Many homeowners look forward to springtime when they can take advantage of the warmer weather to clean their homes and property. Unfortunately, many pests become more active when spring arrives and actively begin invading homes.

However, there are preventive measures that you can take to help stop pest infestations from occurring on your property. We here at Preventive Pest Control have put together a list of spring pest control tips that can help keep your home pest free.

Seal Entryways Into Your Home

Pests will take advantage of any cracks, holes, openings in your home’s foundation. You can use caulk to fill these entries on the outside of your home. Check also for any cracks along any windows and doors.

If you don’t have a window screen, consider purchasing one this spring. Window screens can be a great way to deter pests.

Eliminate Standing Water

This is an especially important spring pest control tip, as standing water can attract a number of pests including:

  • Cockroaches
  • Mosquitos
  • Flies

Make sure that there is no standing water anywhere on your property as accumulated water can become a breeding ground for pests. Check for and repair any roof or plumbing leaks as soon as possible.

Clean Up Your Property

Any debris or trash on your property can be very attractive for pests. Ticks and ants especially love to hide in the dark, quiet places that piles of debris offer. You should remove all clutter from your deck, porch, and yard.

It is also a good idea to keep woodpiles and brush away from the sides of your home, as they are also a favored hiding place for pests such as termites.
