Clean Your Home Regularly
Pests love dirty, messy places to hide, and if you aren’t cleaning your home regularly, your home will become more attractive to invading pests.
Make sure to regularly:
- Vacuum your carpets to help eliminate pests and eggs
- Clean your counters to prevent food buildup
- Remove clutter around your home to prevent pests from setting up nests
- Fix any leaking pipes, faucets, and appliances to prevent standing water
Fill Any Cracks
Pests are often quite small, meaning that any crack in your home can serve as an entrance to an invading horde of bugs. You should inspect your home or office for any cracks in walls, vents, or the foundation and seal them as soon as possible.
