March 26, 2019

 

As the snow melts away and warmer weather moves in, we all spring into action, including those pesky, unwanted intruders!

 

If you’re looking for a way to prevent some of those intruders from entering your home, try hitting some or even ALL of our points on our Spring Ahead Cleaning Checklist below and have a happy and hopefully pest-free spring season.

 

Spring Checklist 

  • Check your roof (or hire a professional to check) for any leaks

  • Sweep up cobwebs and clean out nooks and crannies where spiders and other insects may dwell

  • Repair any screen damage before opening those windows and screen doors to let in that spring air (You probably don’t want to let insects in as well!)

  • Check for gaps around windows and doors

  • Clear and replace old mulch

  • Check for evidence of moisture or condensation around plumbing or windows

  • Make sure garbage containers are properly sealed and stored

  • Clear old shrubbery away from the home

  • Clean out gutters

  • Clean out pantries and around appliances in the kitchen to pick up any food debris

  • Check to make sure pet food is stored in sealed containers

  • Clean out any unneeded clutter in storage areas where pests can hide

  • Check your yard and eliminate sources of standing water

  • Keep moisture down by making use of a dehumidifier in your basement

  • Call your pest management company to inspect for any potential problems
