Tri-County Pest Control Q&A: Seasonal Prevention
Hi folks and welcome to our latest edition of a Tri-County Pest Control Q&A. Today, we are going to answer
your question about how to be proactive about winterizing your home against pest invasion.
Q. What steps can I personally take to winterize my home/property against pets?
A. We recommend you take the following preventative measures:
- Examine the conditions of your roof, walls and landscaping to look for signs of rodent droppings.
- Ice and snow can create leaning tree branches. Make sure none of them are leaning onto your roof or exterior walls. This can create a ‘highway’ for pests to enter your home.
- Make sure any firewood or chopped wood is still away from your home.
- Try and sweep or shovel away any standing water that may have been created from melting ice or snow. Standing water is a breeding ground for all sorts of pests.
- Check for cracks in walls, foundations, windows or doorways. These are readily simple entrances for pests into your home.
If you find there has been an invasion, or upon inspection you locate any pest droppings, contact us immediately and we will come to your property to eradicate the issue before there is any more damage.
