Summer pest control is easy if you simply eliminate the resources pests look for. Removing food, water, and nesting materials from your property as best you can will go a long way towards protecting you and your home from pests.
Remove Nesting Materials
Different pests prefer different materials for living or nesting, but chances are your home offers lots of opportunities for them to set up shop. Here are some examples of attractive sites for pests that you should address:
- Mulch, grass, and brush piles
- Bushes or potted plants with lots of dead leaves
- Piles of rotting wood
- Old bird nests
- Gutter buildup.
Close Possible Entry Points
Pests have to find some form of entry in order to get inside your home. Common entry points are cracks and gaps in doors and windows. Take a look at these fixtures around your home for possible opportunities pests could take advantage of, and make repairs as necessary.
Don’t Leave Food Out
Pests love to eat and won’t pass up a free meal. While controlling the diet of some pests, like termites, is out of your control, preventing other pests from eating your left-out leftovers well help you keep them out of your home. Throw away food, take out garbage regularly, sweep, and mop to make your home less attractive to several pests.
Fix Water Leaks
Water leaks in and around your home encourage the kind of environments enjoyed by termites and mosquitoes. Address these problems to further arm yourself against pest infestations.
Treat Your Home
Have a professional treat your home with pesticides that are hazardous to insects and rodents but safe for you and your family. An exterminator can pinpoint the best areas to treat and help maintain a pest-free home.
