Pest-Prevention Tips For Townhouses In Bangkok

Bangkok is a wonderful place to live with so many exciting things to see, do, and experience, however, it has its downsides. One of the biggest drawbacks for some people is the pest problem. When you walk down the street at night you’ll occasionally see rats scuttling from one garbage bag to another – not to mention to the relentless onslaught of cockroaches!

Then again, having to chase the occasional cockroach out of your home is a small price to pay for living in one of the most amazing countries on earth, right?

The good news is that there are a number of things that you can do to significantly reduce the frequency at which your home gets invaded by pests. In this article, we’ll share some handy pest-prevention tips!

Pest-prevention tips

While there are many advantages to living in a town house, being on the ground-level makes your home more exposed to pests such as cockroaches, rodents, and mosquitos – as opposed to living on the 50th floor of a condominium complex. In any case, there are steps you can take to keep these invasions to a minimum, such as:


  • Regularly dispose of your garbage (and invest in quality, sealed bins): particularly if you have a lot of food waste, don’t leave it rotting in your kitchen overnight. Instead, empty your trash can every evening so that you don’t have any food attractivng pests.


  • Thoroughly clean your kitchen and remove food crumbs and residue: after every cooking session and meal, make sure that your kitchen is cleaned thoroughly and that all crumbs are cleaned up. If you don’t you’ll be far more likely to have pests invade your home during the night!


  • Store food in sealed plastic containers: you can’t give pests any excuse to invade your home. By leaving pantry food packets open, you’re inviting them for a free meal. Instead, buy some sealed plastic containers and store everything away neatly, in air-tight packaging.


  • Keep your sinks and toilet areas dry: regularly mop up around your sinks and toilets to ensure that there is no stagnant, pooling water. If water keeps appearing, double check to ensure that you don’t have any leaks. Cockroaches love stagnant water in the bathroom!


  • Seal entry points into your home: go around the exterior of your home and looking for any cracks that can serve as entry points for pests. Window sills, door frames, and the fascia near your roof are the biggest offenders!



Ultimately, the best practice is to keep your home clean and tidy. By doing so, you will be making your home very unattractive to prospective pests that are looking for a place to hide with free food and water on tap!

In newer, well-developed properties such as the town houses in Golden Town Sukhumvit-Bearing Station, pest problems shouldn’t be too much of an issue. In any case, keeping your space clean and tidy is an essentiality!
