How To Have A Pest Free Home?

Spring is upon us, and it’s great to hear all the birds chirping and the buds starting to sprout. But this also happens to be prime pest season. Take this opportunity to do some spring cleaning of your home with a focus on spotting and eliminating potential pest problems.

Check out these top spring cleaning tips from our Scottsdale pest control technicians.

1. De-Clutter Your Home

Electrical boxes and wiring are the go-to places that pests search for when looking for warmth and shelter. Open electrical boxes and check for living or dead insects and pests. Don’t touch any wires if you see damage. Damaged wires can overload, short out or harm attached appliances – not to mention they can overheat and spark.

2. Watch Out For Wires

Electrical boxes and wiring are the go-to places that pests search for when looking for warmth and shelter. Open electrical boxes and check for living or dead insects and pests. Don’t touch any wires if you see damage. Damaged wires can overload, short out or harm attached appliances – not to mention they can overheat and spark.

Rodentss in particular will chew on electrical cords to sharpen their teeth, breaking through the plastic coating and exposing the wire. This type of electrical damage is very dangerous because you usually don’t know it’s there until a fire starts. This is why pest prevention treatments from Mesa exterminators is a good idea.

3. Clean Up After Your Pets and Kids

Throughout the year, it’s easy to leave a big mess around your pets’ food areas and dishes. But now is the time to clean it all up and make a renewed promise to keep those areas clean. Pet food, birdseed and dry food stuffs make great snacks for pests. Keep those foods sealed tightly so no pests get inside. Likewise, hose down outdoor patios after having cookouts, and make sure your kids clean out their rooms every day of snack wrappers, plates and cups.

4. Seal Cracks and Gaps

Pests can get in through tiny gaps and cracks around your home, especially around windows, doors, roof lines and vents. It’s important to eliminate potential entry points into your home, but this practice will also help you reduce energy costs, prevent water damage, and ensure your property is more secure.

5. Fix Leaks

Moisture and standing water will attract pests such as mosquitoes, termites, and rodents. If you have any toys, patio furniture or pots outdoors that have collected standing water, empty them out and then put them away. Check for leaking faucets or pipes, and have them repaired right away. Keep your sinks and drains clean. Some insects can get into your home from the pipes, such as spiders, silverfish, and ants.

6. Clean Up Your Yard

Pests like to hide out in leaves, tree stumps, and plant waste. They also use overhanging tree branches to access your roof and attic. Be sure to rake up any leaves and plant debris, particularly under decks and porches. Trim trees and bushes and make sure you have at least three feet of clearance between vegetation and your home.
