Keeping Your Home Pest-Free

Pests in the home can turn into a major headache for homeowners. Not only are they a nuisance, gnawing rodents and chewing termites can eventually cause real damage to the structure of your home. Unfortunately, when this damage happens, it’s usually not covered by your homeowners insurance policy.

The warmer weather means the insects, rodents and other pests will be out and about, in search of new sources of food and shelter.

However, with preventive maintenance and a little vigilance, you can make your house more difficult to breach and protect your investment. Follow our series on pest control to learn how.
