Aside from regular preventative pest control maintenance, there are plenty of things you can do around your home and property to limit invasive pests. More and more homeowners are turning to DIY pest control to help them save time and money. Our team here at Best Home & Property Service has come up with a list of pest control tips you can utilize at home.
Now this may seem self explanatory, but this means taking out the trash often, vacuuming up crumbs and spilled food, storing food properly, etc. This also means keeping the outside of your home clean by trimming back shrubs so they don’t hang over or touch your home, keeping your trash further away from your home, etc.
Whether you notice it or not, pests will try to wiggle their way into your home through the smallest cracks and crevices. It’s ideal to inspect and seal off your home in places where pests can enter. Try using weather stripping to seal cracks on doors and windows. These changes will also help keep your home insulated during the hot and cold months.
Keeping your home well ventilated will help deter pests away from your home since most pests are drawn to moisture. This includes the crawlspace underneath as well as around the outside of your home. Need help keeping moisture out? Try using a dehumidifier.
