Your home is cozy, warm and safe during the winter and unwanted creepy, crawly things think so too! Spiders, cockroaches, ants, mites and other pests are not only a nuisance, but they carry disease that can make you and your family sick. Along with sealing holes, cracks and doors, you can use an insecticide to keep unwanted insects out of your home.
