Pest Control Tips For Spring

1. Keep Plants and Mulch Away From the House
Make sure all your plants and mulch are at least 3 ft from the house. This small adjustment helps ward off rodents, pillbugs, earwigs, centipedes, and many insects that are attracted to flowers, leaves, and the moisture that mulch holds.

2. Tighten Seals on Doors and Windows
Pests find their way indoors through even the smallest spaces and cracks, entering a home through tiny gaps around plumbing pipes, window frames and through various crawl spaces. Properly fit screens to all windows, repair any torn screens and replace old weatherstripping for a better seal. For large holes or cracks, make sure to seal and caulk to help prevent mice, spiders and roaches from entering.

3. Eliminate Every Source of Standing Water
Cockroaches, flies and mosquitoes are often attracted to vessels of stagnant water. To prevent the accumulation of moisture, and thus the invitation of insects, repair roof leaks. Check for plumbing leaks, clear gutters of leaves and other debris regularly so that water does not accumulate as a drinking or breeding source for pests.

4. Keep Pet Food and Water Off of the Ground
Make sure to buy elevated pet bowls if possible. Even if you change your pet’s food and water bowls each morning to prevent stagnation, they act as a food source for rodents, ants and other insects and encourage them to remain nearby.

5. Clear Garages and Attics of All Types of Clutter
Creatures such as spiders and silverfish will often create nests in cluttered areas and cardboard boxes inside the home. To best ward off pests, reduce the number of cardboard boxes you keep and maintain all storage areas, ensuring they are kept organized and clean.
