  • Debris: Rake organic debris up and away from your exterior.
  • Wood: Move stacked wood, dead branches, and other sources of wood away from your exterior.
  • Lawn: Remove lawn clutter, particularly objects that are near your exterior.
  • Trim: Trim your landscape plants to allow the air to easily move through your plants, and to remove hiding places for pests.
  • Gutters: Clean your gutters out and make sure rainwater is being channeled down and away from your home.
  • Garbage: Put garbage in a covered container and make sure you get your containers out to the curb every week. If you don’t, be sure to clean and deodorize your containers to remove odors that attract pests.
