Prevent Summer Pest Infestations With These Home Maintenance Tasks

Posted on July 23rd, 2021 by Knockout Pest

The summer is an ideal time of year to tackle the items on your home maintenance checklist. Furthermore, maintaining your house each season can keep your humble abode pest-free. Discover which maintenance tasks could prevent pest infestations in your home.

Eliminate Areas Of Standing Water

It is no surprise that pests are always on the lookout for water. That is why you should make every effort to eliminate any areas of standing water on your property. Pests will be less likely to stick around if they do not have access to a source of water.

Check The Basement & Crawl Space For Pests

When was the last time you took a good look at your basement or crawl space? If it has been a while, be sure to inspect these areas of your house for pests. After all, pests can easily take up shelter in the uninhabited spaces of your home without your knowledge. 

Keep An Eye Out For Wood-Destroying Insects

Last but certainly not least, homeowners should keep an eye out for wood-destroying insects on wooden structures. Termite damage can compromise the structural integrity of your home and repairing it can be costly. Dealing with a termite infestation in the early stages can save you money in the long run.
