How To Prevent Pest Infestations At Home During The Pandemic

Posted on August 5th, 2020 by Knockout Pest

Due to the pandemic, people are spending more time at home than ever before. The last thing a homeowner should be dealing with right now is a pest infestation. Continue reading to uncover new ways to prevent pest infestations at home in these unprecedented times.

Inspect Packages

Shopping for items online is a great way to get what you need without going to the store. However, packages can bring unwanted critters into your home. To prevent this from happening, remember to check packages for pests and throw out cardboard boxes as soon as possible. 

Check Grocery Bags

Another way for pests to sneak into your house is through your grocery bags. Small pests, such as ants, could be hiding behind your groceries. Be sure to inspect all of your groceries before putting them away in cupboards or the refrigerator. 

Do Not Leave Leftover Food Out

It is no surprise that pests will be on the hunt for food scraps. That being said, do not leave leftover food out in the kitchen or any other room in the house. Keeping food stored properly in airtight and sealed containers can deter pests from making your home their new residence. 

Do you have reason to believe that there is a pest infestation in your home? If you can relate, trust the professionals here at Knockout Pest Control to handle the situation. We can knockout pests and keep them down for the count!
