Your April Maintenance Tip!

With spring comes small pests you don’t want in your home. Remember, insects sneak in through wall and floor cracks, utility openings and under doors. Keep out these uninvited guests by:

  • installing door sweeps or thresholds at the base of every doorway;
  • sealing utility openings where wires and pipes enter the home from outside;
  • using silicone or acrylic latex caulk to repair cracks around doors and windows; and
  • installing wire mesh or hardware cloth over the attic, roof and any crawl space vents.

Don’t forget the dark, neglected areas around the house are beloved hiding places for insects. Pay special attention to:

  • corners of the garage (clear out spider webs as often as possible);
  • closets (check inside shoes stored on the floor);
  • behind large appliances (sweep away food crumbs and cob webs); and
  • under beds (use for limited storage only and keep food out).

You may also consider planting native flowers and shrubs to distract pests. Large trees encourage birds and bats to prey on insects around the exterior of the home. Keep them distracted outside to make sure they don’t end up inside your home!
