Pest Prevention Tips

 

 

Here are a few easy steps you can take to stop pests and termites from invading your home:

 

Pest Tips:

  • Seal cracks in your home's exterior to help keep pests from getting in.
  • Properly seal windows and doors with tight-fitting screens and weather stripping.
  • Don't leave uncovered food sitting out inside or out as it attracts ants and flies
  • Store clothing in plastic boxes to prevent fabric pests from getting to them.
  • Proper ventilation keeps areas unsuitable for cockroaches and other pests as well as improving the heating and cooling efficiency of your home.
  • Remove any piles of debris, stones, bricks, etc., around your home to prevent pests and rodents from finding cover.
  • Resolve any moisture problems in or under your home. Wet crawl spaces or basements are a magnet to pests.

Termite Tips:

  • Repair any roof or plumbing leaks as these leaks can allow termites to survive above ground in a house.
  • Eliminate any wood-to-soil contact around your foundation and store firewood away from your home.
  • Prevent mulch and soil from touching the siding of your home as they make it easier for termites to enter.
  • Use mesh screens on all windows and doors, as well as in ventilation openings for attics and crawl spaces.
  • Contract with a professional pest control company to regularly inspect your home to help detect termite activity for prompt treatment.
