With the holidays right around the corner and the fall chill in the air, your home has become cozy and inviting. Unfortunately, alongside your Thanksgiving Day guests, pests will also start making themselves at home. So, what if bugs and rodents threaten to ruin your holiday plans? Here are a few tips to prevent pests at your Thanksgiving gathering this year.
Ways To Prevent Pests At Your Thanksgiving Dinner
The majority of insects and rodents seek food, water, and shelter in cooler months. Aside from your homes warmth, removing the majority of these elements can make your home less attractive. Most pest prevention starts with proper storage and consistent cleanup from everyone in the household.
These simple tips will help prevent spiders, rats, mice, and other pests from intruding on your holiday gatherings:
clean up any spills as soon as they happen
keep sugar in airtight containers
seal any gaps, cracks around the home
replace cardboard boxes with plastic tubs
seal trash cans and dispose of often
These preventive tips should keep the bugs and mice out of your home before your Thanksgiving guests arrive. Despite your best efforts, you may still experience a pest infestation – in this case, calling in a team of pest professionals is a must.
