Horne's Pest Control Offers Fall Prep Tips For Homeowners

Martinez, United States - September 7, 2020 / Horne's Pest Control /

When temperatures drop, pests like ants, roaches, and spiders will begin to look for warmer places to settle into. They will slip through any cracks and crevices they can find to get into your warm and cozy house. As the cooler weather sets in, the staff from Horne's Pest Control wants to help homeowners keep their homes pest-free. Make sure your home doesn’t become their new home by following these simple steps. 

  1. Remove Fallen Leaves 

As the trees change and drop their leaves, the piles of dead plant matter make great homes for bugs and other critters. Cleaning up fallen leaves close to your home eliminates these hiding spots and encourages pests to look elsewhere for shelter.

  1. Seal Cracks and Crevices

Inspect the inside and outside of your home for any holes, crack, or crevices that may be used as entry points for pests. Using silicone caulk, seal any openings that you find. Even the smallest cracks can let in small pests like ants. Pay special attention to areas around windows and where plumbing pipes enter the house. 

  1. Check Doorsweeps and Windows

Doorsweeps are the flexible piece of rubber or plastic underneath exterior doors. Over time, these can crack, tear, or be chewed away by rodents. Make sure to check that doorsweeps are still intact, and replace if necessary. Repair or replace any torn window screens. 

  1. Screen Attic Vents and Chimneys

Many attic vents and chimneys have openings large enough for even squirrels and raccoons to squeeze through. It is important to add screen to these openings to prevent bugs and rodents from entering your home. 

  1. Trim Branches Away From Homes and Buildings

Keep branches and shrubs trimmed away from your home, shed or other buildings. Overhanging limbs can become an ant highway directly into your kitchen. Cutting off this access makes it more difficult for pests to invade your home.

Even after following these steps, pests still may be able to enter your home. If you notice pests in your home or business, you should enlist the help of a professional pest control company.
