No one wants to share their home with pests, but sometimes they come inside anyway. Scratching your head to figure out why? There are many reasons they make your home their own. Continue reading to learn how you can prevent a pest infestation.

How to Prevent a Pest Infestation

1. Keep Your Space Tidy

Pests search for safe areas to live, and a room cluttered with objects provides great hiding spots. This is especially true for your garage, attic or basement where you might not spend as much time. Also, crumbs left on the floor provide easy snacks.

2. Close Entry Points

Pests need a way to get inside, so if you take that away from them, you can help your pest problem. Follow an ant trail to see if there is an opening near your window or door. Walk around your home and inspect for cracks in the foundation. Remember that pests can get in through the tiniest of holes.

3. Store Food Properly

Pests come into your home looking for safety and food. Don’t make it easier for them to eat! All of your food, particularly dry goods, should be stored in air-tight containers. This is especially important for food you store in the basement or garage—including your pet’s food.

4. Fix Leaks

Some pests, like silverfish, seek out water, and a leak somewhere in your home will attract them. If you suddenly see many pests gathering in a certain area, you might be dealing with a leak as well.
