Eliminate sources of water. Make sure that gutters are clear of debris and are allowing water to flow away from your home. Fix leaky outdoor and indoor pipes and fixtures. Use dehumidifiers to eliminate excess moisture in your home.
Eliminate sources of shelter. Stack firewood a distance away from the outside of your home and remove piles of debris from your yard.
