How To Have A Pest-Free Thanksgiving

Posted on November 25th, 2020 by Knockout Pest

There are so many different ways to celebrate Thanksgiving. However, it is safe to say that none of these traditions involve pests! Below are some steps you can take to ensure that you and your family have a pest-free Thanksgiving.

Make Sure Your Windows & Doors Are Sealed

Are you the type of person who loves to hang a festive wreath on your front door and decorate your windows with Thanksgiving-themed decals? If so, this is also the perfect opportunity to make sure that your doors and windows are adequately sealed. This can help keep small insects from entering your home and making their presence known this holiday season. 

Clean The Kitchen

It goes without saying that your kitchen can get a little messy while you are cooking. Nonetheless, a kitchen that is filled with crumbs can be very enticing to hungry pests. That is why it is so important to keep your kitchen as clean as possible. 

Do Not Leave Leftovers Out

Having a large Thanksgiving feast can only mean one thing–there will be plenty of leftovers to enjoy once this holiday has come and gone! Be sure to store these leftovers in airtight containers. After all, leaving them out in the open can attract pests to your dining room. 

Do you want to make sure that pests do not intrude on your Thanksgiving meal? If you can relate, turn to the professionals here at Knockout Pest Control for all of your pest control needs. We can knockout pests and keep them down for the count!
