How to keep pests out of your DFW home

How to keep pests out of your DFW home

Each year, damage due to pests costs North Texans loads of money, in addition to posing significant health risks. The fundamental goal of protecting your home is identifying which pests you should be most concerned with and finding solutions to keep them out of your home. This can apply to homeowners throughout the area including Grapevine, Southlake, Keller and North Richland Hills among others. Here are seven tips that can assist you in keeping pests out of your home.

Trim Backyard Trees
Deter pests from using your trees and branches as a way into your home by trimming any limbs that hover over your roof. If you find your trees to be a more extensive problem you should contact a local landscaper in DFW.

Eliminate Entry Ways
Fix your broken screens, cover up openings from the outside, and eliminate hiding spots, such as the edge of a cabinet or a base board.

Maintain Kitchen and Dining Room 
Keep your food spaces spotless and free of crumbs or stains. It's also wise to store food in sealed containers only, and ensure your garbage is sealed in locked cans or pails away from your house.

Clean Gutters and Spouts 
Clean gutters and spouts until they are completely clear of leaves and debris in order to terminate a potential hot spot for mosquitoes.

Check Attics and Basements 
Inspect the attic, garage, basement and other confined spaces for signs of pests, including residue and damage left behind.

Repair Leaks 
Don't delay fixing your home's minor leaks; damaging pests, like termites and carpenter ants are attracted to wet and rotting wood.

Address Nesting Areas 
Regularly follow up on inspections in your home and outside of it for signs of pests and immediately take care of any nesting areas you discover.
