How Can I Keep My House Pest Free?

As a seasoned pest control company serving Texas, our professionals have seen their fair share of pests. And they aren't shy about making themselves feel at home in your living space.

From notorious fire ants to stealthy cockroaches, the variety of bugs we deal with here is astonishing. Not only are they bothersome and unsanitary, but they can risk your health and home. But fear not fellow Texans! With the proper knowledge and some preventative action, you can ward off these unwelcome guests.

Maintain Cleanliness For A Pest Free Home

Insects are like tiny home invaders, always hunting for food and water. By keeping things clean, you can effectively cut off their supplies, making your house less appealing to them. Make sure to:

  • Wipe down your counters and stovetops regularly to avoid crumbs and spills.

  • Keep food in sealed containers. Don't forget pet food which can be an open invitation to pests.

  • Regularly remove the trash and ensure your garbage bins have tightly fitted lids.

Declutter Your Home

Clutter creates favorable conditions and hiding places for bugs and other larger pests to establish a homestead.

  • Check and clean rarely visited areas such as basements, attics, and garages.

  • Keep your yard and landscaping near your home clean. The presence of overgrown vegetation, piles of leaves, or stacked firewood near the house can be a prime spot for pests.

Seal Entry Points

Remember, insects can fit through the tiniest of gaps. So preventing their entry is a great way to keep them out.

  • Inspect your home for cracks and gaps, especially around doors and windows, and seal them promptly.

  • Install fine mesh screens on windows and vents.

  • For larger pests like rodents, consider installing door sweeps.

Regular Pest Inspections

Despite best efforts, sometimes pests find their way indoors. Regular pest inspections can nip these infestations in the bud before they become a problem.

  • Professional pest control services can identify and address infestations early on.

  • Even if your home is pest-free, a professional can provide valuable tips tailored to your home and local area.
