how to prevent a winter pest infestation

Throughout the winter months, pests will search for a few things: warmth, shelter, food, and water. Your home provides all of these things in one relatively safe space. So to prevent these pests from entering your home, you’ll first need to make sure that all gaps and holes in your home exterior are filled. This will prevent pests from being able to enter your home.

Additionally, make your home as unattractive to pests as you can. Do this by keeping your home crumb-free and dry. With no food, or water readily available for pests, they’ll be less likely to enter your home.
