Pest-proofing Your Home Before the Winter

November 16, 2022
As the temperature drops, rodents and pests just love to keep warm in the nooks and crannies of your home, just as much as you do. But here’s the good news! You can keep these pesky invaders at bay with these few simple tricks:

1. Hide all food.

When preparing food for the festivities, ensure that you aren’t providing a buffet for those pests. Keep all surfaces clean and free of crumbs and residue. Monitor your pantry or food storage areas for any holes in packages or food containers. Ensure they’re all sealed in containers to prevent easy access.

2. Seal all points of entry.

The best way to keep rodents and pests out of your house is to seal all points they can enter your home. Check windows and screens for any tears. Seal any cracks on your walls. Examine your piping system for gaps. Even the smallest tear, crack, or gap can easily be a point of entry for these adept pests.

3. Remove the clutter.

Clutter makes a really good hiding spot for these pests and rodents to thrive in. Especially in spaces, you don’t spend so much time in like storage spaces, basements, attics, garages, or extra rooms. A quick tidying up of these areas or organizing or getting rid of junk or boxes of junk will go a long way!

4. Don't forget the outside.

Before it gets too cold, trim the shrubs and branches that surround the area around your house. They could serve as bridges for these pests onto your roof or attic. Tidy up your lawn, remove weeds, and get rid of grass or leaf piles to ensure there is nowhere to hide.

5. Lastly, keep our contact information close.
