Hello and welcome to yet another post. Hope you have been well. Today we discussing about small creatures that you should get rid if now before it is too late. Sometimes we just ignore these creatures because they are small and tiny yet they can do a serious damage if not controlled. Let us dive straight to the first one.

Rats
Rats rats rats, you guessed right that we would start with this one. According to Wikipedia 
Rats are various medium-sized, long-tailed rodents. Species of rats are found throughout the order Rodentia, but stereotypical rats are found in the genus Rattus. Other rat genera include Neotoma, Bandicota and Dipodomys.

Rats are typically distinguished from mice by their size. I am one person who have had a hard time dealing with rats not rates😄 Growing up i was so scared of rats, i was even scared of a dead rat! Rats can end up taking control of your house if you fail to control them, yes you cannot take them all out but atleast you can manage them.

What happens when we fail to control rats
The answer is disaster! once you fail to control the rats popolation that is it! Rats will eat your groceries, they will mess your furniture, rats will definitely tear those speacial outfits exepensive or less expensive. Rats wilk scare your kids and bring fear in them, rats will make noise especially at night times while you're trying to sleep,  rats will leave a path of destruction if not dealt with earlier.

Solution
Get rat killer from your local stores or vendors. Make sure you read the instructions before using it. Most importantly, keep the rat killer away from  children and store them in a dry and cool place.

Mosquitoes
I have never seen anything as stuborn as a tiny mosquito. I remember this other night when i ended up slaping my chick after several attempts to keep it away. According to Wikipedia  Mosquitoes are a group of about 3,500 species of small insects that are flies. Within Diptera they constitute the family Culicidae. The word "mosquito" is Spanish for "little fly. Mosquitoes are more than irritating and they can be harmful as well if not taken seriously.

This is what happens when you don't take mosquitoes seriosly
They will bite you and may lead to an outbreak of malaria, they are so noisy such that you cannot have a peaceful sleep,  they will bite you and will leave pimples that are so painful.

Solution
Keep your yard clean and get rid of stagnent water around your area with chemicals, use mosquito nets, use mosquito repellent lotion, use mosquito coil i mean they are so many solutions out there and one of the best is to visit any health centre around your area for more help.

Flies
In shona we call them nhunzi, these are the worst! it is true that we cannot get rid of flies at an absolute rate but we can atleast to manage them. Where there is dirty there are flies, if you lack good hygiene surely flies will be there, they can be found everywhere where there is dump and dirt.

According to Wikipedia A fly (plural: flies) is an insect of the order Diptera. The Diptera is a large order of advanced flying insects. Their most obvious distinction from other insects is in their flight. A typical fly has two flight wings on its thorax and a pair of halteres.

This is what happens when you fail to control flies
Flies will cause diarrhea and this may lead to loss of life. People will suffer serious running stomach which are usually the symptoms of diarrhea, sometimes you will be feeling deezy and a series of headaches. This will weeken your body within a very short period of time and may lead to death.

So i urge you to keep your home surroundings clean always and use chemicals that eliminate flies if possible.This will protect you and your family from serious disaster, be responsible today!

Ants
According to Wikipedia Ants are eusocial insects of the family Formicidae and, along with the related wasps and bees, belong to the order Hymenoptera. Ants evolved from wasp-like ancestors in the Cretaceous period, about 140 million years ago, and diversified after the rise of flowering plants.

Ants have existed for such a long time ago, and nomatter how hard we try we will not contain them but we can maintain them.If not taken seriously ants will leave a path of destruction in your homes. They will storm your food and bite you in day time or night time. 

The major problem is when they make hores beneath your house, this will weaken your house and may lead to its downfall during windy times or during the raining season. Make sure you get ant killer before it is too late and also remember that it just reduces the population as they will always come around again.

Cockroaches
According to Wikipedia Cockroaches are insects of the order Blattodea, which also includes termites. About 30 cockroach species out of 4,600 are associated with human habitats. About four species are well known as pests. The cockroaches are an ancient group, dating back at least as far as the Carboniferous period, some 320 million years ago. 

Cockroaches can be found in your cupboards, wardrobes, plates and anywhere in your home. They love food soo much, packed or not, scattered or not cockroaches will always be there. The only way to get rid of cockroaches is by using chemicals that are meant to kill and eliminate them.

Conclusion
At times we ignore these instects and creatures just because they are tiny and small, yet they will do a serious damage to us and our homes, so i encourage you to please stop this calture of ignoring a fly just because it is a small insect yet that tiny fly may do a lot of harm. From now on let us pay attention and do the right thing #takecontrol.
