How to keep pests and unwanted visitors away

Once you’ve identified a pest or animal problem, the last thing you want is a repeat. To prevent a future infestation, start by inspecting your home for any holes or gaps that pests could use as an entry point.

Next, aim to keep your gutters free of debris, and don’t leave food scraps lying around on the ground near your home, as doing so could attract creatures you’d rather avoid. Along these lines, don’t leave pet food out overnight, and make sure to secure garbage can lids — especially when there’s food waste inside them.
