarming rates at which they multiply. Moreover, they can wreck your furniture, spoil your sleep, damage your food and most importantly, spread life-threatening diseases. If the situation is left ignored, you could end up with an army of rats scuttling around your house and backyard.
What is the solution then?
There is nothing to do except to nip the oncoming pest infestation in the bud. MDX Concepts has a range of products that can help you with that. While bringing in the furniture into your new home, you can try using Gypsum Bed Bug Spray by MDX Concepts on them to make sure that no bed bugs are going to be sleeping in your bed anymore.
