Home Pest Control with Spring Cleaning

The warming spring temperatures don’t just bring flowers and more sunlight. Pests like ants, cockroaches, and spiders become more active and start looking for food, water, and shelter. Unfortunately, your home is the perfect place for them to establish their nests.

To prevent a pest infestation this season, these spring cleaning tips will prepare your home against the problems cockroaches, spiders, and ants can cause.


Of all the rooms in the house, the kitchen is the most vulnerable to pests looking for food, water, and hiding spots, such as ants or cockroaches. Your efforts to protect this room will go a long way to prevent pests from invading your home.

Look through the cupboards and pantry for spoiled and expired food and wash everything to keep them from attracting roaches and ants. Take everything out of the cabinet under the sink. Since damage could attract pest problems, check for leaks, water damage, and stains from soaps or cleaning chemicals if you keep them there.

Clean inside and around all the kitchen appliances and check for pest activity. Pay close attention to the stove, oven, dishwasher, and refrigerator for water leaks, damage, and grime. The sink and dishwasher can be especially susceptible to water damage, so repair any problems you find.

With a drain cleaner, clean all the food waste and other leftovers from the sink to keep it from attracting ants, flies, roaches, and other pests.


Water leaks and similar damage can be a huge concern, not only for pest management but also for home repair. Check around the toilet, shower, and tub to make sure there are no leaks and that they seal properly to the floor. Use caulking to fix any damages there.

Wash every surface in the bathroom. Cockroaches can eat anything, including hair, so be sure to clean it up if you find it. Hair, soap scum, and other grime can get clogged in the sink, shower, and tub, so use a drain cleaner to keep cockroaches and flies from eating or living in it. Gross, but true.

Just like the kitchen sink, remove everything from the bathroom sink cabinet and check for stains, leaks, and water damage while you clean.


Typically dark and cold year-round, basements are great places for spiders and rodents to nest. Especially since basements are often used as storage spaces, any clutter there can be great hiding places for all sorts of pests.

Use plastic containers with lids to declutter and organize the basement. Cardboard boxes are easy for rodents to chew through, and many spiders love living inside them, so avoid using them if you can.

We had a wonderful experience with our technician. Weston was easy to talk to and explained everything well. Josh, who sold us the service, was very kind also. Not pushy at all. And very informative. Thank you. We look forward to working with you in the future.

My experience with Fox Pest Control has been the best experience I had with a pest control company. Technician, Harry, did a good job of going over the process thoroughly, ensure that I understood everything going on. I would recommend them to anyone looking for good, quality, fast, friendly, and affordable pest control services.
