Tips to Pest-Free Your Home Before Going on a Winter Vacation
Clean Your Home Before You Leave
Never leave your house untidy before you step out. Dirt and messes can attract pests. Hence, it’s a must to clean your entire home thoroughly. Make sure you take out all the trashes. Also, pay attention to your yard. Remove tree limbs, shrubs from this space.
Pay Attention to Doors and Windows
Make sure all the doors of your home are closing all the way. If not, get them fixed as early as possible. If the doors are not closing completely, buy weather stripping to seal up. Focus on all the windows for the same reasons, especially on the screens. The screens facing inside may have small holes in between the gaps, which are sufficient for pest invasion.
Cracks and crevices around the door and windows, siding, foundations are the common way for the critters, such as rodents, spiders, cockroaches to sneak into a house. Hence, to prevent them from invading your home, seal all the possible cracks. Make sure you seal the utility opening where wires and pipes enter the foundation.
Keep Firewood Away from Your House
Piles of firewood can also be a shelter for several pests. Remember, pests love to feed on wood. By storing firewood in your home, you are offering wood-eating insects an endless meal. So, before you go out, keep firewoods away from your house.
