Finally, A New Years Resolution You Can Keep 

See you never, 2021! With the New Year comes a fresh start and new opportunities! While many people make New Years resolutions that only last through February (we’re looking at you, gym memberships), may we suggest an even more important resolution you can actually stick to—keeping your home pest-free!

With set it and forget it scheduling and service reminders, Home Pest is here to help you thrive this year! When hitting the gym five days a week goes out the door and staying interested in your new hobby falls by the wayside, we’ll be here to help you stay on track with your resolution for a bug-free home by keeping pests like mosquitoes, termites, and ants far away from your property! 
As we look ahead to a brighter and better 2022, we’d like to take a few minutes to share some easy things you can do at home to amplify your pest control service and really give bugs the business.

Be Proactive

Many homeowners have a bad habit of waiting until a pest problem becomes a full-blown infestation before calling in the big guns. Seeing a couple of ants or a mouse dropping may not seem like a big deal at the time, but it can quickly multiply into a full battalion, invading your space to the point where you’d rather move than deal with the elimination process. Save your time, energy, and money by making sure you give us a call at the first sign of any pest activity.

Keep A Tidy Kitchen

The kitchen often acts as the heart of the home—a place where family and friends gather around the table to laugh, bond, and create memories to last a lifetime. Unfortunately, pests like mice, ants, and cockroaches would also love to join in on the merriment. Be sure to clean up any crumbs, spills, and dirty dishes and dispose of garbage ASAP to prevent these pests from taking it as an open invitation to join your next family feast.

Cut Back Shrubs and Excess Limbs From Trees

You wood-n’t believe how fast termites, rodents, and insects can turn a rogue branch into a gateway to your home. Cut back trees and shrubs around your home exterior, and keep piles of wood stored at least 3 feet away, so these pests don’t march their way across these buggy bridges.

Eliminate Clutter

It’s likely that getting organized ranks pretty high on your list of New Years resolutions, and we back it! Keeping your home clutter-free doubles down on your pest control efforts by eliminating hiding places for spiders, rodents, and cockroaches to turn into their new nests. Nobody wants a squatter in their home!

Set Yourself Up for Success with Scheduled Pest Control Service

Many people believe that changes in the weather can make pests disappear. Don’t be those people. Even when you think pests are dormant (like in the winter), rest assured they are lurking around finding a way to move in. Scheduling year-round pest control treatments goes a long way in keeping pests where they belong—out of your home.
Home Pest Control offers a wide range of comprehensive plans catered to your needs, starting as low as $32/month! View our package pricing here, or give us a call today to determine which option is best for your home.
