How do you keep insects away from your flat? Especially those low floor units who are living near the rubbish chutes.

Ants are easier to prevent... donít leave food around... put in fridge or air tight container...

Wipe table off excess water... some ants are attracted to water... if there are ants already... I will put ants traps bought from NTUC...

Cockroaches are harder to prevent...

its cold outside so they come in.

u can open all the windows turn on the fan and make the room colder than outside. then they will go next door.

Firstly remove food source of the pests you are targeting.

Secondly,keep yr house clean and clutter free.

Take additionally deterrence measure like cleaning yr kitchen cabinets regularly and place moth ball to prevent them from nestling inside.
