As you withdraw to the warmth of indoor activities in your home for the fall and winter, pests are not far behind. Many insects and wildlife are still active during the cooler months, they just need to find food and shelter. Pests that commonly infest homes and businesses during the fall and winter include rodents, cockroaches, spiders, and ants. To keep pests outside where they belong, there are numerous preventative steps you can take to stop pest infestations in the future. Implementing exclusion and sanitation techniques can prevent pests from invading your home.
The first step to pest exclusion is to inspect the exterior of your home to ensure there are no easy entry points. Check for cracks in the foundation, holes around pipes and torn screens and seal off these openings. Next, cut back any foliage in the yard that is in contact with the house. In general, it is a good idea to keep any organic material a good distance from your home to prevent pests from using these things as a bridge to the house. Sanitation is also critical because it makes your home less appealing to invading pests. Taking out the trash frequently, keeping food sealed and properly stored and routinely cleaning can help to keep pests at bay.
