Keep Bugs and Other Pests Out of your Home with a Carroll Garage Door

Keep Bugs and Other Pests Out of your Home with a Carroll Garage DoorWhile insects may be fascinating creatures to study, pretty much everyone agrees that they’re not welcome in peoples’ homes. Fleas, mosquitoes, and ticks can carry harmful diseases, and bees, wasps, and scorpions give humans painful stings. Even simple cockroaches can be harmful, exacerbating the symptoms of those who have allergies and asthma attacks. There are more than 10 quintillion bugs in the world and only about 70 million people, so unfortunately we’re heavily outnumbered. The good news is that there are steps that can be taken to bug-proof your home to prevent insects and other creatures from considering it a cozy place to stay.

Pull Up the Welcome Mat

The most fundamental way to prevent critters from gaining access to your home is by plugging up all entry points. That includes your garage door, especially if it’s old, sagging, and has holes in it. Also if it’s not functioning correctly and isn’t able to close all the way, that’s a cause for major concern. If you have holes in your door, or a gap in-between your door and the ground, it’s like you have that welcome mat out, saying “come right on in, put up your feet, and make yourself at home.” Shut the gates by getting a new, high-quality garage door or getting your garage door properly repaired by Carroll Garage Doors. If you’re dealing with a mechanical issue with it not shutting properly, we can also help you out with that in a jiffy.

Other Ways to Prevent Critters from Entering Your Garage

Sometimes the garage door isn’t the culprit. If you’ve found signs of insects, rodents, or other animals in your garage, check all around your garage for any gaps and fill them in with caulk. Also spray some pesticides and set traps to get rid of any animals that have already made their way into your garage. It’s important to get rid of them before they get too comfortable in your garage and make attempts to gain access to the rest of your home. Eeps!
