There are many measures a homeowner can take to try and eliminate bugs and pests. However, many of these methods do not get to the real problem. When it comes to pest control, it is critical to find and eliminate the source of the infestation. Perhaps the most important preventive measure a homeowner can take when trying to rid their home of pests and insects, is to eliminate any standing water from their property. Although, this can be problematic because many homeowners may not even realize they have standing water near or on their property.

Standing water facilitates the growth of bacteria and many other microorganisms. Many bugs and other pests enjoy feeding on these smaller organisms. This results in many bugs congregating near water sources. In fact, there are a multitude of species of insects, such as mosquitos, that actually lay their eggs in water. There are several species of flies and water beetles that lay their eggs in water, as well. If these bugs are laying eggs in even the smallest bodies of water near your home, you can be sure that they will be making some visits to your home.
