Spring cleaning is an opportune practice to inspect homes for and fix areas presenting potential pest threats since homeowners are already going through each room and the outdoor premises to get organized

Spring cleaning is a longstanding tradition helping homeowners welcome the warmer season’s weather, from bringing the outdoor patio furniture out of storage to simply reorganizing the shelves and closets in the house. While the attention of spring cleaning is mainly on aesthetic purposes, Bug Busters reminds homeowners that there are also specific spring cleaning steps they can take to protect their home from pest invasions and damage.
“Spring cleaning is an opportune practice to inspect homes for and fix areas presenting potential pest threats since homeowners are already going through each room and the outdoor premises to get organized,” says Bug Busters Chief Operating Officer Court Parker. “Even taking note of, and sealing, the smallest crack or opening is beneficial in the long run as those crevices, if not attended to, can grow larger with time and become points of entry into the home for pests.”
The spring months also mark the onset of harmful pests including stinging insects like yellow jackets, wasps and hornets, making pest prevention especially important this time of year. As such, Bug Busters recommends the following quick and simple, yet valuable, pest-proofing tips provided by the NPMA:
- Seal up cracks and small openings along the foundation of the house.
- Eliminate sources of moisture or standing water.
- Keep tree branches and other plants cut back from the house.
- Keep kitchens clean by wiping counters and emptying the garbage frequently.
- Keep all food containers sealed.
- Avoid leaving pet's food dishes out for long periods of time.
- Keep trash containers clean and sealed, both indoors and outdoors.
- Screen windows and doors.
