With Autumn right around the corner, homeowners like you have to get ready for a new wave of pests and possible infestations. It’s not pleasant to think about, but keeping unwanted guests out of your home is an issue that must be addressed as the seasons change. To help you prepare, here are four tips to protect your home from fall pests.
Tip #1 - Seal Your Home
Pests don’t need a lot of wiggle room to get inside your home. As the weather begins to turn cold, bugs will try their best to find a new place to stay - and your house is a perfect place for them to set up camp.
Make sure to install weather strips under all the exterior doors in your home. If you have sliding glass doors, confirm that the bottom brushes are in good condition. If they are worn out, replace them immediately. Check out your house’s corners, foundation, windows and roof for cracks that may need sealing up, and consider using insulation as a method of keeping critters from flocking to your home....
