With all the responsibilities people have in this modern day, it is very easy to forget simple tasks that we can do to prevent our home from being a welcoming environment from little creepy crawly guests. There are ways that you can prevent bugs in general by simply keeping your home clean. If you have carpeting, vacuum regularly because that will be a major help in preventing bed bugs and dust mites. If you have marble or wood floors simply sweep regularly. Also, caulking is key. Cracks and crevices in walls are the number one hiding spots for all types of bugs to retreat and rear young. Sealing all holes and cracks with a mixture of steel wool and caulking compound also helps. Weatherstripping around doors and sealing all windows properly will also be a major help and not to mention it will save energy in your home and lower the cost of the electric bill. Taking out the garbage frequently helps as well. Do not let it fill to the top, and keep it elevated 12 inches from the floor will also help. Do not store lumber or wooden materials near the siding of your home or on the ground in your home. Clean up all debris, cut back all trees and shrubs that come into contact with your home.
