Below are some tips and guidelines on staying pest free:

  • Tip #1: Make sure to seal all cracks in the property’s exterior to effectively keep out ants, spiders, cockroaches, and other pests.
  • Tip #2: In addition to sealing the outside, seal all doors and windows with weather stripping and tight fitting screens.
  • Tip #3: Put away food or cover until you are ready to store it. Food that remains opened is a breeding ground for bacteria and a landing place for pests.
  • Tip #4: Pests can easily enter dresser drawers to nest in clothing and bedding. Consider storing these items in plastic containers to protect against infiltration by pests.
  • Tip #5: Ventilate the attic and crawl spaces adequately to discourage nesting of unwanted pests. Proper ventilation creates an environment that is not supportive of cockroaches and other pests.
  • Tip #6: Pet food is also a major attraction point for a variety of different types of pests. Never leave pet food to sit out for long periods of time whether indoors or outdoors.
  • Tip #7: Rodents and other pests hide out amongst rocks and debris surrounding the home. Remove these to deter pests from hiding out on your property.
