Cockroaches, rats, and other insects might be lurking inside your house without your knowledge. These tiny critters may not only pose health implications but also give you major damages on your property. You don’t want them munching on your house bit by bit. Therefore, during signs of a pest infestation, you need to do some checking and start keeping your home pest-free.
Here’s a list of the things you can do to prevent pests from destroying your property:
- Seal potential entry points
Pests will always look for tiny holes or gaps to access your home. In this case, you must inspect house exteriors for cracks on the foundation and gaps between pipes. You must also inspect the interior for crevices. Pipes and wires from the ceiling or underground going inside may serve as their passageway. Seal all possible entrances to avoid inviting unwanted pests.
- Install screens on vents and openings
