Protect Your Home From Bugs

Unless they’re paying rent, bugs and rodents have no place under or inside your home. Not only do they pose a health risk to you and your family, their nesting habits could seriously affect the foundations of your home. In this post, Members Settlement Services, LLC has some easy to follow tips to protect the value of your home from pests.

How to Prevent Bugs From Getting Inside

It only takes the smallest opening for bugs to make their way inside and make themselves at home. Carefully inspect the seals around your doors and windows for any cracks or damaged areas that could allow bugs to intrude. Utilizing weather stripping around your doors and windows can be a great help with keeping out unwanted pests, whilst adding a simply ‘door snake’ can add an extra layer of protection.

Maintain Your Yard and Irrigation

The conditions of your yard play a heavy part in the accumulation of bugs around your home. Inspect the irrigation through your lawn and garden to ensure there are no areas where water can collect and become stagnant, especially around the foundations of your home. These areas promote the ideal space for mosquitos and bugs to congregate, leading them closer to your home. In addition, be sure to keep your plants and trees neatly trimmed, so as not to flow over into your home or porchways. Plants that reach inside your home or onto your front porch can provide the perfect bridge for insects to use to take up residence inside your home.
