Pest Prevention Tips

Interior

  • Make sure all doors that lead outside are well-sealed. 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

  • 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 tightly.
  • 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.
