The key to protecting your home is finding out what pests you need to worry about and taking proactive steps to keep them under control.

 

Tips on How to Keep the Critters Under Control

 

Trim Back Trees

 

Prevent pests from using tree branches as a bridge to your home by cutting back any limbs that overhang or touch your roof.

 

Eliminate Entry Points

 

Repair damaged screens, seal up exterior holes and fill hiding places, such as baseboards and cabinet edges.

 

Maintain the Kitchen

 

Keep your kitchen and eating spaces clean and free of leftover food or crumbs. It's also a good idea to store food in sealed containers and secure garbage in locked bins away from the house.

 

Gutters and Downspouts

 

Keep gutters and downspouts clear of leaves and debris to eliminate a potential breeding ground for mosquitoes.

 

Inspect Attics and Basements

 

Check attics, basements, garages and crawl spaces for signs of pests, including droppings, nesting materials and damage.

 

Fix Leaks

 

Don't put off fixing minor leaks; destructive pests, like termites and carpenter ants, are attracted to rotting wood.

 

Remove Nesting Sites

 

Regularly inspect your home and yard for signs of pests and promptly address any nesting sites you find.
