There’s nothing like the crisp air and vibrant colors of the fall season. However, when the temperature starts to drop, bugs and pests start looking for a warm place to curl up for the winter. At Progressive Pest Control, we want to make sure that warm place is not your home!
Check out these tips for keeping bugs out of your house this fall in Hoschton, Georgia.
Seal It Up!
Even the best-made houses have vulnerabilities. This fall take a walk through your home and check your weather stripping around all windows and doors. Weather stripping can break down over time, allowing bugs to work their way inside. Replacing old weather stripping is easy to do and can even save you some money on your heating bill.
Screen Your Vents
Open vents are necessary for venting hot air from your dryer and attic, but they’re also a nice opening for bugs to get through. Blocking your open vents with a screen will let air out and stop bugs from getting in.
Nothing attracts bugs more than a mess. Crumbs on the counters or scraps of food on the kitchen floor, no matter how small, might as well be a dinner bell on a megaphone for pests. Keeping your home (and especially your kitchen) clean should go a long way to keeping the bugs away.
