The Bug Guy, Pest Control OKC, here with tips to pest proof your house!
Fall is fast approaching and all sorts of pests are looking to make a winter home in the crevices of your home. The Bug Guy, Pest Control OKC, is here with a few tips to keep them away.
1.) Don’t leave out food for long periods: Ants love the smell of food and they’re very good about following scents. Leaving food out for long periods of time can result in Ants and other pests noticing your home. They come in for the food and stay for the warmth. Scheduling an inspection before major holiday with The Bug Guy, Pest Control OKC, can help insure that those big dinners don’t attract unwanted guests.
2.) Seal food in containers: Putting all your food in sealed containers, like Tupperware and glass jars with tops, is very effective at keeping curious bugs away from your food. Bags and clothespins aren’t enough to keep bugs away, but sealing your food can help insure nothing gets in it and potentially infects it.
3.) Clean up yard and Garage: Bugs are attracted to more than just food. Wet soil, Mulch, and dead leaves can also attract Fall pests. Raking up dead leaves, cleaning up loose soil and mulch, and cleaning any clutter out of your garage can keep pests out of these areas. If pests aren’t showing up in your yard, they’re less likely to make it to your house!
Of course, there’s no way to 100% insure that you will keep pests out of your house. That’s why it’s important to schedule regular inspections with a professional pest control business like The Bug Guy, Pest Control OKC. Give us a call and schedule an inspection or treatment today.
