How to Get Rid of Springtime Pests in Your Home

Spring’s warm sunshine makes it possible for pests and bugs to emerge from their winter sleep. Before you know it, you’ll have ants, bees and other pests taking over your home, yard and garden. 

Some pests can be dangerous to your health and the health of your family. We service a lot of customers in the Tennessee and Northern Mississippi area. Our pest experts at Germantown Pest Control field a lot of questions about getting rid of pests at this time of the year.

Read on to find out more about how to get rid of springtime pests in your home.

Clear Your Home of Clutter

Clutter is a haven for springtime pests like spiders, ants, mice and more. So, while you're clearing out old stuff and pet-related items, get rid of these pests at the same time.

Spray a repellant like vinegar or lemon juice around your home to keep ants from building nests. 

Keep Your House and Lawn Clean

As a homeowner, you want your home to be clean and healthy—not moldy and crawling with pests. Be on the lookout for webs, egg sacs, and bugs, and especially look for insects that may be in your home. 

Rodents and insects can serve as an indicator of other pest activity.

Outside, concentrate on keeping your lawn trimmed and remove any type of old wood and leaves.

Keep Food Stored Away From Pests

One of the easiest ways to keep pests out is simply to wipe down your kitchen, bathroom and areas around your home. Pay special attention to areas that show signs of moisture. 

Keep all foods properly stored away and your counters and tabletops clean and clear of crumbs. This helps you get rid of any insects that may have made your home their home too.  

Fill in Holes and Cracks in Your Home

Holes in walls, damaged screens and more are an open invitation for pests. Consider having our experts perform a home or business pest inspection. Our skilled technicians know exactly where pests will show up. 

Once the inspection is complete, the technician will show you their report and help you come up with a plan to get rid of your pests.
