Improve Your Chances of Pest Prevention with a Few Tips from Your Local Exterminator

With his typical wit and wisdom, Benjamin Franklin once said, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Use these helpful tips from your local exterminator to prevent bugs, rodents, and other pests from invading your home.

1. As with all living creatures, ants and other pests require regular sources of food and water. Cut off their supply by eliminating any food and water that’s out in the open and easily accessible.

2.Creepy-crawlies like spiders look for dark, out-of-the-way nooks and crannies where they can remain undetected. Do a thorough cleaning of your home, focusing on clutter as well as corners of rooms where spiders are likely to be found.

3. No one wants to see cockroaches skittering across the floor. During cleaning, check warm and humid spots behind kitchen appliances where cockroaches feel at home.

4. Keep countertops and other surfaces wiped down. Any food or liquid spills should be cleaned up promptly.

5. Water is essential to sustain all forms of life. Check pipes and faucets regularly and repair any leaks immediately.

6. Don’t leave any trash out in the open. Make sure all garbage cans, waste baskets, and trash bags are tightly sealed.

7. Never leave dirty dishes sitting out. Load them in the dishwasher or wash them in the sink.

8. Take advantage of nice spring weather to do some preventive yard maintenance. Be sure that plants, bushes, and trees are trimmed back so they’re not touching your home’s exterior. This is a common method for pests to find their way inside.
