Everyone wants to instill their personality into their home and to make it their own. You can do that by filling it with things that you love, painting the walls colors that make you feel good, and even by building onto it to make it bigger or more practical.

Coli and Salmonella, Cholera, Typhoid Fever, and Leprosy. House flies even defecate and vomit on surfaces that they land on which includes your food.

Once you get pests in your home, it can be nearly impossible to get them out, but with the proper maintenance, you can clear them out as well as keep them from coming back. Many people think that if they keep a clean home, they will never have a pest problem, but it does not really matter.

Many home remedies help such as using peppermint oil in your home but will not get rid of pests permanently. The will also be more aggressive and more likely to bite. If you have small children or the elderly living in your home, you need to be more careful since a bite can be deadly since the immune system of babies and the elderly tend to be lower. The immune system s also lower in some people who have a health condition. A bug bite can be a setback for even a healthy person but is much more serious if someone who is smaller or weaker gets bit.
