While it's true that spring and summer are the busiest times for bugs coming into your home, winter is hardly a pest-free zone.

Here are 10 tips for keeping bugs and rodents out of your house:

  1. Keep your house clean and clutter-free. Be sure to wipe down surface areas and sweep after each meal.

  2. Keep food in airtight containers.

  3. Avoid storing paper bags under sinks.

  4. Use a broom to sweep down cobwebs.

  5. Keep trash cans and recycle tubs securely closed and away from the house. Make sure indoor trash cans have lids.

  6. Make sure holes or openings around windows and doors are properly sealed and caulked.

  7. Trim tree limbs and branches to keep them from getting too close to your house. This will help prevent easy access to the attic.

  8. To help keep termites away, avoid stacking firewood near your house, and keep it several feet off the ground.

  9. Make sure your dryer vent isn't broken or stuck in the open position.

  10. Install screens over chimney vents and openings.
