What Can I Do To Discourage Pests?

Although making your home unattractive and inaccessible to pests is not easy, it’s worth the trouble. You probably already know that a mouse can squeeze through an opening only the size of a dime and that insects require even less of an opening to get in. However, it’s a good idea to do all you can to make it more difficult for cockroaches and all other kinds of pests to gain access to your home. Here are some good tips:

  • Carefully inspect the exterior of your home for any cracks and openings, no matter how small. Seal them.
  • Check all windows and doors for even tiny openings that could admit pests. Install tight-fitting screens and weather stripping.
  • Inspect your entire home for broken windows, damaged sills or siding and foundation cracks. Repair as needed
  • Don’t forget to check all openings around pipes and venting. Seal or screen over any gaps.
  • Inspect your flashing. Repair if needed.
  • Don’t leave uncovered food, including pet food, sitting out unattended. Put away uneaten food in between your pet’s meals.
  • Keep your trash cans covered with snug metal lids.
  • Do you have a compost container? Elevate it at least a foot off the ground to make it a less welcoming food source to pests.
  • If you have fruit or nut trees in your yard, remember that pests of all kinds like fallen fruit and nuts. Pick up under the tree often.
  • Check for items stored in your garage such as lawn seed, tulip bulbs and bone meal. These can attract pests. Place such items in pest-proof containers.
  • Check around your home’s foundation. Remove ivy, trim shrubs, elevate firewood and keep bushes away.

How Dangerous Are Cockroaches?

Cockroaches’ saliva, feces and shed body parts are allergens. Worse, these particles can become airborne and trigger reactions for susceptible people. Cockroaches pose a danger for people with asthma, particularly children. In addition, roaches are a disease vector for many food-borne pathogens. There’s a reason nobody wants these pests in their home!

Does Poor Housekeeping Cause Roaches?

It is possible for even the cleanest and most sanitary of houses to suffer a cockroach infestation. But even so, good housekeeping helps. Remember, however, that not every factor is within your control. If your home is near a wooded area, for example, you’re more susceptible to infestations. Your neighbors can play a part as well. If you live in an apartment or condominium – or if your house is close to a neighbor’s house – your neighbor’s infestation could easily become your problem.
