How To Prevent Pests From Entering Your Home This Fall

Posted on September 3rd, 2019 by Knockout Pest

The moment the weather gets colder, pests will be searching for warm shelters. This could be the reason why you have noticed an influx of pests in your home this season. Continue reading to find out how to keep pests out of your house this fall.

Seal Any Gaps

It is imperative for homeowners to seal any gaps they discover within the house. This goes for both large and small gaps; as many pests can squeeze through small openings. Seal these entrances shut with caulk or insulation to keep your home pest-free this season.

Put Leftover Food Into Storage Containers

In addition to escaping the cold, pests will also be in search of food. Pests will see easily accessible food items as an invitation to a formal dinner party! To prevent this from happening, be sure to put any leftover food away into sealed storage containers.

Keep Your Yard Clean

Leaves are bound to fall off of the trees this autumn. A large pile of leaves is the perfect place for a pest to set up shop. You can put an end to this by raking the leaves and keeping your yard clean on a regular basis.
