It’s easy to get frustrated with the pests in your home. You kill a scorpion one night, then find a spider in your home the next night. You think, “How do these bugs keep getting in?”
You think, “Where are these bugs coming from?”
You wonder, “Is there something that I can be doing to keep spiders and scorpions out of my house?”
Yes, there is something that you can do to keep spiders and scorpions out of your home. Here are some tips:
Frequent Cleaning: How often do you vacuum? How often do you sweep and mop? How often do you clean the windows and baseboards? These are the things that need to be done at least twice a week to ensure spiders and scorpions don’t make their way into your home. Many times, they come in simply because the kids haven’t picked up the floor in a few weeks, and things are piling up, making for great hiding spots.
Sealing: Spiders and scorpions, especially scorpions, can fit through cracks you can barely even see. Go around the baseboards and the foundation of your home with something as simple as caulking to seal those tiny cracks. If the baseboards are pulling away from the wall, if the corners don’t align perfectly, or if the windows are showing cracks along the house siding, use some caulking to seal those areas.
It’s the Season: Fall is the season for these types of pests. Scorpions and spiders began to make their way into your home to escape the evening chill.
