Having a hard time eradicating pests? Here some things you should do to have a pest free home.
- Make seasonal checks
Rodents seek shelter during cold winter months, so it’s important to check your homes for areas that may be susceptible to entry by tiny animals.
- Remove any wood piles or debris
Small animals and insects often take shelter in moist and dark areas. Don’t allow soil or mulch to build up around the foundation. Firewood should be stored away from the home.
- Trim tree limbs and branches near the home
Animals like squirrels and raccoons can scurry across them to make their way into your attic. Hiring a tree service companyto cut back overhanging limbs can remove a possible point of entry.
- Seal holes or openings in windows and doors
Seal holes or any openings to prevent insects to enter your home
- Secure containers indoors and outdoors
Make sure garbage cans and recycling bins are sealed and placed away from the house.
- Always clean the kitchen
Clear food from all surfaces, clean dishes every night, and sweep floors of crumbs. Always disinfect your kitchen
- Schedule regular inspections
Even if you’re not aware of an infestation or pest problem, have a professional periodically inspect and treat your home before one occurs. Ask about potential problems with termites, bed bugs or rodents.
