Preparing for Spring Bugs and Insects
Spring may evoke a confusing mix of emotions toward the elusive season. On one hand, it is marked by rejuvenation and growth, sprouting flowers and the return of green leaves. On the other, Spring is the season of allergies and a promise of warmer weather that is often ruined by rain. It is a unique time of year and one for which bugs and insects have a particular preference. Prepare your home for their impending Spring invasion with simple preventative tactics.
- Take a lesson from Better Housekeeping and tidy up! Spring cleaning is not only for your peace of mind. It can be useful for keeping bugs and insects away too. These tiny critters are in search of shelter and moisture and your clutter is the perfect find. So, clean out your closets of unused items, rid your recycling bin of old newspapers, boxes, cans etc. and clean windows and screens. Replace what you need in order to keep your house as clean as possible.
- Embrace your inner sleuth and defend your house against intruders. Search outside of your home for cracks and holes in the foundation. Seal any that you might find so to assure that sneaky bugs and insects won’t find their way inside.
- Take to the kitchen: a likely place for bugs and insects to commune for a snack. Rid your counters and cooking spaces of any pest-attracting food sources.
Your unwanted house guests are likely to be on the search this Spring for shelter and moisture. And your home is their prized dwelling place. It is important that you take every measure to defend your house against these critters in this upcoming season.
