April is National Pest Management Month which means it’s time to recognize the role the pest management industry plays in protecting people and property against the threats of pests. First celebrated by the National Pest Management Association, this month-long recognition has been going on for over 30 years now!
Tips to Prevent Pest Infestations
It also happens to be the start of a season in which we begin to see unwanted spring and summer pests return to invade our cookouts and homes. So in honor of National Pest Management Month, the pest management professionals at Modern Pest Services would like to share some tips for homeowners to prevent infestations of ants and other pests as the weather heats up.
- Eliminate sources of standing water and moisture on your property
- Keep branches and shrubs cut back so they are not touching your house
- Remove sticks, twigs, and other wood from your property
- Protect your home with tight fitting screens in all the windows
- Keep trash stored in bins with tight fitting lids
These tips for the outside of your home will help avoid the threat of pests like rodents and carpenter ants from causing structural damage and leaving costly repairs and damages. Also, by following the pest prevention tips, you will be decreasing the chance of major health concerns from pests like mice and cockroaches who can spread diseases and leave family members and even pets sick.
