Garage Doors, A Pests Gateway

Now that the bugs are coming back out (I saw 2 bugs this past weekend) you may want to get thinking about stopping them.  Granted, 2 bugs is not an epidemic, but they are coming and it wont be long.  Many of us have garages that are attached to our home.  Very helpful, especially in the winter.  In the summer, it can be an easy refuge for bugs, critters, and pests.  I remember once that a cat got in my parents garage when I was younger.  He somehow slid underneath where the door meets the pavement.  The cat was ok, but the next morning when my dad opened the door, the cat ran out of there in a hurry.  My poor father practically fell over in fright.

All summer bugs can get underneath that door, lay  nests, and “bug” you.  Same goes for mice, rats, chipmunks, and more.  Garage Door Threshold

This threshold will work.  If you have a space between the floor and the door, pests are going to get in.  A buddy of mine installed one of these last year, and said he reduced spiders, bees, and mice.  Plus, in the winter, the breeze didn’t blow under there and drop the temperature in the garage.  A very useful product!

As always, Art.
