Tip #1: Break out those sweets, but don’t leave them out! Mice, ants, and roaches can have a feast on the smallest crumb, so be sure to clean up after the party and use airtight containers to store your food.
Tip #2: Check out the Christmas decor. Inspect your Christmas tree or other decor from the attic before bringing it in- small rodents like to nest in the limbs, as well as spiders and mites. Give it a good look over before bringing it inside!
Tip #3: Check the ingredients! Check out the containers of your ingredients before using to be sure they are free from common kitchen invaders like Indian Meal Moths.
Tip #4: Seal up any openings. Mice can fit through shockingly small areas. Make sure your home is sealed by using chalk and steal wool. Also inspect your home for signs of mice, such as droppings and damaged foods. Squirrels are also seeking shelter during the cold winter months, so check your attic for any signs of wildlife activity. For more information about our wildlife and exclusion services click here.
