Trim Around the Edge
Plants and trees create easy access to your home. Keep all trees, shrubs and plants away from your roof, eaves, sides and windows. Keep debris, mulch, woodpiles and scraps away from the foundation of your home.
Clean Up After Yourself
Immediately clean up food spills. Don’t leave dirty dishes out overnight. Regular vacuuming and cleaning decreases the likelihood of pest infestation. Change the vacuum bag frequently so it doesn’t become a breeding ground.
Take Care With How You Store Your Items
Items around the house, in attics, closets, garages and basements provide excellent housing for pests. If possible, store your items in plastic containers.
