5 Tips for Pest Prevention with the Experts at Greenix

Share [addtoany]

1. Keep a Clean and Tidy Space

Pest prevention is essential for homeowners. It helps to keep pests from causing damage to property, spreading disease, and generally making life unpleasant. As a pest control company, Greenix has seen firsthand the importance of pest prevention and have developed some key practices to help our clients keep pests at bay between services.

One of the most important things you can do to prevent pests from invading your home is to keep it well-maintained. This means regularly sweeping up crumbs and debris, wiping down surfaces, and properly storing food and trash. Pests are attracted to areas where they can find food and water, so denying them access to these resources is essential.

2. Seal Entry Points

Pests can enter your property through even the tiniest of gaps and cracks. To prevent this from happening, make sure to seal any entry points you find. This includes sealing cracks in walls, floors, and ceilings, as well as sealing gaps around doors and windows. At Greenix, we provide this service, but keeping an eye on your property in the meantime can help with the upkeep.

3. Maintain Landscaping

Your landscaping can play a big role in attracting or repelling pests. Overgrown vegetation can provide hiding places and breeding grounds for pests, while a well-maintained lawn and garden can help to deter them because of how exposed it makes them. Make sure to regularly give attention to your yard to keep an eye out for pests and prevent them from coming around.

4. Address Leaks and Excess Moisture

Pests love water, so if you have any leaks or even puddles on your property, it’s important to address them quickly. This could mean fixing leaky pipes or faucets, repairing any water damage, and ensuring that your property has proper drainage. By reducing the amount of moisture in and around your home, you’ll make it less appealing to pests.

5. Work with a Professional Pest Control Company

One of the best things you can do to prevent pests is to work with a professional pest control company. Greenix expert exterminators can help to identify potential problem areas on your property and develop a customized pest prevention plan. We can also provide regular inspections and treatments to keep pests at bay all year round. Pest prevention is a necessity for anyone who owns a home. Pests have the ability to spread disease and contaminate your food, as well as damage the structural integrity of your home. Instead of letting pests take over, get proactive! Call the Greenix team to schedule your next pest inspection and be on your way to a tailored service that addresses all of your home’s pest control needs.
