Before starting your spring cleaning, inspect your property for any signs of wild animals or insects. Look for nests, burrows, droppings, or any other indications of animal or insect activity.

 

2. Seal Entry Points:

Wild animals and insects can enter your home through small cracks and openings. Seal any gaps in your home's exterior, including around doors, windows, pipes, and vents, to prevent them from getting inside.

 

3. Secure Food Sources:

Keep food stored in airtight containers to prevent attracting animals and insects. Clean up any food spills promptly and avoid leaving pet food outside.

Wild animals and insects are attracted to cluttered areas where they can hide and nest. Remove clutter from your yard and around your home to reduce hiding spots and make your property less appealing to pests.

Consider using environmentally friendly pest control measures, such as traps or natural repellents, to deter wild animals and insects from your property. Consult with professionals for safe and effective pest control options.
