Warmer weather is just around the corner. But with fresh grass and blooming flowers, springtime also means pests, pests, pests. Regular pest control will keep ants, cockroaches, and other spring pests from invading your home.

4 Easy Ways to Pest-Proof Your Home

  1. crumbs on cutting boardPut away the buffet. Food debris attracts pests to your home. Stop temptation in its tracks by cleaning kitchen counters after cooking. Take the garbage to the curb every night. Go through the pantry and make sure that all loose food is stored in an airtight container to prevent pests from getting into the food.
  2. Seal entry points. Bugs can slip through the smallest cracks. Store small holes and cracks with low-VOC silicone caulk, carefully going over areas near doors and windows to make sure all holes are sealed.
  3. Spring clean the house. How many pests are making a nest in your mess? It could be too many to count. Take a few minutes at the end of each day to sort through closets, cabinets, and storage areas. Get rid of any unnecessary junk during spring cleaning, or it may wind up housing pests over the summer.
  4. Fix your faucets. Food isn’t the only thing drawing pests into your home. Water draws them indoors as well. Fixing leaks and removing standing water is an effective way to make your home less appealing to pests.
