At Pest Control South Side we offer professional humane pest control services. Here are a few pest-proofing tips you can try in your home or business to help keep pests out.
Remove Food Waste
Removing food waste is crucial in keeping pests out and pest-proofing your property. The most common reason your property will be invaded by pests is if there is an easy food source available. That means if you are leaving food crumbs and scraps out you are essentially sending out a beacon to all of the pests in your area, including ants, cockroaches and spiders. Try to keep your home or business clean from food scraps to try and avoid pest infestations.
Seal Gaps and Cracks
Even if your home has excess food scraps and crumbs lying around, the pests will still need a way to get into your home. The most common culprit for this is through gaps and cracks in your home. Be sure to have a thorough look throughout your home to check for any obvious entry points for pests. Sealing these up is a great idea if you are looking to pest-proof your property.
Keep Your Home Clean
Pests love entering messy homes they provide them with plenty of safe places to hide and live. If your home is messy you are increasing the chances of having ants, cockroaches, spiders and other pests invade your property. Try to keep your home as clean as possible to pest-proof it from potential pest invaders.
