Seven resolutions for a pest free home.
By Exodus Exterminating.

DeclutterClutter, whether it is in your yard or in your home, is attractive to many kinds of pests.
Removing clutter is a great resolution to minimize pest infestations.

Trash cansAny food or trash, rotting or otherwise, can be a food source for pests.Keep those cans covered. Making this investment can prevent a nasty surprise in the future declutter. 

LightsMany insects are drawn in by light. The flying insects that gather near these lights will also attract spiders!To prevent this, replace outside white lights with yellow bulbs, which is less attractive to insects.

Clean RegularlyCrumbs that fall off plates can feed multiple types of pests from mites to cockroaches.   Clean periodically under your fridge and on the sides of your oven. This will keep many bugs away. Especially cockroaches.

Openings and CracksWhether it be high or low, inspect for unwanted openings and cracks around the perimeter of your home.Use a caulking gun, expanding foam or copper stuffing to seal any gaps, cracks and rotted holes.

FirewoodStore any woodpiles a minimum of 15 feet away from your home. Putting a home and food source for insects and rodents next to your house is never a good idea.

Call the ProsProfessional perimeter treatments and inspections will reduce rodents, ants, spiders, and other bugs from threatening your home.Seasonal visits from a professional will keep you informed of the pests that threaten your home.
