Pest Control OKC has some more tips for pest-proofing
Pest Control OKC is back with some more tips to help pest-proof your home!
Eliminate Moisture: One thing to keep in mind is that most insects need a certain amount of humidity to survive. If you can keep the air drier, you can make it very hard for certain pests to live in your home. Any amount of moisture can be enough for these insects. Even something as minor as condensation on pipes is enough for these pests. Fix any plumbing problems and leaks, no matter how minor, quickly to keep these pests at bay.
Prune Trees and Shrubs: You may not think about trees and shrubs as being a potential access point for pests. However, if these plants are touching your home, they can act as a highway for pests to get to you home easily. It doesn’t make a hole for these pests to go through, but it gives these pests more complete access to your home. Raising the chances that they find a nook or cranny to crawl into. Keeping your trees and shrubs trimmed back so they don’t touch your house is an effective way to keep them from letting pests onto your home.
Scrub your trash bins: Even if you keep your trash in plastic bags, they can still spill out and stain your trash bins. Pests can survive on these trace amount of food and waste meaning trash bins are one of the biggest pest attractors. Cleaning your trash bins several times a year will help ensure pests don’t have a tasty cocktail of trashy leftovers to feast on. Bleach will be enough to clean out your outdoor bins. Additionally, this will also limit smells coming from your bins!
