What General Steps Can Help Discourage All Pests?

Making your home unattractive and inaccessible to pests is not easy. You probably know that a mouse can squeeze through an opening only the size of a dime. Insects, of course, require even less of an opening. However, it’s a good idea to do all you can to make it more difficult for pests of all types to gain access to your home. Try these tips:

  • Carefully inspect the exterior of your home for cracks and openings. Seal any you find.
  • Check all windows and doors for cracks that could admit pests. Use tight-fitting screens and weather stripping.
  • Inspect your house for broken windows, damaged sills or siding and foundation cracks. Fix as appropriate.
  • Also check your pipes and venting. Seal or screen over any gaps around pipes and venting.
  • Inspect your flashing. Install all new flashing, if needed, to keep mice and other pests from getting into your attic.
  • Never leave uncovered food, including pet food, sitting out unattended.
  • Cover your trash cans with snug, metal lids to keep pests of all kinds out.
  • If you have a compost container, elevate it at least 1 foot off the ground. This makes it a  less welcoming food source for rodents.
  • If you have fruit or nut trees, remember that fallen fruit or nuts attract pests. Clean up fallen fruits and nuts daily.
  • Check for items you might have in your garage, such as lawn seed, tulip bulbs and bone meal, that may draw pests. Place such items in pest-proof containers.
  • Look around your home’s foundation. Remove ivy, trim shrubs, elevate firewood and keep bushes away.

Do Cockroaches Pose Dangers?

Cockroaches are usually thought of as gross but not particularly dangerous. However, cockroaches produce allergens through their saliva, feces and shed body parts. Worse, such particles can become airborne and trigger reactions for susceptible people. Children and those with asthma can be particularly affected. Roaches are also a vector for many food-borne pathogens. You do not want these pests in your house!

Is A Roach Infestation A Sign Of Poor Housekeeping?

Even the cleanest and most sanitary home can suffer a cockroach infestation. Even so, good housekeeping plays a part in fighting infestations. It’s important that you keep in mind that not every factor is within your control. If your home is near a wooded area, for example, you’re more prone to an infestation. If you live in an apartment or condominium – or if your house is close to a neighbor’s house – a cockroach infestation in your neighbor’s house could easily spread to your home.
