While it's inevitable that leaves, pine cones and needles may occasionally make their way into your gutters, everyone can attest to the importance of keeping pests from infiltrating your home. Gutters certainly serve as an inviting habitat for all kinds of insects and animals, from a secluded hideout for beehives to a perfect perching place for birds. While installing LeafFilter will ensure the utmost protection when it comes to guarding your gutter, there are still a few other precautions you can take to keep other areas of your roof void of unwanted visitors.
