  1. Always Check Shoes And Socks
    This is a common practice for those in warm countries where venomous creatures are found in their millions. But it’s also important here in the U.S. Before you head out for the day, check your shoes and socks for small spiders and scorpions. These creatures love to hide out in dark warm places and will be more likely to sting or bite your foot if they are in danger of being stepped on.
  2. Remove Brush Near The Home
    Scorpions and snakes in particular like the shade and enclosed comfort of leaves and other lawn waste. To ensure they don’t gather close to the home, remove all waste as soon as possible. You should also check lawn waste carefully if your children or pets spend a lot of their time outside. Advise children to avoid playing with brush when they’re in the yard.
  3. Watch For Nests In Roofing Areas
    Hornets, bees and other creatures like to build nests in the corners of the home and shed roofs. Check your roof regularly for hives and watch for a large accumulation of insects, particularly in the evening time when temperatures cool. If you identify a nest close to your home, contact a local removal specialist to identify the creature and take them away safely from the property.
