Ways to Keep Pests Out of Your House

Ways to Keep Pests Out of Your House

Like most, you don’t want a single bug to enter your home. However, you may not have a system in place for protecting your property inside and out.

While every property is different, here are a few things you can do to keep pests out of your house:

1. Find Where They’re Coming From

Inspect the exterior of your home and your yard to better understand where the bugs are coming from. For example, you may find that they’re congregating in a bird feeder or water feature in your yard.

Once you know what’s attracting the bugs, you can then take action to eliminate them.

2. Secure Your Home

Bugs don’t knock at the front door if they want in. Instead, they seek out easy points of entry.

Inspect the exterior of your home for these entry points. Common trouble spots include:

  • Pipes
  • Vents
  • Chimneys
  • Windows
  • Roof shingles

Don’t be surprised if you come upon an entry point that’s bigger than you thought.

3. Keep Your Home Clean

Many types of bugs gravitate toward messes, such as food crumbs on your patio or the interior of your home.

Keeping your home clean is one of the best ways to reduce the number of pests. Here are some tips to follow:

  • Vacuum all surfaces at least once a week
  • Keep crumbs off the ground and counters, both inside and out
  • Keep your trash covered at all times
  • Make sure all food containers are sealed
