• Mosquitoes – Plant mosquito repellant trees inside and outside, namely citronella or lemon grass, catnip and marigold. Empty containers lying around that may serve as breeding sites. Cover canals to discourage breeding or place motor oil.
Security system

• Invest in security systems such as CCTVs mounted in corners and motion triggered devices like the infrared sensor.
• Install peephole for doors where anyone can be seen outside
• Use lighting with timers to set illumination when not around the house, this is to make house occupied.

The above suggestions are a few of many house improvements that makes the house more hospitable to live. Most can be done by DIY but others, such as fixing capacitor in the high voltage electrical pole are a bad idea.
