Trying to get rid of pests in your Minneapolis / St Paul (Twin Cities) home?

Here are some of the most common pests that homeowners deal with…

– Termites

– Mice

– Cockroaches

– Wasps

– Mosquitoes

– Rats

– Flies

– Bedbugs

– Ants

– Spiders

Unfortunately, each of those pests can cause damage to your property over time and even create health risks for anyone living there.

But beyond hiring an exterminator to deal with your problem, are there any DIY solutions?

At Trademark Properties, we’ve worked with a lot of home sellers in Minneapolis / St Paul (Twin Cities) with pest-control problems. And these are the tips that we recommend…

Inspect Your Home’s Interior — You might be surprised to learn that mice can squeeze through spaces as small as a dime and rats can enter a space the size of a quarter. Use silicone caulk to block off small entry points. Try stuffing wider gaps with steel wool, which discourages rodents from trying to gnaw their way into your home.

Store Firewood Away From Your Home — Rodents and insects love to create nests in big piles of wood. And your firewood pile is their perfect home. So move the firewood pile at least 20 feet away from the home.

Keep Your Garage Well-Organized — As for any storage areas you have, keep boxes on shelves and well-sealed. Cardboard boxes on the floor are likely to attract pests.

Other Tips — There’s a lot you can do to prevent pests from getting into your home. But if the problem is already out of control, it might be time to hire a professional exterminator. Alternatively, you might consider selling your home as-is fast for cash so you don’t have to worry about it. At Trademark Properties, we can make you a fair cash offer, close in as little as two weeks, and we’ll even pay closing costs. Give us a call at 612-594-5097 to learn more!
