Steps To Follow To Enhance Your Pest Extermination Strategy
Each year, as soon as spring time starts to bring that lovely breeze through your window, the pests too start to line up for making another invasion into your house. Just as the weather starts to heat up again, the pests will start looking for new homes and food sources. Whether it is Ants or termites, rodents, or spiders, you will not want any of the pesky little critters creeping around your house. Prevention is the best remedy if you want to devise a good pest extermination strategy for keeping your house and family safe and preventing the most common household pests from making their way into your homes.
This is where spring cleaning comes in! A thorough clean up of the house will not only help to kick out those pests that have started living in your house without your noticing, but will also make sure that your home does not come up in the limelight as a good place for new pests to move into. You will be amazed at how a simple clean up can make your extermination activity ten times more effective than what it was!
First and foremost you should thoroughly inspect your doors and windows. Check if any new cracks have appeared, inspect the door jamb, the window frame for possible entry points of pests and seal them. Check the window screen if they are properly fitted or not, and repair any holes or tears that may have appeared. This will go a long way in keeping the mosquitoes and spiders out.
The next important step will be a deep cleaning of the kitchen. It is the heart of all the activity in your house and the favorite place for pests to move around with all of the food, crumbs, and debris that any ant or other bug could ever want. Even if you meticulously clean every surface in your kitchen every day you will still be missing many places and will end up attracting a wide variety of pests. So embark upon a thorough clean up of the kitchen, scrub every nook and corner, pull out all the storage cans, appliances and boxes and clean every shelf, cabinet and surface. Also make sure that you clean up the refrigerator and the place underneath and behind it where crumbs and grease can build up over time.
The kitchen is a favorable place for most pests. Even if you do a surface clean of your kitchen every day, you could be missing many places that will eventually attract pests. So put the cleaning gloves on and grab some scrubbing sponges because your kitchen is going to need a deep clean. This means pulling out appliances like the stove and refrigerator so you can scrub underneath, on the sides and behind.
After you are done cleaning, you should move on to hire the best exterminators in Huntington to work on your home. These professionals will go through their annual extermination routine, making your home completely safe against any further pest invasions this year.
