How to Keep Your Home Pest-Free During Holiday Travels

Whether you're using up some extra PTO or visiting family, the holiday season contains a fair amount of travel. In addition to packing for your trip, it's important to prepare your home. This includes locking doors and windows, setting any security systems you may have, and making sure your home can stay pest-free.

If you live in a colder climate, you may think that cold weather equals no pests. But, as we've discussed before, pests are just as likely (if not more) to sneak into your home during cold months. Below are our top tips to keep your home pest-free while you travel.

Preparing Your Home For Holiday Travel

Above all, pests love food and shelter. Even if you're the "pack-the-morning-of" type of person, taking the time to ensure your home is prepared for travel can save you time, frustration, and money in the future.

Before you embark on your journey, do the following:

  • Wash and dry any dishes
  • Sweep up any crumbs
  • Mop any spills
  • Take out any trash and recycling
  • Empty out any soon-to-spoil food from the fridge
  • Use or store produce
  • Properly seal any pantry goods
  • Hang any damp laundry
  • If you have pets, make sure their food is sealed.

By taking the above steps, you greatly reduce the chance of pests sneaking into your home and making it their own.

Keeping a Pest Free Home While Away

When it comes to pest removal options, it can seem bleak. Chemical pest options require proper ventilation – which could mean leaving your windows open while you're away, which can lead to all sorts of problems. The best way to keep your home pest-free is by using ultrasonic pest repellers. They work by emitting high-frequency sound waves that are inaudible to humans and pets but drive out and deter pests like rodents and insects. No open windows, no evacuating your home for hours, no worries – they are a safe, non-toxic, and environmentally friendly way to keep your home pest-free.

Reliable, Non-Toxic Pest Solutions

With ultrasonic repellers, you're opting for a solution that's safe, non-toxic, and environmentally friendly. And the best part? You just plug them in and let them work their magic — no more dealing with those nasty bug sprays or cruel mousetraps.

You can rest easy knowing your home is protected against pests by purchasing ultrasonic pest repellers from Ever Pest. Check out our selection today and protect your space from unwanted intruders.
