Cleaning Your Home To Avoid Pests From Moving In

Let’s face it- we’ve all dealt with ants and other annoying pests at some point in our lifetime, whether it be at our home, a relative’s home, a vacation home, or even hotel. There are many things you can do to help keep bugs out of your house, starting with ensuring your home is clean!

Keeping the Counters Clean

Keeping your kitchen and dining room table clear of crumbs and other open/obtainable food is key. Bugs love to gravitate towards messes. Keep snacks and fruit off the counters and in enclosed cabinets, with snack clips or ziploc baggies implemented.

Vacuum Regularly

We suggest vacuuming your entire home once a week. Vacuuming ensures you pick up any loose crumbs or food that may have fallen on the ground. 

Sweep the Floors Regularly

Hand in hand with vacuuming is sweeping the floors, especially your kitchen! We recommend sweeping every few days in the kitchen, to ensure any ingredients that may have fallen during cooking aren’t left  on the floor for pests to find.

Keep Trash Covered

While it’s recommended to toss your trash in bins outside whenever there is heavy amounts of food present, ensure any food related items are thrown into the kitchen trash with a lid on it. This way, your bin is covered and it’s much less accessible.

Keep it Dry

Water is dangerous for encouraging pests. Wet areas serve as both a drinking fountain as well as a breeding ground for bugs. A sink filled with dirty dishes and water is a prime example. Not only will this attract insects, it also can start to smell. We recommend cleaning dishes immediately after use, or investing in a dishwasher.

While there are many ways to avoid welcoming pests into our homes, sometimes, it can be unavoidable. These simple tips can be affective in limiting the number of critters you find in your home and keeping your home in a much cleaner state!
