The primary draw for pests to enter your home is food. You can help avoid attracting bugs by practicing good cleaning habits. Wash dishes and sweep the floors regularly so rodents and insects don’t find crumbs to eat. Keep pantry pests out by sealing food tightly in glass or metal containers. And don’t let garbage bags sit once they’re full; they can attract mice and other unwanted pests.
Composting has become a popular way to dispose of organic materials. Since 30% of all waste produced by U.S. households is organic, composting is a great way to reduce waste and help the environment. However, the smell of food scraps can bring hungry pests to your garden or yard. Follow these tips to prevent your compost bin from attracting pests:
Surround your bin with obstacles, such as rocks or wire, so pests can’t get into it easily.
Rats don’t like when their food is disturbed, so stirring the mix can help deter them. If you’re not using a bin, bury the compost pile at least 8” in the ground so it’s inaccessible.
Cover the waste inside with a layer of dirt or dry leaves and sticks to partially mask the smell.
Yes!—to an extent. Pill bugs and slugs are two examples of helpful pests. As they move around your compost pile or garden soil, they aerate it, increasing the oxygen flow and boosting chemical reactions. They also produce natural fertilizer. These are great side effects of having pests, at least until they move onto your other garden plants or into your home. Once this starts to occur, an infestation might not be far off. Call an Aptive professional right away to discuss custom pest control plans for your home.

When the weather warms up in the spring, lots of pests return from a period of decreased activity in the winter. Ants, especially, move their colonies back outside to sidewalks and yards, though scorpions become active in the warmer weather, too.
In the fall, rodents such as mice and rats begin trying to enter homes to find shelter for the winter. Spiders will also look for places in garages, attics or other indoor locations to wait out the cooler months.
Summer is generally pest season. Cockroaches search for food inside and outside. Scorpions are more active during the cooler nights. Earwigs feed on damp tree leaves while stinging insects, including bees and wasps, head for the flowers and find roofs to build nests on.
Winter, even a mild one, brings pests inside through any small cracks or open doors they can find. Rodents, spiders and cockroaches all remain somewhat active if they build shelters in your home. Pantry pests such as Indian meal moths and grain beetles also remain active, feeding on loosely stored food items.
The Four Seasons Protection Plan from Aptive Environmental is specially designed to prevent infestations year-round by targeting each season’s most active pests. Call our Sandy branch today to discuss personalized service for your home.Get a Free Quote
