Are there ways to prevent having the pests in the first place?

Prevention is always better than the cure. Along with the information on each pest profile, we include tips for prevention and control. Our easy to follow recommendations may help you to avoid or minimize pest problems.

Pests seek habitats that provide their essential needs for survival, such as food, water, and shelter. By removing some of these basic elements, or by blocking access to them, one can impose a significant degree of control over pests well before chemical pesticides need to be considered.

Take some simple preventative measures:

  • Pests are usually looking for food. Keeping your kitchen and eating areas clean gives pests one less reason to raid your home;
  • Store all trash in bins with a lid and remove trash on a regular basis;
  • Ensure that your screened doors and windows are in good repair;
  • Keep branches and foliage trimmed and away from the house. Very often pests enter the home from plants, trees and shrubs;
  • Repair siding, exterior trim and decks at the first sign of deterioration' and
  • Regular cleaning, sweeping, vacuuming and dusting doesn't necessarily detract pests from coming into your home, but it does train your eye to look for potential problems in the dark corners of your house.

What is Integrated Pest Management (IPM)?

IPM is an ecosystem-based strategy that focuses on long-term prevention of pests or their damage through a combination of techniques such as biological control, habitat manipulation, modification of cultural practices, and use of resistant varieties

IPM is a combination of common sense and scientific principles. It's a way of thinking about pest management that values:

  • Using the least toxic methods first, up to and including pesticides
  • Monitoring the pest's activity and adjusting methods over time
  • Tolerating harmless pests, and
  • Setting a threshold to decide when it's time to act

To learn more about IPM, choose from the following topics:

If you are just getting started with your pest problem, think about these questions and do some research about the pest.

  • What type of pest are you dealing with?
  • How are they getting in? How can I keep them out?
  • Do they live in the house all of the time, or do they come and go?
  • What are they eating and drinking?
  • How can I make my home less friendly to pests?
  • How can I keep track of their activity to see if my strategy is working?

To prevent future problems, consider taking steps to pest-proof your home.

  • Inspect your home inside and out looking for pests, food, water and entry points.
  • Fix any leaky hoses, faucets or pipes; pests need water.
  • Fix any holes in your window screens, and consider installing door-sweeps.
  • Plug entry points, even the tiny ones, with caulk, wire mesh, etc.
  • Learn about relative humidity, and keep it below 60% indoors, if possible, to prevent mold and help control other pests.

To prevent future pest problems, consider taking some proactive steps to pest-proof your garden:

  • Select the right plants for the location; consider their needs for water and sun.
  • Select disease-resistant varieties when certain diseases keep coming back.
  • Water plants at ground level; wet leaves are more susceptible to disease.
  • Remove dead plant material before spring; it can harbor diseases.
  • Consider testing the soil for nutrients and minerals to plan fertilizer needs.
  • Proper care and watering will produce healthier plants, which are better at resisting diseases and tolerating insects.
  • Inspect your plants regularly in order to detect problems early.
  • Consider asking a master gardener for help identifying and managing pests.

To prevent future problems, consider taking some proactive steps to pest-proof your lawn.

  • Choose a type of grass that thrives in your region and climate.
  • Develop and maintain healthy soil.
  • Mow often with sharp blades and mow high; generally 2.5-3.5 inches high.
  • If dead grass, or thatch, gets thicker than a half-inch, remove it with a rake.
  • Water deep and rarely, rather than short periods that occur more often.
  • Determine how many weeds you can tolerate, and how many you can pull.
