Compared to the outdoors, your home is a very comfortable place. Unfortunately, ants, bees, spiders, rats, mice, and all the other pests think so too. Luckily, there are a few things you can do to make your home a little less attractive to them.
Keep Food Sealed
When possible, keep food sealed and protected. This goes double for pet food that might be kept outside or in a garage. Most pests can smell food from very long distances. Keeping the food in sealed containers will keep the smell down and the pests out. The less we attract them the better.
Keep Pet Areas Clean
Pets can be messy. They drop food where they eat or they may leave food uneaten that just sit there. This is like a free meal for pests. By making sure that your pets eating area is clean and that all uneaten food is cleaned and stored, you will lower the chance of pests moving into your home.
Keep Your Home Dry
As fall approaches, pests will be looking for a warm place to make their home, but they are also always searching for water. Make sure that you don’t have any leaks and that your faucets are completely shut off each time you use them.
Seal Up Your Home
Walk around your home and look for possible areas that pests (especially rodents) might enter. Lines that enter your home, places where piping enters or exits, areas around windows and doors, etc. For more detailed information on how to seal these areas please click on the following links.
