Pest Prevention in Fall
Fall is a favorite time of the year for many with its crisp weather and spectacular foliage. But this change in season is also a peak time for pests to seek refuge indoors looking for warm, dry places to spend the winter. Smaller pests like spiders, cockroaches, stink bugs, and termites, and rodents like mice multiply fast leading to rapid infestation. Irrespective of whether large of small, pests can cause extensive property damage and a whole range of health issues. However, homeowners can take some simple preventive measures to pest-proof their homes this fall and keep them safe from pest infestation.
We recommend the following tips:
1. Seal cracks and crevices along the exterior of your home. Utility openings where pipes or wiring enter the house are common entry points and should be sealed with caulk or expandable foam.
2. Install door sweeps on all exterior doors. This can create a weatherproof seal at the bottom of the door and deter pests from crawling inside.
3. Repair or replace any damaged screens. Holes and gaps in screens entice pests into the house – following this simple measure can eliminate this possibility.
By implementing these pest prevention measures, you can keep your home safe from pesky invaders. However, despite following these tips, if you see telltale signs of pest infestation, it is best to contact a professional pest control company for help.
