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.
