How To Prevent Infestations

The best way to keep your home safe from bugs and rodents is to find a way to prevent infestations from occurring in the first place. There are steps that we can take which will help to keep the bugs at bay. Unfortunately in some cases no matter how hard we try some will manage to find their way inside.

Keep It Clean

The best thing you can do is to keep your home clean. Don’t allow dirty clothes to pile upon the floor. The wet clothes will cause mildew and will attract bugs who thrive on this. Take five minutes and clean the dirty dishes so that no cockroaches will dine in that night. A few minutes will save you a great deal of problems.

Put Food Up

Bugs do not have a difficult time knowing where the nearest food supply is. Clean your kitchen floor every night to pick up any crumbs that have fallen. Also put up your food and make sure it is sealed. Some people will have their pantries covered in ants because they left bread or cereal uncovered.

Treat Lawns

Many home will have ant piles and other bugs living around their yard. These bugs will have an easy time trying to get inside of the home and before you know it you will have a huge problem on your hand. Purchase the necessary products to treat your yard every season and keep these bugs and rodents at bay.

Weatherproof

Make sure that your home has the proper seals to keep water and bugs out of your home. Sometimes the only thing that brings the bugs into your home is the weather or the rain from outside. Make sure that any holes are patched and the seals on the doors are working properly.
