Wow, it is unbelievable that Thanksgiving is already just around the corner. It seems like just yesterday we were beginning all of our fun summer activities! Where did the time go? Now, as we turn our attention to fall, and the changing pest pressures, we have to react less to swarming mosquitoes and hornets' nests cropping up in every other corner, and instead turn our attention and focus on rodents, fleas and other pests that will start invading our Katy, Texas area homes. We may not get snow like the northern United States, but the temperature will still drop enough for pests to start feeling the difference in the weather. And, once they’ve noticed, they will begin to seek refuge in our homes where there is an abundance of food and warmth.
The holiday season will come and go so quickly, and you will want to make sure you do not have to worry about invading pests during that time. Here are 3 ways to ensure a pest-free holiday season in your Texas home:
Keep all rodents and other invading pests out of your home by sealing up all cracks and crevices that allow them entry into your home. This will include screens, vents, and soffits, as well as where wire, cable, and plumbing come into the home. This may sound either quite difficult or too simple, but is the number one way to protect your home from cold-weather invaders.
Keep cockroaches from invading your kitchen and pantry so they will not interfere with your holiday cooking and baking by keeping your food secure. Keep all foods in airtight containers with tight-fitting lids, clean up all food and drink messes right away, and take out the trash regularly.
Be diligent while traveling to avoid bed bugs, by inspecting sleeping accommodations for signs of bed bugs. Ask for a new room if you find signs of buds or shed exoskeletons, and keep your luggage, clothes and other bags off of the floor. Once you arrive back home, don’t forget to inspect all of your items for bugs, and wash everything in hot water right away.
