What is the Best Way to Prevent a Pest Infestation? Posted on February 1, 2018

Just like us, many sorts of pests want to be warm when it’s cold and dreary. This is also why pests try to make it into homes, even more so if there is food available. The problem is that rodents, flies, and cockroaches can carry diseases that make us sick. This is why it’s so important to keep those pests out of the house.

There is no one simply solution for preventing an infestation, but we wanted to provide a few ideas for preventing this type of situation.

Seal Foods
Ants enjoy getting into your leftovers and crumbs, so you need to make sure your food is sealed up and stored. Jars with rubber seals or plastic containers can keep pests away from your food.

Waste Cans
Trash can draw in different kinds of pests, so it’s important to be aware of what any debris in the home can be doing. It’s best to keep your trashcan fitted with a lid at all times. It’s also a good idea to keep outside trashcans away from the home.

Holes & Cracks
Any cracks and holes in floors or walls need to be filled in. Sealing those up can make it much more difficult for ants, roaches, and termites to get inside of your home. These cracks can be found in walls, vents, and even your foundation.

Leaking Pipes
Standing water is another item that can bring pests to your home. It’s an excellent idea to go through your home and fix any leaking appliances, faucets, and pipes. Getting rid of any contributor to bringing insects and other pest into the home is worth considering.

When you have clutter around your home, you’re actually making it easier for pests to come into your home. Many pests appreciate dark spaces, which are common among clutter. Take some time to clean up so you can make it harder for pests to settle in.

Pest Products
You can often find items like sticky paper, zappers, and sprays to handle any bugs that are already in your home. This allows you to ensure that the problem gets no worse than it may already be.
