Spring is now officially here, so you may begin to notice more pests peeking around your home. Insects and small mammals enjoy the warm weather just as much as we humans do! However, to keep your home from getting invaded by unwanted visitors, follow these simple steps for a pest-free home this spring!

Maintain regular upkeep of your outdoor areas – Trim back your trees and prune the bushes surrounding your house. Animals like squirrels and raccoons can get crafty and use tree branches to get onto your roof and into your attic. As well, do your best to seal and store your recycling bins, compost bins, and garbage bins away from your home. This will help keep the squirrels and raccoons away!

Give your kitchen a thorough cleaning – The likelihood of getting pests is greatly decreased when you have a clean kitchen. Keep your kitchen sink clear of dirty dishes and clear your counters of any leftover food. Remember to sweep your floors to eliminate any fallen crumbs. Don’t leave anything for pests to come looking for!
Control excess moisture around your home – Insects and rodents are always drawn to water. If you have any plumbing leaks, roof leaks, or gutter leaks, make sure to get those fixed up as soon as possible to avoid attracting rodents. Also, refrain from over-watering your lawn to cut down on excess moisture.
