The Australian winter brings doesn’t just bring colder weather to us here in Brisbane and across southeast Queensland. It also helps attract a number of pests to your home. These pests include spiders, cockroaches, bed bugs, ants and more. Looking for warmth and a stable food source, these winter pests invade your home where they can find both. What can you do to keep them away? There are a number of DIY pest prevention and pest control tips that you can try. In this latest blog article the Pest Control North Brisbane team will be taking a look at some of the measures you can take to help keep away these winter pests.
Seal Gaps and Cracks
Do you have any gaps and cracks in your home? These could be gaps under doors, cracks in walls or spaces under windows. These are the places pests use to get into your home. Sealing any gaps or cracks in your home is a great way to keep pests out over winter.
Keep Your Home Clean
Pests love clutter and mess as it provides them with shelter and even a place for them to lay their eggs. By keeping your house free of clutter and mess you will be making your home less attractive to all kinds of winter pests, like spiders, ants and cockroaches. Try to keep your home clean over winter and you will see less pests crawling around.
Don’t Leave Food or Waste Out
One of the primary reasons why pests enter your home over winter is food. Many of us are guilty of leaving food out or dropping food crumbs on the floor. This provides a solid food source for many different types of pests and is certainly something that can attract them to take up residence in your home. Cleaning your home regularly to remove any leftover food waste is one of the best methods you can try to help keep common winter pests away from your home.
