Dispose of any extra compost. Always make sure that a six inch space is between your foundation and any flowerbeds or shrubs. This can include eradicating any compost, grass and dead leaves directly against the home’s exterior.

Check all the screens on the doors, vents and windows. It’s vital that crawl space and attic screens are in one piece and not faulty. The entry door should seal tightly and securely, allowing no space for harmful pests to enter; given that they definitely will if they can.

Be sure that the windows and doors contain weather stripping that is intact and free from damages. When you notice weather stripping absent or any sort of damage, it needs to be fixed. Your lower level entrances need secure weather stripping. If you can see light below or around a doorway (or window) it should be replaced.
