Fun in the sun, pest free!

Summer is a time for fun in the sun, but unfortunately, it's also a time when pests can be more prevalent. With the warm weather and increased humidity, pests such as mosquitoes, ants, and flies can become a real nuisance. Here are some tips on how to keep pests away during the summer months.

  • Seal Up Cracks and Holes

Pests can easily make their way into your home through cracks and holes in the walls or foundation. Seal up any openings you find with caulk or another sealant to prevent them from coming inside.

  • Keep Your Home Clean

Keeping your home clean is essential in preventing pests from taking up residence. Clean up spills and crumbs immediately, and don't leave dishes in the sink overnight. Sweep and mop regularly to keep your floors free of debris.

  • Properly Store Food

Pests are attracted to food, so it's important to store it properly. Keep food in airtight containers, and make sure to throw away any expired items. Don't leave pet food out overnight, either.

  • Maintain Your Yard

Your yard can be a breeding ground for pests, so it's important to maintain it properly. Keep your grass trimmed, and remove any standing water that can attract mosquitoes. Don't leave piles of leaves or other debris lying around, as they can provide a place for pests to hide.

  • Install Screens

Installing screens on your doors and windows is a great way to keep pests out while still allowing fresh air to circulate. Make sure to repair any tears or holes in the screens as soon as you notice them.

  • Use Natural Repellents

There are many natural repellents that can help keep pests away. Citronella candles and essential oils such as peppermint, eucalyptus, and lavender can all help repel mosquitoes and other pests. You can also try planting herbs such as basil and mint around your home, as they can act as natural repellents.
