The Ultimate Guide to Keeping Your Home Bug-Free


Experiencing a bug infestation in your home is a chilling experience no one likes. While not all pests are harmful, they can give us a sense of discomfort being an invasion into our living quarters. Like humans and animals, insects need food, water and shelter to survive and multiply.

Bugs in your home can be a real nuisance, not to mention a potential health hazard. From pesky flies and ants to creepy crawlies like spiders and centipedes, these unwanted visitors can make your home an uncomfortable place to live. Fortunately, there are a variety of steps you can take to keep your home bug-free. In this ultimate guide, we’ll cover everything you need to know to keep bugs out of your home for good.

Keep Your Home Clean and Tidy

One of the easiest ways to prevent bugs from entering your home is to keep it clean and tidy. This means regularly cleaning your floors, countertops, and other surfaces, as well as keeping your dishes clean and your garbage disposed of properly. Food and crumbs left out can attract all sorts of bugs, so make sure you’re diligent about cleaning up after meals.

Seal Up Entry Points

Bugs can enter your home through even the tiniest cracks and gaps. To prevent this, make sure all windows and doors are properly sealed. Use caulk or weather stripping to seal any gaps around windows and doors, and consider installing door sweeps to keep bugs out from under doors.

Eliminate Standing Water

Standing water is a breeding ground for mosquitoes and other bugs. Make sure there are no areas of standing water around your home, such as in birdbaths or flower pots. If you have a pool, make sure it’s properly maintained and cleaned.

Use Natural Repellents

There are a variety of natural bug repellents you can use to keep bugs out of your home. Essential oils like peppermint, lavender, and eucalyptus can help repel bugs, and you can even make your own natural bug spray by mixing essential oils with water.

Keep Your Yard Maintained

Keeping your yard maintained can go a long way towards preventing bugs from entering your home. Trim any bushes or trees that are touching your home, and keep your lawn mowed and free of debris.

Call in the Professionals

If you’ve tried everything and still can’t seem to keep bugs out of your home, it may be time to call in the professionals. Pest control companies can help identify the source of the problem and provide targeted solutions to keep bugs out for good.

In conclusion, keeping your home bug-free requires a combination of diligence and preventative measures. By keeping your home clean and tidy, sealing up entry points, eliminating standing water, using natural repellents, maintaining your yard, and calling in the professionals if necessary, you can create a bug-free environment for you and your family to enjoy.

BugBros is NOT exaggerating when they guarantee that you’ll be a Crazy Happy customer. We had the privilege of having Dustin visit our house today for our initial service, and he blew our expectations out of the water. He addressed every single question we had (of which we had many) with the utmost... knowledge, enthusiasm, and care. Not only do we feel 100x more secure from pests than we did before, but we’re genuinely so excited to have someone reliable like Dustin [and the BugBros] team to depend on for all future needs. Consider us Crazy Happy!read more
