Be it inside or out, clutter can attract bugs to your home. Piles of books, toys, cinderblocks and so forth can provide shelter to insects. Help nip bugs in the bud by tidying up your home both inside and outside.
CRACKS IN FOUNDATION:
If your foundation has any cracks at all, then you may have just given bugs an entryway into your home. Regularly inspect the foundation of your house and properly caulk any cracks or crannies that could provide bugs with an access route to the inside.
You can help keep bugs out of the house by fixing any leaks or drips and filling in areas susceptible to puddles. Some pests such as earwigs love cool damp areas. Making sure there’s no areas of standing water in your yard is an effective way to help keep mosquitoes away, in addition to other bugs.
TREE AND SHRUB PRUNING:
As mentioned before pests LOVE clutter. When trees and shrubs are against your home your creating paradise for all pests. It keeps the side of your home cool and damp, attracting earwigs and other creepy crawlers. Carpenter ants might infest a tree and follow the branch right to your home. Close shrubs also give spiders a chance to create webs going from your home to the landscape. Practice good pruning habits or have EnviroTurf do fall trimming.
