Your home is an inviting environment for all kinds of little critters, especially in the summer. Ants, spiders, and other creepy crawlers can bring in diseases and scare out guests. For these reasons, it’s important that you protect your home from pests. There are many things that you can do to battle an entomological invasion and avoid household encounters with anything that has six or more legs. Here are a few tips to help you keep your house bugfree:

Seal up Entrances: One way to reduce the number of pests entering your home is by leaving as few entry points as possible. Make sure that closed windows and doors have a good seal and add door sweeps to minimize the gap at your thresholds. Use very fine window screens and caulk gaps around window frames, vents and pipes.

Don’t Leave them Food: Along with other insects, ants are attracted by the smallest bits of food. Make sure you don’t leave food containers open or dirty dishes lying around. Also, be sure to clean up any messes you make on floors, counters, and tables. Unlike humans, bugs hate a clean house.

Go on the Offensive: You can also prevent pests from getting into your house by stopping them before they get in. Gardens, yards, garages and other places are where bugs gather before they enter your home. Hire a pest control experts like Rest Assured Pest Control to spray around your house, create a barrier and get to the bugs before they get to you.
