The BBQ season is here, finally! Everyone in Toronto is coming out to have fun, socialize, and play. Pests are coming out, too. Pests such as mice, ants, termites, and roaches have been feeding well during the lockdown, and you may notice more of them this summer.
However, you can keep pests out of your home this BBQ season by taking the following steps, courtesy of our team at Advantage Pest Control:
1. Clean Up
Pests, especially roaches and mice, thrive in dirty places. They hide and scavenge for food in the rubbish. As such, clean your home thoroughly using safe, pest-repelling detergents, including those hard-to-reach spaces where pests hide. We offer the following:
- All-Purpose Cleaner & Degreaser – 946 mL
- Cherry Bomb Gel Hand Cleaner – 48 fl oz
- Foaming Wall Cleaner – 18 fl oz
2. Starve Them
Pests invade your home looking for food, and they will stay (and multiply exponentially) as long as they find enough of it. However, pests such as mice will migrate elsewhere when they lack a food source. As such, cut off their food supply by keeping your food supply locked securely in the pantry. Additionally, clean up any leftovers after eating and keep the garbage out.
3. Lock Up
Pests mostly come in through open windows and doors. Small pests will also exploit small cracks and openings in your home. It is advisable to keep the windows and doors closed and seal any cracks and openings.
4. Call Pest Control
Pests such as roaches and mice can be difficult to get rid of, even using these measures. It’s important to consult professional pest control service providers if your pest infestation threatens to get out of hand. It is also advisable to schedule regular pest control maintenance.
