Ready for FallDo you know how to keep pests out of your house this fall? The temperatures are dropping in the Mid-Atlantic which means that the pests around your home are starting to look for a warm place to spend the winter. Your home might be just the spot they need to survive the lower temperatures and diminishing food sources. Here are a few tips to help keep your home pest-free this fall:
- Take a stroll around the perimeter of your house to identify any cracks, gaps, holes or entry points in your foundation, walls and roof. This is how the pests will get inside and some well-placed caulk will help to keep pests out.
- Trim the landscaping around your house, especially trees and bushes that contact your roof. Keeping vegetation away from your home reduce access points for animals looking for a quick path inside.
- Set up your wood pile away from your house. This is a perfect cover for rodents and also attracts termites and other wood destroying insects. Many homeowners make the mistake of stacking the firewood next to the door for convenience, not expecting the trouble that comes with that decision.
- Check your gutters for leaves and clear them of any vegetation. Home Paramount’s gutter protection system can make this job a lot easier for you.
