How do I Keep Bugs Out of My Garage?

Neighborhood Garage Door Repair knows how pesky bugs can be when they start to take over your garage. They don’t even care what season it is, they will make themselves at home whenever they feel like it. Regardless of the time of year, keeping them out is going to be your main goal.

In certain situations, you might find that the presence of bugs is because of a garage door in need of repair. Other instances could be as simple as a housekeeping issue. No matter the reason, you will need to take an approach to ensure that the garage is secure.

Food

Some people don’t even think about putting food in their garage, while others rely on the extra space if they don’t have enough storage in their kitchen. Typically you are going to find non-perishable food items or an extra freezer in the garage. Another food that is commonly kept in the garage is that of your pets!

Bugs aren’t going to care what kind of food you are storing in your garage, so it is up to the owner to ensure that any and all food is sealed properly. Poorly sealed food is going to be a feeding ground for hungry bugs. Stopping this problem at the source will help prevent food infestation and keep the bugs from breeding even more.

Keeping It Dry

When you leave your garage door open, rain will find its way into your garage and settle in places you might not normally check. Garbage cans, lids, containers, and planters are just a few places that water can gather. This is why it is a great idea to make sure your garage is closed during inclement weather or while using your water hose.

Mosquitoes love standing water during warmer weather and can even be tempted into garages that have a water heater in them. This is why it is important to quickly clean up any damp areas or wet spots in your garage. This will keep the mosquitoes out and leave you with peace of mind.

Stay On The Defense

For most types of bugs, you will want to use bug spray around the baseboards of your home and garage. Don’t just think that winged bugs are the only ones who can make appearances in your garage. It is always a great idea to place ant traps near any openings of your garage to prevent these pests.

Seal Your Garage

While everything we have mentioned is an awesome place to start, it won’t do much good if your garage isn’t properly sealed. Your garage door should seal completely when closed, along with any windows and doors. As we are sure you know, bugs can enter through even the tiniest of spaces.

They sent Doug Fussell out to my house on the day after Christmas! I had only called them three days before! Doug was a premier technician, very thorough and very efficient. I expected him to take two days, since he was replacing two doors and adding openers on each door. He only took the daylight hours of one day! I could not believe how fast he was! In addition, he thoroughly taught me how to use the remote openers. I highly recommend them to anyone!

We just bought a home and this company was so understanding as I had to change the appointment time a few times. Then the tech came out and was so kind and helpful. I could not have asked for a better experience and will suggest them to anyone who needs work done on their garage door!

My garage door broke on a Saturday night as I was getting ready to leave for a holiday party. Kelvin was here within 30 minutes. He reviewed everything with me that was happening with my door. He gave me the estimates of what was immediately needed to be done in order for my door to raise and then what I will need to have done very soon. I could see all the problems he pointed out to me and I decided to have everything done. He completed everything that night. I was very satisfied with Kelvin’s professionalism and the work he did. Thank you again.
