Keep food sealed: In addition to keeping your kitchen nice and tidy, keeping your food sealed up can make it nearly impossible for pests to survive. Bags and twist ties aren’t enough, keeping food like cereal, rice, and other grains in air-tight containers. When you can, keep any opened containers in the fridge where pests can’t really survive long enough to eat.
Clean up your yard: Dead leaves are nature’s clutter. When the leaves fall, rake them up as fast as possible. Pests love to hide and roost inside these piles of leaves. Leaving them on your yard gives pests an entrance point to your home. Much like trimming back trees and shrubs, cleaning up your yard is more about keeping the pests farther away from your home. Mowing your lawn regularly also keeps pests away. Again, this all also helps keep your home look clean and inviting to humans, but not to pests!
Rinse Recyclables: Recycling is a great habit to get into, however it can also lead to pests! Empty soda cans, beer bottles, and other recyclables can provide a heap of free food for pests. You can limit this by washing out any cans and containers that might have residual food in them. It might seem like a hassle, but it will keep pests away from your home so that’s worth it right?
If you’ve got an infestation, it’s best to call a professional to clear them out. Call The Bug Guy, Pest Control OKC, today and de-infest your home! Call today at 405-973-5522!
