Seal all around the door: Bugs and pests can find a way into your home through even the tiniest crack. That includes your doors!

Install critter proof mesh on vents and in attics and crawl spaces: Attics and crawlspaces are a favorite of all kinds of critters and pests. Raccoons, birds, and squirrels love these warm, safe areas and often make nests. In addition these animals often carry mites and fleas in there fur coats. If these critters get in, so do these damaging pests. Installing critter proof mesh screens around your vents and crawlspaces will keep these spaces free from pests. These animals can be aggressive, and potentially deadly spreading disease and causing severe injury. Please don’t try to remove these animals yourself.
Keep a Tidy Kitchen: Even the smallest crumbs can be a feast for pests. Anywhere there’s easy food and water pests will be there to gorge themselves. Keep your kitchen clean anyway you can. Wipe up crumbs, vacuum regularly, and take care of spills right away. Keeping a clean Kitchen means pests have less food sources, making your home less appealing for them.
