Tips for a Pest-Free Home
Keeping your home clear of pests starts with good cleaning habits. Crumbs and other food scraps strongly attract pests, so sweeping floors and washing dishes helps remove their food sources. Keep food sealed tightly in glass or metal containers or store it in the refrigerator. Don’t forget to change your garbage bags as soon as they’re full. And, if possible, keep them away from your house until pickup day.

... If the smell of food in your garbage bag or compost bin is strong, add a layer of dry leaves and dirt to hide it from insects. Keep animal products, such as meat and bones, out of your compost bin. Take it to a dedicated facility, instead. Surround your compost bin with wire, rocks or other materials to make it difficult for pests to get inside. If you don’t use a bin, consider burying your compost pile at least 8 inches in the ground to keep it out of reach of rodents and bugs.

Spring Pests Common
Ants become a common spring pest across the country as they return to activity after the cold months. Spring is also the time when many wasps and bees start building their nests around the outside of houses and can be aggressive if you approach.
Fall Pests Common
Bees and wasps can become increasingly aggressive to anyone who approaches their nests as winter approaches. Be careful, as bees might have nested in your attic or garage. Rodents are damaging pests that begin invading homes in fall, looking for winter shelter. And ants might move through tiny cracks into walls or under slab foundations to hide from the cold.
Summer Pests Common
Ants and stinging insects remain among the most active pests through the hot summer months. Meanwhile, spiders build webs near the bright outdoor lights around your house to catch the bugs that are attracted to them. Cockroaches search for food in uncut lawns and inside houses, too.
Winter Pests Common
In winter, cockroaches remain active indoors, searching for crumbs and moisture in kitchens and bathrooms. Spiders also continue to hunt in dark attics or storage areas. Rats and mice can be harmful to your home if they start chewing through wiring in the walls, building winter nests.
