How to pestproof your house (Page 2)


Step 5. Insects can easily enter your house through a basement floor drain. The drain hole can be filled with a tennis ball that will float out of the way to allow water into the drain if the floor is flooded.

 

Step 6. Check the foundation of your house for anthills, wasp’s nests and termite tunnels. If you find any of these nests, remove them and dose off the points of entry.

 

Step 7. Be especially watchful in moist areas of the house where many insects prefer to be. Eliminate the access points and install a dehumidifier to make the area less attractive to pests.

 

Step 8. If you ever find evidence of termite-eaten wood, call an exterminator immediately These technicians can kill all the termites and check for other harmful species, like carpenter ants.
