Make Sure Your House Is Clean and Dry
- Many pests are drawn to food and water, so begin by making your property less attractive to pests
- Keep your bathroom and kitchen as dry as you can. Repair leaky sinks & pipes and don’t let water gather in any one area.
- Keep ripe fruit in the fridge.
- If you own an animal, groom it regularly clean it’s bedding as often as you can. Be certain to vacuum floors, rugs and upholstery that your pet interacts with on a regular basis
Seal Entryways and Doorways
- Keep new pests out by ensuring possibly entry points are sealed off.
- Use silicone to fill any gaps and cracks in floorboards, mouldings, pantries, pipes, sinks, showers and wall outputs.
- Fix holes in any existing screens. The average mouse found in homes can squeeze through a hole that is no bigger than a small coin
- Keep anything that a pest could use as a ladder into an opening away from your house
