Whether you are a private individual, a restaurant or a public service, no one is immune to a pest infestation. You should therefore be proactive to avoid any surprises. As the old saying goes: prevention is better than cure! Fortunately, good preventive measures can help you control pests.
Discover some helpful tips to combat pests before they infest your home.
Clean up well to prevent pest infestation
Like all living things, pests are in search of the food they need to survive. However, our houses, apartments and even our offices are, in the eyes of these undesirable tenants, big pantry cupboards waiting to be looted.
To prevent pests from entering, you should avoid leaving crumbs or food lying around, which could attract them to the building. This can be done by keeping the place clean. Also make sure that food is stored in proper containers.
Block potential entry points: pests be gone!
A building is an ideal shelter for pests seeking the comfort of darkness and warmth. Pests will try to get inside through all possible openings: a simple crack in a wall or a small hole in a mosquito net is enough to provide an entrance to your home. For this reason, you should make sure that the building is as airtight as possible. This can be done by caulking all potential entry points. A professional will be able to help you identify them and effectively fill them with the right sealing material.
Drive pests off your property with preventive measures
Pests not only infest the inside of buildings, some are perfectly comfortable outdoors. They can then become a problem if they decide to settle on your property. To effectively defend a building against pest intrusion, applying preventive measures outside your home can be helpful. This can be done by making sure that no food is accessible outside: for example, you can seal your garbage containers and limit access to bird feeders. Do not hesitate to call in a professional exterminator, who can inspect your property and give you recommendations for avoiding a possible infestation.
