Plenty of people will be stocking their pantries in preparation for Thanksgiving. No one wants to come face-to-face with a pest when putting a can of cranberry sauce away! Continue reading to uncover tips that will keep pests out of your pantry this holiday season.
Check Grocery Bags For Pests
It is possible that you are unknowingly bringing pests into your home through grocery bags. To prevent this from occurring, remember to inspect your grocery bags for pests before unloading these groceries in your kitchen. Discard any open or damaged items because a pest may have contaminated it.
Store Food In Airtight Containers
Improper food storage will make it that much easier for pests to take a bite out of your holiday meal! Fortunately, you can avoid this by storing your food in glass or plastic airtight containers. That way, unwanted critters will be less likely to gnaw their way through these types of materials.
Keep Your Pantry Clean
You may think nothing of a few crumbs in your pantry. However, a few crumbs to a small pest is the equivalent of a five-course meal to them! If you spot any pests in your pantry, it is a good idea to empty it out completely and clean it with soap and water.
