With the end of summer near, homeowners throughout Milwaukee, Madison and all of Wisconsin should not be surprised see to a number of pests heading indoors in anticipation of colder weather. These pests are box elder bugs, lady bugs and cluster flies and what they are doing is searching for the ideal place in your home to overwinter. Although these insects will not damage the integrity of your home’s structure and they are not a threat to your health, they can become an extreme annoyance as they congregate in large numbers. To help property owners who are worried about these nuisance, overwintering pests, Wil-Kil would like to offer some tips to help prevent them from gaining entry.
- Seal any cracks and crevices around your doors and windows
