Tips for Preventing Pests in Columbus Homes

Always wash dishes or put them in the dishwasher after you’re done with them. Pests can climb onto counters to reach dirty plates, contaminating eating surfaces. Changing garbage bags as soon as they’re full is another simple way to avoid attracting pests.
Composting for Columbus Homes

Bury your compost pile at least eight inches in the ground to make it less accessible to pests. If you’re using a dedicated bin, make sure its lid closes tightly. If it doesn’t have a lid, you can also block the opening with sticks or wire to keep rodents out. Adding a layer of dried leaves or dirt on top of the composting material can help mask the smell and make it more difficult for bugs to find.
Most Active Spring Pests in Columbus
In the spring, many pests become active again after overwintering underground or in less desirable places—attics, walls, garages. Ants, in particular, become common sights on sidewalks, driveways and kitchen floors. Other insects, including yellow jackets and wasps, also start searching for food.
Most Active Summer Pests in Columbus
Warm summer weather brings people outside, where pest activity is at its highest. Stinging insects often interrupt cookouts while ants quickly find ways into the picnic foods. Ticks and fleas can become serious problems in the summer when pets and people spend more time near grassy and wooded areas.
Most Active Fall Pests in Columbus
Cockroaches, which are generally active all year, might become especially noticeable if they start moving indoors when temperatures cool. Mice squeeze through tiny holes for the same reason. Spiders, meanwhile, build webs where they can catch insects. If the insects start entering homes, so will spiders.
Most Active Winter Pests in Columbus
Winter might seem like a quiet time for pests, but they can still cause problems. Mice that have found ways inside can damage wiring and furniture as they build nests. Spiders can build a number of webs in attics, basements and other storage areas. Cockroaches can multiply and spread extremely quickly. Seeing one means there might already be an infestation.
