The man took to his social media account to explain how the hack works as he stood outside a window.
Dressed in a grey hoodie with matching joggers, he told viewers: “It’s that time of the year where all the insects living in your garden try to make their way inside.
Picking up a blue scan, he then shared that there’s an easy way to prevent this from happening.

According to House Digest, applying WD-40 where you’ve seen critters inside your home can “help get rid of them for good” too.
They explain: “Spray a small amount in areas where they are typically located, but also take a walk around the exterior of your home, looking for any signs of cracks.
“It does not take much room for a spider (and most other pests) to make their way inside through these holes.
“Spraying WD-40 into those cracks can help minimise their ability to enter.”
Meanwhile, Country Living revealed that they made their own natural repellent by mixing water with peppermint oil.
