Top Tips to Prevent Pests Year-Round
1. Keep a Clean Home to Deter Pests
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 and Windows Shut and Install Screens
Many pests, including mosquitoes and stinging insects, get into your home because of open or 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. In addition, consider installing tight-fitting screens on your windows to keep insects out.
