Cottages are a great destination getaway, regardless of whether they're on a beach or a lake. However, cottages are less enjoyable when you notice you have a few unexpected visitors - pests. These unwanted guests can cause serious problems at a cottage while you're away, from littering your floors with crumbs to inhabiting every part of your home. Consider these tips to avoid this situation in your cottage.

Keep food away

Most people have cottages as a second home that they visit a few times a year, so it's uncommon for you to always have a fully stocked fridge. However, you may have other kinds of food in the house that doesn't perish as quickly, such as grain-related products and dry snacks. If you forgot to seal this food up before you left, you're asking pests to come invade your cottage, Cottage Tips noted. After each stay, make sure that all crumbs have been vacuumed up and all food has been placed in airtight containers, such as those made from glass or metal. Wipe down all your counters and surfaces to get rid of any residual substances from meals, such as spilt juice. Eliminating any trace of food will highly reduce your chances of a pest infestation.

Seal tightly

Before you lock the place up each year, look for any new holes, cracks or crevices that may have developed over time, Insurance Hotline stated. Pests use these areas of natural wear and tear to access homes and get cozy. Fill even the smallest of openings with steel wool or caulk them to keep out small rodents and insects. Look on both the outside of your home and inside, as some pests can gnaw their way through to make a convenient tunnel.

Consider dehumidifiers

Pests have a tendency to do well in moist environments, especially those that use humidity to their advantage, such as silverfish and carpenter ants. If your cottage sits near a body of water, it may accumulate moisture fairly quickly. Luckily, a dehumidifier can help take away some of this and keep your home dry. Some areas of the home, such as the basement or the attic, tend to be prone to moisture more than the kitchen might. Place dehumidifiers in these parts of the cottage first to see if moisture is reduced.

Landscape wisely

Keep all trees, bushes and other shrubs away from your home. Placing vegetation directly next to your home is an inviting way for pests to crawl from the plants onto your house. Instead, regularly trim foliage back to prevent bridges from being built.
