Whether it’s ants, mosquitos, cockroaches, or spiders, no one likes discovering they have a pest problem in their home. And, while you can’t prevent every single pest from getting inside, there are steps you can take to help keep them away.

Block their entry – Because many pests are tiny, it’s easy for them to enter your home through small holes, gaps, and cracks. Inspect and repair problem areas such as torn screens, worn weather stripping, and any damage to your home’s exterior.

Keep your kitchen clean – There’s no denying that food attracts bugs. Therefore, it’s important to make sure you keep your counters and floors crumb free, avoid leaving dirty dishes in the sink, and take your trash out regularly.

Remove standing water – Not only do mosquitoes thrive in Florida’s warm and humid weather, but they also breed in standing water. Walk your property on a regular basis to check for any areas that may be collecting water. Look at things such as plant saucers, rain spouts, your air conditioning unit, trampoline spring cover, or toys laying around in the yard.

Maintain your yard – Pests love to make their home in overgrown vegetation. Trim back bushes and tree branches near your house as well as clean up any unnecessary debris.

Hire a pest control company – By having a pest control company regularly spray around the inside and outside of your home, you have a much better chance of winning the fight against bugs.
