Top Tips for Pest-Free Holiday Baking
Holidays means cookies! Flour and cookie sheets are bound to appear. The smell of sweets in the kitchen puts the family in the holiday spirit. But if your food isn’t properly sealed, your festivities might come to a screeching halt. When food isn’t stored correctly, it attracts pests. If left unchecked, a small problem can turn into an infestation.
There are a lot of types of pests that would be attracted to a bag that is open filled with sugar. Mice, Ants, Cockroaches, Indian Meal Moths and Merchant Grain Beetles……just to name a few. Some of these pests are pretty harmless, but will spoil food and cut short your plans to make a batch of cookies. Mice and cockroaches carry diseases and are triggers for asthma and allergies.
To keep your food fresh and safe, incorporate a few of these simple habits when dealing with groceries: Cave Creek Safe Pest Control AZ
Inspect the Food
Pests are creative. When it comes to getting in our home, they can hitchhike in on or in the grocery bags that were placed on the ground during transport. Inspect bags before bringing them inside. Look over the packages of the items before purchasing them at the store. If a package is opened or looks like it is damaged, do not purchase it.
Purchase Proper Storage
If you invest in Tupperware that has secure lids, this helps a lot in keeping food fresh and safe. It’s a great way also to keep your pantry organized. Anything that is made with plastic or glass works really well, as long as it comes with a tight fitting lid. Cave Creek Safe Pest Control AZ
