Keep your house pest, rodent-free during holidays
There’s still time to do some last minute preparation around the house to keep unwanted guests out for the holidays.
Exterminators say this is a busy time for them as many households see more ants and rodents.
If you're hosting for the holidays, be sure to take your trash out away from the house as soon as it gets full and quickly clean up spills.
To keep rodents away, experts say sealing any holes or pipes that could be entry ways can make a big difference.
"If you have a lot of trees and all of this around the home they’ll go up the tree, out on a limb and they [will find] that one little spot and if they can get their nose in there and get started, they'll gnaw and craw until they get in there," said Service Center Manage for Arrow Exterminators Ben Tallent.
Tallent also recommends keeping food and decorations in air tight containers and if your breaking out any old decorations, be sure to shake them off outside first.
