Ways To Pest-Proof Your House This Autumn

As the weather gets colder, you will not be the only one wanting to spend more time inside your house. Unfortunately, the cold can also motivate pests to seek a warmer environment and enter your home. Below are some ways to pest-proof your house this autumn.

Seal Openings With Caulk Or Steel Wool

When there are gaps or cracks on the exterior of your house, it makes your home more susceptible to pests. After all, that will only make it easier for them to get in. To prevent this from happening in your home, remember to seal these openings with caulk or steel wool. 

Do Not Leave Pet Food Out

To a pest, pet food is not off limits! When a pest discovers pet food, they will have no problem devouring it. That is why you should not leave pet food out for long periods of time. 

Reduce Excess Moisture In Your Home

Certain pests are drawn to the excess moisture that basements and attics are notorious for. That being said, be sure to keep your house ventilated and dry. You can accomplish this by having dehumidifiers in these areas.
