Household pests can be a problem year round, but colder months are the most likely time for bugs and rodents to invade your home or business as they seek warmth and shelter.
The exterminators at Guarantee Pest Control, Inc. have been helping residents of Lexington, KY, prevent and exterminate pests for more than 60 years. As specialists in residential pest control, they can help homeowners prepare for cold weather by performing an inspection and making recommendations for routine pest control and extermination.
You might not have pests now, but mice and nuisance bugs are likely to find a way inside as the temperature drops. Residential pest control specialists like those at Guarantee Pest Control have the experience to know what parts of your home are most vulnerable, and they can advise you on how to pest-proof your house.
If you’re worried about pests such as roaches, mice, moths, centipedes, and spiders coming indoors this winter, get prepared with these tips:
- Clean Your Gutters: Spiders and other bugs tend to nest in debris found in gutters. Keeping gutters clean will remove any nests from which pests could migrate indoors once cold weather hits.
- Maintain Your Landscape: Rake and clear away leaves, and remove any debris near your home’s foundation. Rotting leaves are an invitation bugs can’t resist. Trim trees and bushes, and remove vines growing on or near your house; they can become a gateway into your home for insects.
- Fix Plumbing Leaks: Pests need water to survive. They are drawn to steady water sources, so repair any situations that create puddles inside or near your home.
- Keep Food And Trash Sealed: Don’t leave food sitting out, and clean dirty dishes as soon as possible. Keep trash receptacles covered so they don’t provide food for pests.
Pests can spread disease and harm your property, so it’s important to safeguard your home before temperatures begin to drop.
