Tips To Keep Pests Out This Fall
As we move into the heart of fall and winter begins to approaches, it’s essential that you take time to evaluate your pest control measures. The fall months are when you’ll likely begin to see an uptick in rodents and pests. Consider these tips to help keep pests out of your home this fall.
Landscape Around Your Home
Many people don’t realize that outdoor maintenance can go a long way toward preventing pests in the home. That’s because unkempt bushes and trees can prove to be a safe-haven for pest and rodents and they seek an entry point to your home. If there are bushes near your home, be sure to trim them to approximately three feet. Also be sure to cut any branches that overhang your roof.
Replace Door Sweeps
After about a year, there’s a good chance that your door sweeps and weather stripping have worn down, providing access points for bugs. Be sure to replace your door sweeps and weather stripping to prevent bugs from entering. When you do so, make sure that they are flush with the ground.

You’ll also want to make sure that there are no holes in your window screens that would allow pests to enter. There are numerous products available online that can help you repair holes in a screen.
