Being a Mom in today’s world is a lot different than being a mom years ago. There are so many things that you must focus on that weren’t an issue a few decades ago. Kid’s sporting and other extracurricular activities have dominated your schedule as have carpools, appointments, and running your household; and all of this occurs while holding down a 40 hour a week job! No wonder you are so tired! Being a mom in today’s word is certainly not for the faint of heart, and sometimes it all gets a little overwhelming. The very last thing any mom should have to worry about is that trail of ants that might be headed up the foundation to the tiny tear in your screen or the mouse that found its way around the pipes leading into your home.
Pest prevention in our home is sometimes something that we only think about when the pests are already there. That moment when you angrily have to pick up the phone and punch in the number for a professional pest control service to get rid of roaches is a reminder that, though moms try to see everything that there is, there could be a hidden world of insects and rodents going on around you. If you are not careful, they are happy to move right in.
Finding out that you have any type of infestation is heartbreaking, but you and your family can do a lot to prevent this from happening. Pests are often attracted to spots outside that they can hide in. Keep any brush piles or leaves well away from the foundation of your home, and trim or remove bushes and trees that are too close. Also, make sure branches are trimmed and kept from the roofline and from siding. Keeping your grass trimmed is helpful as well. If there is anything in your yard with standing water, such as a bird bath, be sure that it is kept well away from the house. Any stored bird seed or pet foods should be in containers with tight fitting lids, and any trash cans should be secure as well. Pests look for three things in a hospitable environment: shelter, food and water. The less they find the better of you are.
Take a peek at all of your doors and windows. If there are screens or weather stripping that needs to be repaired, be sure you do so as soon as possible. Also, take a moment to check the pipes leading into your home for leaks and for spaces around them. Mice and other pests need very little space to get through to the nice warm inside. Do not give them that chance.
Finally, inside, make sure that any dishes are not left unwashed and the sink is clean. Make sure trash is taken out each night and any pet food is put away when the pet is done. Any food left out should be stored in airtight plastic containers, and clutter should always be cleared away. P.S. Mom, this is a good chance for you to make sure that everyone pitches in. They live there too.
