New Year’s Pest Solution #1: Don’t Turn A Blind Eye

The 2021 version of you may have had a laissez-faire attitude towards a blatant sign of pest infestations. After all, seeing a couple of random insects roaming around your kitchen is no big deal, right? Wrong! Attitudes of ‘I’ll deal with this later’ should be left in 2021.

We understand. Pests are a pain and it’s time-consuming to deal with them in our busy lives. Remember though – procrastination often ensures that relatively minor pest problems quickly turn into full-on pest invasions.

For instance, when a small number of ants have discovered food, they’ll chemically signal their colony with pheromones. An originally ant-sized issue can rapidly grow into an ant army-sized catastrophe in your home.

This is only one of an endless list of examples where an infestation can manifest itself at a frighteningly fervent rate. So, when something seems even slightly amiss, pick up the phone and call Terminix Canada. Our pest solutions can prevent problems from escalating throughout 2022.

New Year’s Pest Solution #2: Protect Your Waste

We’ll level with you. We’re all guilty of sometimes placing our recycling and garbage bins outdoors, expecting them to remain unscathed until they’re collected come garbage day.

If you live in the likes of Montreal, Toronto, or Vancouver however, unprotected waste provides wildlife like raccoons a complimentary meal, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

As a mean of defense, some folks go as far as to keep their green bins shut with intricate bungee cord contraptions.

Another method to ensure you don’t find yourself the victim of a raccoon-influenced trash explosion, is hanging a string of blinking holiday lights around trash cans. Sure, you probably just put lights back in the attic after recently celebrating the holidays. However, remember that lights act as a raccoon deterrent year-round.

Also, sprinkling ammonia on your trash bags will keep the crafty little trash pandas at bay. Hiring Terminix Canada is your best bet for results but in the meantime, why not give these everyday pest solutions a go yourself?

New Year’s Pest Solution #3: Periodic Inspections And Preventative Maintenance

You were very busy this past year, and you didn’t take the time to suss out any possible unwanted creepy, crawly infiltrations within your home. And hey, maybe you didn’t pay for it with an overwhelming pest problem.

Still, that doesn’t mean you won’t suffer come 2022 from your lack of vigilance and due diligence. You need to make sure that you’re performing your own periodic inspections. We’re talking about those dark, uninhabited spots in your home, specifically in attics and basements.

It’s best to choose specific dates on your calendar so your new initiative doesn’t fall by the wayside throughout 2022.

As important as periodic pest inspections are, so is preventative pest maintenance around your home. This includes keeping up with repairs by sealing small cracks inside your home and around the perimeter.

What seems like a small, innocuous crack to you, is a giant gaping opportunity for miniscule pests such as ants, cockroaches, termites, and mice to enter your home.
