Summer is just around the corner and the temperature is ideal for backyard pests to start crawling their way back in to your home.
Many pests and critters lie dormant in the cold winter season, only to make their way back when spring arrives. If preventative measures are not taken, pests can ruin summer barbecues, invade your sweets stash, and give you scratchy red bites up and down your legs.
Before you realize it, your house will be full of pesky pests that just won’t go.
Here are a few tips to help you keep your home a pest-free zone this summer.
Block Their Entry
Be it windows, cracks, open door, or whatever else, pests will find various ways to gain entryway into your home. You should take proactive measures and block, fix, and seal anything that can let a pest into your home.
Keep Your Kitchen Clean
Food crumbs or an unsealed bowl of food are an open picnic invitation for ants, flies and other pests. Make sure you keep your kitchen clean and tidy after you’re done working. Sweep the countertops, put uneaten food back in the fridge, and take the trash out regularly.
Get Rid of Stagnant Water
Do you regularly let the dishes pile up in the sink and then just leave them in a sink full of water to soak overnight? Chances are a horde of mosquitoes will soon start breeding in that standing water. If there are any leaks, open pots of water, or other stagnant water bodies in your home, pests will invade it.
Plants and mulch are hotspots for insects and various pests that like to munch on everything. Debris and overgrown bushes provide optimal shelter spots for a variety of pests. Make sure to keep your yard tidy, trim overgrown shrubbery and rake away the debris on a regular basis.
Hire a Pest Exterminator
Sometimes, despite your best efforts, those persistent pests still manage to make their way inside your house. Before you know it, your beloved home will be a victim to a pest infestation. Bug repellents and pesticides may work for some time, but then eventually you will have to call in the pros for proper, effective fumigation services.
