Top Tips for a Pest Free New Year

Let’s make it our New Year’s resolution to avoid getting into any pest problems this year! We’ve got some incredible top tips that will help limit your chances of coming face to face with uninvited visitors, along with what to do if the worst happens. We hope your 2015 will be full of happiness and joy, without a single pest in sight.

  • Clean and tidy – We know that everyone likes to keep their homes clean and tidy, and sometimes this won’t prevent pests from being attracted to your property. However, it’s a good idea to add a few more tasks to your daily cleaning list, in order to reduce the risk of seeing any pests. Keep your floors clean, vacuumed and mopped, any food packaged up properly, and anywhere you prepare meals thoroughly wiped down. Also, make sure that wherever you store litter is properly sealed, so as not to attract any pesky pests.
  • Cracks and crevices – Those little critters will make their way into your home in the smallest of cracks or crevices, so make it a New Year’s resolution to stop this from happening. Have a look around your home for any tiles holes that could fit a mouse (they don’t need to be any bigger than 10mm), then get them filled in. You’ll notice a huge difference using this simple trick.
  • Consider pest proofing – If you have had pest problems in the past then you may want to consider pest proofing your home. Our expert team at Pestserve can survey your home and look for any potential pest risks. This could be something as simple as trimming the foliage outside your house, or a complete pest proofing solution. Don’t let the bugs get you down in 2015!

Make sure you keep an eye out for any tell-tale signs of pests which may include:

  • Noises such as scratching or tiny footsteps
  • Any pest faecal matter or skin shed
  • Damage to the property, such as smears or scratches
  • Actually seeing pests, such as ants, spiders, mice or rats
  • Scratching or itching, which may be a sign of fleas or bedbugs
