Time For Fall Pest Control In Kentucky

Previous Post | Next Post


Living in Kentucky or Indiana you have probably realized that the fall is here in full swing and that the cooler weather is here to stay. As a homeowner, now is the time of year that you should start making improvements and fixes in and around your home to help prevent fall pests from entering into your house. Fall pests like spiders (house spiders, brown recluse spiders, and black widow spiders), house mice, the Norway rat, ants, and many others are now looking for a place to overwinter in. These fall pests prefer areas that are easy to access, are secluded, warm and are near food and water sources. If you prevent them from entering your home and take away the necessities they are looking for then you have a good chance that fall pests will just walk on by your house and look for an easier target.

Don’t let your home become a Motel 6 for the pests in your neighborhood! Applying simple pest prevention tips to your property will not take much time or cost a lot of money and has the potential to actually save you a lot of both in the future! You can start protecting your home this fall by following the helpful guide provided below:

  1. Rake up and remove fallen leaves, trim back trees, bushes and other landscaping from the exterior of your home, keep woodpiles and compost areas a good distance away from the exterior of your home.

  2. Make sure that gutters are clean and that rainwater is being directed away from your home’s foundation since many pests are drawn to areas of moisture. Inside your home repair any leaky faucets or pipes.

  3. Make sure that your chimney has a tight fitting cap on it and that any missing or loose roof shingles are repaired or replaced.

  4. Seal cracks and crevices in your homes foundation; caulk gaps around exterior windows and doors.

  5. Inside your home keep storage areas as clutter free as possible and keep items in storage in plastic containers with lids, not in cardboard boxes.

  6. Do not store food on your kitchen counters and be sure to keep fruits and vegetables in the refrigerator. Clean up spills and crumbs immediately and make sure not to leave dirty dishes in your sink for long periods of time.

  7. Contact your local pest control company to put into place a year-round pest control plan to help eliminate any current pest problems and provide services throughout the year to prevent future problems from occurring.
