The presence of pests in your home can make it seem uncomfortable or hinder your ability to invite friends and family over. Unfortunately, even the cleanest home could be subject to pest infestation as long as their basic requirements, food, and water, are available. Emtec Pest Control proudly offers preventative pest control services to keep your house from becoming the target of a pest infestation.
What Is Preventative Pest Control?
With the colder weather finally settling in, many insects, rodents and other creepy crawlies could be finding entry points into your home. Once inside they will typically begin building nests and, even worse, growing their numbers. With preventative pest control, you have the ability to manage and control the pests that are around your home and limit the chance of your structure becoming infested.
There are many steps that homeowners and business owners can take to ensure their home remains pest-free throughout the year. While no exclusion plan is air-tight, making it harder for pests to gain access to your home is crucial for maintaining a pest-free environment. Try these steps to limit the chances of becoming their next target:
- Limit Access – On the average home or business, there are likely several cracks in the foundation, windows, and doors that can be utilized by small pests. In many cases, this can be seen in areas that don’t typically get much attention, like under sinks and around the home’s piping. Locate and seal any small cracks that could be providing access to pests.
- Clean Regularly – Homes and businesses that are cluttered are more likely to be the target of pest infestations because they provide ample hiding spots and nesting materials. Cleaning should include actively taking out the trash and not allowing it to sit for extended periods. It is also important to remove unnecessary clutter such as magazines, papers or cardboard boxes.
- Store Foods Properly – If you already have pests, you likely are finding your pantry food half-eaten or with damaged packaging. To avoid this and cut off the food supply for pests, store foods in airtight containers or the refrigerator. Regularly cleaning dirty dishes and not allowing them to pile up will also limit the food available to pests in your home.
