What You Can Do To Keep Pests Away From Your Thanksgiving Dinner

If you will be hosting Thanksgiving dinner at your house this year, you may be cooking for a lot of guests! Do not let an uninvited guest, such as a pest, ruin your meal. Below are some things you can do to keep pests away from your Thanksgiving dinner.

Clean Your Kitchen

A kitchen full of food scraps is like a buffet to a pest! You can keep pests at a distance by keeping your kitchen clean while you are preparing Thanksgiving dinner. Remember to store your Thanksgiving leftovers in airtight containers. 

Put Firewood Away From Your House

Firewood is very enticing to termites, ants, and cockroaches. You can keep these critters out of sight and out of mind by putting your firewood on an elevated surface on your property that is far away from your house. Firewood racks are perfect for homeowners who have a lot of wood.

Seal Openings

One of the easiest ways for pests to enter your house is through gaps or cracks on the exterior of the home. This can be remedied by sealing these openings with caulk. It is also a good idea to fix holes on screened doors and windows. 

We hope these tips help keep pests from intruding on your Thanksgiving dinner! If you have followed all of these steps and still have pests at your house, turn to Knockout Pest Control for assistance. We can knockout pests and keep them down for the count!
