Storms can cause devastating effects on homes across the US, but while homeowners may take proper precautions to ensure these natural events don’t tear down the house, there are other risks you may not be so prepared for.
Follow these 5 tips to ensure your home is protected from pests during storms. And for all of your pest control needs, call B & D Pest Control Solutions LLC. With customized services created by highly trained pest management technicians, you can expect the best pest protection.
1. Inspect Your Home
Before the storm or hurricane season hits, it’s worth having your home inspected both inside and out. There may be certain small issues, such as cracks that could be worsened by the storm, which give pests a lot more opportunities to enter the home. Consider sealing these cracks, fixing water damage, and cleaning the gutters to ensure your home doesn’t seem inviting to these pests.
2. Take the Trash Farther from the House
If you have garbage cans too close to your home, it can help pests get from the trash into your home. By taking the cans further away, you can give yourself more time to act if you notice a higher number of pests surrounding it, and take care of the problem well before moving closer to your house.
3. Get Rid of Debris and Foods
If the storm causes a bit of damage, and you find yourself with a lot of debris around your home, you should start cleaning up quickly. This debris can offer pests the perfect hiding spots, and you may notice a problem when it’s too late. Food lying around, especially spoiled food, can attract the pest to begin with, like flies, rats, and others.
4. Remove Standing Water As Soon As You Can
Whenever the storm has caused water to accumulate, you need to remove it quickly to avoid developing mosquito stocks. These pests only need half an inch of water to breed, and soon enough, your entire home may be plagued by these creatures.
5. Analyze Your Damaged Wood
Termites’ natural food source is wood, and they love raw wood, which is often caused by water damage. The smell can actually attract these pests looking for a fresh food source. Don’t just look at the wood in your home – any trees you have, especially close to your home, could allow these creatures to jump into your home, causing even more damage.
