The holidays are a wonderful time of year, especially in Louisiana. The weather is finally cooler and the holiday decorations are dressing up neighborhoods with cheer. So, as you are decorating your home and putting up the lights and other decorations, don’t forget about uninvited guests of the pest variety. We want to help make sure you have a pest free Christmas this year. Check out our Terminix Pest Control Tips:
The most important tip we can give you about pest control is simply to leave it up to the professionals. Don’t wait until you have pests to take care of them. Try to prevent them. Regular pest control and termite inspects can help to ensure that you not only have a Pest Free Christmas, but year round as well. At Terminix, we offer a free consultation. Find out more – HERE.
Cleaning is very important when it comes to pests, especially in areas where food is located like the kitchen. Keep all the floors cleaned and wipe down all counters in the kitchen. If you have pets, pick up any leftover food in the evenings. Check out the 8 Pest Control Mistakes made by Homeowners – HERE.
Seal Windows & Doors
When it gets cold out there, the pests like to come inside where it is warmer. Don’t make it easy for them to get inside your home by leaving windows and door cracks open. Gaps under doors or holes in exterior walls are easy ways for pests to get inside. The good news is that when it is cold, it is easier to tell if there are openings by feeling the cold air coming inside. Take your time and seal up all of these openings.
Take Out The Trash
Starting with Thanksgiving, many of us have a lot more food in the house. This means the kitchen trash bin will also get filled a little more often. Make sure that you take out the trash regularly so that it does not attract roaches and other pests. Also, don’t forget to check and clean your dishwasher for food particles. Sometimes food gets stuck in the bottom of the dishwasher and it becomes a very loud dinner bell for pests.
Cookies Are For Santa
Make sure that all of the cookies are cleaned up after Santa, because pests may like cookies too.
