Make sure there’s no standing water in and around your home. This is especially important in and around air conditioning units. Make sure there’s no muddy areas or extreme amounts of condensation in the vicinity of your HVAC unit. Animal carcassses also draw insects – so check to see if there’s any dead mice, lizards, birds, or any other animal that might be drawing in flies.
Make sure to regularly clean your central air conditioning unit – as growing dirt or wetness will lure insects like silverfish. Try disconnecting your air conditioner, and using a shop vacuum to clean off all residue or dust. Remove the unit fan and rinse off the blades. When things are dry, put the unit back together.
Make sure to also seal up all air ducts and ensure that screens are installed on air vents. Sealing up ductwork cracking prevents bugs from entering your property. Don’t use duct tape for this – as ductwork will likely crack as the HVAC unit heats up and cools down. We recommend using foil tape or water-based sealant material for sealing ductwork rather than duct tape. Screens prevent bugs from living in your HVAC system – just buy screen material from a hardware store and cut it to fit your vent dimensions, then attach it with staples. Then simply caulk exposed parts around your vent screens!
