WAYS TO KEEP PESTS OUT OF YOUR HOME DURING RAINY SEASON

We have been experiencing rains across Uganda for the past few weeks and more pests are likely to invade our homes. When it rains, pests face many risks like losing food sources, shelter, drowning. During the rainy season, pests are chased out of their habitats which forces them to look for a new shelter. They come to our homes looking for food, shelter, warmth, water. Pests are dangerous because they spread diseases, cause fire outbreaks by chewing wire cables
