The Essentials of Winter Pest Prevention

Temperatures are dropping fast in Illinois and Wisconsin, and that means pests of all shapes and sizes will be coming in from the cold looking for a cozy place to call home during the winter. Fortunately, there are some easy things you can do to keep your home pest-free over the coming months:

  • Keep food in airtight containers and dispose of garbage regularly
  • Store firewood at least 20 feet from your home and inspect firewood carefully before bringing it inside
  • Seal cracks and hole on the outside of your home, and install screens over chimney vents and openings
  • Install gutters to channel water away from your home and fix plumbing leaks to cut off water sources for pests interested in moving in for the holidays
