Stop Pantry Pests from Feasting on Your Food this Winter!
As the weather changes and temperatures drop, household pests often seek warmth and shelter inside your homes. You may have seen a sudden increase of pests or rodents around your living space and are wondering if it’s normal. Unfortunately, yes! Fall and winter are notorious for attracting unwanted guests indoors.
At Ecola Termite and Pest Control, we understand that these invaders can cause significant damage to homes and household items. Therefore, we would like to help you prevent any infestations by sharing the types of pests that house owners frequently encounter, as well as some practical prevention tips.
Types of Pests
Several pests usually seek refuge indoors during this season. Pantry pests, such as beetles, moths, and weevils, love food sources found in pantries and cabinets, including cereals, grains, and pet food. Meanwhile, mites and cockroaches tend to lurk around humid areas such as bathrooms or basements. However, mice and rats can access your house through cracks and holes, which makes them incredibly challenging to eradicate.
There is an array of non-toxic, DIY techniques that homeowners can implement to prevent pest infestations. Here are some practical tips:
– Seal any openings such as cracks and holes on walls, floors, or ceilings
– Store food items in airtight containers, preferably glass or metal
– Clean the kitchen regularly and maintain proper ventilation to reduce humidity
– Remove clutter and maintain cleanliness to avoid hiding places
