What Should First Time Homeowners Do About Fall Pests?

When you invest in a new home, it’s important to take steps to prevent pests from getting inside it. During fall, you’ll need to be even more vigilant than usual. Some kinds of bugs and rodents try to get into homes before the weather gets cold. Keep in mind that our Freehold exterminators are here to help if you end up with a pest problem in your home. Use these tips to lower the risk of a pest infestation this fall.

• Keep the kitchen clean
Cockroaches, mice and other pests enter kitchens in search of food. Keeping your kitchen floor, counters and sink as clean as possible helps keep these critters away. Sweep up crumbs and don’t leave food out.

• Use garbage cans with tight lids
Taking out your kitchen trash each day can keep pests at bay, but make sure your garbage cans have lids that fit tightly. This makes it harder for these pests to get into them.

• Seal up cracks and other entryways
Seal up gaps, cracks and openings around pipes and vents on the outside of your home. Close up cracks near doors and windows as well. This prevents bugs and rodents from getting inside your home.
