First and foremost, Happy New Year! We hope everyone had an incredible holiday season and we look forward to serving old and new customers alike in 2015.
Every year we make New Year’s resolutions. Some of us keep those resolutions, and others… not so much. This year, Aerex Pest Control wants to help you keep the most important resolution of them all…preventing pests! Because who wants to deal with rodents, bugs and arachnids? Not you!
So, we’ve compiled a top 3 list of pest control related New Year’s resolutions. Stick with these, and you won’t feel too guilty about dropping the ball on the others!
1. I will keep my home clean, particularly the kitchen & garbage receptacles.
Because… the kitchen is the LAST place you want to find pests. Furthermore, pests in the kitchen are often a result of less-than-sparkling conditions. We’re not saying the kitchen has to be perfect, but make sure to clean up after meals and keep food in air tight containers. Remember, one ant leads to two ants which leads to thousands.
2. I will inspect my home for open cracks & crevices, and seal them tightly.
Because… many pests can enter a space through even a tiny opening. In fact, mice can enter through openings as small as 1/4 of an inch! Sealing cracks, crevices and openings will prevent a problem before it starts.
3. I will keep shrubbery and wood at least 1 foot away from my home.
Because… branches, shrubs, plants or wood that touches your home creates an opportunity for pests to get inside. Keeping these things off the exterior of your home will help keep pests away and outside (where they belong).
We know it’s not easy to keep pest control at the top of your mind, but we promise you will thank us for a pest-free year if you follow these tips. If you do encounter a pest issue in your home, give us a call!
