Hot Pepper

Sometimes you just have to outsmart the pests by setting traps for them around the house, from mechanical traps to traps using foods and or scents they may like depending on the pests you are dealing with. Some traps can be set by using plants that may lure the animal especially if the disturbance is from one particular pest, that way you can eliminate the threat and have peace of mind.

Wall Surfaces

Crawlies like lizards and rats find it easy to crawl on rough walls and may even rest on them, so if the house is in an area that is filled with either of these things, it will be better to avoid using rough walls.
