Some of the most common household pests – some of which can help to be prevented through great sealants and weather stripping – include:

  • Roaches;
  • Rodents;
  • Snakes;
  • Bed bugs;
  • Ants;
  • Termites;
  • Flies;
  • Earwigs;
  • Beetles;
  • Fruit flies; and
  • Gnats.

Once these pests find their way into your home, getting rid of them can be nearly impossible.

Preventing Pest Infestations

One of the best ways to prevent any pests from entering your home or garage is to check the quality of your doors, windows, and garage door. You should:

  • Reseal windows;
  • Reseal doorframes;
  • Check for any cracks or holes in doors, windows, or garage door; and
  • Assess quality of wooden doors – which are often prone to decay (which can create an entryway for pests) as well as termites.


In some cases, replacing your garage door, windows, or doors throughout your home may be necessary. In other cases, taking immediate action to make repairs or performance maintenance may be enough to prevent pests from entering.
