Winter Pest Prevention Tips

AZ Pest Control recommends following these tips to help protect against pest problems this winter:

  • Seal cracks and holes on the outside of the structure using caulk, steel wool or a combination of both.
  • Replace loose mortar and weather stripping around the basement foundation and windows.
  • Install door sweeps on exterior doors and repair damaged screens.
  • Screen vents and openings to chimneys.
  • Keep attics, basements and crawl spaces well ventilated and dry. Consider using a dehumidifier in these areas.
  • Store food in airtight containers and dispose of garbage regularly.
  • Keep exterior doors shut at all times.
  • Inspect items such as boxes of decorations and grocery bags before bringing them indoors.
  • Store firewood at least 20 feet away from the house and keep shrubbery trimmed and cut back from the house.
