World Pest Day Brings Awareness This Summer
The best way to control pest issues in your home is not to treat them after they make their way into your home, but to put into place measures to prevent them from even occurring. When pests (think mice, termites, spiders, ants etc.) enter your Howard County home they can cause major structural damage, destroy personal property, bring disease and in general become a large nuisance. Using exclusion techniques to prevent these types pests from entering your Glenwood, Maryland home will ensure that no or minimal amounts of pesticides will have to be used to treat pest problems.
Exclusion (or keeping pests out) works by repairing areas around your home that allow pests access to your home, along with eliminating elements like food, water and shelter. Ants, stink bugs, termites and other insects as well as mice and rodents will enter into your home through cracks and spaces in your home’s foundation; sealing up these spaces is a great way to prevent pests from getting in. Making sure that gaps and spaces around doors and windows are caulked and that screens are completely intact will also eliminate opportunities for pests seeking entry. Place a fitted cap on your chimney, as this is a favorite entrance for pests. You should also:
Store your garbage in bins with a tight fitting lid away from your home
Keep areas like gardens and compost piles a good distance from your home if possible
Refrain from leaving food or open packages of food on the counters where it is easy for pests to access
Store produce in the refrigerator and dry goods in sealed containers
Make sure that any leaky pipes are fixed so that a water source is not being provided
Keep your home neat and tidy in order to discourage pests from hiding and nesting in the home
