However, there are several steps you can take right now to prevent a re-infestation of those nasty and destructive creatures.
Keep Your Home Clean
You already know not to leave dirty dishes, leftover food, standing water, and piles of crumbs out overnight. There are some additional measures that you can take, though, to keep your home unattractive to nocturnal feeders like ants and roaches. Keep your trash can covered and clean it out often, along with pantries, shelving, or bins where you keep food. Have the floors and walls behind the stove and refrigerator cleaned often as well. Finally, remember not to leave leftover pet food out overnight either, because most pests, including mice, don’t discriminate between animal food and people food.
Seal Up Any Cracks
Ants, cockroaches, and termites can fit into incredibly small spaces, so sealing up even tiny cracks from the outside is key to keeping your home pest-free. Make sure the seals around your windows and doors are not broken, and check the seals or caulk around air conditioners, pipes, vents, and any other areas where a pest might be able to squeeze in. You can perform some indoor seal checks as well; check that the cracks around baseboards, molding, faucets, ceiling fans and lights, electrical outlets, and flues for woodstoves or furnaces are sealed up so pests have fewer hiding places.
Remove Outdoor Breeding Grounds
Most unwanted bugs, particularly termites, ants, and spiders, often breed just outside your house. Log piles, stacks of newspapers, and other debris make perfect homes for pests, so keep the area around your home and yard free from unneeded wood or piles of organic debris. If you have to have firewood nearby, bring only a small stack at a time, and tear down old wooden sheds or playhouses that may be housing bugs as well.
Get Your Home Inspected
If you suspect that your home has been invaded again, the best thing you can do is to have your home inspected by a professional. Pest Control Atlanta Contractor’s Best can tell you whether you have an infestation, how severe it is, and even where the pests’ colonies are likely to be. A very mild pest problem may be solved with the use of traps or bait, but Contractor’s Best will eliminate the problem without leaving you to wonder when the next roach or termite will invade.
