If you want your home free of pests, start with basic home maintenance.
1. Make sure there is proper drainage around the exterior of your home. Standing, stagnate water will attract pests. Eliminate standing water from the exterior of your home.
2. Caulk around windows, doors, soffits, and any cracks or crevices that insects can crawl through.
3. Maintain a tight seal around the exterior doors in your home. Over time, the sweep on the bottom of the doors can deteriorate.
