How to maintain a pest free premises in the winter months?

Its all too easy to let our standards slip in the cold winter months. Its a pain to take those bulging full bin liners down the slippy path to the wheelie bin especially when its raining!

But unless we want to encourage our friend below to sniff out spilt waste we need to follow some simple guidelines for the holiday season and into the new year

1. Dispose of waste food correctly in sealed/plugged bins

2. Keep doors closed wherever possible and use windows for ventilation

3. Remove any source of potential housing or harbourage from external areas

4. Report sightings of rats and mice to your pest control supplier
