As we transition into fall, humans aren’t the only ones that change their routine as the cold weather comes around – pests do it! While many homeowners may think all animals start hibernating this time of year, many pests are looking to make their way into the nooks and crannies of your home to survive the winter. That’s why our team at Best Home and Property Service is here to tell you the best pest-proofing tips to help protect your home this fall!
Before you take decorations down for the holidays, make sure you give each storage container a thorough inspection for any signs that pests have been or could’ve been there.
If you have any open food laying out (even dog or cat food that’s been sitting out for a while) it’s best to clean it up or properly store it and put it away. Crumbs and trash that smells like food can be attractive to pests looking for a meal.
By making sure all the cracks and crevices in your home are sealed will not only help keep pests out but the cold air too! Use caulk or weather stripping to help seal off any cracks around the inside and outside of your home for extra protection.
A dry and well-vented crawl space can help keep your home pest-free this fall. Since moisture is a major attraction to all pests, our team can help you encapsulate your crawl space with our waterproof and moisture control installation.
Overall, these are just a few tips to help protect your home against any pests this fall. If you or someone you know is dealing with a pest problem, our team is ready to help! Don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns!
