The start of a new year always represents an excellent opportunity to enact real and long-lasting change in areas that need a bit of attention… and if you know that you’ve had pest control problems in the past, it might be wise to make a few new year’s resolutions to help you prevent infestations in the future.

To help you get started and point you in the right direction from the outset, here are a few resolution ideas from the team here at The Exterminator Pest Control. Good luck!


  1. Tidy up

Having lots of mess and clutter can give pests of all kinds places in which to hide and make comfy little nests, but you can easily keep them at bay by tidying up regularly and getting rid of any excess belongings that are just taking up space.


  1. Keep lids on bins

Pests love nothing more than easy access to food sources. If you know you’re often a bit slack when it comes to throwing rubbish away, always make sure you take the bins out each day (or as needed) and keep the lids on tightly so you don’t attract any unwanted attention.


  1. Clean regularly

One of the best lines of defence against pests of all kinds is maintaining a robust cleaning schedule. Over time, food scraps and other debris can build up and this can draw the pests in, so make it harder for them by keeping everything sparkling and hygienic.


  1. Prevent access

There are lots of ways in which pests can enter your property, but you can prevent this by blocking up any gaps and holes you can find, both internally and externally.
