Seal and repair openings/cracks

Check your walls, ceiling and external roof for cracks and gaps, especially where pipes exit through the wall. Such areas are likely to have invitingly large cracks for bugs.

Give your pets their own eating space

Pet food knocked out of dishes end up across the room and attracted ants. Let your pets eat on a rubber mat. This makes spilled food easier to spot and clean up. If you have an ant problem with pet food left on the floor, put the food bowl into a larger bowl with water in it, as the ants cannot cross the water to get to the food.

Keep a clean kitchen

Just about every unwanted pest is attracted to leftover bits of food:

  • Keep all leftovers stored in lidded containers.
  • Check for sugar spills near the coffee maker.
  • Wipe residue off containers containing sugary stuff.
  • Keep fruit out of direct sunlight.
  • Vacuum or sweep regularly.
  • Rinse containers before putting them in the bin.

Keep a dry home

Insects love damp environments, so eliminate moisture and wet spots. To do so, start by applying caulk to fix leaks around tubs and sinks. In your basement, check for stains because indicate dripping pipes, and inspect above for cracks or loose fittings.

Clean up the yard

Insects are likely to populate under grass clippings, compost heaps and decaying leaves. Clean up pet poop, and keep trash bins and compost heaps securely covered and away from your house.
