Pest-Free Home in 2024

One resolution you can make for 2024 is to have a trusted pest control company in Phoenix in your back pocket in case you need one. Pests aren’t going anywhere, and you want to be prepared when they make an appearance. It’s more important than ever to have a plan in place for pest control to save hassle, frustration and money throughout the coming year.

Check out these tips for homeowners who want to keep their house pest-free all year long.

  • Properly Store Holiday Decorations
    Once the holidays are done with, now it’s time to take all the decorations down. This part is important. Don’t just throw them all in an old cardboard box for the off-season. Instead, invest in a set of durable plastic bins with locking lids that form a tight seal so pests don’t nest in your décor. You don’t want to come upon a surprise infestation when it comes time to decorate next year!
  • Keep Your House Clean
    Food attracts pests. It’s just a fact. Keeping the whole home clean is essential, but pay particular attention to the kitchen. Be sure to wipe down the counters after every meal or snack, wipe down the tables, vacuum or sweep crumbs, dispose of garbage every day, dispose of expired items in your pantry every so often, and store human and pet food in airtight containers.
  • Seal Gaps
    Pests get in through the tiniest of cracks, so take a walk around the exterior of your home to spot and seal gaps. Look closely at areas where utilities and pipes enter the home. Pick up some door sweeps to keep drafts at bay and seal that annoying gap between the door and the floor. This will keep insects from getting in.
  • Store Firewood Properly
    Pests, such as termites, will nest in woodpiles for protection, food and warmth. Don’t stack firewood right up against your home; in fact, don’t put it closer than 20 feet from the house. When gathering wood from outside to bring inside, first brush it off to prevent pests from gaining entry to your home that way.
  • Clean Up the Yard
    Take a walk around the yard and remove dead bushes, fallen leaves, and branches as you go so pests don’t hibernate in there for the winter. Scoop debris from your gutters to keep pests from making a home there, as well as to ensure the free flow of water and prevent ice dams from forming.

It’s easier to avoid seasonal pests when you have a plan and strategy in place ahead of time regarding pest control. Think carefully about how you are unwittingly attracting pests into your home. For 2024, make a resolution to keep those pests outside where they belong!
