Essential Pest Control Tips For New Homeowners

Congratulations on owning your first home. While many tasks that come with new homeownership may seem daunting, keeping your new home pest free is as simple as one, two, three. The best way to avoid insect infestations inside is to start outside. Eliminating insect habitats is a great start, so be sure the exterior perimeter of your home is of debris like wet leaves and wood, and keep bushes and branches trimmed away from the house. Additionally, seal any cracks and crevices that create a pathway for pests to migrate inside. They can infiltrate even the tiniest cracks.

Eliminate food sources that attract pests, dispose of uneaten foods promptly and take out the trash frequently. Also, be sure to keep floors swept or vacuumed, because what looks like a tiny crumb to us may look like a feast to ants, roaches and even rodents.

Standing water is an attractive breeding ground for many insects, especially mosquitoes. Reposition or eliminate items that collect water, such as decorative pots, furniture or children’s toys. Clean your gutters twice a year to keep them free of debris and leaves. Finally, use mulcher soil to fill in lower lying areas of your yard that seem to retain excess water.
