CLEAN HARD-TO-REACH AREAS

Insects love to inhabit secluded areas in your home, oftentimes because that is where crumbs collect. It is important to remember to clean the hard-to-reach areas as often as you clean everywhere else. We usually don’t think to clean under the couch, behind the fridge, or down below inside storage cabinets. Doing so can help to prevent any future bug issues.

KEEP YOUR FOOD PROPERLY SEALED AND STORED

Insects can and will chew through materials such as plastic bags and cardboard. If you live in an area that is especially prone to bugs like roaches, we recommend that you consider storing your food in a hard plastic container. This will deter the little critters from trying to get inside of your pantry items, further protecting your home from an infestation.

SEAL CRACKS THAT LEAD TO OUTSIDE

A lot of homeowners do not realize how often cracks in the foundation of their homes can occur. Usually, this happens to homes with basements, but all homes can fall victim. We recommend that homeowners look for cracks as often as possible and if they find one to seal it up. Bugs like ants and termites have been known to sneak in through cracks that lead to the outside.

MAINTAIN YOUR TRASH

Lastly, we simply recommend maintaining your trash. Regularly dispose of food waste and kitchen trash, and keep your outdoor trash cans at a fair distance away from your house.

With all of these steps taken, you will be well on your way to preventing an infestation from happening in your home. But we know that sometimes there are instances that are out of your control, and in that case, we are here to help. Say goodbye to pests. Call us today!
