Firstly, check your home for foundation cracks, gaps in pipes and electrical wiring. These small bugs can slip in through cracks and crevices on the outside of your house. Therefore, the cracks must be sealed using coarse steel wool, copper mesh, or any other material to prevent pests from entering your property this way.


Another way to keep the bugs and pests away is through regular cleaning of your home. Because pests are continuously on the hunt for food and water sources. Moreover, clean up crumbs and spills as soon as possible. Air filters should be replaced once a month, and upholstery should be thoroughly cleaned once a year.

Proper disposal of waste is also one the ways to keep the bugs and rodents away. Exposed trash can attract not only flies, but also rodents, as well as stray cats and dogs. Therefore, make sure that the lids on your garbage cans are secure, and don’t overfill them.

Do not let the drains get blocked with food or drinks that we pour down. Because this can provide the ideal breeding environment for pests. Moreover, try cleaning the drain pipes every once in a while.

Using pest control measures on a regular basis can reduce your risk of having pests in your house and will almost certainly prevent an infestation. Therefore, one should always try to keep the home clean and look for cracks to be filled before this time of the year comes.
