There are lots of people that are concerned about the spread of the coronavirus. Many states have ordered citizens to stay in the house and stop getting together with more that 10 people at any given time. All major events like sports and concerts have been postponed as well as the shut down of schools and businesses that are not deemed essential. This means that people are spending more and more time at home and with their families. They have to find ways to keep busy and ways to keep their family safe and healthy. You may not think about it but the virus is not the only concern that you should have when it comes to your families health and safety. If you allow pests of any kind in the house and let them invade they can be problematic. Some carry disease such as rats and mice and others cause respiratory concerns such as cockroaches. You want to make sure that you do all that you can to keep pests out of your house even while social distancing. Stewart Termite & Pest Control offers tips for how to keep pests out of your home.
Clear Debris & Maintain Landscape to Keep Pests Out of Yard
When it comes to pests they are not as bold as some people might think they are. They want to do all that they can to stay away from anything that moves from your family to your pet. That means for a pest to feel comfortable they need to have a place that they can hide and stay out of sight. The spring season holds lots of hiding places for a pest because of the fresh growth that starts to flourish during this time. You want to make sure that you get outside the house and do what you can to clean up your landscape. Keep new growth from getting too close to the house. You also want to clean up the debris from plants that might be on the ground and around the edges of your home. This removes many of the areas that pests are able to hide.
Empty Garbage from Trash Cans Often
You may start to notice that the more you are all home together the more trash you seem to collect. The trash around the house comes from eating in the house every day and more people generally in the house. You want to be sure that you keep your crumbs and trash picked up on a daily basis. This means at the end of the night to tie up your bag and take it out to the dumpster. You want to keep food secured so that pests cannot get to it and find a meal.
Exterior Pest Control
Even if you are socially distancing yourself from the rest of the world you can have the exterior of your home treated for pests. The technician can come out and spray around the exterior of the home without needing to talk to or even to contact you directly. This is the ultimate way to prevent pests from getting in your house.
