While you might expect to see an ant or two, if you start seeing that you have an insect problem, it’s time to contact an exterminator to insect proof your home from the outside in.

Prevent Insects From Entering Your Home

To start preventing insects in your home, it’s important to find ways to keep insects out in the first place. This can be done by ensuring that every exterior door has a good threshold, and that openings for pipes and wires are closed tightly using caulk. Talk with your exterminator about applying a safe barrier treatment of insecticides to keep insects from coming near your property. You should also make sure all windows are properly sealed, and repair any rips in your screens.
