January is the perfect time to unfold your life! The hustle and bustle of the holiday season is over, and it’s time to reset and work on your resolutions. Pests love clutter. This provides them with ample hiding places, as well as places to build their nests. Keeping your home free of clutter won’t just deter pests: It’ll also help you spot them when they’re around!

So get rid of those cardboard boxes you’ve been holding on to, clean out those piles of clothes and carefully put away those holiday decorations.

Keep things clean

Clear your space is one thing, but keep your space clean is another. A great New Year’s resolution is to create and maintain a cleaning schedule!

Start making it a habit to wipe down the counters after you make dinner, and choose a time of day when you can wash the dirty dishes regularly. A little cleaning every day is much easier to maintain than deep cleaning, and will go a long way in deterring pests. Even just vacuuming once a week will make a big difference!

Seal your home

This is something that many homeowners put off, but it is very important. Maybe you got swept up in the holiday craziness at the start of winter, but now you have time to tackle some home projects!

Get to work and seal any holes, cracks or crevices where pests can enter your home. Not only will this keep animals out where they belong, but it will also keep your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer—saving you on your power bill!
