Save money keeping bugs out of your house by cutting all the shrubs and foliage 3 feet away from your home.  Keeping the siding and the foundation free from vegetation is a thrift friendly way to save on bug spray and exterminators.

Here are some more frugal tips to save money controlling pests.

 

- Spray your house yourself.  There are many products on the market that do a very good job of keeping bugs out of your house.  If you keep up with it, you shouldn't need professional help.
 
- Inspect your house regularly for termites.  Make sure there are no "tunnels" or other signs of infestation.
 
- Take care of any water damage to your home immediately.  Rotting wood always attracts insectsand destroys your home. 
 
- Redo your caulking around bathtubs and sinks so that it is always tight and firm.
 
- Ants are easily killed by scattering oatmeal around them.  They eat it, bloat up, and die.
