Is there anything worse than seeing a bug crawling about from the corner of your eye? We think not. And sad to say, summer is rife with creepy, multi-legged pests squeezing through cracks into your homes.
But just because the heat is up, doesn’t mean these bugs have to find a way into your house. In fact, if you keep your abode clean, you have a fighting change of keeping your home bug-free.
Molly Maid has created this infographic to help you keep the bugs away this summer. Some tips include:
Avoid flies by cleaning your dishes ASAP, especially if they’re sporting gross, sticky residue. Before you scrape the leftovers into the garbage, drain the moisture and throw the scraps in a tied bag in a trash can.
Clean around the fridge, stove and dishwasher to remove food crumbs and keep cockroaches at bay. And make sure to clean up liquids as well.
Cut back bushes and tree branches around your house, and discard piles of leaves that can be used as nesting spots for bugs and other pests.
Seal cracks in windows, doors and floorboards.
