Who Is Preying On You & Your Home?

The Pests Preying On You & Your Home

Insects have adapted to living in unison with humans and have taken advantage of our habitats as well. These unwanted roommates differ in visibility and impact on your home. One lone spider in a dusty corner may not harm anyone but an infestation of bed bugs will definitely leave their mark.

Let’s take a look at the pests that might be preying on you whilst living inside your home:


It’s not just the crumbs that bring ants to your table, it’s the weather mainly. They come in when it’s cold & wet and also when it’s hot & dry. Keep an eye out for carpenter ants, they won't eat the wood in your house but they will burrow into it to make nests. Spray Mortein into the holes in your walls as well as the gaps of your windows to help keep them at bay.

Dust Mites

Every house has dust mites. These little crawlies feed off dead skin cells and can thrive in any plush surface that can hold tasty particles; be it carpet, bedding or kids' toys. While you can’t completely eliminate mites, you can keep their population down by spraying them with Mortein.

Fruit Flies

You’d be amazed how quickly a fruit fly infestation can get out of hand. You may notice one fly buzzing around your fruit in the morning, then come home from work to see half a dozen more. It's not your imagination, those flies are multiplying…and fast! Fruit fly larvae hatch just 24 hours after eggs are laid, so you'll want to act fast to take them out using Mortein.


Now they’re a problem all over the country! If you see one in the kitchen or bathroom, you can be sure there are many more unseen. Once they've moved in, cockroaches are difficult to eliminate. But luckily, Mortein ensures a strong, swift, and sustained action against them.


They’re the most common insect in the world, and probably in your home as well. Carpet beetles are known to prey on dried foods in your pantry; like flour, corn meal & cereal. They like to hang out in wool clothes in storage, the carpet, lint, cracks and corners of closets and drawers.

Luckily, Mortein helps you deal with your pest problem, keeping them out of your home effectively.
