    How to Get Rid of Pests Before Thanksgiving

    Thanksgiving is a time to gather with family and friends, eat delicious food, and express our appreciation and gratefulness for others’ blessings. Nevertheless, a family-sized dinner of turkey, stuffing, casserole, and pumpkin pie may result in a lot of leftovers and crumbs that bugs find equally enticing. However, without bugs, the celebration could be more appreciated.


    Yes, insects are the number one opponent you will face throughout Thanksgiving. Cockroaches, rodents, ants, and other unpleasant visitors must be expelled before they raise a commotion. Pests are vexing, and allowing them to infiltrate your house when you’re having fun with your loved ones would ruin the occasion. Aside from that, having bugs in the house has repercussions.


    Don’t allow a bug invasion to mar your holiday celebrations. Instead, apply the following pest-prevention measures from Orange County Pest Control’s expert exterminators to eliminate an infestation this Christmas season. Trust us; you’ll be glad you did.

    Keep Your Surrounding Clean

    Cleaning up before, during, and after Thanksgiving meal is essential for avoiding bug invasion. It’s easy to spill sugar, flour, garnish, and other ingredients on the counter and floor while cooking or baking. Sweep up any spilled food and sterilize the entire kitchen to remove any residual odors that may attract bugs. In addition, don’t leave dirty dishes out longer since insects like flies, ants, and insects get drawn to leftover food on plates. After Thanksgiving dinner, rinse your dishes well and place them in the dishwasher.

    Focus on Storage

    Food left open on the countertop or dining table rapidly attracts flies and other pests. Therefore, we recommend using plastic or glass dishware and protecting food with a lid between serves. Furthermore, airtight food storage containers tend to leak smells that attract bugs, ruin good food, or cause an infestation. To avoid this, buy plastic containers with sealed lids to store Thanksgiving leftovers. When everyone has finished eating, neatly stack leftovers in a closed container and keep them in the fridge. Also, open garbage cans and dustbins can draw pests, so invest in bins with latching lids.

    Trim Your Lawns

    Unkempt lawns easily become a pest breeding ground. Worse, pests frequently try to get inside houses after infesting the yards. Therefore, mow your grass, eliminate any weeds that have grown near your property, and trim overgrown shrubs so that their branches do not come into touch with your home’s external walls to help keep your yard and home pest-free. Inspect the perimeter of your house for gaps and cracks in the rooftop or foundation while you’re at it. Also, check for any cracks around windows or doors. Insects, small animals, and rats exploit gaps, fissures, and holes as they access sites looking for refuge or food. So remedy any damage you see before the Christmas season.

    Keep Your Opening Closed

    Pests visit your home because they are hunting for food. When they are in your residence, one of the places they will look is for garbage mounds. Yes, the rubbish you store in your house is a food source for bugs, which is why they will attack it. Cockroaches, ants, rats, and other insects will dig through it in order to survive or carry food back to their nests. Your garbage cans will continually be in disarray due to this, which you do not want.


    To avoid annoying bugs interrupting your Thanksgiving day with your family, dispose of the waste mounds before the big day arrives. If you don’t have time to get rid of the waste, cover the containers securely to keep pests away. Using lids may prevent pests from infiltrating your garbage cans and avoid making a mess.
