Pest Control Tip of the Month - Preventative Barrier Around Your Home to Keep Pests Away

It’s well known that homeowners can take a variety of steps to secure their home from pests. However, moisture locked within homes is a particularly important issue to keep in mind, namely because it attracts a variety of pests. During the winter months, it’s imperative to keep your home dry and moisture-free, especially the kitchen and any bathrooms. To achieve this, it would be wise to prepare a seasonal plan for securing your home from winter pests. Note that this is an ongoing process though, as one must remain vigilant in taking preventative action against pests despite the season.

Perhaps most importantly, one should pay close attention to the advice of pest technicians. When a pest expert visits a home, the owners must take note of important tips and advice for keeping their home free of pests. Taking note of this sort of advice applies not just to winters but to other seasons as well. It’s wise to ask pest technicians for notes, brochures or any other important resources that can be referred back to. Some important steps to prevent moisture issues include securing window gaps, doorways and other unseen gateways to the outside world. Owners must take care to seal off all gaps so that there are no hidden areas for pests to climb in through.
