There’s a lot that goes into protecting your home. Some threats to your home can’t be detected by a security system. Each year homeowners face expensive damage caused by pests. These pest threats are most significant during the spring and summer. You need to be aware of how to protect your home from these threats. Here at Trahan Insurance Agency LLC, serving the greater Griswold, CT region, and the surrounding areas, we want to help you protect your home.
These are some ways to protect your home from pests this summer:
Get An Inspection
If you haven’t had your home inspected by a professional pest control specialist in a while, you should consider doing this. These professionals can uncover pest infestations early on. Early intervention can help you avoid some of the expensive damage that can be caused by pests.
Keep Lawns Well Maintained
Many pest problems are really a result of poor maintenance in some other aspects of the home, such as the lawn. Allowing grass or underbrush to get overgrown will encourage the colonization of certain types of pests such as ants and termites.
Keep Your Home Clean
Other pests are often attracted to accumulated trash or clutter. For instance, cock roaches are often attracted to cardboard boxes and paper. When items such as these are allowed to accumulate, it can result in pest issues.
Keep Standing Water At a Minimum
Standing water will attract many different types of harmful insects, including mosquitos. Mosquitos will not necessarily cause damage to your home, but they can be harmful to people and pets on your property.
