There’s nothing worse than having unwanted pests in your home and garden - but how do you get rid of them?

Prokill Pest Control Services Telford are pest control experts who offer an immediate and expert response to pest problems in residential and commercial premises – here, they offer some top tips on how to protect your home from rats, mice, moths, wasps, bees and more:

  • Pests are attracted to areas of moisture as this is something they need to survive. Keep attics well ventilated and dry.
  • Seal cracks and holes on the outside of the home and pay close attention to where pipes enter. If you can fit a standard sized pencil into a hole, fill it.
  • Keep your kitchen work tops clean and store food in airtight containers.
  • Dispose of rubbish regularly as pest love crumbs and food build up. Always make sure your bin lids are closed properly.
  • Open fires are fabulous but the wood piles act as a perfect shelter for rodents. Store firewood at least 20 feet away from the house.
  • Enjoy feeding garden birds?  That’s great but don't leave out too much food and use a bird table or feeder if possible.
  • If any items have been stored outside for long periods of time inspect them for insects before bringing them indoors.
  • Don’t leave cat/dog bowls out for long periods of time.
  • Make repairs to gutters and drains to keep leaks or build up away from your home.
