Seal Foundation Cracks to Keep Pests Out
Unwelcome pests, like silverfish
, spiders, earwigs
, files and ants
, are typical with cooler temperatures. There are several things a homeowner can do to protect your home from these pesky insects.
- Clean up brush, and keep mulch and firewood piles away from the house to avoid creating habitats for such insects.
- Seal cracks, crevices and holes with caulk or weather-stripping around potential entry points, including pipes and utilities. Repair loose roof tiles and screens. Inspect windows and basement foundations, and repair loose mortar.
- Clean cupboard shelves of loose grain and starch-based sugary food, and place food in sealed containers or plastic bags.
