3 Pest-Preventing Spring Cleaning Tips

Flowers are blooming, temperatures are rising and spring is coming! For many, the season is synonymous with one thing: spring cleaning. Follow our steps below to make sure your spring cleaning works don’t go to waste.

When in doubt – seal it!

Pests survive the same way that humans do. If they can’t get to food, they won’t live around your home. Make sure there are no cracks in your doors, windows or window screens for pests to sneak in. Also, be sure to lock up you and your four-legged pet pal’s food in sealed, airtight containers to keep safe from ants and “pantry pests”.

Get Rid of Water

Mosquitos are both annoying and dangerous. Eliminate their ability to breed by keeping your yard free of standing water.

Try a Dehumidifier

Dig out that dehumidifier you used last time the flu hit your household, and try it out in your basement. Basements tend to get damp in warmer months, attracting centipedes, termites, silverfish and more. Your dehumidifier will help remove some of the excess moisture, and hopefully your pests will follow.
