Keeping your house clean is very important. Your kitchen can be a very welcoming feast for pests if it is unkept. Make sure you clean up everytime you cook, eat, or do anything in the kitchen. You may be leaving food crumbs, spills, and other goodies that invite all kinds of pests. From rodents to roaches, they will all be attracted to food spills. So make sure the dishes are clean and washed, the counters are wiped, and the floor is sweeped and mopped.
The same goes with keeping things in order. The more areas that are dark and moist, can attract pests. So it is important to keep things orderly and clean. Yes this includes hard to reach places like the back of furniture or even under it. Make sure trash cans are closed with lids, especially if you throw food scraps and the likes in it. Garbage bins outside should always be closed and difficult to open by strays.
Trim The Greens
Make sure nearby trees and plants are properly trimmed. Avoid having branches and leaves stretching over into your home. This gives animals more ways to enter your home. This is especially true for squirrels, raccoons, and even rats. Avoid giving them another entry point into your home.
Seal The Gaps
Make sure your home is closed and secure. All holes and gaps in the roof, doors, and windows can be another entry point for all kinds of pests. Leave the pests outside your home by making sure your home is gap and hole free. You may even install screens for windows, or weather strips on the gaps in the door.
You should regularly inspect your homes for any pests. Infestation always starts in areas you do not easily see. Make sure it does not reach the point where it may be too late for you.
