Keeping Pests Away During Summer Months
There is nothing more frustrating than pests that ruin a picnic! A line of ants or a swarm of mosquitoes. Your morning can be completely ruined by the sight of a spider, cockroach or mouse in the house!
Here are some great tips to keep the bugs and critters away from your home and yard this summer!
- Block Entry to the Home
The first line of defense is for you to make it difficult for pests to find entry to the house. Check all screens for holes and repair if any are found. Check the doors and windows for gaps and replace window stripping if needed.
- Clean Your Kitchen
Piles of crumbs on the counter or floor is a treasure chest for ants and other hungry insects. You want to keep them away so make sure you don’t offer any treasure to be found! Wipe the counters, sweep the floors and keep the food put away! Take the trash out often.
- Get Rid of Standing Water Cave Creek Pest Control AZ
To control mosquitoes, you have to get rid of standing water. Having standing water is a breeding ground for mosquitoes. Sometimes it is easy to miss standing water so walk your property often to check for it. Look in rain spouts, leaks near air conditioning units, and pick up any toys left scattered in the yard.
- Maintain the Yard
Keep landscaping maintained. This will help to avoid overgrowth that is perfect for pests and their nests. Keep the bushes trimmed and keep trees away from the house. Rake up any debris and weed the yard! Cave Creek Pest Control AZ
