During the warmer seasons of the year, it’s not recommended to leave water stagnant for more than 3-4 days. Numerous life species can start breeding there, including mosquitoes, flies and even roaches.

Pay attention also to dog bowls, baths and buckets outside your house, and even puddles on your yard. They can be a major factor for attracting pests. It’s easy to prevent such kind of breeding for these insects. Just dump everything after gardening and keep an eye on places where water can possibly lie stagnant.

Gutters are one usual place that can house pests. They always hold moisture, so during summer, cockroaches and other insects can easily make gutters their home. But where will they go to get some food? It’s obvious that they will gradually populate your house creating stable colonies.

It is important you clean gutters every year. Gutters that are clogged with old tree leaves might also be the source of earthworms climbing up to the roof of your house. It’s awful to watch and even realize that such things do exist in your own house. Therefore, always pay close attention to the cleanness of your roof.
