Winter pest control is important as pests tend to look for warm and safe places to shelter during the winter. Unfortunately, our homes and offices provide the perfect environment that help many of these pests to continue thriving. According to the National Pest Management Association, it is estimated that more than 21 million rodents alone invade U.S. homes in winter. Some pests can bring a variety of dangerous diseases in your home. Pests and rodents can also destroy buildings or pose serious safety hazards. Having a few important tips for winter pest control is the easiest way to keep the unwelcome pests and rodents out of your home.
Winter Pest Control Tips
Home maintenance is a vital part in defending your house against pests. There are some simple tasks you can do in and around your home to keep the pests away:
- Inspect your home and seal up holes, cracks, and other problematic areas.
- Clean and remove clutter in and around your property. Mice love to hide and nest in cluttered areas.
- Keep your gutters clean and eliminate standing water.
- Make sure all trees and overhanging branches are away from the house so that rodents don’t use them as avenues to gain entry into your home.
- Store food in air-tight containers to not give pests, rodents and insects access.
