How To Prevent Pests From Entering Your Home This Spring

Posted on March 18th, 2020 by Knockout Pest

It is nice to spend time in the great outdoors in the springtime. Once it is time to go back inside, make sure you do not allow any pests to come with you! Below are some tips that can help prevent pests from entering your home this season.

Replace Decomposing Wood

Do you have any rotting wood on the exterior of your home? If the answer is yes, be sure to replace it. After all, certain insects such as termites and carpenter ants love to chomp on decaying wood.

Repair Broken Window Screens

The spring is a great time of year to make necessary repairs to anything that is broken in your house. With that being said, remember to repair broken window screens. It will be much harder for pests to enter your home if all of the window screens are sealed shut. 

Eliminate Moisture Sites

It is no secret that pests are drawn to water. That is why it is so important to lead water away from your home with gutters and downspouts. This can help ensure that your house is free of any moisture sites.
