Keep 2020 pest-free using these tips
It’s time to start living a pest-free life. The following five tips can help you do just that in 2020.
1. Make sure your home is completely sealed.
A sealed home is a pest-free home. Many pests are quite small. They can fit into cracks in the foundation. They can somehow slip in under doors and through window frames. Don’t let pests get into your home in 2020.
The best way to keep the pests out is to ensure your home is as sealed as possible. All cracks should be filled. Windows and doors should be tight to the rest of your home. While a pain to get done, sealing your home will keep out most pests.
2. Pick up all the food.
Pests need food. If you deny them access to food, you will make your home much less attractive. Many pests don’t care what they eat. They will chow down on any food scraps you leave behind.
Make sure your kitchen is clean and tidy. Dishes should be done regularly, and food should be taken off the counter. All your food should be stored in sealed and sturdy containers. Not only does this keep everything neat, but it also keeps the pests out.
3. Fix water leaks.
Pests need water to survive as well. Leaky pipes or a wet basement are some of the biggest reasons pests choose your Omaha home. Invest in the upkeep of your water pipes. You should also make sure your home is water-proof. Without a ready source of water, pests will be forced to move on.
