Tips For Protecting Your Home From Winter Pests

Tips For Protecting Your Home From Winter Pests

It’s important to make sure your home is pest free all year long, even during colder months. Frigid temperatures and snow don’t scare off pests, so we’ve put together a list of things you can  do to protect your home from pests in winter:

  • Screen attic vents and chimney openings
  • Eliminate any plumbing issues, like leaking pipes or clogged drains
  • Seal any cracks or holes around your home’s exterior
  • Store food in airtight containers
  • Dispose of garbage regularly and make sure covers are secure
  • Store firewood at least 20 feet away from your home
  • Keep shrubbery well-trimmed
  • Install door sweeps and repair damaged screens
  • Inspect items (i.e., boxes from your garage) before bringing them into the house
  • Properly store holiday decorations
