It’s SPRING, which means all kinds of critters are hatching and emerging from hibernation this time of year. Insects and pests, particularly ants, roaches, termites, spiders and silverfish, are popping out in droves. Are you prepared to ward off these invaders from your home? Here are a few simple things you can do to help keep your house pest free right now:

  • Regularly clean around your fridge, stove and dishwasher to remove food crumbs, and wipe down baseboards. Be sure to clean kitchen counters after every meal.
  • Clean out your pantry and store open food items in airtight containers. Never store food items on the floor.
  • Rinse out all food or beverage cans and bottles before discarding them.
  • Keep garbage containers sealed and remove regularly.
  • Trim tree branches and shrubs around your house and remove any fallen branches, foliage or debris that accumulated over the winter.
