When the household is in the position to battle nature within, it can be a rather ugly affair. Bugs, rats, ants, and all kinds of varmint are perpetually trying to enter our households and take over. In an older house, there is no amount of cleanliness and fastidiousness that can change the household’s battle against nature. Bugs will find their way through cracks and inhabit your pasta, your sugar, and anything else they can slip into for a little nourishment. The rodents who seek warm places for the winter are likely to find their way into the household and tarnish what was once your favorite cereal box. They all want into your household and it can be a full time job to try to battle against them.
These little buggers are smart, and they have 24 hours a day and 7 days a week to commit to their goal. You, on the other hand, have a limited amount of time to engage in the household’s war. You want to extricate the little guys, and you keep going after them with both barrels, but they are determined. Once you get rid of some, a few more creep in to take over the household in the next wave.
There are many products on the market that can help you ward off the varmint of the moment, and you can easily spend upwards of $500 per year just getting the creatures of the outdoors out of your household. However, without a constant dedication to eradicating the household of such creatures, they might actually win.
