What Can I do to Keep Crickets Out of My Garage?

Your garage can be a hotbed for bugs and animals. One of the most common bugs we see in garage doors is crickets. This is because crickets are drawn to the warmth and dryness your garage has to offer. Luckily, there are steps you can take to make sure crickets stay out of your garage. 

Check Your Garage Door Seal

The seal of your garage door is there to protect your garage from the elements. Mainly used to keep the weather out, garage door seals also help prevent critters from entering your garage. If you notice an uptick in the number of pests or animals found in your garage, it could be due to seal damage. 

Since it’s exposed to the elements, your seal can easily be damaged. It can also suffer from typical wear and tear and old age. You should seek professional help to make sure your garage door seal isn’t damaged. 

Check The Alignment

If your garage door is misaligned, it may leave openings to your garage. Noticing misalignment could be difficult to the untrained eye. This is because your garage door can still function properly while misaligned. If your seal is undamaged but you’re still noticing crickets in your garage, it could be because it’s misaligned. 

Call a professional to make sure your garage door is where it needs to be. If it’s misaligned, technicians will promptly realign it. You will notice an immediate difference in the number of crickets in your garage. 

Look For Holes or Cracks in Your Garage

One of the most common ways crickets finds their way into your garage is through cracks and holes. Since your garage door is exposed to the elements, bad weather or any other outside force can cause damage to your door. This leaves your garage and its belongings vulnerable. 

You should take a peek at your garage door to make sure there are no holes or cracks in your door. Not only do these holes and cracks make it easier for critters to enter your garage, but they also pose a legitimate threat to the wellbeing of your door. If you notice damage, you should seek immediate professional help. 

Don’t Leave Your Door Open 

We know that some people enjoy hanging out in their garage. We also know that some people like keeping their garage door open most of the day. This easily allows critters to wander into your garage. 

If you want to keep crickets out of your garage, avoid leaving your garage open for an extended period of time. Also, avoid leaving any garage door windows open for a long period of time. This is the easiest way to keep crickets out of your garage. 

Take Steps to Get Rid of Crickets

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.
