Holiday Pest Control: Keeping Roaches, Rodents, and Other Pests Out of the Kitchen

holiday pest control tipsThe holidays are almost here, and for most families that means lots of big, home-cooked meals, leftovers, holiday baking, and plenty of festive, seasonal snacks. Unfortunately, this season of plenty is also the season when pests are desperately seeking shelter, and all of that food makes your home an even more appealing place to roaches, rats, mice, fruit flies, moths, and beetles!

Clean up crumbs and spills

It’s easy to make a mess in the kitchen while whipping up all of your favorite festive treats, but don’t forget to clean up any crumbs, spills, and splatters, which can attract roaches and rodents. The best way to ensure your kitchen is free of food residues is to wipe up as you go, then do a final clean-up after the meal is complete.

Take out the trash

Make sure all trash is placed in a garbage can with a liner or trash bag and a lid. Clean up any food residue on the can, and most importantly, take the trash out often, before it can start to smell and attract unwanted guests.

Food storage

There’s nothing worse than starting to mix up a batch of your favorite holiday treats only to discover meal moths or grain beetles in the flour! Avoid these unpleasant surprises by keeping all pantry staples sealed in airtight containers. It’s also a good idea to periodically clean out your pantry and cabinets, wiping up any spills you find.

If you do get an influx of unwanted holiday guests, don’t panic. Just call our Woodstock pest control company at 770-212-9990 for quick and friendly assistance for all of your pest extermination needs.
