The shedding of leaves from trees means that more pests can burrow deep inside those trees and find shelter. From their burrows in fallen leaves, it is a short migration period into business from underneath damaged doors, poorly sealed loading docks, and cracked foundations. From ants to spiders, sow bugs to rodents, they all need to be kept out of your space.
To prevent these pests from entering your space, use these fall pest prevention tips:
keep food stored in covered air-tight containers and ensure that all food scraps are disposed of properly in well-covered dumpsters,
Seal up cracks and crevices in the foundation and exterior siding of your business,
Replace damaged door sweeps and dock seals,
Do not store items like pallets up against the walls of your business, and
Clean up leaves after they fall to prevent nesting sites.
