Although the winter months usually bring less pests, spring will soon be upon us. Consider these tips for arming your apartment against pests. No one likes bugs and critters in the house, and with these few simple steps of action, you and your roommates will be the only ones living in your apartment.
- Keep food counters and dining surfaces clean. Pests usually are in search of food and water, and keeping your apartment free of food crumbs and remains will ensure that pests will not find reason to stay.
- Buy traps and sprays ahead of time. Once a pest is in the apartment, it is natural to worry. Having pest elimination supplies on hand to rid the pest from your living spaces will grant you peace of mind, so that when the time comes, correct action can be implemented.
- Make sure screens, window and door spaces are snug. Critters can squeeze through even the smallest cracks. Caulking open draft spaces and fitting windows with correct sized screens will help eliminate bugs and critters entering the apartment.
- Dust and vacuum regularly. Clean floors and living areas will assist you in noticing any changes, any dead bugs or any possible entrance areas that pests are surfacing through.
Use these proactive tips of early preparation and spring cleaning, and your apartment is on its way to being pest free. It is also important to note if your landlord plans on getting the house sprayed for pests, or any other plans of action he or she has intentions on carrying out.
