Pest control is a big part of keeping your home clean and cozy. Here's how to keep pests out:
1. Clean up food crumbs and
spills right away, before they attract rodents or ants.
2. Store food in airtight containers or in the refrigerator or freezer.
3. Keep pet food dishes clean and never leave them on the floor overnight, where they can be eaten by ants or other small animals.
4. Check under doors for signs of pest entry, such as tiny holes or piles of sawdust from wood-eating termites. If necessary, install door sweeps to prevent pests from getting inside walls through cracks by closing these openings off with rubber seals around the edges of all doors leading outside (including garage doors) or into other rooms of your home where there is no flooring (such as closets).
