- Seal Entry Points: One of the most important things you can do to prevent pests from entering your home is to seal any entry points. This includes sealing cracks and gaps around doors, windows, and pipes. Be sure to check the roof and foundation for any openings as well.
- Properly Store Food: Spring is a time when many pests, such as ants and rodents, are looking for sources of food. To prevent them from invading your pantry, make sure all food is stored in airtight containers and clean up spills and crumbs promptly.
- Keep a Clean Home: A clean home is less attractive to pests, so make sure to keep your living spaces clean and tidy. Regularly vacuum carpets and sweep floors, and don’t let dirty dishes pile up in the sink.
- Address Moisture Issues: Many pests, such as termites and cockroaches, are attracted to moisture. To prevent them from taking up residence in your home, address any moisture issues, such as leaky pipes or standing water.
- Schedule Regular Pest Inspections: Finally, scheduling regular pest inspections with a professional pest control company can help you catch any potential problems before they become major issues. A pest control expert can identify any areas of concern and provide recommendations for prevention and treatment.
