The last thing that you want to see when you visit your storage unit is some unexpected visitors like rodents and insects. Not only are they unpleasant to come across, they can also wreak havoc on your stored items. So, how can you keep the creepy crawlies out of your mini-storage unit?

First of all, and most importantly, you should never store food items in your storage unit. Even if they are canned items and sealed tightly, food is the number one way to attract unwanted visitors to your storage unit. Save these items for your pantry or a cellar in your home.

It’s also best to use airtight storage containers. Cardboard boxes deteriorate over time and make it easier for rodents and pests to get into your stored items and destroy them.

You can also take preventative measures to keep bugs and pests out before they can ever get in. Find areas where bugs are likely to enter in the unit and spray them with bug spray, or you can use a few drops of peppermint oil as a natural pest deterrent.

When you visit your storage unit, keep an eye out for any evidence of a pest invasion like holes in boxes, cobwebs, and droppings. If you see any signs, take steps immediately to address the issue before it gets out of hand. Even if you don’t see signs of any pests, it’s important to regularly clean your storage unit to prevent these insects and rodents from showing up.

Don’t let the creepy crawlies into your mini-storage unit. With a few simple steps, you can prevent unwanted visitors from taking residence in your storage unit.
