What to expect when the snow melts COMMON SPRING PESTS

How to Keep Pests Out During Spring

Spruce up Your Landscape

If you want to keep pests out of your home and away from your property, the area around your home is one of the best places to start. Pests need food, water, and shelter, and your landscape might be providing them with easy access to all three as the weather warms and we receive more rainfall.

Firewood, mulch, piles of leaves from last winter, and anywhere that standing water accumulates are all some of the most common areas that could be drawing pests to the area around your home. Be sure to wear gloves if your spring landscaping involves reaching under or into an area that could be harboring pests, and always check yourself for ticks once you’ve finished.

Check Your Windows

There’s nothing better than opening your windows and letting the fresh spring air fill your home, but it’s important to make sure that you're not inadvertently letting pests inside in the process. Start by checking your window screens for tears and punctures and either purchasing new screens or making the repairs yourself before leaving your windows open. Then, examine the space between your window frames and your home’s exterior for gaps. Cold temperatures can cause frames to contract during winter and expand as the weather gets warmer. The shifts are small enough to go unnoticed each season, but they can create visible gaps that provide pests with easy access to your home.

Don't Forget Your Spring Cleaning!

Keeping your home clean won’t guarantee a pest-free spring, but it will reduce the risk of unwanted visitors making their way inside. As you dust throughout your home and get rid of items that have been cluttering your home all winter, don’t forget to look in less frequently used areas of your home for pests. Basements, attics, crawl spaces, and guest room closets are all some of the most common places pests may have taken up residence during winter.

Once you’ve tackled everything on your spring cleaning list, follow these tips to keep pests out for the rest of the season!

  • Keep your kitchen clean and free of crumbs.
  • Store flour in the freezer and make sure that other perishables are stored in airtight jars.
  • Fix leaky faucets and invest in a quality dehumidifier if any rooms in your home are particularly humid. Laundry rooms and basements are the two areas you should check first!
  • Make sure that your trash can’s lid fits tightly and that you’ve thoroughly rinsed anything that’s going into the recycling bin.
