How Can I Discourage Pests?

First of all, it’s not easy. Mice can famously squeeze through an opening the size of a dime. Insects need even less of an opening. Still, it’s a good idea to do all you can to make it harder for pests of all types to gain access to the interior of your house. Here are some tips to try:

  • Inspect your home’s exterior for cracks and openings. Seal all you find.
  • Check all doors and windows 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 needed.
  • Don’t forget about your pipes and venting. Seal or screen over any gaps around pipes and venting.
  • How’s 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.
  • Cover your trash cans with snug, metal lids.
  • If you have a compost container, elevate it at least 1 foot off the ground so it’s a less welcoming food source for rodents.
  • Fallen fruit or nuts attract pests. Pick up around fruit trees during the season.
  • Consider what items you might have in your garage, such as lawn seed, tulip bulbs and bone meal. Place these items in rodent-proof containers.
  • Remove ivy, trim shrubs, elevate firewood and keep bushes away from the home’s foundation.

What Dangers Do Pests Pose?

Some pests, such as bedbugs and fleas, can bite. Fleas can make your pets miserable and in a severe infestation, they may also begin biting the humans in your house as well. Cockroaches can cause respiratory issues for sensitive individuals, including those with asthma. Rodents can spread disease. Termites and carpenter ants can cause structural damage to your house. You don’t want any of these creatures hanging around your home.

Is A Pest Infestation A Sign Of A Dirty House?

Even the best-kept homes can suffer an infestation. However, keeping your home clean is one strategy for helping to prevent and reduce such problems. Not every factor is within your control. For example, if your home is near a wooded area, you’re more prone to an infestation. Some pests are more prevalent at certain times of year. Furthermore, if you live in an apartment or condo – or if your house is close to a neighbor’s house – your neighbor’s infestation may spread to your home.
