1. Repair Damaged Roof Tiles

A damaged roof can provide pests with easy access to the home. Homeowners should check their roofing spaces and repair damaged areas before the weather gets warmer.

2. Install Mesh Ventilation Covers

Ants, mosquitoes and other pests enter homes through the air vents. To prevent an infestation in their property, homeowners can install mesh ventilation covers.

3. Keep Bedroom Windows Shut And Vacuum Regularly

Bedroom windows provide an easy entrance point for common household pests such as wasps and mosquitoes. Homeowners should keep all bedroom windows shut and remember to vacuum regularly to remove larvae.

4. Install A Fly Screen In Windows

Fly screens can help protect homes against numerous bugs, including wasps, bees and mosquitoes. Simply installing a screen in the springtime is the best way to ensure optimal protection for the home throughout the warmer months.

5. Remove Standing Water

Standing water around the home should be removed quickly. It can attract a wide range of bugs, including mosquitoes and ants and form a dangerous hub of bug activity around the home.
