How To Keep Pests Out Of Your Home This Winter

Posted on December 17th, 2020 by Knockout Pest

Due to the cold weather and the pandemic, people will be spending more time in their houses than ever before. No homeowner wants to discover unwanted critters right before the holiday season. Below are some suggestions you can follow to keep pests out of your home this winter.

Replace Damaged Roof Shingles

Since parts of your roof may be out of sight, it is also probably out of mind. However, damaged roof shingles provide the perfect opportunity for pests to enter your home. Replacing damaged roof shingles will help you avoid this scenario altogether.

Keep Garbage In A Sealed Receptacle

It is no secret that pests will eat food right out of the garbage can. Clearly, they are not picky eaters! To prevent pests from rummaging through your trash, remember to store garbage in a sealed receptacle. 

Check Packages For Pests

Are you the type of person who does their holiday shopping online? If so, you will have plenty of packages shipped to your front door. Check these boxes for insects before bringing them inside.
