So, without further ado, here’s how you can prepare for each season and keep pests out for good.
#1 Screen Windows
This may be a no-brainer to some, but it’s vital you keep the screens on your windows intact. If there are holes, it’s time to replace them or patch them. If there are small openings, pests will find their way inside. Also, if there are small holes in your home, those too should be patched and/or screened to prevent pests from getting inside to make your home their home.
#2 Keep It Dry
Areas, including attics, crawl spaces and basements should be kept as dry as possible with plenty of ventilation. Typically, pests enjoy making their home in places that are damp because it allows them to survive easily. By keeping these areas dry, you’ll be able to eliminate the amount of pests hiding in your home.
#3 Seal Off Holes
If there are holes in walls, doors or the siding of your home, it’s time to seal them off completely. Use caulk, drywall or steel wool to block the holes. Holes as small as a dime could invite unwanted pests and rodents; yes, rodents. Doing this will give you the prevention needed to block pests as best as you can without the help from an exterminator.
#4 Keep a Clean Home
A clean home is usually a pest-free home. Think about it; if you have food crumbs in and around your kitchen, it’s an open invitation for pests to come and clean them up for you. By keeping food in containers, wiping down counters and disposing of garbage regularly, you’ll be able to keep rodents and other pests away easier. Tip: if you have a pet, keep their dishes put away when not in use.
#5 Home Improvement
Improve your home by installing weather strips on your garage door and doors on your home that lead the outdoors. This goes above and beyond to keep the pests that invade your home at a minimum.
