Ways to make your home less welcoming to pests

Cut down on clutter

Clutter gives pests a perfect place to make and keep a permanent home.


Trim tree limbs regularly

Pests can access your home more easily from tree limbs that hang over or touch your roof or the sides of your home.


Properly store pet food

Pests love open food! Keeping your dog, cat, or other pet food securely stored when not in use. Lift food bowls off of the ground at night.


Adopt a preventative pest control program

Our experts recommend treating for pests once a month if you are experiencing a problem. Treat every three months, or quarterly, to keep pests away.
