How Can I Pest Proof My Home?

Nashville, Murfreesboro and Mt. Juliet TN

This fall as we break out the jackets, sweaters and look forward to cooler temperatures, pest with four or more legs may be crawling into our homes.

Pest adapt to the ever changing environment. Homeowners need to take steps year-round to pest proof their homes. In the fall and winter months, the most common home invaders are house mice. A considerable health threat, these critters can transmit disease and have been proven an allergen to children. Mice are also known to consume and contaminate our food, chew up woodwork and insulation, and trigger electrical problems by nibbling on wires.

Some tips to consider when pest proofing your home.

  1. Seal up any cracks and holes on the outside of your home.
  2. Make sure foundation vents are screened.
  3. Keep shrubs, tree branches well trimmed and away form the house.
  4. Store garbage in sealed containers and dispose of it regularly.
  5. Replace worn out weather stripping.
  6. Store fire wood at least 20 feet away from the house and five inches off the ground
