Now that the new year is here, it’s time to figure out your 2020 pest control plan. Keeping your home pest-free throughout the year doesn’t have to feel impossible. By planning out your year of pest control now, you can stay ahead of the pests. Here are a few of the best tips for a successful 2020 pest control plan.
Identify Your Pests
The first step in the war on pests is knowing your enemy. Being familiar with the common pests in your area and when they are most active helps you create an effective pest control strategy. Knowing which pests are most active during each season gives you the advantage. Consistent pest monitoring allows you to attack the pests before they get out of control.

Clean Your Home and Fortify the Entrances
When it comes to having a pest-free home, there are a couple of things you can do around your home to help. Keeping your home clean throughout the year should be a part of your 2020 pest control plan. Make it a point to clean any messes, spills, or crumbs immediately. By removing an easy food supply, you’re making your home less hospitable to pests. Keep all of your food in properly sealed containers and never leave pet food out overnight. Make sure you take out the trash every night and store it in a sealed container away from your home.
Another easy way to prevent pests throughout the year is by fortifying the exterior of your home. Pests can squeeze through tiny cracks and gaps in the foundation, siding, doors, windows, screens, and even the roof. Check your exterior for any vulnerabilities and seal them up. By fortifying your home against the pests, you can greatly reduce the number of pests entering your home.
