The holiday season is upon us, and while it’s a time for joy and celebration, it’s also a time when pests like rodents, spiders, and cockroaches can find their way into your home. To help you keep these unwelcome guests at bay and ensure your home remains a happy, healthy space, we’ve put together some pest-prevention tips for the holiday season.
Keep your home clean and tidy.
Pests are attracted to clutter and food debris, so be sure to clean up any crumbs or spills immediately and store food in airtight containers. Don’t forget to take out the trash regularly and keep it in a can with a lid to avoid attracting wildlife.
Seal up any potential entry points.
Check your doors and windows for gaps and use weather stripping or silicone caulking to seal any openings. Make sure your screens are in good condition and repair any holes.
Inspect fresh greenery before bringing it inside.
Trees, garlands, and wreaths can harbor overwintering pests, so give it a good shake and inspect the branches for any signs of infestation.
