How to Keep Your Home Bug Free
The best ways to get rid of bugs room by room—and keep them gone.
Uninvited guests can be the worst—especially if they have multiple legs. Whether we are talking an ant, a roach, or a fly, bugs are the last thing you want to deal with when you are relaxing in your space. And with so many pieces of conflicting advice on how to get rid of them, it can be hard to know where to start.
In the Kitchen
When shopping for, or displaying, fresh fruits and vegetables, the last thing you want is a side of fruit flies. But sometimes, it is unavoidable. Making a simple trap with vinegar and a paper funnel can catch a ton of flies—the fruit flies go in but they ca not get out!
It is important to make sure any bugs in your kitchen are not getting invited by unattended treats. Make sure that you do not leave cookies, crackers, or crumbs unwrapped and out. Those are bug magnets.
