Keeping Pests Out Of Your Gutters… Looking at you, mosquitos.

Nobody wants their gutters to become a cozy home for insects, birds, or rodents. So, in this blog post, we’re sharing some tips on how to keep them out of your gutters and maintain a healthy system.

  1. Remove Debris Regularly

One of the most effective ways to deter pests from making your gutters their new residence is to keep them clean and free of debris. Debris such as leaves, twigs, and even dirt can create an ideal environment for pests to settle in. Make it a habit to regularly inspect your gutters for debris, especially after storms or heavy winds. Use a scoop or your gloved hands to remove leaves, sticks, and any other debris that might be blocking the flow.

  1. Rinse Out Your Gutters

Cleaning your gutters isn’t just about removing solid debris; it’s also crucial to ensure that the gutter channels are clear of dirt and mud. Rinsing them out is an effective way to ensure proper water flow. Use a garden hose with a spray nozzle attachment to rinse out your gutters. Start at the end farthest from the downspout and work your way toward it.


  1. Install Gutter Guards

Gutter guards are an excellent addition to your gutter system to keep pests and debris at bay. These guards act as a physical barrier, preventing leaves and other objects from entering the gutters while still allowing water to flow through.Contact us to install gutter guards tailored to your gutter system.
