Keep food sealed

Food is a major attractor of bugs.  When we leave food on the counters, on the floor or even in the trash can, bugs will find their way to them.  Keeping food sealed in Ziploc bags, re-sealable containers and wiped up after eating will help keep the bugs away.


When throwing away food, make sure that you take your trash out.  If you are throwing away leftover food, don’t put it into a fresh garbage bag.  Take the leftovers and put them into a Walmart or other plastic grocery bag.  Then tie the bag up and bring it out to the trash can.

The trash can should also be covered and away from the house.  When we have the trash in the garage or in the back of the house where it isn’t coming in contact with the house, bugs are less than likely to come inside.

Remove standing water

Next to food bugs need water.  When we have standing water in our yards and on our property, bugs will migrate to them.  They will also lay their eggs in these water sources which will quickly hatch.  If you have a storm and water is in your yard, keep your windows and doors closed.  Fill in any potholes you may have in your yard as well. 

Call a professional

If you start seeing bugs you want to call a professional.  Make an appointment with your neighbors as well.  The last thing you want to do is drive your bugs from your house to your neighbors.  Stopping the infestation at the source is the best way to get rid of them all.
