If you want to avoid pests this spring and summer take advantage of Spring and the nice weather that goes along with it to rid your home of unwanted pests to make your home less attractive to them. Let’s talk about your usual spring cleaning, you just may need to turn it up a notch and include an inspection of some areas of your home to include pest prevention.

You can start the process by deep cleaning your kitchen. Scrub down the floors, counters and inside the kitchen cabinets. Check your kitchen shelves or pantry, be sure to seal all of your food in airtight containers so that pests cannot gain access, lessening the chance of food contamination from pests. If you have domestic pets in your home, you should make sure their food is also secured in airtight storage bins. You should thoroughly vacuum all of your carpets and fabric furniture to remove a good number of insects or carcasses that may be there. Now is the time to wash out all of your trash cans too, to remove any crumbs or residue that may remain on the sides and bottoms. Sweep out all corners, ceilings and dark remote areas that pests enjoy to discourage nesting. It is also a good idea to inspect all of your pipes and plumbing for leaks and moisture that attract pests, fix any leaks and dry up moisture in those areas. Seal up cracks, crevices and holes found around your home including vents, doors and window frames to prevent pests from gaining access to your home.

If at any time during your spring cleaning you find any type of pests, their remnants or see any nests, you should contact a professional pest control company to assist you in getting rid of an infestation and to help you to avoid new pests from gaining access in the future.
