3 Ways to Prevent Pests in Your Home
Mosquito control is important both indoors and outdoors. Most people think of mosquitoes as outdoor annoyances, but did you know that mosquitoes also like to build their nests indoors? It’s true! Mosquitoes can quickly go from being an outdoor annoyance to an indoor hazard when they decide to make themselves comfortable in your home. Here are a few ways you can help keep mosquitoes and other pests away.
#1. Keep Out-of-the-Way Spaces Clean
Indoors and outdoors, mosquitoes love to make their homes in damp, dark places. Indoors, these places can include underneath sinks, leaky utility closets, and underneath appliances such as washing machines. Be sure to make these places a part of your regular maintenance routine and don’t neglect to give them a quick cleaning. Mosquitoes aren’t the only pests that like to hide in areas like these, centipedes and woodlice also love these spots!
#2. Keep Doors Closed and Sealed
Many pests, including mosquitoes, get into your home because of open doors, or because of improperly sealed doors. Be sure to keep doors closed during the summer months when it can be tempting to leave them open. Inspect your doors to ensure that they are sealed when closed, with no gaps that leave room for pests to sneak through. Hardware stores sell plenty of simple solutions that homeowners can utilize to be sure their doors are sealed tight.
