For many people, the bathroom is a sanctuary — a place to unwind in the tub after a long day or find some privacy away from family members. When you start to notice bugs in the bathroom, however, it can feel less like an intrusion and more like an invasion.
Note: Though the pests mentioned below are commonly referred to as “bugs,” they are actually insects and arthropods. Unfortunately, many insects and other arthropods are attracted to moisture, making the bathroom a place these pests love to hang out. Read on to learn which insects might be lurking in the drains or moving around inside your bathroom walls — and how to help get rid of them.
Despite their name, house centipedes don’t always have 100 legs. Depending on the species, they have between 15-191 legs. However, what they do have is a tendency to sometimes pop up in your shower.
House centipedes can be found in your bathroom when they’re searching for other insects and bathroom bugs. As centipedes are predators, they can actually be beneficial insects as they feed on spiders and other insects found inside the home.
An effective way to help get rid of house centipedes is to clean and thoroughly vacuum the remote areas of your bathrooms, including the insides of cabinets, behind drawers and under shelves. Additionally, keep your bathroom as dry as possible by controlling its humidity (check your bathroom exhaust fan, or have one installed) and having any plumbing leaks that you detect repaired as soon as possible. This can help control other insects and bathroom bugs that may be found, thus reducing the food source for the house centipedes.
Out of all the pests that make themselves welcome in our homes, spiders might be the most divisive. Some people almost welcome them as an ally in the fight against nuisance bugs like flies, roaches, etc. Others, however, are terrified and want them removed as soon as possible. Wherever you stand on spiders, don’t be surprised to encounter them in your bathroom.
Spiders don’t necessarily have a preference for damp places like bathrooms, but they can show up there from time to time. That’s because they are following their prey. If you discover a spider in your bathroom and want it gone, a vacuum can help you remove it. Vacuum any remaining webbing to discourage other spiders from moving in. This can also help remove spider eggs in your home. You should avoid squishing spiders, especially if it is a wolf spider.
While dangerous spiders like the brown recluse do like damp environments, you are much more likely to find them in places like cellars and crawl spaces. If you are concerned about handling a spider because you cannot identify it, a pest control professional can help.
Silverfish are tiny, wingless insects easily identifiable due to their namesake silvery color and three antenna-like tails. They also move like fish in a water.
Silverfish feed on mold, fungi and various carbohydrates. For that reason, they are a common kitchen pest. But, as moisture in the bathroom can lead to mold growth, silverfish may establish themselves there as well. Silverfish are also nocturnal, meaning they are most active at night.
As unpleasant as they are, silverfish are not generally dangerous, though they can trigger allergic reactions in some people. Also, if left unchecked, they can eventually spread and damage any household items that contain carbohydrates and sugars, like wallpaper and book bindings (because of the adhesive glue).
Of all the bathroom bugs, cockroaches may be among the most infamous. They can often be spotted in bathrooms, where they like to dwell thanks to the abundance of water. They can also cause headaches because an infestation can be so difficult to control.
To combat cockroaches, consider taking the time to look for cracks in your floor or walls. Have any plumbing leaks repaired, and consider sealing the wall cavities around your pipes with waterproof caulk. Clean your drains regularly, and cover them with stoppers or screens to help keep cockroaches out of your home.
While these tips can help reduce the conditions that attract pests to your home, a more well-rounded plan is recommended to help fully remove them and keep them out. A pest control professional can help. Give Terminix® a call to have one of our technicians inspect your bathroom and recommend a control and prevention plan.
The Best Mouse Trap Method
Everyone has seen the cartoon mouse trap: A big wedge of cheese perched precariously on a small wooden rectangle, just waiting for an unsuspecting mouse to come along. Most modern mouse traps don’t use pieces of cheese, although they can still use food as bait. One of the most popular baits, believe it or not, is peanut butter. There are still versions of the snap trap from cartoons, but there are also other kinds like electronic traps. Because these traps usually mean dealing with dead mice, plenty of people wonder if there’s a way to help get rid of mice without classic mouse traps. Although mouse traps are the most effective in helping to get of mice, you can also try the following natural methods to see if they help remove these pesky rodents.
How to Help Remove Fruit Flies from Your Home
Fruit flies are one of the most common household pests and they can be a huge nuisance for homeowners. Not only that, but researchers have found that fruit flies can “transfer bacteria from a contaminated source, food, or waste to surfaces or ready-to-eat food.
How to Naturally Get Rid of Bugs on Plants
Buying houseplants can put you at risk for harboring unwanted pest infestations. Before these bugs cause damage to your new plant, know how to take care of them using natural remedies.
How to Help Prevent Mosquito Bites
Itchy bites and illness may occur after exposure to some arthropods such as mosquitoes and ticks. The bites can cause discomfort and, in some cases, transmit pathogens (bacteria, viruses and protozoans) that can cause a variety of diseases. Some examples of diseases that are of concern in the United States include: (mosquito) chikungunya, dengue, La Crosse encephalitis, West Nile fever, Zika; (tick) Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever. The good news? There are many precautions you can take to help avoid bites from mosquitoes and ticks.
How to Get Rid of BedBugs Once and For All?
Nighty night! don’t let the bedbugs bite, whoops!! Too late! Well, before these creepy-crawlies have you tearing your full house and bed apart, let’s take a step back and see what these bedbugs are really all about.
How do you know if you have bedbugs or not?
If you wake up in the morning and you’ve got some nasty bites, there’s a good possibility. Look for one in box springs, mattresses, furniture, clothing, bed boards, and even wallpaper. If an apple seed sized, oval-shaped creature desperately tries to run away as fas as it could, that’s a bed bug.
Why these creatures from hell are in my room?
Because we are their menu, they feed on our blood. Bedbugs are tiny, about the size of apple seeds especially if they had a meal the previous night. And why they are called bedbugs? Well, they love to live with us in bed and snuggle with us all night long. Unlike mosquitoes, however, they can’t fly so they have to hit your way into our bedroom.
Does cleaning help?
The answer is a big NO. Bed bugs don’t care if your house is clean or dirty, all they want is a warm human to sleep with. You can come across them even in hospital wards where cleaning is always a priority.
What about starving them to death?
That’s not a good idea, not because it’s cruel but because you can’t do that. Bedbugs can go months and months without a meal. In fact, research has shown that an adult bedbug can survive for up to 5 months without a single meal.
Using Ultrasonic Insect repellents
Ultrasonic insect repellents are a clean, cheap and risk-free way to repel most of the insects and small rodents. When it comes to bedbugs, Ultrasonic repellents got competing reviews from users. Some said the method actually worked for them and yet others were not equally happy. Maybe try yourself and see how that goes for you. You can order the celebrated PestReject here.
Getting rid of bedbugs
Getting rid of bedbug infestation needs a whole new approach, a complete strategy depending upon the extent of the infestation and other factors. The treatment should go through the following steps:
- Define the problem, extent of the infestation.
- Prepare the ground.
- Start the treatment.
- Take measures to prevent another infestation.
Define the problem, extent of the infestation
- Make sure they really are bedbugs.
- Inspect the areas and identify the extent of the infestation. See if you can find them in good numbers around the house. If your house is badly infested you may find them in bunches and groups inside furniture cracks, wooden boxes and places I mentioned in the beginning.
- Living in an apartment? Tell your landlord to inspect other apartments in the building.
Prepare the ground
- First thing first, declutter your home. Clutter means more habitat for bedbugs. You can do this by removing items not in use anymore, this includes old magazines, useless clothing, furniture, and utensils.
- While you declutter, make sure you don’t spread the pests.
- Put all the clothes, bedsheets and pillows for a deep washing. Once done, put them inside plastic bags.
- Seal any open areas. Close cracks in furniture, glue down open wallpaper. Open electronic outlets also need to be tapped up.
- Remove everything from the room to be treated. By everything, I literally mean everything with an exception to heavy household items like beds and closets.
- Move your bed away from the wall. This will stop bedbugs from climbing over.
Start the treatment
First, make sure that you are ready to do all the things mentioned above. If you think you are not ready, stop reading more and call the squad. If you are ready to go on your own, great! Take the war against bedbugs as a challenge and aim at victory.
If you have come across a post discussing bedbug treatment previously, you might have noted that people talk about two different methods to eradicate the pests-Chemical and Non-chemical. Whether you go chemical or not, the whole process is complicated and needs both time and energy. So, in order not see a bedbug again after the treatment, in fact, for your worst nightmare, I recommend you do as I did at my home_combining both. And why not, why give even an iota of a chance to failure after all that hard work, right!
Start the crackdown
- Choose your first room for the treatment.
- Thoroughly vacuum all the places including any gaps, cracks left, closets, all the furniture, electronics and anything you can.
- Empty your vacuum cleaner in a plastic bag, seal it and place it in the deep freezer for a day, throw it away later.
- Place your vacuum cleaner inside a plastic bag.
Once the room is thoroughly cleaned, vacuumed and any visible bedbugs are hunted down, you are ready to go ahead and start the chemical treatment.
- Harris Home Insect Killer: Odorless, works for weeks, registered with the Environmental Protection Agency for its safety in homes around children and pets.
- Ortho home defense: Comes with a battery-operated wand. Kills bedbugs and eggs on contact. The spray doesn’t stain clothes.
- Pyrethrins and pyrethroids: Commonly used but some bedbugs seem to have developed resistance against them.
Please get the instructions on using the chemicals from the manufacturer. It’s always a good practice to seal off the room after spraying the chemical for at least 3 days. Repeat the same treatment with other rooms.
Finally, Use bedbug-proof covers (often called encasements) for your mattresses, pillows, and box spring.
Make sure that the covers come with zippers so that any bedbugs trapped inside eventually die.
Wish you the best of luck in your fight against the creatures from hell! Share your experience in the comments below. Also, don’t forget to spread the word for the good of others.

4 Levels of Spiritual Warfare Against Demonic Spirits
In the realm of spiritual warfare against demonic spirits, I believe there are 4 basic levels in which an individual believer may have to face – depending on what you may be dealing with in your present set of circumstances and what you may have in your past background.
But before I get into exactly what these four areas are, I want to give you some very basic verses from the Bible showing you the importance that God the Father is placing on that we realize the reality of demonic spirits in this world, and that we not be afraid to engage and cast them out of people when we do run across them in this life.
Here are 8 very powerful verses from the Bible, all showing us that we are not to be afraid of demons, and that we are to directly engage with them if we have to, operating under God’s authority and anointing to be able to do so.
- And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved, but he who does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will follow those who believe. In my name they will cast out demons, they will speak with new tongues, they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick and they will recover.” (Mark 16:15-18)
- “Then Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit to Galilee … the Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor, He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord.” (Luke 4:14-18)
- “Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” (Luke 10:19)
- “Then He called His twelve disciples together and gave them power and authority over all demons, and to cure diseases. He sent them to preach the kingdom of God and to heal the sick.” (Luke 9:1)
- “And He called the twelve to Him, and began to send them out two by two, and gave them power over unclean spirits … And they cast out many demons, and anointed with oil many who were sick, and healed them.” (Mark 6:7,13)
- “And when He had called His twelve disciples to Him, He gave them power over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease.” (Matthew 10:1)
- “But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. And as you go, preach, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’ “Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.” (Matthew 10:6-8)
- “For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.” (1 John 3:8)
If you will notice, every time Jesus gave His apostles the power and command to go out and walk with His anointing, He always told them to cast out demons as one of His specific commands – no exceptions!
It has been estimated by many Bible scholars that approximately 25% of the miracles Jesus had performed were Him casting demons out of people. Satan and his demons are not confined to the Bottomless Pit at this time. This event will not happen until Jesus returns back to us in His second coming. Until that event happens, Satan and his demons are still free to roam in the “air” seeking who they are going to try and devour next.
As Christians, we always have to remember that the devil and his demons are already defeated foes. Jesus has already defeated Satan at the cross when He was crucified.
We thus have to learn how to engage and defeat the devil and his demons when they do try to move in on a person or a situation – and sometimes this means a real live deliverance – because demons can attach themselves to people when they do move in for an attack.
And once they do, the only way to be able to drive them out is by the power of God!
Before I get into the four specific areas in which demons will try and come against people, especially Christians, there is one more big debate going on right now in the Body of Christ about how far demons can go with Christians. This debate is whether or not a demon can actually enter in on the inside of a Christian.
Many believe that once you are saved and become born again, that demons cannot enter in on the inside of you. The Bible tells us that the Holy Spirit will literally come in and enter in on the inside of your human spirit at the moment of your conversion with Jesus. As a result of our bodies now becoming the temple of the Holy Spirit, they believe there is no way that a demon or a group of demons can enter in on the inside of your body.
At first glance, this does appear to be a very logical argument. However, what they are missing is the fact that the Bible tells us that we have three, distinct, separate parts to our being. We have a body, a soul, and a spirit. The Holy Spirit is living and dwelling in your human spirit, but He is not living up in your soul or body area.
If a Christian ends up committing a severe, door-opening sin and transgression against the Lord giving the demons full legal right to be able to directly attack him, then what the demons will try and do if they can get away with it is try and enter into that person’s body and soul. They will not be able to enter into the Christian’s spirit because the Holy Spirit is already living in there. But they will be able to enter into the body and soul of that person if the transgression has been deemed to be severe enough by the Lord.
Talk to any deliverance minister who does deliverances on a regular basis, and every single one of them will tell you that demons can enter in on the inside of a Christian, and that they then have to be cast out of them by way of an actual deliverance. In fact, they cannot cast the demons out of a person unless that person is a Christian to begin with, or unless that person is willing to become a Christian if they are not saved.
If an unsaved person has demons living and operating on the inside of them, they will have no spiritual authority to be able to cast the demons out of them. This kind of deliverance is only available for born-again Christians.
One of the things Christians can do to totally safeguard themselves from ever having a demon try to enter in on the inside of them is to receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. We have an article in the Bible Basics section of our site on exactly what this gift is all about and how to properly receive it.
What happens with this second experience is that the Holy Spirit will release from your spirit and come up and enter into your soul. Once the Holy Spirit is residing in both your spirit and soul areas, then the demons will not be able to enter into your soul since the Holy Spirit is now living in there as a result of having received this gift.
This is why after a Christian gets delivered from demons, a deliverance minister will try and get the person to receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit – to help safeguard and prevent the demons from ever being able to get back in on the inside of that person ever again.
This debate has been going on for a long time in the Body of Christ and will obviously never be resolved anytime in the near future. The only thing that I can personally tell you is that I have come across quite a few Christians who have had demons literally dwelling on the inside of them and they all had to have the demons cast out of them by way of an actual deliverance.
At the end of this article, I will give you a list of the best books ever written on the subject of deliverance and engaging with demons. Each one of these books have been written by very creditable, anointed men and women of God who have learned much in this area of spiritual warfare. And what you will find out very quickly when reading from each one of them is that they have all found out in the real battlefields of life where this kind of activity does exist, that Christians can draw demons on the inside of them if the demons have the appropriate legal rights to be able to enter in.
As I get into the four specific areas where demons can directly attack a Christian, you will see me break this down into two very basic areas. If demons come in for an attack, they will either try and attack you from an outside position, which means they are attacking you from the “air.” When they are attacking you from an outside position, they are not on the inside of your body or soul. These attacks are coming at you from the outside of your being.
The other position that demons can attack you is from the inside position, which means they are attacking you from the inside of your body. And if they are on the inside of your body being able to attack you from this inside position, then something has happened that has given them the legal right to be able to enter in on the inside of you.
Your job will then be to find out what their legal right is so that you can get it properly broken before God the Father. Once you have properly broken all of their legal rights before God the Father, then you can turn around and command them to now leave you in the name of Jesus.
Find out what their legal rights are, properly break those legal rights before God the Father, and then turn around and verbally cast all of them out in the name of your Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
As much as I hate to say this, there is a real war game going on between God and the devil for all of our souls. And in this war game are real, live, demonic spirits who will come after people, especially Christians – and they will try to get away with inflicting as much death, terror, destruction, and oppression as they possibly can.
We are to be as bold as lions, and we are to learn how to walk in the anointing of God so that we can properly use the power and authority that God has already given to each one of us through His Holy Spirit.
The Bible makes it very clear as to what kind of big picture we all have to deal with. Each Christian thus has to make up their own personal mind as to how they will deal with this big picture and the war games that are really going on behind the scenes between God and the devil.
The apostle Paul could not have said it any better when he said that our real battle in this life is not with flesh and blood, but with principalities and powers, which are demons and demon powers.
You can either learn how to rise up and walk with the anointing and power of God in your life so as to be able to do battle against your enemies, whether they be demons or other evil people – or you can choose to hide your head in the sand and let demons and other evil people keep tearing you and your family to pieces.
We have another article in the “Spiritual Warfare” section of our site titled, “Battle Verses of the Bible.” In this article, I give you 100 of the best battle verses from the Bible showing you that God the Father is a “Man of War,” that He does have a war side to His personality, and that He will not hesitate to go into battle for you and your close loved ones if you are willing to stand up and fight your enemies as a true soldier of Jesus Christ.
But before God can go into battle for you, you will first have to be willing to march onto that battlefield and face your enemy head on like David did with Goliath. The choice is yours.
In the “Testimonies” section of our site, we have several powerful testimonies from people who were taught how to directly engage with their enemies, and in several of these cases, their enemies were demonic spirits.
These people were all getting torn apart with what these demons were able to get away with – and this was all occurring because they did not know how to directly engage with them and how to drive them off them and their current situation.
Once we showed them how to go on the offensive and directly engage with these demons, every single one of them received complete and total deliverance – and in most of the cases, deliverance came within 24-48 hours. This is how powerful a thing it really is if you can learn how to go on the offensive against your enemies by operating under the authority, power, and guidance of God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ.
Now onto the first 2 different areas you may have to face when dealing with any type of direct attacks from demonic spirits.

I’ve experienced many attacks from demons but the one thing I did realize that there is power in the name of Jesus this I know one night I was sleeping in the bed and a demon literally manifested in the flesh before me had his teeth around my nose it wanted to rip it off my face I was terrorized and when I called on the name of Jesus three times it diminished and not only did it leave my presence the scars on my nose also diminish the teeth marks on my face also diminished I took pictures for myself as a reminder of just how Satan operates in this world one of the things I realized is he can function at his best when we walk in fear and not by faith and believing that Jesus is always with us and protect us that’s why he said no weapon shall form or prosper I have been under attack by many different types of demons and each time I called on the name of Jesus every time they tried to even take my breath away in the midnight hour they were not successful call on the name of Jesus there is power in his name and at the sound of the name of Jesus they do flee I’m just thankful that I knew enough to do that based upon what the elders of my church home kept repeatedly saying call on his name even when I get demonic scratches or scars like I’m being clawed on my body I fear no more evil because of the name of Jesus I simply take a bottle of anointed oil rub it on the scars and with a matter of time they are gone so those of you who are walking and fear or fear the strong demons when I tell you the one that attacked me as I laid in my bed was huge and big he wasn’t big enough for the name of Jesus cuz the minute I called his name like I said it disappeared and never bothered me again I also dated someone who was also filled with demon impartation who found an entrance to get to me I want to fairly say to each and every one of them that reads my comment demon’s love open entries via the mouth the nose and even physically you can allow them to become internal within because it happened to me and I had to seek deliverance and after I seek my deliverance and ask Jesus to free me in his name anointed myself with hyssop oil and stayed in prayer if you are not a believer and you develop a strong prayer life believe with all your heart and mind that they can no longer have access to you it shall come to pass in Jesus name he is the only one that can shut down open portals demons have to flee at his name and they have to lose you in his name from all the torment and whispering and remember they have no power whatsoever if you believe that and fear them not because they work their best when they cause fear in us so I hope this was a help to someone and you can and will have peace of mind
