The world is on high alert and most people are doing what they can to stop the spread of coronavirus. The most common way to do that is to make sure that you are practicing social distancing. This is when you are asked to keep a six-foot distance between you and the person that might be near you. You want to allow the air around each person the opportunity to stay free from droplets that might be hanging in the air. There are also some people that are in quarantine and they are supposed to stay home and not leave the house for around two weeks. If everyone does their part the spread of the virus will slow and eventually the health workers will get ahead of it and have ways to treat and care for the patients that are infected. During these uncertain times, there are some things that you do not want to stop doing. You want to make sure that you keep up with friends and family, shop for food when necessary and you need to keep your family safe while staying at home. Some of the services that you rely on are necessary and are needed if you want to stay safe. A-Tex Pest Management has what you can do to keep pests out during social distancing and quarantine.
Declutter & Maintain Landscaping to Discourage Pests
One of the activities that people are out and doing more while they are home is yard work. There are lots of hours to kill in a day and the weather is nice out so yard work is a great way to kill some time. This has two added benefits to your home. One is that you are increasing your overall curb appeal and the look of your home increases. You are also reducing the areas that pests are using to hide and to use to gain access to your house. The debris can be the leaves that have fallen from the trees, or the dirt that has blown up and under the edge of the house. The more you keep this type of debris from around your house the more likely it will be that pests do not have a place to hide and live.
Pick Up Unsanitary Trash that Attracts Pests
Now that more and more people are home and spending time in the house the amount of trash that you are creating will increase as well. When it comes to trash it is one of the things that attracts more and more pests. Your trash is all that a pest needs to survive by finding scraps of food and crumbs. You want to make sure that your trash is taken out at the end of each day and that you have them in a trash bag that can be placed in a trash bin.
