- Store Food Properly – Pests are going to try hard to get into your food, so it’s important you store your food properly. Before the food even enters your storage area, you should inspect it to make sure no pests are coming in with it. Furthermore, it’s vital that you use airtight storage containers made of plastic that are stored at the right temperature and off the floor.
- Keep Everything Clean – Having crumbs, spills, and food waste out in the open attracts pests. Whenever you have a mess in your kitchen, you should be cleaning it up as soon as possible. Furthermore, everything should be thrown away in a trash can with a tight cover that is emptied and cleaned as often as possible.
- Don’t Invite Pests Indoors – Leaving doors open too long, having hole in your walls, and not investing in door seals are just a few of the ways that pests will enter your kitchen area. If you have a pest problem, you should inspect your kitchen area for any opening that these troublesome creatures can get into.
