How to Keep Pests Out
The weather is warming up here in Santa Clarita, and with that comes the pests. Soon you will start to see more termites, rodents, stinging insects, and birds around your home or business. What steps can you take to help prevent an infestation and keep pests out of your home?
Keep Your Home Clean and Free of Clutter
The most simple prevention step you can take to make sure that your home doesn’t become overflown with pests is simply to keep it clean. Most pests tend to steer towards messes that accumulate over time.
Making sure that you vacuum, take the trash out, and avoid dark, untidy areas on a regular basis can help with the prevention of pests. With that, you also want to make sure that you have all of your food covered and stored properly. Keeping your property clean and free of open food will make your residence less desirable to roaches, ants, and other pests that are always on the look out for a free meal.
Other Forms of Prevention
For the bigger pests, such as the birds and rodents, you may want to consider rodent traps or poison. The poison will help the animals perish more peacefully than the rodent traps will, but there is a downside. Poisons won’t exterminate the animal on the spot, so there is no telling whether or not it will be inside your house or business in the end. Rodent traps will undoubtedly have an identical outcome every single time, eliminating the pest on the spot. Don’t forget to check the trap periodically to make sure that you don’t have an animal decomposing.
