Clean Up the Yard and Garage
Bugs are attracted to leaves, mulch, wet soil, and other common fall materials. So clean them up! Make sure debris doesn't stay piled on your lawn or against your house (this includes mulching projects). Take the time to clean any trash in your garage or shed as well, so fall pests have fewer places to hide.

Trim Trees and Bushes
Generally, you never want branches or leaves close to your house, especially if they are brushing against your roof or siding. This makes it much easier for fall pests to gain entry, and can cause other problems during storms. So trim your plant growth down before it gets too chilly!
