Pest Control

The cleaner you can keep you home, the better. The more you take the offensive approach keeping food and debris cleaned up, the less attractive your home will be
Recycled items should be stored at outside the home. If this is not possible make sure the containers are rinsed thoroughly. Keeping them in sealed containers will also help pest control and elimination attempts.
Pest Control: Lights outside of doorways are attracted to lights left on at night. Light bulbs with a pink, yellow or orange tint attract fewer insects. The further away you can keep your light from the entrance point, the better protection you will have from home invasion.
Pest Control: Keep your yard clean. Donít let trash or litter accumulate. Prevent standing water and weeds. Outside trash cans should have sealed lids and any spills should be cleaned up right away.
Any little cracks, gaps or crevices along doors and windows need to be sealed up and repaired. If you have a screen door, there is access to screens with holes small enough to help prevent unwanted visitors.
Around your home, use rock or stone instead of wood chips or straw. Keep potential hideout places for pests away from your home. If you have trees next to your home, keep branches cut back so there is no bridge access from the tree to the home.
Pest Control When boiling water, boil some extra water. Pour this down your sink. This will kill cockroaches and remove their eggs.
