Bugs and pests will take any chance to enter your home in search of shelter, especially during the holiday and winter season.
During the holiday’s pests including ants, spiders, and mice can typically find a way into your home through boxes of decorations. Seal any tightly when you put them away and if you get a real tree this year be sure to clean up regularly. Areas pests are typically found is inside:
- Christmas trees
- Any storage container
Throughout winter most pests enjoy hiding in hard to reach areas or parts of your home you typically wouldn’t look through like crawlspaces, attics, basements, and garages. Pests can chew through almost anything, including wiring, making DIY inspections a dangerous job. If you find chewed wire, droppings, or gnaw marks on boxes, it’s time to call a professional immediately.
A great way to prevent unwanted bugs from showing up is to store your decorations in tight plastic bins that have a seal. Pests will chew through any paper/plastic bags and cardboard boxes easily. Make sure you clean up your kitchen on a routine basis to avoid providing bugs or pests with a food source. An annual or bi-annual pest inspection and lawn treatment is also a great way to keep your home pest and stress free.
