bugWarmer seasons are something that we always say we look forward to, but in reality we know that they also bring the rebirth of insects and pests. Now that spring has fully set in and summer is quickly approaching, it goes without saying that the more precautionary steps that you can make, the better. At Ray Pest Control, we have mastered the techniques that eliminate pests for good. Here are a few tips that you can use to ensure that your home remains pest free for as long as possible.

Clean out any closets or cabinets.

It’s incredibly easy for insects to make a home in the tiny cracks and crevices inside of cabinets and closets. The longer that these spaces go uncleaned, the more likely it is that they will attract all sorts of bugs. Between ants, spiders, cockroaches and other springtime pests that pop up, you’ll want to prioritize cleaning out the areas and items that will attract them in the first place.

Search the foundation of your house for holes and cracks.

The foundation of your home is what will keep these pests out, so if you’re really looking to keep pests out, it’s important that you check the foundation of your home for any cracks or holes that might lead these insects and pests straight to the foundation of your home. If you notice any damage, it’s best to go ahead and get the damage taken care of immediately so that you don’t have to worry about it later on down the road when there’s an infestation in your home.

If you haven’t taken care of these issues already, it’s best to schedule out a weekend where you can really devote the time you need to get these projects done and ensure that you will be able to have a summer without any pests getting into your home. If you have let this go beyond quick cleaning tactics, you can count on the exterminators at Ray Pest Control to get your home nice and cleaned out for summer.
