Problems with pests? You’re not alone. Insects and rodents are a year-round problem for Bay Area residents. Whether it’s mice, ants, termites, fleas or something more unusual, find the right solution to your pest problem.
4 Ways to Start Pest Prevention
- Keep things clean. By sealing containers and meticulously cleaning after meals, you’ll remove any elements that could lead to a pest infestation.
- Be diligent about de-webbing. By clearing away spiders’ webs, you’ll thwart their ability to get food and encourage them to “set up shop” elsewhere.
- Mind the gap. When a home’s siding extends down into soil, it gives termites an opportunity to crawl beneath it undetected and infiltrate the home. For this reason, it’s important to maintain a gap of at least two to three inches between your home’s stucco and the soil.
- Guard the garage. When thoroughly cleaning their homes, many people overlook the garage, which can serve as a means for rats and other pests to gain access to living areas.
