Fall Pest Prevention Tips For Colorado Springs Homeowners

Ready or not, they’re coming! With daily high temperatures decreasing this month, it won’t be long before fall pests are on the move in Colorado Springs, Denver, and NoCo. If you’ve not got your home sealed up and your yard in order, you might end up sharing your space with uninvited guests over the winter. With that in mind, let’s talk about pest prevention, also known as pest-proofing.

Common fall pests in Colorado

While there are lots of insects and a couple of rodents to be wary of during the autumn season, below are three common pest problems homeowners in our region should be aware of.

Fall pest prevention tips from EnviroPest

If you want to enjoy the fall season without worrying about insects and rodents crawling around your home and property, check out the pest prevention tips:

  • Seal ALL cracks, gaps, and openings on the exterior
  • Install weather-stripping & door sweeps
  • Keep garage doors closed when not in use
  • Repair or replace torn window screens
  • Clean gutters so that water runs unobstructed and also make sure the downspouts divert water away from the foundation
  • Repair anything that is leaking -whether that’s pipes, exterior faucets, or appliances
  • Store summer toys, gear, and equipment
  • Remove leaves, twigs, and other organic debris
  • Haul away broken lawn mowers, old appliances, and bigger items that don’t fit in the trash
  • Stack firewood at least 20 feet away from the house and up off the ground
  • Trim back tree limbs that touch the roof or other parts of your house

Don’t forget about the inside of your house this fall either. You’ll want to make it inhospitable for pests looking for food, water, and warm shelter. That means keeping your kitchen neat and tidy, running dehumidifiers to eliminate moisture issues, keeping storage closets organized, and being mindful of what you’re bringing inside. While insects and rodents will crawl through the front door or slip through a hole in the foundation, they are also often introduced inside items such as cardboard boxes, groceries, and even used furniture.
