Pests In Your Garage? What You Can Do

Your garage may be where you store your things and your cars, but it's still not where you want pests to be hiding. They can get into just about anything, so if you have things stored that you don't want to be chewed, eaten, or damaged in any way, you need to do something about these pests. If you have pests in your garage, and your garage is close to your home, you could eventually have these pests coming into your home as well. Read on for tips to help you get rid of pests if you have them in your garage.

1. Put Fertilizers And Seeds Away

If you store fertilizer, grass seed and other seeds in your garage, you need to put them away. These need to be stored properly in air-tight containers to prevent pests such as rodents and ants from getting inside. Other pests may also be trying to get into your garage if there is food available to them. These are to be considered food for some pests, so be sure you put these away properly. 

2. Keep Organized

Keep your garage organized and remove things that are no longer of use to you. Staying organized is going to help protect your belongings from getting damaged by pests. Keep belongings up and off of the garage floor. Keep your belongings on shelves, or hang them up with hooks. Toss out old boxes, which can attract roaches, rodents, ants and even termites. Do some cleaning in your garage and remove anything that is no longer needed.

3.  Set Traps

Set traps and lay out baits to trap and kill pests that may already be in your garage. Use ant traps, mouse traps, and baits such as borax powder mixed with jelly, or diatomaceous earth to get rid of any pests that are living in your garage. Be sure to put these baits and traps where you've spotted signs of pests. Some signs include damage to your belongings, feces, dead pests or living pests, as well as nesting material.

If you have pests in your garage, you need to do something about them to prevent a worsening issue with these pests, as well as damage to your belongings stored in your garage. If you are having a problem getting rid of these pests, consider hiring a pest control company for help to get rid of the pests you have and to prevent future issues with pests as well.
