Making New Year’s resolutions is a time-honored tradition that dates all the way back to the mythical Roman God, Janus, who had two faces – one facing forward and one backward. Much like we do today, the Romans would resolve to make the coming year better.
Today, however, the most common New Year’s resolutions revolve around getting healthier and saving more money. Ecola suggests a resolution that will help control pests in your home. While not the sexiest of resolutions, it’s true that a pest-maintained home will protect you from infestation-related health issues, make your home more enjoyable for your family, avert the high cost of damage caused by pests, and protect your largest financial investment.
Here are 5 simple things you can do to maintain pests in your home:
1. Declutter – Clutter provides pests with many places to hide out. One of the first steps toward rodent control, as well as ant and roach control, is to remove their food and nesting sources by cleaning out the pantry, attic, and basement of unwanted clutter while storing supplies in sealed containers.
2.Seal cracks around your home – Every home has unwanted openings and cracks in screens, weather stripping, and around doors and windows where pests can find their way into your home.
3.Maintain your backyard – Trim your bushes, eliminate standing water, keep the lawn mowed, and remove debris. You’ll not only eliminate pests but improve the beauty of your home.
4.Move firewood away from your house – While stacking the wood near your home is convenient, it is also a cozy place for spiders, ants, and termites to sit back and get transported right into your home by none other than you. Keep your firewood twenty feet from your home and shake logs off before bringing them inside.
5.Inspect your home – You are only a phone call away from having a skilled professional identify your pest risks and prevent pests from entering your home in the future.
