Preparing for Spring Insects

Spring is almost upon us. Not onlyPreparing for Spring Insects does spring bring a lot of things to look forward to, like warmer weather and sunshine, but it also inevitably brings some uninvited guests that are not welcome: insects.

But don’t fear, there are several things you can do to help prepare for these uninvited house guests. Follow these simple steps to prepare for your unwanted guests and to evict them for good.

Spring Cleaning

As temperatures begin to rise, insects become more active, which is primetime for these creepy, crawly critters to look for a nice warm and moist place to crash. When trying to avoid such squatters, plan to give your home a thorough clean. Pay special attention to cabinets, basements, garages, closets and window screens. Also, make sure any food waste has been properly cleaned up and all garbage has been thrown away promptly.

Time to Declutter

Another key element to address to prepare for the possibility of spring insects is decluttering your home. As items accumulate, they become prime spots for insects to congregate and take refuge in. By decluttering your home, you will eliminate some problem areas that could be a higher threat for spring insects.

Inspect For Potential Problem Areas

Insects can invade your home in several ways, so make sure to inspect and address any potential problem areas that could make that invasion easier. As you do your spring cleaning, make note of areas that need to be addressed like cracks, holes, leaky faucets or wood damage. In order to save yourself more time, money and headaches in the long run, it’s best to get these issues fixed promptly.
