Don't Let Pests Ruin Your Valentine's Day◀ Back To Blog
February 13, 2018
You can’t wait to see your significant other’s face when he or she sees everything you’ve planned in order to make this Valentine’s Day special! You know you’ve really outdone yourself this year, and you are certain you've thought of every single detail… and then it happens. The most embarrassing, disappointing mood-killer possible: a mouse darts out from under the refrigerator, causing your date to jump on a chair and scream, or a cockroach crawls across the table where you’re seated by candlelight enjoying your Valentine’s Day meal! It doesn’t matter how well your date is going up until that moment, nothing will make a date end faster than pests inviting themselves to your Valentine’s Day date! If pests make an appearance in your home during your special moment, chances are they’ll ruin your Valentine’s Day.
Pests come into our homes in search of food, water, and shelter. With the cold February temperatures in upstate New York, some nuisance pests are also looking for a place to keep warm and survive the winter. You can make your home less accessible and help prevent pests with the following tips:
Inspect the outside of your home and the foundation for any possible entry points
Use caulk or steel wool to seal gaps, cracks, and openings around pipes and utility cables
Install door sweeps
Replace broken window screens
Fix leaky faucets and pipes to reduce access to water
Vacuum regularly to eliminate crumbs
Keep food in tightly sealed containers
Promptly take the trash out and keep in covered receptacles
