Any person who has ever seen a pest in their home can tell you that the number one place they have spotted them is in the kitchen. Especially when it comes to mice, ants, and roaches. Pests are bad enough in any part of the house, but they do the most damage in the kitchen. They get into everything from your food to the pet’s dishes and even chew through boxes to get to the food inside. Worse than that is the droppings they leave behind that can make you and your family sick. Luckily, there are ways that you can prevent pests from entering your kitchen. Read on below for a couple of the top tips for preventing pests from invading your kitchen.

Keep Dishes Washed and DriedIf you want to prevent pests from entering your kitchen, you can’t leave dishes in the sink, especially overnight. Make sure that all dishes are washed, dried, and put away shortly after they make their way into your sink. Pests love to lick the plates clean so to speak, something you don’t want to find when you go into the kitchen in the middle of the night.

Hire the Pest Control ProfessionalsHiring an Elk Grove exterminator to spray your home at least once a month is a great way of preventing pests from entering the home. On top of that, monthly inspections will let the exterminator pick up on any signs that you might have the beginnings of a pest control problem.

These are just a couple of the top tips for preventing pests of any kind from invading your kitchen and the rest of your home as well. For more information on where to find an Elk Grove exterminator, contact the offices of Apex Pest Control for help.
