Each year people make an extra effort to start off on the right foot. One area that people aim to improve is their overall cleanliness. If you’re trying to keep your house clean and free of pests in 2019, use these tips.
Limit Where You Eat
Make it a point to only eat in the kitchen and dining areas of your house. Crumbs and food residue will increase the risk of invasion from ants and other pests. It’s best to eat in areas that are easy to clean.
Clean Spills Immediately
If you spill any kind of food or drink, clean it up immediately to avoid attracting pests like fruit flies and ants. Sugary or fruity substances are especially appealing to insects.
Wash Dishes Daily
Waiting to wash dishes might not seem like a big deal, but the longer they sit, the more likely they are to welcome pests into your kitchen. Try to wash dishes, wipe down the sink and clean out the drain daily.
Keep Fruit Fresh
Fruit can also be pest magnets, so make sure you are eating or throwing it away in a timely manner, especially in warmer weather.
Take Out The Trash
Don’t wait until your garbage cans are overflowing to taking the trash out because it can attract pests of all sizes. It’s good to get into a routine of taking your trash out at least once or twice a week.
