How to Keep Pests Away from Your House
The main reason pests enter homes is the smell of food. Rodents, pantry pests and other insects all want a share of the crumbs on that plate or the food in the garbage bag you’ve been meaning to change. Avoid accidentally inviting bugs into your kitchen by sealing all food in metal or glass containers. Minimize the risk of attracting pests by following these quick tips:

Consider burying your compost pile at least 8” in the ground where rodents won’t be able to get to it. If you’re using a bin, cover or surrounding it with wire, rocks or bricks to make it less accessible to pests. Add a layer of dirt or dried leaves and sticks to reduce the smell of the material inside. Stirring the mixture makes it less attractive to rats and also aerates it, boosting the chemical reactions.
Which Pests actually help the composting process?
Surprise! Some pests, such as pill bugs and slugs, can help your compost pile or garden soil. As these pests move around the material or dirt, they mix it and aerate it. They also leave behind natural fertilizer as they feed. Both of these are helpful side effects of having the pests around until they move onto your other garden plants or into your home. If you notice this happening, call an Aptive professional right away to create a custom pest management plan.
Common Spring Pests in Twinsburg
As spring arrives and the air warms, many pests wake from hibernation and return to activity. Pavement ants become a common sight on sidewalks and the edges of yards. Spiders that might’ve wintered in your home start building webs around roofing and on plants. Any queen wasps that sheltered indoors might also be searching houses for a place to lay eggs.
Common Summer Pests in Twinsburg
Summer is the most active season for pests. Slugs and snails invade gardens after periods of rain. Cockroaches follow the scent of food to picnics and into kitchens. Bees, wasps and other stinging insects buzz around flowers while rodents scavenge through garbage. Aphids are particularly damaging to plants because they suck the moisture from their leaves.
Common Fall Pests in Twinsburg
During the fall, pests begin searching for winter shelter, often indoors. Spiders and ants move into garages, sheds and low-traffic storage areas. Mice and rats can cause big problems for homeowners if they chew through wiring building nests in the walls.
Common Winter Pests in Twinsburg
