One of life’s greatest accomplishments is becoming a new home owner. Several responsibilities come with buying a home such as scheduling a termite inspection before closing. In addition to inspections, ensuring a prevention method is in place is just as important for year-round pest control.

Here are 3 steps to keep your new home pest free year-round:


If your home sat empty for any period of time, it is a good idea to complete a pre-inspection of your home prior to moving your belongings inside.

Keep your eye out for theses tell-tale signs of a pest problem:

  • Pest droppings left by common pests such as cockroaches and rodents. Not sure what pest droppings look like or not able to identify? Visit our blog as a reference for the most common forms of pest droppings found inside the home.

Tip: It is always a good idea to have pest control services spray before you move in.

  • Gaps, cracks, or leaks around windows or home entry points. If you see signs of these, it is important to seal them immediately. Open areas allow the pests in your home.
