How to Keep Pests Away from Your House

The easiest, most effective way to keep pests away from your house in the first place is controlling the things that attract them. Keeping food in tightly sealed metal or glass containers, storing food in the refrigerator, and regularly changing garbage bags eliminates the smells that bring pests looking for food. Sweeping up crumbs from floors and counters and washing dishes right away also helps to make your home less obvious to hungry bugs and rodents.

Many people are composting to reduce the amount of waste they produce. 30% of household waste in the U.S. is made up of organic materials, so composting helps keep some of that out of landfills. Unfortunately, that pile of food scraps is like a buffet laid out for pests. Use our helpful tips to prevent pests from getting into your compost bin or garbage cans.

  • Keep animal products, such as leftover meat, fats and bones, in sealed containers until you can take them to a dedicated composting facility.
  • Consider burying your compost pile at least 8 inches in the ground to hide it from rodents.
  • Mask the smell of your garbage can or compost bin by adding a layer of dry leaves or dirt to it.
  • Keep garbage away from your house and surround compost bins with obstacles like sticks or wire.

Helpful pests for gardening and composting

We know how it sounds, but it’s true: some pests can actually benefit your garden soil and compost pile. For example, pill bugs and slugs produce natural fertilizer. They also aerate the soil and other composting material as they navigate through them, assisting the chemical reactions and improving oxygen flow. However, they’re still pests—it’s likely they’ll move onto other plants in your garden or even into your home if given the chance. As soon as you see signs of this or notice spiders, earwigs or wasps coming around, call Aptive’s local branch in Deerfield Beach, FL to discuss treatment plans.

What Attracts Pests to Your Home?

No one wants to find pests in or around their home but, unfortunately, we share with them a taste for water, sweet snacks, and fresh garden plants. Bugs are determined to get to the crumbs you didn’t even notice under your table. More than a nuisance, these pests can bring serious risks to your family and pets. The best way to keep them out and prevent an infestation is to clean regularly and thoroughly, eliminating smells that attract pests to food.

Common Spring Pests

Fire ants and pharaoh ants are the most common nuisances around homes in Florida. As flowers bloom in the spring, bees and other insects come to pollinate them. Spring is also the time when ant colonies emerge from winter hiding and return to lawns and sidewalks. Cockroaches also become active outdoors again with the return of hot weather.

Common Fall Pests

Fall signals to pests that they’ll soon need shelter for the winter, causing mice, rats and ants to search for ways into warm homes. It’s important for homeowners in Deerfield Beach to inspect attics and garages for bees’ nests that might have been built over the summer.

Common Summer Pests

Black widow and brown recluse spiders are particularly terrifying pests to encounter in the summer but they’re only dangerous to people if they’re disturbed. Cockroaches and ants continue to bother homes in the summer months, too. Meanwhile, piles of garbage bags often attract rodents during the night.

Common Winter Pests

Rodents are dangerous to homes if they’ve gotten inside for the winter, as they can damage wiring building nests in the walls. Spiders and cockroaches remain active indoors through the winter. And nocturnal silverfish are most often seen in the cold months, feeding on paper, glue, starch and textiles.

Aptive’s innovative Four Seasons Protection Plan is designed to prevent these and other pests from invading your home and lawn. Call Aptive today to learn more about how our personalized service will protect your home from pests, year in and year out.
