FALL IS NEAR IN THE LAS VEGAS VALLEY LEADING TO PESTS MOVING INDOORS

Bugs and other pests start looking for indoor shelter once the temperatures outside drop.  They will look for any way to escape the cold so it is important to check the outside of your home for any ways these pests can move in with you.

The following are some tasks you can do to eliminate pests from entering your home:

  • Inspect the outside of your home for entry points – like near utility pipes and cracks near the foundation. If you find a crack – seal it up with a silicone based caulk.  Also use steel wool to fill larger holes.
  • Trim landscaping – if you have trees that touch your home trim them back.
  • Clean out leaves and other debris from gutters to prevent standing water.
  • Replace weather stripping or screen windows that might be cracked.
  • Keep firewood at least 20 feet away from the house.
  • Check to see if there are any openings under the doors that lead into your home – if so invest in some weather stripping to block entry.
  • Dispose garbage regularly in a sealed trash bin.
  • Keep kitchen clean – wash down countertops and sweep floor to avoid crumbs.
  • Store food in sealed containers and keep fresh fruit in the refrigerator.
  • Vacuum floors once a week.
  • Routinely check under sinks for areas of moisture – fix all leaks.

 

If you do find an infestation you should call a licensed professional pest management company to evaluate and treat the problem.
