Tips for Keeping Pests Off Your Holiday Decorations

Christmas is coming! With the holiday season just around the corner, homeowners need to prepare for hanging up lights, setting up their trees and getting the stockings hung by the chimney (with care, of course). But even amid such holiday cheer, homeowners must remain aware of potential pest threats and take the necessary precautions to keep the family safe this Christmas. Luckily, Germantown Pest Control is here to help. Keep reading to discover some helpful tips for keeping pests off your holiday decorations. 

Clear Debris

The first step to keeping your home clear of pests is to maintain cleanliness on your property. Pests will already be drawn to the warmth of your home, so it’s vital that you limit their incentives to come and pay you a visit. Keeping your space clean will ensure that pests do not attempt to get too close to your decorations, whether they’re on the inside or outside of your house. Eliminate any piles of dead leaves in your yard. Trim any foliage or vegetation that grows near your home. Cut back tree limbs that come into close contact with your house. Check your pipes and faucets for leaks and get rid of any standing water in the interior of your home. Clear out any clutter and make sure that your decorations do not get too messy. Piles of clutter are perfect spots for pests to hide and make homes.

Keep Watch

The looming threat of pests can be very intimidating. That’s why it’s so important to prepare and make sure that you’re keeping an eye out for infestations. Check for signs of invasions - rat or mouse droppings, damaged plants, grease stains, structural damage, and chewed items by your decorations could be giveaways that you have pests in your home. Try to prevent such intrusions by sealing up cracks or holes in the exterior of your home.
