How To Have A Pest-Free Holiday Season

Posted on December 4th, 2019 by Knockout Pest

Before you deck the halls with boughs of holly, make sure there aren’t any pests lurking in there! After all, finding pests in your home is the last thing you need when you are trying to spread holiday cheer. Below are some tips that can help you have a pest-free holiday season.

Inspect Greenery For Pests

Christmas trees and wreaths have become synonymous with the holiday season. However, pests such as ticks, ants, and spiders have been known to take shelter in greenery. Be sure to inspect Christmas trees and wreaths for pests prior to bringing them into your home.

Check Decorations For Pests

Holiday decorations are usually stored in basements, garages, and attics. Unfortunately, these are the most common places for pests to set up shop. It is important to be on the lookout for pests when unloading holiday decorations from their boxes.

Store Decorations In Plastic Containers

All good things must come to an end; including the holiday season. Once the holidays are over, remember to put your decorations into sealed plastic containers rather than cardboard boxes. That way, pests will not be able to gnaw their way in. 

Do not let pests prevent you from getting into the holiday spirit! Trust the professionals here at Knockout Pest Control to handle all of your pest control needs. We can knockout pests and keep them down for the count!
