One of the last things you probably want in the new year is a pest problem. Make some resolutions to change your home by putting the tips listed below into action, and keep pests from making way into your home in 2014.
*Seal holes and cracks on the outside of the home including entry points for utilities and pipes.
*Keep tree branches and shrubbery well trimmed and away from the house.
*Keep basements, attics, and crawl spaces well ventilated and dry.
*Store your garbage in sealed containers, and dispose of garbage regularly.
*Make repairs on rotted roof shingles and fascia; some insects are drawn to deteriorating wood.
*Replace weather-stripping and repair loose mortar around basement foundation and windows.
*Fire wood should be stored at least 20 feet away from the house and five inches off the ground.
