Keeping Your Home Bug Free

5/17/2017 (Permalink)

“Before you go after your bugs, you have to know what they're after. Some bugs, such as ants, hunt for overlooked crumbs on your floor and countertops. Moths like to munch on your sweaters. Silverfish like to go through a good book, but not the way you do. And some bugs, like fleas and mosquitoes, simply want your blood. Your job is to keep insects from getting the food they want.

Be sure to sweep your floors and wipe off your countertops to keep ants from marching in. Store cereal, dried food, and cookies in sealed containers. Grain moths love that stuff. Leaving fruit out almost guarantees a visit from gnats, so keep it in the refrigerator, if possible. Clothes made from natural fabrics attract moths, so store them in plastic bags or use moth balls. Since bugs like moisture, look for small leaks under the sink. “
