Ants, spiders, and centipedes, oh my! Winter is here, and with it come these unwanted guests trying to invade your home to seek shelter from the harsh weather. Once inside your home, these pests can multiply at a rapid rate. They can be a nuisance to you and your pets, they can ruin your food, and they can even do extensive damage to the interior of your home, costing you money!
Thankfully there are measures you can take to protect your home from these unwanted guests. Here are 4 things you can do right now to create a pest free home, and give you the peace of mind knowing you don’t have to worry about pests bothering you or your loved ones this winter (and beyond!)
Seal Doors and Windows
One of the easiest ways for pests to enter your home is through creases in your doors and windows. Inspect the interior and exterior of your doors and windows to ensure they are properly sealed and insulated. While inspecting the exterior of your home, also look for cracks in the foundation, and holes where pipes enter your home. These are easy access points for pests as well, so sealing them is a must.
Trim Trees and Shrubs
Another easy way for pests to enter your home is by tree/shrub branches that reach your home. These branches allow them to get onto your roof, find access into your home, and begin to cause problems. By trimming your trees and shrubs you are eliminating another access point for pests to get to your home. Also, as an added bonus you are improving their overall health and appearance, and encouraging growth come spring!
Keep It Clean
Loose trash outside your home will invite pests (and critters) to come near your home, which increases the probability of them ultimately entering your home. Make sure your garbage is sealed and secured in garbage bags, which are sealed and secured in garbage bins.
