Food is a basic necessity and we need it every day. It’s also normal to have some food leftovers in the kitchen but if you don’t properly store them or dispose of them, food can attract pests. Good eating and cleaning habits can prevent pest infestation. If your home is already infested with pests though, we recommend calling an exterminator in Anne Arundel County to completely eliminate pests.
How to Prevent Pest Infestation in Your Kitchen
Mice, rats, ants, cockroaches, insects and birds are attracted to food leftovers. You can prevent an infestation if you know how to secure your food. If you have a garbage disposal, we recommend you use it to properly dispose of food leftovers you no longer want to consume.
Make sure food and other ingredients are stored in their proper containers. Fruits must be stored in the fridge and sweets must be placed in airtight containers (to avoid ants). Make it a habit to always clean as you go. Wipe down the counters and never leave your glasses or plates in the sink. You can either wash them right away or place them in the dishwasher.
If there are spills, wipe them immediately and no food should be out in the open. Keep the trash covered and make sure you also seal up all cracks and holes. Check the windows and doors for any signs of leaks or cracks.
