Moving Tips: Ensure the new home is bug-free

Bugs need to be removed from your home.

Bugs need to be removed from your home.

After your moving company leaves and you unpack all of your belongings, you may notice that there are some bug issues in your new home. This happens, and while unpleasant, you shouldn't be alarmed. Unless it is a complete infestation, there are some easy ways to ensure that these critters won't bother you.

One of the best options you can take advantage of is a bug fogger, which kills all of the current bugs in a certain area and discourages more from entering. Put it in the lowest level of the home, and set it off. It could do a lot to take care of the problem. However, if it is in an area you frequent, you may need to cover some items. Also you need to avoid the area for as much as a day to let it set in and the toxins to go away.

Another great idea is to purchase a special spray that is used for the outside of the home. There are many anti-bug options available that you can spray along your foundation. This could keep further bugs out for a set amount of time. Just keep up with the applications, as these need to be reapplied every couple of months.

When all else fails, kill the bugs that you have in your home. If you've taken measures to prevent more from coming in, be certain that any that you see are killed, as this will not only help take care of the problem, but it will give you peace of mind.

If the situation is out of control and you don't know what to do, it is important to call an exterminator to fix the problem. However, keep in mind that no home will ever be completely without bugs. Especially if you live in a highly wooded area, these are common, and you may need to just take precautions from time to time.
