Pest Control

In order to keep your house free of pesky insects, go ahead and let a few spiders in. Spiders eat insects, and they don’t take up much space. If you really don’t like spiders, let a few cats in. Cats eat spiders. If your cats get out of control, just buy yourself a bird of prey. You may need to remove part of your roof at this stage, but your home will be so nice without any nasty insects crawling around.

Fruit Flies

Fruit flies are a good choice of insect to invite into your home. They are small, lightweight and they don’t bite unless you are a piece of fruit. Fruit flies are well respected in the insect kingdom. Keeping a few around will scare off other insects, and homes protected by fruit flies are generally offered a discount on home insurance premiums.
