The best prevention tip when it comes to roaches is maintaining good sanitation conditions. It is important to clean up spilled food and water quickly, eliminate harbuorage and pathway areas by sealing cracks and crevices, repair water leaks and inspect incoming foods and packaging for any pests. During the summer months, cockroach activity increases, however, keeping your space as cool as possible can help deter cockroaches from entering.
House Flies Prevention
The main tip for avoiding fly infestations is to eliminate places where they might breed. Don’t keep uncovered trash cans under the sink and rinse food containers before you throw them away. It is also important to scoop up and dispose of pet waste.
For the most part, fleas are difficult to prevent in homes where house pets wander outside the home. Be sure that your pets are frequently checked and treated for fleas, and be sure that crawl spaces are screened in so that wild animals that may transmit fleas cannot enter. Frequently clean areas in which fleas take refuge, such as hidden deep in the fibers of your carpeting, furniture, and pet's bed
Pantry Pests Prevention
When trying to avoid an infestation of pantry pests, try not to buy more than your family can and will use in between two to four months. In the event you store food for a more extensive amount of time, make sure that all containers and storage boxes are sealed well. Don’t make it a habit to purchase damaged packages. When storing food that is no longer factory sealed, pack it in containers that have tightly fitted lids. It is important to check stored food on a frequent basis for pest infestation and discard anything harboring them quickly. It is recommended to vacuum cabinets rather than using water when trying to remove dust and dirt.

Pests typically come into homes searching for food, shelter and surroundings with the right humidity or temperature. When your house provides any of these conditions, household pests could potentially become a problem. The key to successful control is to do away with one or more of these factors.
There are several preventative measures that can be taken in order to help keep pests at bay, or at least away from your living space. For specific household pests there are both particular and general tips to keep them from invading your home or place of business.
Below are a few prevention tips to help keep the most common household pests away.
When trying to prevent spiders from infesting your home it is important to ensure all window and door screens are free of holes and are properly installed. Inspect and caulk all cracks or entry points around the exterior of the home in order to control both spiders as well as the insects on which they feed from entering the home. If there are signs of spiders already in your home, it is important to vacuum all webs and eggs.
- Remove all food sources
-Seal all cracks and crevices (including pavement and concrete slabs
- Locate and eliminate nests
- Correct drainage in house plants
Fabric Pests Prevention
Before storing clothing for a long period of time, wash or dry clean them, particularly woolens. Maintain cleanliness in closets and drawers. Make sure to vacuum under and behind furniture to prevent the build up of lint and hair.
More general household pest control and Bed Bug Prevention tips include:
- Clean out all areas that make good homes for pests. Clean areas that collect grease, food scraps or spilling’s that can provide food source.
- Trim and clear out excessive foliage from around the outside of the foundations of the home. High grass, unkempt bushes and trees provide excellent hiding places for insects.
- Remove unnecessary storage boxes from the attic or basement. Again, areas like these have the potential for great hiding places.
- In the event flour and grain pests are your particular problem, make sure that you first locate where they are coming from and remove the infested material. Go through cereal boxes, spices, flour, beans and dry pet food to check for infestations.
- Store dried foods in tightly sealed containers made of glass or plastic and avoid sacks, baggies and cardboard boxes.
- Eliminate excessive clutter.
Cleanliness can’t ensure that a home will remain pest free, but good housekeeping does go a long way in preventing problems before they become infestations!
