With the weather starting to warm up, many of us are getting excited for spring! While we all get excited for this changing of the seasons in different ways, we here at Brown Pest Control would like to remind you that you are not the only ones getting revved up for spring- there are likely pests in or near your home that are looking forward to the season change, too. We want to help you with your pest control needs by staying ahead of the pests with some of these tips:
- Protect the Perimeter! One of the best things you can do when the weather starts to warm up is to have pest control experts like ours give your yard a precursory perimeter protection spray. This will help prevent any pests that try to get into your home from the get-go.
- Seal Up Cracks and Leaks! Pests love to squeeze in through the tiniest of cracks that you would never think they could fit through- just to prove you wrong! Going through your home and sealing up doorframes, windows, and other potential entrance points can be very beneficial. Fixing leaks and standing water is also essential, since many pests burrow through moist wood and also use standing water as a breeding ground.
- Think Like a Pest. Take a walk around your yard and think about what pests like. Are there wood piles? Lots of shrubs near your home? Is there yard debris you haven’t been able to clean up? Pests love all of these things and getting them taken care of sooner rather than later can help greatly down the line.
