Suggestions for things you can do to prevent pest problems:

Interior Prevention Tips

  • Make sure all doors are well sealed that lead outside.  If you can see light around your door, it is not sealed and insects can enter.
  • Check for water leaks.  Seal gaps around plumbing pipes.  
  • Check the grout around your tub and toilets.
  • Don’t leave pet food out at night.

Exterior Prevention Tips

  • Repair or replace torn screens
  • Seal around soffits and vents 
  • Seal around conduits and pipes where they enter the home
  • Keep your gutters clean and make sure water is diverted away from the foundation
  • Keep roof and gutters clear of leaves and debris
  • Caulk around all windows
  • If you store your garbage outside, make sure the lid fits
  • Keep garage door closed and weather-strip along the base
  • Prune shrubs and trees so they do not touch the home
  • Store firewood away from the house
  • Adjust sprinklers so they do not spray the house nor puddle the foundation

Remember that feeding the birds is feeding wildlife and rodents also.
