Bug Proof Your Home
Here are some helpful tips for preventing household pests, pest infestations and the potentially dangerous health and property threats they pose.
Maintain good housekeeping.
Dispose of vacuum bags regularly.
Replace air handling filters regularly.
Seal all cracks and holes on the inside of the home including entry points for pipes.
Keep baths and showers well ventilated and dry.
Seal outlets, switch plates and baseboards, as some insects will travel through these.
Keep all foods properly stored, including pet foods. Use plastic containers or plastic bags.
Keep doors closed or properly screened.
Repair torn screening.
Seal all cracks and holes around the outside of the home including entry points for utilities and pipes.
Keep tree branches and shrubbery well trimmed and away from the house.
Keep attics and crawl spaces well ventilated and dry.
Store garbage in sealed containers and dispose of it regularly.
Repair fascia and soffits, if rotted, as some insects are drawn to deteriorating wood.
Replace weather-stripping around doors and windows.
Store fire wood at least 20 feet away from the house and five inches off the ground.
