Now bring us some figgy pudding

And bring it right here!

Now, if you are like most modern Americans, you are probably wondering what on earth is figgy pudding? Is it a real dessert? Maybe it’s a little like chocolate pudding only made out of figs? Actually, figgy pudding is more like cake than pudding, containing ingredients such as dried fruit, nutmeg, cinnamon, and rum. In fact, it is a little like the dreaded holiday dish known only as fruit cake. So, it is a pretty safe bet to say that most modern Americans would not enjoy a plate full of figgy pudding. However, we can think of plenty of others who would just love figgy pudding or any other food that is left around your kitchen.

Household pests are always on the lookout for a free meal, and they're not as picky as we are. If they find figgy pudding or any other food and drink at your house, they are likely to stick around awhile. The following are things you can do to make your New York home inaccessible and unappealing to unwanted pests.

Pest prevention tips:

  • Keep your house clean. Thoroughly clean areas where food is prepared or eaten, taking special care in places where there are bound to be spills and crumbs such as under toasters, around refrigerators, and between the stove and counter.

  • Store all food, including pet food, in tightly sealed plastic containers.

  • Only put pet food down during meal times.

  • Fix any pipes that leak and clear up any standing water around sinks, tubs, and toilets.

  • Carefully inspect the outside of your foundation, outer walls, and roof area for gaps, holes, or cracks. Fill in these holes using a caulking gun.

  • Trim back bushes and trees from your home.

  • De-clutter your yard and remove any standing water.

  • Store firewood as far away from the house as possible and keep it up off the ground.
