THE TOP TIPS FOR PEST PROOFING YOUR HOME IN LAS VEGAS

The fall season in Las Vegas is here and not too far way are the winter months when we spend more time indoors. From Summerlin to Henderson we are feeling the comfort of our homes….until a mouse or a cockroach scurries across the floor.

Pests such as rats, mice, cockroaches and some spiders come indoors to find shelter to survive during winter months. These pests can be harmful to both people and homes. Rodents are known to transmit diseases such as salmonella and Hantavirus. Cockroaches can contaminate stored food, leave droppings around the house and cause allergic asthma especially in children. Some spiders commonly found around the house can be poisonous.

The following is a list you can follow to keep pests away.

  1. Screen attic vents and openings to chimneys or any other areas in the home that may be open to the outdoors.
  2. Keep basements, attics and crawl spaces well ventilated and dry. Pests are attracted to moist areas.
  3. Seal cracks and crevices on the outside of the home using caulk and steel wool. Pay close attention to where utility pipes enter the home.
  4. Keep kitchen counters clean, dispose of garbage regularly and store food in airtight containers.
  5. Replace weather-stripping and repair loose mortar around the foundation and windows.
  6. Store firewood at least 20 feet away from the house and also keep shrubbery well trimmed.
  7. Install door sweeps and repair damaged screens.
  8. Inspect any boxes or grocery bags that you bring into the home – even boxes you have stored in your garage.
  9. Do not leave pet food dishes out for long periods of time.
  10. Have a proper outdoor drainage system – to draw water and moisture away from your home
