With hurricane season in full swing, many Central Floridians prepare for the next round of storms by stocking up on bottled water and batteries and safeguarding their home. However, there are some extra home maintenance preparations that will not only keep you protected inside, but also keep unwanted pests outside. Because when the next weather event hits the area, you won’t be the only creature looking to hunker down in your home.

Seal Off Access Points
Wildlife seeking shelter from a storm will take advantage of any openings in your home. Check the perimeter of your home for any possible entry points that a critter could use to gain access and seal them off.

Trim Back Trees
Typical home damage during a hurricane is caused by broken branches and fallen trees — trees that could be home to wildlife. This problem can be remedied before the storm hits by cutting off large branches and low hanging limbs.

Clear Potential Debris
Not only can debris around your home become destructive projectiles during a hurricane, but it can also become temporary shelter to all types of critters trying to weather the storm. The last thing you want is for these temporary neighbors to become permanent residents. Be sure to remove yard waste and store away any structures that attract wildlife like birdbaths and bird feeders.

Roof Damage Leaves Openings
After a storm has passed, your home may be even more vulnerable to pest infestation. A damaged roof with punctures, cracks, or missing shingles could offer squirrels, rodents, or other pests an opportunity to seek refuge in your attic. Have any structural damage scheduled for repair quickly before any critters begin to nest.
