Spiders, cockroaches, ants and more may scurry away from the rainy weather, and once taken out their natural habitat they could land in your home.

President and owner of Pest Patrol Incorporated, Kent Nielsen says, the moisture levels have risen.

Pest Patrol workers are taking many calls with spraying and attacking residential neighborhoods.

Experts with Pest Patrol share tips on how you can protect your home.

The company says to make sure your home has well-painted walls. This will fight against certain ants and termites.

Keep your home sealed.

As for the mosquitoes, mow your lawn and get rid of any standing water. Lastly, it is a good idea to put your dog food up so ants and cockroaches will not have a food source.​
