The most common types of pest in Swedish homes are mealworm beetles and carpet beetles. Unfortunately, mild winters and an increase in travelling have also led to a rise in the numbers of rats and bedbugs.

Hints on how to prevent infestations of vermin

  • Give your kitchen cupboards and drawers a thorough clean and also clean behind the cooker
  • Wash your clothes after you have been abroad and check your suitcases
  • Take a careful look at directly imported food
