Boise Pest Control Prevention Tips:
- Cleanliness – Most pests are attracted to filth and clutter. Regular cleaning will take away their potential homes, food and hiding places. Plus, you’re more likely to notice a potential infestation quicker if you’re regularly cleaning your home. The faster you find an infestation, the easier it will be to take care of it. In addition, make sure that you keep food stored in sealed containers, keep your garbage covered and take it out regularly. It’s also important to keep your property free from piles of debris such as wood, lawn clipping and leaves.
- Entry Points – Most pests enter your home using one of several common access points. Inspect your home around windows, doors, and baseboards, and seal up any cracks that could be potential entry points.
- Water Sources – All pests need some source of water to survive. Some only need humidity, while others need standing water for breeding. It’s important to monitor and control the water on your property. First, make sure you don’t have any areas of standing water that could become potential breeding sites. Also, if you have areas inside your home prone to humidity, use a dehumidifier. Last, make sure all of your drains and gutters are working properly.
