Very few people like the thought of having bugs in the house. To many, it is totally unacceptable and will not be tolerated. Besides calling a professional exterminator, there are some things you, the homeowner, can do to keep bugs out of the house. Number one…Use caulking and weather-stripping to seal all cracks and crevices where bugs can get inside. This includes gaps and openings around door thresholds, windowsills, pipes, vents, louvers and eaves. Two…keep garbage cans secured with tight-fitting lids and don’t leave pet food out overnight. And three…keep your landscape well-manicured and don’t allow ivy and other plants and weeds to grow up on the side of the house. And don’t be afraid to call a professional pest control company for help if you need it.
