What Attracts Household Pests?
You may have some unwelcome pests in your home, but do you know what could be drawing them there in the first place? Many times it is out of your hands, but there might be some things in your home that are attracting these pests. At Good Life Pest Solutions we can help rid you of pest infestations, and prevent them from coming back. Let’s take a look at some things that draw these pests to homes in the first place, and what you can do about it.
Keep Your Kitchen Clean
It’s always good to have a clean kitchen, and that may just be the thing to help prevent you from having unwanted visitors. Any food or even empty food containers left out on your countertops can attract rodents. If you provide them with food then they will keep coming back! Leaving out sugar or sugary treats may cause an infestation of ants, and any crumbs that go uncleaned could become a feast for rodents, ants, or cockroaches.
Repair Cracks, Holes, and Tears
Pests are drawn to food, warmth, and dampness, and they could be gaining easy access to these things in your home. Check for cracks in walls and in your foundation, as well as around the perimeter of your house. Or, there may be small holes or tears in screens that are allowing them access. If you repair all of the cracks, holes, and tears that you find then you will greatly reduce their ability to get inside your house.
Check for Leaking Pipes and Improper Drainage
Even pests need water to survive. If you have any leaky pipes or drainage issues, then you might have just enough moisture or even some standing water to keep the pests coming back. Make sure that you aren’t providing them with a much-needed water source.
