It’s that magical time of the year again! The time when we are given a blank canvas, a new decade even, and the perfect time to set your intentions for the best year yet. While you’re busy making lists of the personal and career advancements you’d like to make in 2020, don’t forget to make New Year’s Resolutions for your home as well! We’ve taken the liberty of putting together a list of suggested resolutions you can make to keep pests at bay 366 days a year (that’s right, 2020 is a Leap Year!):
- Keep your foundation sealed –Having cracks in your foundation is always a risk factor for a pest control issue. Moisture can enter which is an attractant for many pests. Cracks also provide easy access for stinging insects to create nests.
- Keep things tidy – Keeping your home clean is not just important for the perfect Instagram photo. In terms of pest management, keeping a clean and organized home can be the perfect (and super easy) way to avoid creating food and nesting sources for rodents and insects that you probably would prefer not to share with.
- Don’t let piles of debris accumulate near the house – In the spring and summer this can mean grass clippings, in the fall it is piles of leaves, and during the winter your wood pile is the major concern. In all of these scenarios, keeping piles of debris close to the house is akin to creating a welcome mat for insects and rodents alike.
- Join WRAPS or CAP – Both of these programs are specially designed by Attention Pest Solutions to keep you and your family safe from pest problems all year long and to provide peace of mind so you can focus on the important things in life. Learn more about these programs.
