The weather is starting to warm up just in time for spring. While that’s exciting for those of us who love the sunshine, it can also lead to unwanted guests – pests! Rising temperatures mean termites, mice, mosquitos, ants, spiders, and a bunch of other insects are ready to start being a nuisance. Have no fear, the team at PestNation is here with some tips to help you keep the pests at bay.
Inspect Your Home
First things first, give your home a good once-over inside and out. If there is a pest problem, you’ll want to locate the source or point of entry and the type of pest you’re dealing with right away. The longer it takes to discover the issue, the bigger the solution will need to be.
Tidy Your Lawn
Any leftover leaves or debris in your yard from the fall can become the perfect incubator for pests. Standing water is likely to turn into a mosquito breeding ground. Give your lawn a good cleaning to remove any potential pest hideouts.
Use Proper Storage
This may be obvious, but it’s worth saying. Pests need a food source, and what better place for them to find one than your own personal stockpile? Make sure that all of your foodstuffs are properly sealed up and put away to keep pests out. This includes your pet’s food. Additionally, take out your trash regularly and ensure that trash cans are closed tight.
Prevent Moisture Buildup
Springtime is beautiful, but it also brings along a lot of moisture. Pests will be on the lookout for water as a drinking source or simply because they thrive in damp environments. Check your gutters and clear them out if necessary. Double-check that water is being properly routed away from your home.
Begin Spring Cleaning
Lastly, it’s easy for things to clutter up through the winter months. Hop on the spring cleaning trend and clear out any unwanted items. The fewer nooks and crannies rodents have to hide in, the better.
