Perform regular house checks. If you eliminate the entryway for pests, then it’s harder for them to get in and get cozy in your home. Make sure to seal up even the tiniest openings and eliminate any excess water. Some areas we recommend checking, are:
- Check your door frames for any holes or cracks,
- Check your screens for rips
- Check for cracks in your foundation
- Fix leaking pipes
- Check roof drains for excess water buildup
Keep the yard and home clean. Keep the home tidy, to avoid actually feeding your pests with crumbs, dirty dishes, or trash. Same thing goes for the outside of your home, too. Make sure to seal up the trash and recycling. It’s also important to store firewood away from the house, because wood piles can provide shelter for unwanted pests. That is also a great reason to keep your bushes and trees trimmed.
