bug2The cold temperatures of fall and winter drive bugs to stay warm inside of our homes. While we can’t disagree that Las Vegas winters are far from brutal, the drop in temperature still drives common pests to find a place where they are better prepared to deal with the change. Rather than open our doors to these little guys, we strongly suggest finding ways that you can prepare to keep these pests out of your home. We’ve compiled a few ways that we have found to provide great success stories when it comes to minimizing the amounts of pests in your home.

Seal The Cracks

While the temperatures are just now starting to cool down, you can spend your free time caulking any cracks that you find in the exterior of your home. This is one of the easiest and most common ways for pests to make their way into your home. Another great place to check for cracks is by your window. Make sure these spaces are all sealed so that even the smallest pests are kept outside.

Clean Up A Little

Spring cleaning is something that is pretty commonly known, and while fall cleaning isn’t necessarily a thing in itself, it isn’t a bad idea.When you declutter your home and do some light cleaning, you’re able to find the areas of your home where pests are already making homes. This gives you ample time to remove the pests but also makes it easier to find the parts of your home that need to be sealed.
