Streets Singapore


You want a pest-free environment and there is nothing wrong with that. However, there will always be one annoying pest that always thrive – mice. Here in Singapore, there are many pest control programs provided by certified pest controllers that you can avail of. But at the end of the day, it is better to control mice on your own.

With this, it is crucial that you know some programs that you can do to control mice. The key to getting rid of them is to seal your home. This means that you have to protect the openings through which they will use to enter your home. For further details, here are some effective mice control programs that you can consider:

Seal the house

It was mentioned above that the only way to keep them away from your house is to seal your home. In order to be successful, you need to know where they are getting in and seal it. You can do this by performing a thorough inspection of your home. Remember that a mouse only needs ½ centimetre wide hole to get inside the house.

When you inspect, start with all your corners and look very keenly. When you identified possibly entry points, the best thing that you can do is to install steel wool or wire mesh. Do not forget about the vents and the pipe holes.

Check the lawn

Do not just focus inside the house. You need to check your surroundings especially the lawn. The best thing that you should do with your lawn is to keep it trimmed and moved as it can deter the mice. Remember that bushy plants can give shelter to the mice. You have to demand two foot area cement surrounding your house to keep away rodents.

Clean the kitchen

Rodents in general risk going inside the house because there are plenty of good and water sources. The very first thing that you need to do is to make sure that you clean your kitchen. When you are about to sleep, make sure there are no debris, faucets are locked and surfaces are sanitized. Never forget to wash the dishes.

Set traps

You did a fine job keeping the mice outside the house but what happens when there are some inside the house? This is the time that you need to set the traps. The most humane traps are called live traps. It will allow you to release the captured one outside alive. Be careful of putting poison because you will suffer the smell when time comes.

There will always be something inside the house. Many Singaporeans endure insects like ants and spiders inside the house. The good news is that you can get rid of it especially if you have spider problem. While many spiders have non-poisonous bites, you do not want it in your home. Poisonous or not, when they are threatened, they will surely bite and you do not want that experience especially if you are particularly afraid of it.

If spiders become nuisance in your house, it is time that you do something about it. Here are some things that you need to know about it:


Spiders do not need any food debris like mice or ants because insects alone are enough for them. Since they depend on insects, your first measure is to cut down the insect population inside your house. Moreover, you have to reduce light use at night. You have to know that lights draw insects. You also need to change you’re your bulb to “bug light” outdoors. Alternatively, you can use insecticide as a barrier and put it outside your house’s foundation. These will surely help you prevent insects from entering.


There are also other ways to keep spiders away from your house. You have to know prevention tips by making changes to your environment. For example, you have to eliminate excess debris (if you have in your yard) or if you do not want to throw it, at least move it to the farthest area of your house. If your lawn has shrubs and other plants, cut it down or at least trim it. Indoors, you should seal cracks and crevices. If there are cardboard boxes, replace it with plastic bins. More importantly, keep your house clutter-free and clean.


You have to know that there is natural repellent that you can count on. Lemon oil for instance can repel most of spider species. You have to wipe the walls and surfaces of problematic rooms inside the house. If you can find lemon cleaners, apply it as well. You can also depend on pesticides. These pesticides are readily available in the market – you just need to find products that contain cypermethrin or deltamethrin. When you use pesticide, always use it with caution because it can be a danger to everyone.

Remember that these measures do not only get rid of spiders but other insects as well. The key here is to be consistent with the measures you implemented. It will be difficult to get rid of any insect if you are not serious about it.
