Enlist your family
Even though you may remember to clean and avoid trouble spots, other members of your family should be notified, too. If your kids and spouse know not to leave crumbs and food lying around your home, then you can avoid pest infestations.
When you work together with your family to avoid pest infestations, then you can increase the chances that pests will stay away from your home. Nobody wants to deal with a pest problem, so take all the necessary precautionary steps that you can -- including enlisting your family's help!
