For Pests, Prevention Is Key

After our pest control team has rid your home of an infestation, it’s still important to implement certain tactics that will ensure pests stay away. There are a variety of things a homeowner can do to prevent infestations from occurring, whether it’s ants, mice, spiders, or wasps.

Here are a few tips to prevent infestations in between inspections:

Keep Food Contained

Mice, ants, cockroaches, and other pests will eat just about anything. So if there are crumbs left on the floor or food sitting out on the counter or table, there’s a good chance that pests will find it. For any foods that don’t need to be kept in the fridge, be sure to keep it tightly sealed in Tupperware. Even food hidden inside cupboards can be reached if it’s not properly stored away. It’s also a good idea to avoid leaving pet food out overnight, as it can also attract a variety of pests.

Protect Outside Trash

This may be obvious, but there are plenty of rodents outside that would love to get into your trash, including squirrels, cockroaches, and rats. Always make sure your trash can has a lid that is tightly latched to the can. You may also want to consider attaching the trash bin to another sturdy object like a post in the ground or a fence. This will prevent any larger rodents from being able to push it over.

Check For Leaks

It’s not just spiders or ants that can find a way into your home through small spaces. Mice are very capable of squeezing through small holes. Our pest control technicians will look for any plumbing leaks or gaps around pipes during our inspection, but after we leave, you can also do a regular inspection to make sure there aren’t any gaps for pests or rodents to sneak into.

Keep Landscaping Clean

Try to keep any woodpiles away from the home’s foundation, which could make a great place for pests to make nests in. In general, try to keep trees and bushes away from the foundation. Try to avoid letting water accumulate or pool, which pests will be attracted to.

Inspect Windows and Doors

If your home has older or drafty windows, it’s a sign that there are places for small pests to sneak into. If possible, add some extra caulking around the edges to keep bugs outside. Broken screen doors are also an opportunity for bugs or pests to find a way inside.

The important thing to recognize is that pests and rodents are always looking for food, water, and somewhere warm to live. It can be especially challenging during the Massachusetts winters to keep pests out, but diligent pest control can help protect your home from infestations.
