PEST PREVENTION TIPS IN LAS VEGAS

 

The Las Vegas Valley is in the middle of spring. From Summerlin to Henderson spring means pests will emerge from their overwintering sites in search of food and water – both found in homes.

 

In an effort to avoid infestations the National Pest Management Association made a list of tasks for homeowners to follow to eliminate common household pests like ants, ticks and stinging insects from the home.

 

The following are check lists – one for outdoor and one for indoor – to help keep pests from becoming a nuisance.

 

Outdoor Tasks

 

  • 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.

 

  • 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.

 

Indoor Tasks

 

  • 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.
