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.
