Prevention. In order to prevent pest infestations, you must first determine which pests you wish to protect your home against. You need to understand their breeding cycles, what they feed on, which environments they thrive in, and how they go about entering a home.
Once you have armed yourself with that necessary knowledge, you can go ahead with the prevention process. Prevention is a simple concept, but it takes some thought and effort.
First, you must cut off all points of entry. Depending on the pest, this could mean applying weather stripping to doors, caulking cracks and crevices in the wall, and/or sealing gaps in window openings.
Next, you must ensure that you aren’t providing a food source for pests. Again, do your research here. Lastly, your home environment should not be conducive to pest breeding. For example, many pests thrive in warm, damp areas; therefore, you should eliminate that type of environment in your home.

Borax is a great insect poison. If you have roaches in the house, sprinkle it where you know they hang out (and where you know children and/or animals won’t be playing). For ants, mix borax with sugar and sprinkle the mixture around the perimeter of your foundation. The sugar will attract the ants, and the borax will poison them.

Catch one of the bugs and examine it closely. If this proves to be a challenge, hang some fly paper for an hour or so to capture a few of the little buggers. Common household fruit flies (aka Drosophila) grow to a maximum size of 1/8th inch (3mm) long and typically have brownish or yellowish bodies and red eyes. They are also known to be clumsy fliers - a common experience in infested areas is to feel these little bugs kamikaze into your bare skin and face out of nowhere.
2. Eliminate the sources of the fruit fly infestation
Ok, so you're sure you've got fruit flies, now what? Now it's time to cut off their supplies - food, shelter and breeding ability.

Bed bugs extermination should be addressed as a priority as soon as it is discovered that there is an infestation of these insects present. The creatures are small parasitic insects belonging to the Cimicidae family. They feed mainly on the blood of humans and various other warm-blooded animals. The most common form of bed bug is the Cimex lectularius which is the type usually associated with humans. It is a misconception that bed bugs are invisible to the naked eye, in fact, they measure about 4 to 5 mm long and about 1.5 to 3 mm wide.These insects feed on blood and dry skin and will often climb walls and ceilings then drop on their victims upon detecting body heat. Their peak feeding periods are just before sunrise but are known to feed at other times if the opportunity arises. The bugs feed by inserting two hollow tubes through the skin of their victims. They inject their saliva which contains a combination of anticoagulants and anesthetics, through the one tube and withdraw the blood through the other tube. One of the first signs of the presence of bed bugs are when swollen, red, itchy spots appear on the body. These spots may be painful and in certain circumstances can become infected and look extremely unpleasant. A doctors prescription will normally clear up this condition.There are a number of ways to get rid of these insects. Using chemicals is one way, but care should be taken if there are children and pets in the vicinity. To begin, all soft furnishings and bedding should be removed and placed into plastic bags which should then be sealed. This will ensure that the bugs are not transported to any other rooms.The collected items should then be laundered at a very high temperature. Tumble dry the items also at as high a temperature as possible for at least ten minutes. Discard any items that cannot be laundered or tumble dried.Using a vacuum cleaner, clean all of the furniture both inside and out to remove all traces of larvae and eggs, which being small, are difficult to detect. If the furniture can be left outside in summer or in winter, this should help to eliminate any remaining insects as they cannot tolerate very hot or very cold temperatures.Any one of a number of chemical insect killers may now be employed in the infected room once it has been determined that it is now free of all insect residue. Check inside of smoke detectors and electrical sockets for any traces of insects. Traces of dark fecal matter are a clue of their presence. If unsure about the use of chemicals or if the infestation is a large one, consider calling in a professional exterminator. An alternative method of clearing the bugs is by the use of high powered steam cleaning. A unit may be purchased for around $50. Begin by determining where the bugs are living. A good start would be to spray scalding hot steam into all cracks for about two to three seconds. This should be done regularly until all traces of the insects disappear and the process of bed bugs extermination is complete.

The most common cause of mosquito infestation is standing water outside. This could be anything from the kiddie pool behind the house to that tiny puddle of water in your driveway. Any water that has been sitting for a long period of time in a mosquito zone will become a mosquito breeding ground at one point or another. Investigate your yard for culprits and clean them up immediately.
The frigid temps of winter have got us shivering even if we do layer on the outerwear. The one saving grace of this awfully suffering climate is the sanctuary called home.
Ah, home, every man's castle, where each one of us can take comfort from the freeze of this brutal season!
Considering the above, imagine one family's grief upon returning home from work during a particular cold spell. The welcoming they encountered when arriving at the doorstep was not as welcoming as they would have liked. A horrid odor accosted their nostrils: the unmistaken putrid stink of a skunk.
Holding their noses, the family members attempted to locate any sign of black fur with a white strip running through it. No visible sign - thankfully - of the dreaded species. But the undeniable powerful reek of a skunk's spray was there - everywhere - in every nook and cranny - on all three levels of the structure!
So, in an uncomplicated one-time event of a skunk damaging property - an incident that the homeowner would not have been able to prevent - the policyholder's submitted related claim would most likely be honored and processed.
Naturally, not every occurrence is a 'black and white episode' (pun intended!) so it's best to consult with a knowledgeable independent agent about your coverage and how it pertains to the likelihood of a wild event like the aforementioned!
