Pest Free Home

As spring blooms and warmer weather invites us to open our windows and enjoy the fresh air, it also brings out pests seeking refuge in our homes. From ants to spiders to rodents, these unwanted guests can quickly become a nuisance if not addressed promptly. However, with a few preventive measures, you can keep your home pest-free throughout the season. Here are some essential tips for keeping pests out of your house this spring.


Sweep and Mop Regularly: One of the simplest yet most effective ways to prevent pests from entering your home is to maintain cleanliness. Regularly sweep and mop your floors to eliminate crumbs, spills, and other food sources that may attract pests. Pay special attention to areas around appliances, cabinets, and baseboards where crumbs tend to accumulate.  The idea is to eliminate any food source that will attract bugs into your home.


Don’t Stack Wood Against the House: While firewood may be a necessity for chilly spring evenings, stacking it against your house provides an ideal hiding spot for pests such as termites, ants, and spiders. Instead, store firewood away from the house and off the ground to deter pests from making their way indoors.


Trim Trees and Bushes: Overgrown trees and bushes can serve as highways for pests to access your home. Trim back branches and foliage that overhang or touch your house, as they can provide a bridge for pests to enter through windows, vents, or cracks in the exterior.  Elm Trees that hover over your home are a major cause for Elm Seed Bugs!


Seal Cracks and Gaps: Inspect the exterior of your home for any cracks, gaps, or holes that may serve as entry points for pests. Seal them with caulk or weatherstripping to prevent pests from sneaking inside. Don’t forget to check around windows, doors, pipes, and utility lines for potential entryways.  These spots are basically bug highways!


Keep Food Containers Sealed: Pests are attracted to food sources, so it’s essential to store food items in airtight containers. This not only prevents pests from accessing food but also helps maintain its freshness. Additionally, avoid leaving pet food out overnight and promptly clean up any spills or crumbs.


Maintain a Clean Kitchen: The kitchen is a hotspot for pests due to the abundance of food crumbs and spills. Wipe down countertops, sweep floors, and wash dishes regularly to eliminate any food debris that may attract pests. Empty the trash frequently and keep garbage bins tightly sealed.
