LoveBug Pest Control is here to share our top 5 tips to help you prevent pests from invading your home during the chilly winter months.

Tip #1: Don’t leave dirty dishes in the sink. LoveBug Pest Control encourages you to wash them regularly or leave them in the dishwasher but be sure there is no food left on the dishes.

Tip #2: Store food in airtight containers. The smells from loose packages and containers attracts bugs.

Tip #3: Eliminate excess moisture, especially from leaky faucets or leaky pipes. Not only are the leaks not good for your home but they also draw bugs and insects.

Tips #4: Seal gaps in and around your home. Open gaps are an easy entrance for unwanted pests.

Tip #5: Keep countertops wiped clean. The popularity of granite countertops can make it hard to see crumbs and food debris, so be sure to be extra diligent about cleaning those countertops after every meal.
