When the weather warms up, pests become more active and start to look for new homes. As a result, it’s important to prepare your home for spring pests. Here are some tips on how to do this.
Inspect your home’s exterior and seal any cracks or crevices. Inspect window and door frames to make sure they are sealed properly.
Keep the exterior of your home clean and free of debris. Make sure to keep your lawn mowed and trimmed and remove any piles of leaves, branches, or other organic material.
Trim any overgrown trees or shrubs near your home as these can provide hiding places for pests.
Eliminate any standing water near your home as this can provide an ideal breeding ground for pests.
Close off any entry points for pests such as gaps around pipes, vents, and wires.
Use screens on windows and doors to prevent entry of pests.
Store all food in air-tight containers and clean up any spills and crumbs immediately.
Regularly vacuum and dust your home to remove any food particles and dirt.
Invest in pest control services to help keep pests away. By following these tips, you can help protect your home from spring pests and enjoy a pest-free spring season.
