Thanksgiving is the time to gather and get caught up on lost time and to share a delicious food. Usually, the table invites guests with a spread of food, including turkey, stuffing and all the fixins. Unfortunately, household pests may ruin the this special time. Creatures like ants, spiders, and fleas can create havoc at and around your dinner table and favorite nap chair. At Valley Pest Solutions, we want to make sure that your special feast is enjoyable. Here are some helpful tips that will keep pests from ruining your Thanksgiving feast.
Don’t Let Leftovers Linger
After your Thanksgiving meal, it is common to leave leftovers on the counter. However, it is essential to make sure that they are wrapped tightly or placed in covered containers. Ants and roaches are drawn to open food. If you want to avoid issues with these pests, do not leave leftovers open and laying around the kitchen.
Take Out the Trash
When you allow your trash to stack up in your house this can attract ants and roaches. It is best to take your trash outside in a sealed bag or container and to place it in the trash can and keep that trash lid closed. Because once outside now there is the possibility of not only attracting the roaches and ants but now rats and mice and other unwanted guests, such as opossums, raccoons and stray cats. And almost all of these bring fleas to the party.
Thanksgiving is a time to enjoy family and friends.
