If you are experiencing problems with insects, be sure to vacuum all rugs and carpets throughout your home. You will vacuum up ants, bugs and other critters that are in the kitchen, living room and den. When you are done, properly dispose of the bag.
DO you have a fruit fly issue? You may have to check your drain for consistency. To test this you just need to cover your drains with something that is transparent and watch for fruit flies.
