Cooler weather means outdoor pests move inside

Notes:

  • The reason is simple, they need somewhere warm and dry to shelter for the winter. Having food and water on hand makes it even more desirable.

Seal up the gaps

Notes:

  • You’ll notice a 4-inch hole in your wall or siding. But, you probably won’t notice a ¼ inch one, unless you’re specifically looking for it. Insects can get through the smallest of cracks and mice are known to fit through holes as small as ¼ inch!
  • Patrol the perimeter of your home, paying particular attention to gaps around windows and doors, the edge of your siding, and where your house meets the ground. If you find any gaps fill them sooner rather than later.

Cleaning it up

Notes:

  • Pests won’t just come through the walls, they’ll come through the door or window if you leave it open. If you’ve got children it can be hard to make sure the doors and windows are shut when they need to be.
  • But, in order for a pest to stay in your home, it needs food and water. If the food isn’t available there’s no reason or motivation for a pest to stay in your home. You can prevent them from getting access to food by:

    — Putting food away in sealed containers as soon as you’ve finished using it.

    — Washing dishes and countertops straight away.

    — Cleaning floors, including disinfecting, to remove all food traces.

    — Picking up pet food and water bowls after they’ve been used.

Check for leaks

Notes:

  • Take this a step further and check your home for damp spots or leaking pipes. Pay particular attention to the walls and ceilings as these will give away a leaking pipe or faulty roof.
  • This moisture is great for a whole array of pests, you need to get rid of it, that means fixing leaks and your roof
  • You can also make sure that soil or mulch is not against your home, this maintains moisture and gives pests a place to live. Of course, it’s right next to your home which may seem more inviting.
