The weather may still be unpredictable in early spring, but that shouldn’t stop you from diving into your spring cleaning routine! Not only does spring cleaning help freshen up your home and prepare for the warmer months ahead, but it also plays a crucial role in preventing pest problems from taking over. You can create a clean and pest-free environment for you and your family by tackling those neglected areas.

To stay ahead of any potential pest issues, here are some spring-cleaning tips to keep in mind:


  • Remove any standing water in your yard, as this is a breeding ground for mosquitoes. Empty any buckets, flower pots, or bird baths holding water.
  • Trim back any overgrown bushes or trees to prevent rodents from nesting in your yard. Keep your grass cut short to eliminate hiding spots for rodents.
  • Check for any holes or cracks in your outdoor structures that may be entry points for bees or termites. Seal up any openings with caulk or mesh to prevent these pests from getting in.
  • Inspect your wooden structures for signs of termites.
  • Clean up food scraps or spills regularly from outdoor eating areas to avoid attracting pests. Also, use a secure lid on your trash cans to keep rodents out.


  • Seal any cracks or openings in walls, floors, and windows to prevent ants and mice from sneaking in.
  • Keep all food stored in airtight containers to eliminate temptations for pests.
  • Regularly clean and sanitize countertops, floors, and cabinets to remove crumbs or spills that may attract ants and mice.
  • Check for any water leaks and fix them promptly to prevent termites from being attracted to moisture.
  • Dispose of garbage promptly and tightly seal trash cans to avoid attracting pests.
  • Use natural repellents like peppermint oil or vinegar to deter pests from entering your kitchen.


  • Deep clean your bathroom regularly, paying special attention to corners, under the sink, and behind the toilet.
  • Seal cracks or crevices where bugs can enter, such as around pipes and baseboards.
  • Keep your bathroom dry and well-ventilated to prevent moisture-loving pests from taking up residence.
  • Declutter your bathroom and regularly check for any signs of infestation to catch any problems early on.


  • Start by decluttering and organizing your attic or basement to eliminate hiding spots for pests.
  • Seal any cracks or openings where pests could enter your home, such as around windows, doors, and vents.
  • Use storage containers with tight-fitting lids to store items instead of cardboard boxes that can attract pests.
  • Vacuum and sweep regularly to remove dust and debris that pests can use as nesting material.
  • Consider installing screens on windows and vents to prevent pests from entering your home.
