Local Pest Control Tips & How To Handle Holiday Pests

Dear Friends,

How To Handle Holiday PestsHappy Holidays from Brezden Pest Control. We would like to take this opportunity to extend a note of thanks to our  hard working staff and loyal customers. We are looking forward to a prosperous 2016. 2016. This year marks our  35th year in business protecting the residents of San Luis Obispo county  from bothersome pests in their homes and offices. We’ve come a long way from a two-person crew operating out of  a garage in Cayucos, CA.  We’re proud to have be recognized  by Angie’s List as a Super Service Award winner in our category. It is with genuine appreciation that we recognize the contribution of our clients’ support and loyalty in making this possible.

The holiday season is upon us and as you deck the halls you may want to keep in mind these tips to keep holiday pests at bay:

  • Inspect all decorations: Holiday decorations are most often tucked away in the darkest recesses of our homes, just the type of places that creepy crawlies and critters like to set up shop.  Unfortunately, the process of unpacking decorations from storage can end up disturbing and disbursing them to more populated areas of the home. There are a few home pest control precautions you can take to minimize spreading unwanted guests about the house. Take all boxes and storage containers directly outside before opening and be sure to inspect all decorations thoroughly for any indication of pest infestation.  Look for cobwebs and droppings and dispose of immediately. Also check for  teeth marks, particularly on electrical wires where safety is an issue. When decorating with live foliage be sure to check for any stowaways and remove them before bringing into the home.
  • Pest-proof your home: Don’t make it easy for pests to get into your home this holiday season. Check all possible points of entry and make any necessary repairs. Inspect doors, windows and screens to ensure all seals are secure. Apply caulking or install weather stripping if needed.  Look for gaps at the site of any plumbing, electrical or cable installations and caulk or seal as needed.
  • Holiday cleaning: Giving your home a thorough cleaning this holiday season serves a bigger purpose that just to impress company; it is also an integral step in keeping pests at bay. Make sure not to leave food lying about, always use proper storage methods and airtight containers. Dispose of all expired foods and clean all spills and messes as they happen. Regular vacuuming and trash removal will also help to make your house less hospitable to bugs and rodents.
  • Proper storage of decorations: Don’t invite trouble into your home!  When the holidays are over make sure your decorations are packaged and stored correctly.  Don’t leave holiday items loose or use plastic bags and cardboard boxes to store them.  It pays to invest in sturdy storage bins with tight fitting lids.  This will keep pests out and deter them from making their home in your holiday decor.
