QUICK STEPS TO KEEP BUGS OUT OF THE HOUSE
Seal cracks and holes around your home.
Repair holes and tears in window screens.
Don't pile mulch or store firewood against your home's foundation.
Store all food in tightly sealed containers.
Bugs like a nice home for the same basic reasons you do. They want food, water, and shelter. If they can find these in your house, they'll move in.
Spiders survive by eating other bugs. So If you have spiders in the house, that means you have other bugs inside too.
Reduce the number of bugs trying to get inside by applying an outdoor multi-insect killer like Ortho® Bug B Gon® Insect Killer for Lawns.
