October 12, 2012By 0 Comments

Use the following tips to keep pests away from your home this Fall and Winter.

  • Seal cracks and crevices on the outside of the home using caulk and steel wool. Pay close attention where utility pipes enter the structure.
  • Install door sweeps and repair damaged screens.
  • Screen attic vents and openings to chimneys.
  • Store food in airtight containers and dispose of garbage regularly in sealed receptacles.
  • Replace loose mortar and weather stripping around the basement foundation and windows.
  • Eliminate all moisture sites, including leaking pipes and clogged drains.
  • Store firewood at least 20 feet away from the house; keep shrubbery well trimmed.
  • Inspect items such as boxes full of decorations and grocery bags before bringing them indoors.
