How to Keep Pests Out of the Kitchen


During the holidays, the kitchen is the heart of the home. As the weather gets colder, bugs and other pests will certainly take safety – and food – in your house. Here are some ideas on how to keep your kitchen pest-free.

Store Where It’s Cold

If you can store it in the refrigerator or freezer, do so. Rodents can chew through plastic, paper, and cardboard, but getting to your groceries in the fridge is much more difficult.

Take Out the Trash

For bugs and other rodents, a complete trash can is an all-you-can-eat buffet. Never leave an overflowing rubbish bin in your kitchen for more than a day. To keep pests at bay, take it out as soon as it’s whole.

Clean Your Dishes Immediately

Food left out overnight will attract a variety of bugs searching for a late-night snack. After each use, clean your dishes thoroughly and place them in your dishwasher/dishrack. After doing the dishes, a simple wipe-down of your kitchen cabinets will help ensure there are no crumbs left out to attract pests.
